We booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. We new it was on a small street, but were amazed that this nice hotel was built in a Hutong. In most cities people would never walk done this street, in Beijing, which is a very very safe city, its the norm. The Hutong is just a simple place for people to live, and some of the homes are as old a 200 years. The street is one way and taxi's might not know which side to go down. We have been dropped off several times at the main street and walked several hundred yards.
We were in room 920, the room is nice, large and clean.
So when you go out of the front of the hotel, take a left and walk to the main street. If you then turn left on the main street you will find several convenience stores including a 7/11.
ALSO - if you are in search of a western place to eat, there is a small place called Cheese. We had a great Chicken Caesar Salad, a selection of different Cheese Cakes. English was spoken by the manager. Just past this place is a very small, clean fried Chicken place.
It is 10 or 15 minutes from the Forbidden City and other landmarks.
