We checked in the hotel and were a little disappointed with the room as it look a little old and wear out. The hotel even look from it's from prewar and is very old. The road/alley towards the hotel is dark. The price per night is CNY180. It seems to get good feedback from the trip advisor but not very good for us.

First the breakfast seems always seems finishing anytime from 7.30-9.00am. Lack of food to eat. Mostly only vegetable and hard bun etc. When ask them to add some fried rice, they told no more left over. I asked them what can i eat as there is nothing anymore except porridge but there is no rice in the porridge. Only water! Even somtime there is no more boiled egg. Very very bad breakfast. Seriously a room without breakfast is CNY10 cheaper but they didnt let us to excluded it. I can eat a lot of thing with CNY10 per person just outside the wet market in the morning or shops near there.

Then, they never clean the cup in our room, never sweep floor etc. They only change the towel, tea etc.

The last day we stayed the water heater spoiled and could not manage to repair it. Offered us to change to another room but we have no more mood and quickly check out the hotel.

They even nearly walk into our room at 6.30am in one of a morning and luckily we put the door chain lock. Then they apologize as they thought nobody is in the room. Then while we thought to forget about it, they rang us up after the incident and again apologise. It seems to be a kind gesture but it's a turn off as we need to sleep! Hey it's only 6 am sumthing in the morning.

There is no kettle but they only thermo. They fill the thermo everyday in the morning and expect the water to be hot until night. What’s more, you pour the water out and there is water dripping on the other end of the thermo!

I think I can go on many things but I will put a full stop here. We stayed here 5 days as we have not much time to look for other hotel. The only thing I like is the location of this hotel. There seems to be a good hotel a few steps from Dong Si Fu Yuan but it was fully book until next month according to the hotel receptionist.

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).

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.
