Located deep within the hutong near the lakes, we spent two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Good points: we live here but they do hotel/airport transfers, perfectly located to explore the lakes and central Beijing, English speaking staff(!), western or Chinese Breakfast. Short walk to two Metro stations and the bus routes. Rooms have A/C bath, safe, mini bar, kettle, TV, wireless and a very comfortable bed. Lovely furniture and decoration and scrupulously clean. The Shadow show is just marvelous if too short. Down sides, tricky to find if you don't know the area well, no refrigerator in the rooms, no bar though you can buy wine at reception (spirits and beer in the mini bar but EXPENSIVE), the red wine is excellent, and no restaurant, there are innumerable excellent restaurants around the lakes, and they will send out for food for you, the pizza from Hutong pizza is superb, ask for the gourmet. Overall I'd give it a very high recommendation and we will be going there again, if only to enjoy the nightingale floors.
