“Quiet and cosy guest house”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Very nice hotel, more a guest house actually. Rooms are situatie around a courtyard, which today is furnished with plants and sofas. The staff is very nice and helpfull. The hotel is located less then 15 minutes from a subway station. The huton, old attractive streets, a tourist attraction now a days, are 3 stations away.
So, for a very reasonable price, I can sincerely recommend you this warm hotel!

Michael’s House is a clean, comfortable and stylish hotel. The rooms surround a central courtyard which is decorated in a traditional Chinese style. The staff were very helpful. They even stayed awake until 4 am to allow us to check in after a long flight.

The hotel is located approximately 10 minutes walk from a metro station on line 2. Line 2 is the circle line. Accordingly, it connects with many other lines. This makes travelling to most of the touristy destinations very easy.

Breakfast is included in the room price. It is a buffet style breakfast, including bacon and eggs as well as continental options.

We enjoyed our stay at Michael’s House and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Beijing who is not part of tour.

If you are looking for a smaller, cosy Hotel in Beijing - this is the place to stay. Extremly good value for money! It has a few rooms built around an indoor garden, which serves as breakfast room and also has some sofas to relax. Very cosy and I loved the style. The room we stayed in was quite small and did not have a window facing outside (it was facing the indoor garden) therefore the room was a bit dark and smelled a bit strange. However with a few min of the AC running the smell was gone. The room also had a nice interior and the beds were very comfy. The breakfast was really delicious, and you can even have it earlier or later if you ask. The best thing about this place is the staff: good english and extremely helpful and friendly!
This hotel is located slightly north of the ring, a good area if you want to escape the crowds. However it is still very close to metro line 2 and you quickly reach all the main sights in Beijing.

Beijing is huge,and the hotel location is important.This hotel is near the central metro line -the line 2 ,and the station named JiShuitan just in 10 mins walk away,and there are so many resturants by that street. We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights,and we all are so crazy about the hotel's Chinese style. Also there have free wifi in the room,full bathroom,comfortable bed and clean condition, I'm sure I'll back again.

The staff at Michael's House was wonderful! They helped us find affordable restaurants nearby and gave good advice about sites to see. We also visited the Great Wall with a tour company they recommended -- great trip! The beds were also nice and soft -- not usual in China!

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with a bathroom -- some of the rooms need to use the bathroom across the court...

Nice courtyard house styled hotel with cosy hotel rooms and nice hotel staffs. Felt really welcomed and comfortable the moment i stepped in. Had a fantastic stay there. Nice restaurants less than 10 minutes walk away serving delicious meals reasonably priced. Was there with my family and everyone was happy with it :)

We stayed @ Michael's for 5 nights and had a pleasant experience. The hotel is not extremely close to any attractions but the subway is a 5-10 minute walk, so expect about 30 min - 1 hr travel time for most places. Beijing subway is not super efficient so you usually have to change lines 1 or 2 times. Michael's hotel grounds were very nice and rooms were clean and modern. The staff was very kind and helped us when needed. The breakfast isn't anything special but a nice perk if you are in a rush to go sight seeing. The hotel is located down an alleyway and isn't easily identifiable to a newcomer, so make sure you know what it looks like on the outside before you arrive. Only negative was that there was construction going on, so a few times we were awakened abruptly by the sound of drilling or hammering on the roof.

On an unrelated note, make sure you read up on typical service scams in Beijing, as we got scammed by a taxi driver and another lady attempted to as well over by the night food market.
