this hotel has changed its name to 'Traditional' as another commentator stated.
This hotel is attractively decorated and the check in went smoothly and efficiently. The room was decorated in traditional style furniture. It was a bit small but okay for just a parent and daughter.
The air conditioner worked well. There were no English tv channels, despite the high number of foreign guests. Internet was free, but was amazingly slow, even for China. Connections were constantly being dropped, and it took forever to load pages from international sites especially.
Breakfast was weak; I'm glad we only took it once. Great dining room however.
The hotel is in a great location in a hutong. Many small shops and restaurants in the area. Plenty of bars too. We walked to a nearby area around a lake where there were dozens of bars with live musicians. Great place to spend your evening.
I think there are better places in the same area, so I doubt I would stay at this hotel again.
