“Great Experience!! Just Do It!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

This hotel was a great find. We were pleased with the decor and simplicity upon entering. It was a very relaxing place to come back to after a full day of touring all of the many attractions of Beijing. The air condition was cold and the bathtub was deep which was a plus if you're visiting during summer months. The hotel staff, Bobby and the girls (Gracie & Shelley) were great and waited on you hand and foot. They will set up tours and shows for every day of your visit. Our boys enjoyed playing ping pong in the courtyard, while everyone else shared stories of their days adventures over a cup of tea or a bottle of Chinese beer. The location was also good. It was only a 15 minute walk to the subway station, (which is the recommended means of travel in Beijing), due to the quickness, cleanliness, and cost. Taxis are very cheap as well, if you don't mind a little crazy driving and don't get car sick. As for food, if you're adventurous you could easily grab food (such as Chinese dumplings) from the many food vendors on the sidewalk, or choose one of many restaurants where you will get your fill for a very reasonable price. My family of four could eat for less than $20 dollars. If you like coffee and pastries, there were a couple of nice spots about 10-15 minute walk on your way to the subway to get your day started, and they stayed open late until midnight. And if shopping is your thing, there were some small shops nearby with very reasonable prices on shoes, clothes and souvenirs. If department stores are more your style, they have those as well. And if you are really adventurous, at night the nearby allies come alive with the locals eating, drinking, and shopping the way they know how. It was all a great experience for our entire family. If I ever go back to Beijing, I would stay here again. The Templeside Deluxe Hutong House Hotel is a MUST!!

We stayed at this hotel for combination business and family holiday. With ages 17-87, we had a variety of needs and expectations. We wanted a real taste of China and that's what we got in contrast to bland international hotels. Located near local restaurants and markets, we felt like we were in real Beijing. Bobby, Sing and the team were great - from airport pickup, arranging tour to Great Wall and local knowledge. The dumpling and 'family meal' night was homespun hospitality and a chance to get to know the very international travellers that also had found this gem. We had the two level family room for Dad, Mom and daughter. Whilst Grandpa enjoyed his twin room with lavishly decorated en suite.
On the slight down side, it is a fair walk from the nearest subway station. Some taxis outside of major tourist sites refused to take us to the hotel. There is no restaurant but you can order take-away to be delivered.
Overall, staying at Templeside greatly enhanced our trip to Beijing and is held in fond memory.

This accomodation is in the middle of an old Chinese hutong, in an old courtyard. The location is very authentic. but don't be afraid, the guest house is very clean, and has everything you need. We stayed in the Deluxe hutong House, and it has been a great experience. Two metrolines (1 and 2) are very close, there are foodstores, restaurants, bank for money change, teeshops in the neighbourhood.
The hotel stuff is great, they can speak english, they were always very helpfull, no matter what we asked. They searched for all the opening hours, they wrote down in Chinese everything we asked for, so we could show it for example in the teashop.
The room is big enough, the bed is comfortble. There is aircon and wifi in the room. The house has a big terrace. It is very good to sit there in the evening with tea or beer.
I recommend this place to everyone,I am happy to have chosen this accomodation.

we stayed a week at this guesthouse and it was fabulous. it wasn't any 5 star premises and it wasn't located in a 'bling bling' area, but it had charms and history, staff was attentive yet casual, friendly and helpful. they all spoke english, that was a plus!
the building and our room had characters located in one of the ancient hotong, lane ways' in Beijing. very central in everything, all the major tourist spot, palace, tinnanmum square, shopping beijing zoo were all a bus ride away! yes! we uesd the local bus, what a fun and sooooo cheap! the guest house had a book giving us the directions, very helpful info.they organised the greatwall tour for us just with one day notice, airport transfer all done for us too. we will definitely stay there again.

This Hutong is a great place to stay in Beijing. The rooms are set around a traditional charming courtyard and although it is not right in the centre next to the main attractions it is easy to get to and from, the subway station is nearby and the subways run all over beijing. The staff were very helpful, the girls spoke great English and were very helpful and efficient in organising things for us to do. Bobby is also very friendly and makes sure that you have an enjoyable stay. The rooms and bathrooms are very well kept and the courtyard seating area is a great space to relax in. The food was really good too.

Highly recommend for several reason. We had a triple room which was perfect for the 3 of us. Simple clean with ensuite bath. The Courtyard became a great place to socialize with the other guests as well as having a distintictive Chinese flavor. The Hutong was an interesting place to stay, like a village inside a city. The staff for the most part had extremely limited English but were always kind and accomodating. And Bobby who we corresponded with was excellent and even bought our overnight train tickets on to Xi'an. Over all a great experince and made nicer for the fact the Hotel and area it was located in gave you a very Chinese experince.
