A very good alternative to the fancy hotels and modern possibilities in Beijing. It is lost in a huton not far from the bell tower. After my 4th time in Beijing, I appreciated the fact that I really lived the Beijing experience among the Beijing people. That is the real advantage of this place. The hutong house is nicely renovated... More

This hotel is pretty, there's no doubt about that. When you walk in, you really feel like you're entering someone's home. The beautiful entry way, the common area, the rooms, all are pretty and feel very authentic. When we arrived, there was even a young girl strumming on the Chinese mandolin. We certainly felt like we had arrived in China.... More

Stayed here for eight nights and thoroughly enjoyed this unique courtyard style hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable, although if you re expecting a Western hotel chain experience you'll be disappointed. Price included a reasonable breakfast. Felt strong sense of security without it being obvious. The location is excellent. Located in one of the... More

I stayed at the Old Beijing Squarevwith a friend for 2 nights. On arrival at about 3pm nobody seemed to know we were coming, our room wasn't ready so we had to wait for it to be cleaned even though it looked like there were hardly any other people staying, and then they put us in the wrong room type.......

We just returned from staying at the Old Beijing Square Hotel. Our taxi from the airport had some trouble finding the hotel, but after asking a local for some directions we eventually tracked it down.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay at the Old Beijing Square Hotel. If you truly want to experience the city, the location could not be beat. The maze of neighborhoods known as the "hutongs" provided excellent walking adventures. The 350-year old courtyard home, now a small hotel with 18-rooms, was an oasis of calm in the busy, huge...

Our hotel is located at No.38,Baochong Hutong, Dongcheng District, Beijing, with an housing area of together 700 square meters. Nearby is the Bell House, as well as South Luogu Alley, Houhai, Lord Chunqin's Mansion, Lord Gongqin's Mansion, North Sea Park, Imperial Academy, Jingshan Park, as well as the Lama Buddhist Temple. Our location is perfect and transportation is convenient. Elegant and comfortable, the hotel is of rare quietness in this fast-pace city life. Lively 200-year-old date tree stands still within the courtyard , till now fruitful on autumn; back the courtyard is the luxuriant wisteria, below which stone table stands, which could be the perfect place for friends' chatting. The hotel could provide you a nice place to enjoy the very leisure in the busy life. ... more   less
