We stayed at this hotel for three nights in December 2013 and had a pretty good experience. Our room was big with heated floors, which was great considering how cold Beijing gets during that time of year.
It is located within a hutong and is central to many tourist sites as well as close to the metro lines, making it rather convenient to get around.
The staff is multilingual and helped us organize a trip to the Great Wall with their driver and had also picked up tickets for our train to Shanghai for a nominal fee.
Breakfast was included in our rate and was served a la cart, was rather good and a nice start to the mornings.
We found this hotel to be a bit pricy but it was in fact very comfortable. We had an issue with our door not locking but eventually the staff fixed it, was just a little paranoid leaving the room unlocked when we went out.
