This is a good motel. The location was central on the edge of a hutong. Rooms were a good size. Hotel may be a little old but was clean. This is a botique hotel, if you are intetested in a typical business style western hotel this is not for you. If you prefer some character then book here.

It is within walking distance of most downtown sites but still close to a subway station, line #5. The wait staff are great, have a fair amount of English to help their guests, rooms may not be spacious but...

Stayed here for 5 nights whilst we explored the city. Location is fantastic; 5 mins from a couple of tube stations and it was about 45 mins walk to forbidden city if you like a wander. Restaurants on the street are pretty good and cheap also. There is a coffee shop on site selling either hot or luke-warn coffee depending...

I got very disappointed by the time I got in the hotel room. I dun understand why ppl putting good reviews here. The room was small, not clean at all. They dun even provide mineral water in d room. The kettle for boiling water is dirty. The carpet is full of dusts n dirts. Only the location is okay.
