We stayed here for 2 nights. Friendly staff and clean place, although the hotel can improve a bit on their housekeeping effort - beds were not made by the hotel during our entire stay there. Toilet paper was only replenished on day 1 and we had to ask for those from the front desk on the other day. The in room phone was not working too but it was not fixed by the time we check out. There were funny rubbery smell in our bathroom but nothing intolerable.
We were actually booked on another hotel (Hostel 161) which is Super 8 Xisi's sister hotel. Booking for the hostel was made online via booking.com and we only learned that the hostel was closed for renovation 1 week prior to our departure to Beijing when we wrote in to confirm our stay. We were indeed very apprehensive at that point but Hostel 161 has assured us that they have transferred our booking to Super 8 Xisi with no extra cost incurred.
The hotel required RMB100 as deposit upon check in, which is refundable. Hair dryer and mosquito mat heater was available in the room.
We are happy as we have only paid for a 2-night-stay at a hostel but ended up staying in a courtyard hotel. We had to change our itinerary a bit but it was worth the stay.More
