I checked into this hotel last minute when the hotel I originally booked, next door to Hanting Express, had my booking screwed up. Am glad the hotel had rooms available for my walk-in booking. Friendly and helpful staff who speaks little (if not almost no) English.
Location - When you arrive at South Luo-Gu-Xiang 南锣鼓巷, look out for Ju-er Alley 菊兒胡同. The hotel is just 3 mins walk into Ju-er Alley. Great location to stay with loads of shopping and food at South Luo-Gu-Xiang. There is a laundry shop just across the entrance of the hotel where you can send laundry to.
Rooms - As there were 3 of us and being a walk-in booking, we took a Family Suite at RMB 469 for the first night but had to change to 2 King-bed rooms at RMB 299/room/night for the second night, since the Family Suite has been taken for the second night.
Family Suite - Very spacious room. 2 toilets in the room with 2 King-sized beds and a decent balcony. Can accommodate up to 4 adults or families with 2 adults + 2 to 3 children. Absolutely value-for-money. Facilities were new & clean, comfortable & spacious beds, 3 bottles of water per room, clean toilets with clean towels. TV programs all Chinese.
King-Bed room - Good for up to 2 adults, spacious. The toilet facility is less ideal than the Family Suite. The shower is in a separate 'area' from the toilet bowl while sharing a common door. The sink is in an open area outside the shower room and toilet bowl room. Hence, it is not very conducive if you are sharing room with another person. CRT TV monitor, toilets are not as new as the Family Suites but clean as well, 2 bottles of water, clean sheets & towels.
Can't comment on Breakfast since I did not take it. RMB 15 per person per day.
Housekeeping - Clean, neat, good. Housekeeping ladies were friendly.
No swimming pool in the hotel. Nearest MTR station is 'An-Ding-Men'.
My first stay with a Hanting property in China. Definitely a good experience and will definitely check-out other Hanting properties in future when planning a stay in China.
