While I've had an apartment in Beijing for the bulk of the past 10 years, this is not the case now, so I've become a frequent guest at the Yo Yo. I know it is difficult to book, so I was not surprised that it was full when I needed to avail of it this week. Instead, I tried out the Super 8 and Starway (both in Shuangjing), some horrible place with pink carpets near Gongti (if I can dig up the name, I'll write a review), and the Home Hostel in Dianmen (which, was surprisingly cool).
Simply put, the Yo Yo is a level above the aforementioned properties. For starters, its location is pretty solid (~100 meters away from Sanlitun Lu). Second, the rooms are consistently clean (not the case at the other places), and the beds are comfortable. Third, it has an elevator.
While it is not a 4-star hotel -- by any means -- based on quality alone (i.e. you still have to endure a shower that floods the bathroom floor), I give it 4 stars based on the "value for the money" metric. Now that I have a sense of what else y300 fetches in this town (either subpar or far away), I stand by this rating.
