We had been to shanghai and xi'an and feeling rather 'cityed' out, too many people so was assuming Beijing would be exactly the same....well Sleepy inn is just that, a chilled haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just 10 minute walk from the metro you wouldn't believe you were in a city. Set beside a beautiful lake, within a Hutong location this is a real find. Across the way, the second lake has a great walk around, and about 1.5km from the hotel is a string of bars and restaurants if you want a bit if nightlife. Hostel world has spot on directions to find the place. Great coffee albeit expensive, very helpful staff. Didn't try the food but ate at the mall for great value just opposite the metro station. Had excellent Peking duck at Beiping Ju near the lake. Bike hire is available too. Great for couples / families.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sleepy Inn Downtown Lakeside is quietly located along the bank of beautiful Shishahai Lake, the most popular tourist area of downtown Beijing. Shishahai Lake and the surrounding "Hutong" areas still preserve the traditional features of the Beijing old town, with courtyards, flourishing trees, and old hutongs, all bustling with life of real Beijingers. ... more less
