I visited Beijing over 10 times in last 2 years for short business trips and tried over 30 different kinds of hotels before: newly built international business hotels, older style hotels, hotels with 100% local customers, cheaper ones, international chain hotels...This time, I had invited a customer for 2 days in Beijing and was looking for an authentic Beijing experience: this was a perfect choice. 1. it is located in the middle of a hutong - old beijing small houses, and its architecture well integrated with the surroundings 2. The decoration, with the theme of Shadow Art and is simply perfect. 3.It is walking distance from restaurants and bars.
However, the place is not convenient for taxis, the breakfast is simple (not buffet type), the staff is not experienced but very friendly.
Looking for authentic experience: ask for a room with a window on the patio, go for dinner in the nearby restaurants on the lakes, when you are in a taxi, give a call to the hotel to guide the driver and be patient...
