The stuff was very friendly, and English was okay (which is a big thing in China). Location was very good, 5 mins walk from the MRT. Nothing special about the hotel, but nothing intolerable as well. Bathroom was spacious and clean, comfortable bed, good air condition. Only major thing is the wifi, which was pretty bad. The hotel lobby was... More

Didn't stay at the hotel, but immensely enjoyed the espresso at the small cafe within the building. Nothing extraordinary, mind you, but plain old good espresso that is neither too bitter nor too sour. Great interior design as well, with a very friendly and helpful staff.

The staff is very friendly and the hotel is very nice. The location is fantastic to visit all the Beijing attractions. It is located in a characteristic hutong, near a subway station. The room is good.

I feel a bit snobby writing this review but I have to be honest and this place was more than a bit shabby.

We really wanted to write a good review as the first 2 nights of our 3-day stay were very good. Our room was clean and the staff were all very helpful. While it's definitely more of a hostel than a hotel, it is what you'd expect for the price. The location was ideal. Unfortunately, on our third night, we noticed... More

The hotel was in a great location on one of Beijing's many hutongs. The staff were always polite and friendly and the public spaces were very creative and homely. The rooms were basic, but fine for just a weeks stay and good value for money. I would say the air conditioning needs an update though, it didn't work very well.... More
