We agree with the reviews below. We had come from a very glitzy and luxurious hotel in Shanghai. We loved the contrast. Staying in a hutong meant we were among real local people, rather than international business executives. The staff were excellent and spoke good English. We had intended to take advice from the Lonely Planet in booking a car to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu, but the agency they had recommended wanted to charge £200, including an "out of hours" fee. The girls at reception booked a car for us for £75, advised on the weather and which day we should do the excursion; and it was fine, no attempts at diversion to commission-paying shopping sites. The hotel was charming. The room was comfortable, if a little small. The breakfast was good. There was free wifi. Mrs PAH49.
