Elite Hutong is a traditional courtyard residence, very well located, walk distance to the Theater, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City and also about 5mins walk to the Hepingmen Metro station.
The neighborhood is quite nice (Hutong’s) and interesting but we felt safe.
It is an authentic Hutong atmosphere. We were there went it got cold (frost, rain and snow) it was a little uncomfortable to be in a small room (barely no space for suitcase and be careful to not break any of the pots!), heating worked well (radiator and hot aircon), great veranda and inner court, but in the room there was a big odor of sewerage in the bathroom (smell get into the room). Nice new towels each day, comfortable bed, just the noise isolation is not sound proof as some lousy guests left early in the morning and waking the whole Hutong up.
For breakfast you can choose for Asian or western, both are nice, many small cups of different food. It is not a 4* hotel (still a bit pricy) but great atmosphere and nice staff.
