My husband & I decided to book our 3 nights in Beijing at this hotel based on the glowing recommendations below. Whilst I would agree with the comments on the exceptional level of service, good location and adequate accommodation (small clean room & bedding, clean bathroom with hot & cold shower, aircon & free wifi), we were highly disappointed after not being able to sleep a wink on our first night from all the noise and loud chatter coming from the enclosed courtyard. Each room faces onto the small courtyard so there are no ‘quiet’ rooms. At 380 RMB per night we also questioned whether this was really very good value-for-money and therefore checked out after the first night after finding something much better & actually cheaper! So my final comment on this hotel would be, if you’re able to sleep through lots of noise or happy to use earplugs, then this place will be adequate.
