My wife and I stayed a total of 5 nights over an 8-day period. The Inn is conveniently located within a few hundred metres of the highly efficient Beijing subway system. Free wifi, inexpensive snacks (and beer) and good accommodation make a stay here incident- and stress-free. The most memorable part of our stay was the staff who, without exception, were helpful, friendly and focussed on making guests comfortable. They provided advice on sites to visit, routes to get to them, translation issues (including writing notes in Chinese characters to show taxi drivers, etc). We were also invited to participate in a dumpling-making session involving 4 guests and 6 staff members. Web site directions from the subway should say to turn right on exiting the subway and turn right at the first small street that leads to the lake; then circle the lake clockwise to the far end of the lake. Turn left at the small bridge and the Sleepy Inn is ahead on the left.
