“Enjoyed being out of the way”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

The hotel itself was a bit hard to find, but once we had our bearings it turned out to be a great location. Cab drivers often let us off at the entrance to the street but that was OK. It wasn't a long walk. As mentioned in other posts, the hotel is an easy walk to the Ping An Li subway station. We enjoyed wandering the streets nearby. We didn't see any other westerners while we were there. The hotel was comfortable enough for our middle-aged selves. Our bathroom was huge. The staff's english wasn't as strong as advertised. We got by, however, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I read all of the reviews, and knew that this was a great place but hard to find. I had maps and directions, but I still got lost. I didn't realise how close Huguosi Street was to the Metro station, but that was an advantage once I knew. Getting from the airport via the Airport Express and the Metro was easy and much less expensive that taxis. I discovered that many entryways look a bit like alleys, but I eventually learned that the alleyways are level with the street. There _was_ a sign that said "Ron Yard" at the end of the alley running off from the street, BUT there was an even bigger sign for a new building that obscured it. And then the hotel is down a dead-end branch that runs off from the alleyway. But once there - WOW! What a great place. So be prepared to get lost, but along the way explore the Huguosi Street and its shops and restaurants. Enjoy!

this is no means a deluxe property.

it's located in a traditional hutong, almost maze-like, but not difficult to locate, and just a short 7-mins walk to Ping An Li subway station entrance/exit, and past several local eateries.

the charming-looking hotel itself is set around a quadrangle courtyard, rooms were quite difficult to locate and if you got a 2nd floor room, good luck finding what seems to be the only set of stairs, and cleverly camouflaged!

got a single room and it was adequate, with a local flavor, bathrooms were not the cleanest, but rather spacious. don't expect any views from the windows. all you will get is just that a dusty yard.

breakfast was almost terrible and pathetic. the hot dishes were OK, but if you're not accustomed to having rice and vegetables for breakfast, you can settle for the dry bread and croissants. the coffee however, from a coffee machine was a lifesaver. it did make a very decent cup of joe. breakfast is not always included, and the attendant will ask you for a meal voucher in mandarin.

don't expect english to be spoken much.

free wifi is available throughout the property so this was a plus.

Loved this hotel! It's beautifully kept, and we felt very special, being able to enjoy its two courtyards. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. I recommend it highly.

The hotel itself LOOKS great. But it has the feel of a computer generated architectural model designed by committee. It's NOT the real thing!

The level of service could be much better. Scrimp on the toilet tissue, they don't vaccum the carpets…which are filthy….the breakfast is over too early…at 9am…towels are not soft and seem very rough and cheap. The little things just add up to a less than 4 star experience in an architecturally nice (but "cold") environment.

The staff is helpful but lacking in any empathy and emotion. You know they don't really care!

This is NOT a 4 star or 5 star experience the way a Western traveller would want it.

That said, if you can get a "deal", it's not bad. Good location in a Chinese touristy area and close to the subway.

Room Tip: The upgraded rooms have huge bathtubs!
