The hotel itself is an authentic Chinese courtyard hotel, down a side street and laid out around a beautiful courtyard, which has the richness of detail of traditional Chinese architecture. It is very handy to a nearby subway station, the hutong area and the buzzy lake front area where it meets the hutongs. It is not as slickly run as a large standard modern hotel, there is no wireless, the rooms are reasonably basic and slightly rough around the edges and the staff aren't all smiles all the time, but I would much rather stay here and get a taste of the real China than in a standard sanitized hotel and cost wise it was very good value. I found the beds hardish and the pillows filled with something non standard, but they we're well comfortable.enough. I would definitely go back.

Stayed: April 2012

We had stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. They rooms were dark and dreary. They beds were very very hard and the pillows felt like they had sand in them. The cleanliness was not up to par. We chose to walk around wtih flip flops to keep our feet clean.

The shower made the water get everywhere on the bathroom floor. The hot water barely lasted through one shower so one person was forced to take an ice shower.

The front desk was not much help. They barely spoke english. We had to arrange our own private cars, which was very very difficult. ALSO, NO WIFI.

The hotel itself is in a hutong neighborhood. The taxis have a hard time finding this hotel. It is not near any main attractions except the Bell tower and Drum tower. Nightlife is not anywhere near.

The subway is a 2 minute walk, but not helpful with giving tourist directions. As they say, "no ask!"

You could stay in a high rise fancy hotel and be anywhere in the world.... This hotel makes you realise you're right in the heart of Beijing. It was clean and cheap. We stayed in the main block, not a courtyard room and it was reasonable. Small room, typical hard bed, air con, heating, 2 bottles free water and Chinese tea. The decor was lovely, and fittingly old. We were there in the winter/low season so it was empty. Didn't see another foreigner in the 5 days we were there! Staff were friendly but not overly helpful. We thought we could pick up brochures and book tours and drivers here, but that wasnt the case. We ended up booking our Great Wall trip at the YHA just down the road. Oh there's a McDonalds just 2 mins away too which was good for those moments just wanted a burger!
The hotel is literally a stones throw from the subway station, walking distance from Bell and Drum towers, Beihai Park and it's all amongst narrow hutongs. If you're walkers like us, Jingshan park was a good stop on the morning on your way to the Forbidden city. We didn't have the food at hotel as we'd read previous messages not to, but if you're willing to explore there are tonnes of places around to eat.
Was about 80RMB in a taxi from the airport - very cheap and easy.. Just remember to have the name of hotel written in Chinese for the driver. When sight seeing the subway is excellent, sooooo cheap, but so over crowded... Wouldn't recommend for little ones as sometimes the walk between transferring lines was quite long.
If you're not too fussy and need a convenient place to lay your head... This is the one!

the hotel lobby is pretty with traditional chiese decoration. We have a standard room and it is small and a bit old. The worst thing is after my friend finished bath. There is still no hot water and the staff said I have to wait more 15 mins. But 30 mins past away there is still no hot water for bathing so the staff takes me to the other room to have it. it's a bit disappoint as theres no wifi in room. The hotel just fews steps away from the Guloudajie train station.

I like this hotel. The place is very authentic and not like all of the other cookie cutter hotels. The price is very reasonable. We were fortunate to get bumped to a suite which was very nice for the first night. The standard building rooms are smaller and have a small bathroom, but are overall comfortable. The shower gets hot water very fast.The paid breakfast buffet was a good value. The subway was just steps away and there was a close by commercial district with many nice shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: The Suites are very nice. We were upgraded to a suite for the first night. If you can afford it, go this route.
