hotel really close to forbiddden city and at 20min by walf from the nearest subway station. The shower wasn't really clean. Staff was professional and speak english. We got a room without window. Really chinese Neighborhood. Pretty good hotel if you like to walk, if you are not too neat freak and with small budget.

I didn't mind this hotel but it had a number of shortcomings. The wifi was slow as is normal in China, it was a little noisy but above all it is not close to any metro link (don't let google maps fool you it is a long walk). Also you are at the wrong end of the Forbidden City (you... More

In my opinion this hotel offers good value for money since the location is excellent and the Chinese breakfast was ok (except on the last day when they didn't refill) It's close to a lot of attractions as well as to public transport. I liked the area in general, lot's of small supermarkets and restaurants. Our rooms was decent in... More

Although it is conveniently located in a hutong close to the Forbidden City, any other city sight requires a long walk and metro link, which can be very tiring in Beijing. The hotel is fairly old, rooms are old-fashioned, covered with carpets and stains. WiFi was free, but very slow. Only some members of the staff could speak English. They... More

This is down a hutong road. Which means markets and fruits stalls. Taxi knew where it was. The tourist lady could speak english but heard the trips are overpriced. Girl on front desk could speak little but enough to understand. Room was 314. Big room for solo person. Room did smell of tabacco. They don't change bed sheets they just... More

Pros: Excellent location. The area has a very cool local feel and it's close to everything. Obviously, the price. Comfortable and clean beds. Cons: The place needs a good scrubbing. The shower, the walls, the rug. No one speaks English, which is okay, but I count it as a con because it just makes things complicated for travelers. The wifi... More

The hotel is located within a rock's throw from The forbidden city and Jingshan park, and there are both Western style cafées and Chinese cuisines just outside, as well as small shops and convenience stores. We got a twin room for less than 300 RMB per night. It could have preferaby been cleaner (like worn-out walls and cigarette burn marks... More

This place is not very convenient to public transport, a little, but not very. The Hotel's closest subway station is Dongsi. But it's takes a while to walk from there (and it was hard to find). Buses are close though. But it is very close to the forbidden city! :) The hotel staff barely speak english and are not very... More
