If you are looking for western style deluxe 4-5 star hotels, then don't book here.This hotel is located in a hutong, a dark street that is hardly large enough for a mid sized car and it is definitely not a deluxe hotel. It's more like a chinese family guest house that offers more ammenities than expected. The location is good and very close to the line 5 Dongsi metro station. We stayed here in February and it was very cold, so, it was very tough to have to wander in the open air freezing halls every time we had to commute between our room and other parts of the hotel. The rooms were very well heated, though. The chinese style deluxe double room we had (room 138) was quite tiny, but had everything we needed and a little more. There was a complimentary fruit basket with an apple, a mandarin and a pear on the first day, however, it wasn't refreshed after that. They also offer complimentary coffe and tea. The bathroom came with super clean towels, hair dryer, and ammenities such as, laundry detergent, tooth brushes, combs, soaps, razor and bath caps. The soap, shampoo and conditioner were contained in a dispenser in the shower. The shower was super good with plenty of strong and hot water. The bed was a little on the hard side, but still very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was not too big, but it offered chinese and western food that was very good. In the evenings they have a lady playing chinese melodies on the harp and also hold tea ceremonies for their guests. It's a fun experience and a challenge to traditional hotels.
