It was a very nice hotel and the staff was very helpful during our stay. I understand they will be closing for renovations in April ... so if we ever visit
Beijing again.. we will definitely look up this hotel!

Its a really nice hotel situated very close to the subway station. The staff and the management of the hotel are all extremely cooperative and nice so being a first time visitor to Beijing --- its a great experience.
I was travelling to Beijing for work and it was my first time in china so the assistance of the hotel staff proved really useful in all spheres.
for tourists to Beijing a week at this hotel gives the perfect platform to explore this great city. Its convenient for south Asian visitors as well.
the staff are very nice but if they speak better English that would be very helpful to the ordinary foreign visitor who does not know Chinese.
there are a number of 7/11 style stores open 24/7 so getting things to eat or items of daily use isn't a problem.
the BIG CHALLENGE with this property is locating the hotel within the hutong.. its almost impossible to do so in case you don't know Chinese or are unfamiliar with Beijing. Its near Andingmen station but landing at Andingmen without knowing where exactly to go isn't a good idea...
do have a phone wherein you can get someone to check in Chinese with the hotel staff on how to get there else its going to be really difficult.

"Wonderful staff, Great Location, Super Little Hote"
This small, homey little hotel is a gem. Located in one of the busiest hutongs in Beijing, you would never know it once you walk in the door. The atmosphere is so peaceful and laid back. The location is right in the middle of things and close to a subway station. The rooms are small, but the welcoming common room is a great place to meet other travelers. The staff is fantastic! They are so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this unique hotel.
i stayed 5 days in this hotel with my family.the place was near the touristic areas,near to subway and the local life.the area was very secure,hotel was old chinese decorated,clean and the staff was helpfull.it has only 6 rooms,the size of the room was enough.
It's a nice and small family-owned courtyard hotel north of Beijings citycentre within the hutong area and inner Metro-circle of line 2. It's a fifteen minutes walk away from station Andigmen or Guloudajie. Trolley 107 goes along Gulou Dongdajie which can also be reached within 15 minutes walk. Drum and Bell tower with the nighlife areas Qian Hai and Hou Hai are 20 minutes walk away. The owners, except One young woman, do not speak english, but with free wifi, just use google translator and communication will work. Just the light bulb in front of my room (west wing) bothered me at night as the light was shining through the bathroom window and its glassdoor into the room. Hung a textile over the door.
