My young daughter and I stayed here recently for 4 nights. There's not too much I can add to the other reviews other than agree. It's a nice traditional hotel. The rooms are on the small side, luckily we ony had two small carry on suitcases, as I would expect you'd be pressed to figure out where to store two large cases. You can walk fairly easily around the hutong and there are some little cafes down the lane to the right as you leave the hotel. Having said that the meals at the hotel are fine and are taken in the bar (although you can ask them to deliver the meal to your room) where my daughter also discovered the Xbox 360 upstairs on the mezzanine level (sounded like a heard of elephants when you have a couple of kids playing up there but that's fine). Breakfast is served in a breakfast room near the main entrance and was fine, a good selection of eastern and western food plus fruit and pastries. The breakfast room is a little small but we never had a problem getting a table. The ladies on reception are very helpful and speak very good English. We arrived early and an early check in was no problem including breakfast. Also the hotel was very quick to respond to email queries. If I had to criticize something I'd say the wi-fi was a bit buggy in the room and the room heater didn't work fantasticly but they were only minor things. Over all an enjoyable stay at double happiness.
