“Central but sooo nice and realxing Place (oasis)”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Small Hotel (8 rooms) with "character" in City Center. It's in the Center of Bejing but very quit. All Stuff very helpfull and seek. Only weakness good be the bathroom for the future! When you take a shower water flows in all chink and also on the floor. Means it smells a little bit clammy and moldy. That's really the only weakness at this nice place!

This was really a wonderfull surprise: very kind staff, very quite hotel, beautiful style and located in a hutong where you can feel the life of Beijing.
It is a two floor hotel, the rooms are confortable, you can open the windows and sit in the courtyard.
It is a place where you feel at home.

We stayed in a standard double for four nights on our recent trip to Beijing. The room was small but very comfortable and the environment inside the hotel was very peaceful and relaxing. Breakfasts were wonderful, served in a lovely little dining room with friendly cats. The walls of the rooms are very thin but we weren't disturbed by any noise as most other guests were considerate and quiet. The hotel staff were very helpful and always on hand to help. The area is very central although the best restaurants (around Sanlitun and the Bell & Drum Tower area) are a 10/15 minute taxi drive away. Overall, highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you're not on a budget, get a bigger room because the standard rooms are very small

Small but lovely surprise. Staff were incredibly helpful and always smiling. Located just a short distance from the Forbidden City and easy to get around. We will definately stay at this hotel next time we are in Beijing.

A very homely little place, lovingly designed with a zen-like feel, tucked in a Hutong between two subway stations in central Beijing, it is a quiet sanctuary within the noisy city. Run by a small group of friendly staff, breakfast is individually prepared according to your needs in the morning. While its facilities are simple, the hotel grounds are quiet and its beds cozy. The TVs in the rooms are well-stocked with loads of entertainment! The staff were very kind to let me tinker with their zither in the lounge area, and were sweet enough to book our cabs for our return trip to the airport during the wee hours. If you happen to stay at the Hulu, don't foreget to try the mutton chuanr sold at the entrance of the Hutong - absolutely delicious!

Room Tip: Beds right near the window get a little cold at night in winter.

We had 3 rooms for several nights at this little hotel. It is not a 5 star hotel, and I agree that the rooms were not cleaned every day. Also the really lovely staff dont start till 8 o'clock, and one morning when we needed an early start was a little tense as there was no one around until 8:05.

However it is a stylish and very comfortable small hotel in one of the Hutongs within walking distance to the Forbidden City and several other sites within Beijing.

The staff were really lovely and couldnt have been more helpful, and helped arrange our tour to the Great Wall ( The Wall visit is easy at Mutianyu. There is a cable car up to Turret 14 and you can then walk ( mainly down hill ) the 3/4 mile to turret 6 and go back down the mountain on the toboggan. A spectacular and fun afternoon. ).

The breakfast and all beverages are free and delicious, and the rooms were cosy and charming We will be back

A small and wonderful hotel. great location, friendly and thoughtful staff. my friend and I enjoyed staying at the traditional courtyard there, playing with lovely kitties. they offer simple but tasty Chinese breakfast in early morning, which is so sweet. If it will be possible for my friends to come to Beijing, I will recommend Hulu Hotel to them. A little problem is the walls are not soundproof, sometimes I can hear the noise from the neighbor .
