This is a b&b, not an hotel. Be aware.
The ladies who are taking care of the place are very kind (mom and daughter, mom does not speak english, daughter does).
But on our first morning, it was very difficult to "order" coffee, since the mom was by herself. I was hoping to have some help to plan my first day in Beijing, but I wasn't able to communicate.
The "hotel transportation" is very expensive for the service offered: very old and dirty car, full of stuff in the trunk so we could not put half of our luggages, driver does not speak english.
Walls are made of paper, you can ear your neighbours as soon as they move in their room.
And mattress is so hard!
But if you are looking for a "modern and clean" hutong experience, it is the right place to be.
We stayed there for 6 nights. We were "shocked" at our arrival, but left the place happy of our experience. As I said, the ladies were SO kind, trying to do always their best. We had the feeling of being part of their family. Moreover, I think it was the cleanest hotel I ever experience in my life (but change the towels every 2 days).
This is a place for adventurous high end travellers.
I would recommend to the management of this place to make a leaflet about the good spots of the city (restaurants, spa, shopping, things and places to see, etc), with a map, Chinese translation of popular places for taxi driver.
Moreover, I believe that the price was quite high (149USD per night) for what they offer. But in general, I believe Beijing is quite an expensive city (in Shanghai, you sleep better and you eat better for cheaper).
