Good things: This is a great place in central part of Beijing. Very close to subway line and Tiananmen (3 stops + 1 transfer). Character building located in one of hutong. Good value for money. Friendly and respectable staff. Negative: No restaurant and airport transfers. No lift. Ask for a ground floor room if you have accessiblity requirement or carrying...

The locations is fine, however there are some serious shortcomings. It is expensive for what it is, staff hardly has a clue about customer service, no English spoken, rainwater leaks in the damp room, lousy internet policy (max. one device per room). There are far better places in central Beijing than this courtyard hotel. I wouldn't recommend it.

I've been traveling with my girlfriend around the world for four months and we've stayed in some questionable hostels/hotels/air bnb rooms/couchsurfing couches on our journey. We just got off the trans-siberian rail after six full days in a train compartment with two other people without shower facilities so we're accustomed tight spaces, odd smells, and lack of privacy. With that...

We only spent one night in this hotel and picked it so we could stay in a hutong hotel at an affordable price (about $30 a night). The hotel had a fun layout, centered around a nice courtyard (too cold to use in March). The rooms all open an semi-enclosed hallway but the room was warm. The room was very...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Friendly staff and clean place, although the hotel can improve a bit on their housekeeping effort - beds were not made by the hotel during our entire stay there. Toilet paper was only replenished on day 1 and we had to ask for those from the front desk on the other day. The in...

Staff and place were great. Very quiet location with a beautiful inner courtyard in a Hutong near to plenty of nice restaurnts and Xidan shopping area. But I stayed for 4 nights and they did not clean bathrooms or bedrooms over all this time!
