“An Excellent Choice for Lodging”
Reviewed 5 July 2009

I really liked this hotel and I highly recommend the food. The staff was always helpful even if few of them knew any English. We spent two full weeks in the hotel during a difficult time as health officials were watching for symptoms of AH1N1. The staff was accomodating even if the had to take our temperatures every morning for a week. The hotel is quiet and if you are into vegetables the market is active nearby from 6am to 9am every morning. Situated in the Hutong this hotel is great for the adventure seeker trying to see the real Beijing. If you want to know China, stay here. Our teenagers loved the food here and the helpful staff. Cold beverages were always available.
On my next trip to Beijing I will be staying here. Initially finding the hotel can be difficult so get the name and address in Chinese for the taxi. I also liked the proximity to the Metro (DongSi) and the local grocery (WuMart).

Stayed June 2009, travelled with family

We stayed at Dong Si Fu Yuan Hotel for over a week and we were extremely satisfied with the experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful with any problem or question one might have. They sell a tourist map of Beijing which has names of popular destinations and sights written in both English letters and mandarin. But the staff would write it in Mandarin other things for us, like addresses or names of dishes which is a useful thing to have if you do not know any Chinese. The rooms were nice and clean, though just a bit smaller than we expected. There was always hot water in the room to make tea. The restaurant is small but is very convinient and cheap for breakfast. Their English menu is not extensive but the food is simple and decent. It is worth considering the tours that this hotel offers. The tours are relatively cheap and can be ordered at the last minute. But one of the less pleasant experiences was the information about the walking distance to the subway station. It is a good 30 minute walk from the hotel. The Wangfujing shopping mall and the center of the city is about 20 minutes of walking so sometimes it is easier just to take a 5min taxi ride. Overall, it was a great and very satisfying experience.

Deart Beijing Travellers!

I can really recommend this hotel for you to stay!
We spent a very good week there in April, and we decided to return there soon.
The staff is very kind there, the hotel is simple but really clean - what is very important for us.
The location is excellent (just at the end of Wangfujing).
We enjoyed ourselves very much there, and its prices are also very friendly.

We would like to say thank you for the nice room, and treating us this kind!

I found the Dong Si Fu Yuan hotel on the internet and prefering to book directly through the hotel, I called and was greeted by a friendly, English speaking man named Henry. Henry was most helpful and confirmed all details by email. Not knowing much at all about the location, the hotel etc, I was a little nervous, but was surprised on arrival at how clean and extremely cheap the hotel is. It was recently renovated, so was spotless. The front desk staff were always friendly & helpful and spoke a little English. The hotel was conveniently located near the Long Fu Da Shah Palace, so it was a very easy reference to give to taxi drivers, who speak little to no English. The hotel was about a 10 minute taxi ride to Tiananmen Square. I highly recommend it.
