The building is a fully restored, 300 year old hutong building with three pleasant courtyards, located in the centre of the Chen Dong district (old town). It is an excellent base to explore the hutong. The nearest metro station is a bit too far for being easy, therefore a taxi (cheap) is recommended for visits to e.g. the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square a.o.
The rooms are renovated, but basic. So, we had no wardrobe, too little storage space, and there was only one key available. The ancient typical Chinese bed was located in a corner of the room and it was only accessible from one side. Good, adjustable heating and air conditioning, reasonable bathroom with shower.
Housekeeping was very helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day. It was completely free to determine when the room should be groomed.
Enjoyable breakfast area in ancient Chinese hutong style. Good breakfast with a strong focus on Western tourists: croissants, pastries, coffee, tea, yogurt, fresh fruit etc... Regularly supplemented. By the end of the breakfast service each guest was asked if he/she needed some more food or drinks.
Maybe a little expensive for the accommodation offered, but the atmosphere and its location in the center of a real hutong compensate that largely.
Very friendly and helpful staff with adequate knowledge of English, front desk 24/7.
Very recommendable for those who want to stay a few days in a traditional character house.
