We were delighted with this choice of hotel. It’s situated down a Hutong and takes you by surprise on approach. The road is a bit scruffy but don’t let that put you off. The hotel is a quiet oasis and a short walk from lots of restaurants and the old Bell and Drum towers.
The reception staff were friendly (in contrast to some reports that I’d read) and spoke good English. The hotel buildings are set around a tranquil courtyard. The bedrooms are a good size and decorated in Chinese style. There was a huge, comfortable bed. The room was very clean with a nice bathroom and a good shower. There was even a PC in the room for free internet access! The air conditioning worked although I would have liked it to be a little cooler.
breakfast buffet was decent and had
enough western food. We ate at the hotel
one evening and found it to be very good
We found it easy to navigate our way to this hotel as it is on the edge of the Hutongs. I would definitely stay here again.
