I stayed for 7 nights in July 2014 at this wonderful Hotel located in a Hutong (old town). Don't be put off by the very traditional road leading to the Hotel. Everything is perfect. This house is an old courtyard house that has been nicely refurbished. You want to experience ancient/traditional China? This is the place. Do not fear for your comfort: everything is furnished. Air conditioning, hair dryer, a whole lot of complimentary stuff, WiFi is working very well, well sized flat screen TV, tea or coffee maker, lots of towels in different sizes, a working shower.
The breakfast buffet offers everything, from continental, english to chinese breakfast. Choice is huge. Quality is great.
The staff really go out of their way to offer you a pleasant stay. The only complaint (Wifi didn't work one evening, but in the end I think the whole internet was having a problem) I had over the whole week was treated immediately. And I mean, didn't even have time to dress ;-)
They offered advice and made me feel at home from the start.
Unfortunately I only found out about the nice bar and the really good food they offer at the end of my stay. Highly recommended: drink a beer at the bar, talk to the very nice barmaid who has plenty of knowledge about China and do eat at the Hotel, that dinner was one of the best I had during my stay in Beijing.
All in all: just do it!
