An interesting place to say the least. You arrive in a busy street (Xisi St South) and then you have no clue where to go to. The hotel is in a Hutong, and you have no clue what a Hutong is. You find out by asking pleople around, who don't speak English by the way, that a Hutong is a narrow alley. Actually, I knew that but the impact was there nonetheless. You go inside this hutong, turn right, turn left and where the heck is the hotel? Someone less brave would not have gone all the way (it is quite safe actually). Then you see a door at the very end of the alley, I mean, Hutong, hoping you are at the right place. You ring the bell. Phew, yes. OK. You enter. Now things change. There is a warm welcome and the inside is quite nice, clean and comfortable, looking Chinese, with a very friendly staff, spearheaded by Mark, who speaks very good English. The atmosphere is of a bed-and-breakfast. The breakfast is continental style, simple but much better than eating noodles for breakfast (as, believe me, happens in many hotels). As some people say, you get a different experience as if you were in a traditional hotel. Now, location is very convinient, and the subway system in Beijing is excellent! Survival tip when you walk around Beijing (and other places): take your own toilte paper.
