My wife and I along with another couple stayed hered for 4 nights in May. This was our 2nd stay at Lusongyuan Hotel and quite content with location. Located down a quiet hutong alley; it is a 5 minute walk to a main thoroughfare where there are lots of activities, shopping and restaurants within other hutong lanes. Rooms are decorated in traditional furnishings and beds are fairly comfortable. We did note the property overall is a bit run down i.e. there was skimpy tolietries, threadbare towels and worn carpeting, but for the price and ambience of the traditional architecture we would return. Our package came with breakfast which was quite good with made to order items, breads, fruit and coffee. There is also wifi available. There is a small bar, Mao Mao Chung, located out the front door and a 2 minute walk to the right that serves interesting drknks and pizzas; well worth a visit or two.

Room Tip: Choose a room located at the back end of the property to stay away from hutong lane noise.

I wanted an authentic feel in my accommodation to accentuate my Beijing experience. LuSong Yuan meets that expectation but falls short of the quality I normally expect. The hotel rooms are in need of updating. Bath linens are subpar. Wifi in rooms seems to turn off after business hours, exactly when a weary tourist might want to check in back home via email. The restaurant breakfast is pathetic and too expensive. All those things noted, I have not seen another hotel nearby that would make me think they'd do better. The location is ideally close to good shopping, both artsy and souvenirs. Great bars, average restaurants (although they don't lack in atmosphere).

If you do stay here, there is a restaurant tucked away next door, 18 Tea House, great courtyard dining, wonderful selection of tea, and superb italian and japanese food selection. Also, for breakfast try the cafe attached to the Peking Backpackers Hostel down the main alley for breakfast.

Just finished the book "the last days of old beijing" and this is exactly what i expected!

its a nice central location and great feel and experience. its not immaculate or perfect service but above average, but that's not why i picked this place! great overall experience and definitely a pretty good value with conversion rates.

If you want your hotel in Beijing to give you a glimpse of the past (as we did) but are willing to accept that with this you lose an element of chain hotel comfort then this place is for you.

We loved the old-worldy feeling of sitting out in the red lantern lit courtyard in the brisk early evening air with the moon above and listening to old guys playing chinese instruments. Made us get all poetic!
The trade-off's - as others have said, the opium style beds are hard. Very. However the hotel did provide a second duvet which we deployed as a second bed sheet that helped no end. The other issue is if you're tall (over 6ft / 185cm) you wont be able to lie down completely straight but again this is not difficult to accept. The room and bathroom were certainly not spacious. The breakfast is very limited in range but what they did have tasted fine - it doesn't market itself as a 4/5 star chain hotel so don't expect it. All in all these minor downsides shouldn't deter those with an imagination looking for old-school chinese charm from coming here.

The Hutong area is not scary though it's probably best to arrive during the day as it looks a little more intimidating at night. The side street the hotel is on isn't brilliantly lit, the whole hutong is touristy and safe. In fact it has almost completely left behind it's traditional hutong feeling, save for lay-out, in favour of an almost 'too cool' vibe with some cool little bars and shops. In fact the Aussie guy who owns and runs 12sqm (near the main entrance to the hutong) is a friendly chap who speaks chinese and used to be a tour guide manager. He was very happy to give us a few tips that proved extremely helpful.

If you buy any snacks from the little shop opposite, at least check you buy something that only went out of date in the last 6 months.

As a base to walk to the forbidden city and jinshan park, depending on your walking style it'll take you 20 mins (pacy walk) up to 40 mins for a gentle amble.

My wife, our 8 months son and I stayed a week at this charming hutong hotel. The location is excellent, being very close to one of the most funky hutong streets in Beijing. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the reception staff speaks good english. The rooms are cosy and very different from modern style hotels. The large courtyard with statues and live birds is super. During our stay there was live traditional music every evening, which was very cool.
Our room was very small and since we also had a baby bed (for free) we had nearly no floor space. As in other hutong hotels the bed is super hard, but that was ok.
Generally, we had a great stay at this hotel, but of course there are minor details that could be improved. The room would benefit from a small renovation and a new carpet. The breakfast could be more interesting and the coffee better - but this is really minor details.
