Good experience. Exceptional if one wants to see something different. Not your usual hotel. People are nice. Interesting to see that most customers are Caucasian. Staying there is already a hutong experience. Highly recommended.

Located in the city centre, this traditional Chinese courtyard hotel is three km (two miles) from Tiananmen Square and …More
Staff was very helpful and in English. Shown where to eat not far from the hotel. Arranged for pickup and transport from and back to airport. Breakfasts were varied and plentiful with fresh juice and coffee. Courtyard living with modern amenities. Location is close to the Forbidden City and other major sites.
I love this hotel and try to stay there every time I go to Beijing. It is a traditional 300 year old courtyard style house, which is laid out beautifully. It has everything from the most affordable, modest rooms (which do not include a bathroom), to beautifully spacious rooms that do include a bathroom.
The location of the hotel is very convenient, especially if you plan to use the Metro while in Beijing. It is closest to the "Dengshikou" station (on line #5), and about a 7 minute walk from there. If you take the "C" exit, cross Dengsi South Street, until you reach "Xitangzi Hutong". Turn right down the hutong, and walk almost all the way to the end of the street. There you will see a traditional gate for a courtyard house marked "No. 35, Xitangzi Hutong". Walk through the gate to the first building and enter. This is the office and breakfast room.
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.
This boutique hotel is a gem located in the heart of many hutongs/alleys. So many attractions are within walking distance. The breakfast buffet is only $5 which has the best coffee I tasted in China and the food is delicious. Don't worry, it is primarily a western style buffet! For sure, I will stay with them on my next trip to Beijing.
We stayed there for 5D4N, basically the hotel staffs were very efficient and attentive. The room was very comfortable; sheets were clean and floor was very clean as well. The only downside was that the entrance of the hotel was going through some minor makeover, this causing an awful cement smell whenever we enter or exit the hotel, the location of the hotel is quite convenient, located in nanluoguxiang with lots of restaurants and different kinda of street food. When the taxi took us there, he had to let us get off outside an alley and we had to tow our luggage through the whole stretch of road to look for the hotel ourselves, so be prepared to do some minimal walking . Distance from the hotel to the nearest train station (nanluoguxiang station) is about 10-15min walk.
Great place to stay if you want to experience the feel of a chinese courtyard house in a hutong. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are on the small side by today's standards, but that is part of the charm. They worked with what the original building had to offer when they converted it to a small hotel. The staff was really great. Could not have been more helpful.
