Let's just say there was a significantly sized hole on the bottom of my room door that is rotting away. The hotel is old and does not look like it's well-maintained compared to other courtyards. Maybe the rustic and unkempt courtyard is what others here thought was great, charming and the real China.
The room was big though but again looks like it needs some refurbishing. The Chinese design is tacky (too much Chinese decor for my taste) bordering sleezy thanks to the lamp with red light. The thin walls and probably hole in my door also did not filter the talking outside the room late at night. The bathroom, however, looks like it was renovated compared to the bedroom.
Only plus here is the staff service. Very very helpful and they also have a free shuttle to serve nearby areas, if the van is available, as the hotel is deep in the hutong.
For the price you pay, you can get better accommodations elsewhere. It's the abysmal breakfast buffet and free shuttle that I think you really are paying for here.
