We stayed for four nights in midOct 2011. Brilliant little hotel with quaint surroundings and obliging staff. Ample and good breakfasts, aircon and heating, fairly comfortable beds (for China - they were all hard), and interesting old furniture. The TV got both CNN and Macau TV so we could watch news and an English speaking film to relax at the end of the evening. The breakfast room was small (as others have said), but manageable with people coming and going. Quite a delight to be here. The surrounding area in the hutong gave us a feeling of seeing the true original Chinese way of life. The hotel is also an easy walk into the city centre - Waifuying Street and the upmarket shops. Other people at the hotel had also walked to many of the cultural sites (Tianemen Square etc) so really central.
There is a little local cafe in Lishi Street (next street to the right) which has lots of English writing all over its front walls, in orange and yellow. The meals there are very good and impossibly cheap.
