After staying at this hotel for 3 months (May-August), we had both good and bad experiences with the Home Inn.
The Room Itself:
*The bed was large, but firm. Typical for China. It was comfortable after we were used to it. The bedding was fluffy and soft.
*The room was large and had a nice desk area with desktop computer overlooking the window with a view facing the Hutong below and the city in the distance. There was enough floor space to do some basic exercises (jump rope, push ups, etc) since we were there for so long and we didn't want to exercise in the pollution.
*The bathroom was a decent size with a large shower. The shower floor was VERY slippery.
*The housekeeping staff couldn't understand why we didn't want our room cleaned everyday, even though we were using the room as an apartment instead of a temporary living space. It took some heated arguing by my husband in Chinese for them to finally cut back to cleaning our room once a week.
*The front desk was accommodating and loaned us umbrellas on many occasions. They were terrible, however, about quieting other rooms down. We had multiple occasions when small children visiting the hotel for the weekend were running through the hall screaming their heads off. We called the front desk, they assured us that they would ask them to be quiet, but nothing ever changed.
*The hotel staff itself had some sort of agreement with the prostitute services in the city since we had a stack of cards shoved under our door each night and a phone call at least a few days a week. If my husband answered, they asked if he wanted "services," but if I answered, they hung up. This was very annoying and I wish that the hotel would do something about it.
*Some sort of construction was going on in the hotel while we were there and the dust was terrible. I was sick for weeks while it was going on.
*We loved the location in an old hutong because we met many locals! The hotel is also conveniently located between the Beixinqiao and Zhangzizhonglu stations on line 5. It's very close to Guijie Street, Yonghegong Lama Temple, Forbidden City, and many great restaurants and shops.
