This charming boutique hotel is nestled in the old Hutong (Alley) of the capital city, it combines the old chinese tradition and the new world's modern amenities. We loved the elegant ambience of the hotel, it's tranquility (as it's deep in a hutong, it's very quiet inspite of being in the heart of bustling capital city), comfortable bed, and friendliness of the staff. Rooms are larger than the ones we used to in other boutique hotels, decorations are tastful ( chinese style but without the tanky red and gold colors). The court yard has a small pond with a Guiyin status, it suppposed to bring good fengshui. Because of the homy setting and staff's friendliness, we feel like at home. Very different from our experience in big modern hotels. We are also pleasantly surprised that it offers free wireless access so we can get in touch with our family while on the road. The rooftop of the hotel offers a great view of the surrounding neighborhood, it was a bit chilly in late September, but we certainly enjoyed sipping tea on the rooftop.
As it's hidden in a Hutong, this hotel is not the easiest to find, but walking down the alley where normal Beijiingers live and work itself is an interesting experience (if you are adventurous enough, try get a hair cut at a nearby shop for just 10 Yuan).
Overall, this is a wonderful boutique hotel which offers a true Beijing experience, we would stay here again.
