This perfectly located small courtyard guesthouse was a great find. The rooms are small and minimal but nicely decorated. Our bed was very comfortable; the bathroom was small but efficient. This wonderful little lodge is located within a couple of steps of the Beixinqiao subway and within a 45 minute walk of most of the major Beijing attractions.
There is a nice courtyard to sit in and you will enjoy the two little dogs playing around. We gave them both names "Pitter" and "Patter" and enjoyed their company while relaxing with a beer purchased from one of the stores nearby after a long day of visiting some of the attractions in the area. If you prefer to sit inside there is a wonderful "common room" to relax in. You'll find a book or two to enjoy that were left by other guests. Breakfast is pretty basic but made to order with a smile. We enjoyed it very much and did not find it necessary to go outside for breakfast as some of the other reviewers did.
The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. "Michelle", the assistant manager went out of her way to help us. We stayed here a couple of days before joining a 20 day tour of China. When it was time to move to our tour hotel which was a 45 minute cab ride away, "Michelle", the assistant manager, walked to the Dongsi Street with us to make sure we would find a taxi that would take us that far away.
On this 6 week trip to Thailand, China and Hong Kong we stayed in 15 different hotels. 4 Banqiao was definitely not the most luxurious or well appointed hotel but it is only one of two hotels we would definitely return to because of its location, value for money, great staff and service. So it is not a Five-Star hotel because of the luxury offered, it is a true five star hotel because of the staff, service and great location.
