The room is difference with other hotels .The decoration of the room is elegant and very clean,which really added to quality of my short-time trip in Beijing.
Thanks to the staff sophia,little.they are so helpful for us to recommend and book the activities.We really enjoyed the relaxing and sightseeing. It was very useful for us.
If i have next time I would absolutely stay here.

The service at Michael's House is second to none. The staff, especially Anna, went out of their way to ensure I had the best accommodation experience in the heart of local Beijing. Breakfast is served each morning with a multitude of options & the rooms are well-appointed & clean. We struggled to find a taxi cab who knew the location of Michael's House so it's a good idea to have the address written in Chinese so cab drivers can easily refer to it. I'd recommend this property for families, solo travelers, couples and friends.

My daughter and I stayed at Michaels in June this year after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. This was an authentic hotel which met all our expectations and more. Michaels is a small "boutique" establishment with exceptionally well appointed rooms that all open onto a covered courtyard. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable. We had a deluxe room for 2 nights, then moved to the Emperor Suite for another 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of both. The staff were welcoming and friendly and could not do enough for us, from organising day trips to a very lovely gesture of a birthday cake (this trip was to celebrate my 60th). We would recommend Michaels House to anyone visiting Beijing wishing to embrace the culture. Many thanks to Sophie, Jenny, Amy and Little, you were wonderful and made our stay so enjoyable.

Michaels House is very small but very nice hotel. The owners wife is very nice and so is the staff. They are always there to help in anyway they can. Breakfast is served daily and is very good. It is also very inexpensive to send your clothes to dry clean. I really liked this hotel overall.

Michaels house is a very comfortable boutique hotel with western standards located in a really local Chinese area. A perfect way to experience local life and still have western comforts. The best of both worlds. We were travelling with our adult teenagers and had a twin room and a double. Both rooms were really comfortable, with very comfortable beds, good quality white linen and western bathrooms.
There is no restaurant but Breakfast is included and served from 7.30am to 9am.
It's not in the centre of Beijing, therefore you do need to use the subway or taxi to see the sights or go to the night market and central restaurants. The subway is very close, very easy and only 2Yuan -20p. The taxis are easy to hail on the Main Street or the staff will call one for you. They are very reasonable during the day but much more expensive at night. ( still good value compared to other countries) 22 yuan during day about 70 to 120 yuan at night.

I would recommend Michaels house for those who like their creature comforts but don't like to stay in high rise central hotels and like to experience more of the local area.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good

We had two nights in Beijing on our way to another city. We had read reviews of Michael's House being well located and having excellent service, and we were not disappointed. The room was comfortable, breakfast was simple but very good (boiled eggs, fruit, cereal), and the staff set us up for a city tour, and for our airport transfers. Wifi was reliable and reasonably fast.

We had the best stay of our trip around China here! A bit hard to find but we rang the hotel and passed the phone onto the taxi guy who was guided in by the lovely "Little" (one of the staff). Greeted at the door like long lost friends, the staff Jenny, Amy, Sophia and Little were fabulous. All speak English and are so helpful and thoughtful, providing whatever assistance we needed, direction, places to eat, umbrellas in event of rain, cups of tea and coffee etc. Michael's house is a courtyard style hotel (hutong) down a small alley, hence nice and quiet at nights sleep. Courtyard area ideal place to unwind in the evening and swap travel tales with other guests. Metro station is a 5 minute walk away and 2Y ( about 50 cents) will get you anywhere you want to go, easy!

Room Tip: Rooms are small but have everything you need with the bonus of the communal courtyard area to sit ba...
