“Why stay anywhere else?”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in September, 2010, and then another night after a week in Tibet. It did not take long to think of Michael's House as home. The staff is friendly and helpful, the environment is serene, and the buffet breakfast a mixture of Chinese and Western (coffee! AND tea). The Jishuitan subway stop is about a 6 minute walk, and the night market (street food) that is around the corner is fascinating to watch or to snack. Loved it.

I can say how great this little place is, you just have to experience it for yourself. While in China I also stayed in other hotels and they could not compare to Michael's House. It's friendly, clean, quite, and very quaint. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff was awesome, very friendly and there to answer any questions.The area the hotel is located in is breathing with life, especially at night.

This place is awesome, I would definitely stay here again.

We found Michael's House ultra clean and super comfortable. The location is away from the main tourist areas, and situated in a local area, givng you a real taste of chinese life.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from phone calls to our embassy, refunds on train tickets and calls to Tibet. They just wanted to help us in any way possible. Highly recommended and would go there again.

I stayed here whilst travelling and was so happy I chose this hotel. The setting was amazing, the courtyard something else and it was a sea of calmness after days spent trekking round the madness of Beijing. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and gave us some great tips about Beijing in general. The room was small but that added to the homely feel of the place. The only downside was the breakfast was pretty dull basic western food, and it would have been nicer to be slightly closer to central Beijing, but these are only tiny downsides on what is a wonderful hotel to stay at. I will definitely stay here again.

This is a truly unique and charming hotel in the heart of the city! One immediately feels connected to the trendy neighborhood in which this hotel sits. The staff was incredibly patient and kind with all of the questions I posed. The hotel courtyard is a relaxing and aesthetically pleasing place to hang out, and the rooms and very tastefully decorated. I felt really comfortable and 'at home' in Micheal's House and would highly recommend it to travellers of all sorts; beginners and professionals. Thanks Michael! :-)

We stayed for three nights at Michael's house. It's a charming little courtyard hotel in a quiet street. The bedrooms are accessed from the courtyard, which has been roofed over and is used as a communal area - lounge, reception, breakfast. The furnishings are tasteful and individual. Each room is different. We stayed in standard rooms, which are smallish but comfortable and fine for a short stay. Larger rooms are available.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful, and mostly spoke good English.

The location is fine. Beijing is a big place but taxis are convenient and cheap, and the hotel has taxi cards with key addresses in Chinese.
