5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Loved the ambience

We absolutely loved the ambience, decoration and the overall vibe of the hotel. The shadow art theme is all over the lobby, main area and in each room and are all done very well, the shadow puppet play was lovely and the staff very helpful and attentive. Rooms are a bit on the small side but this was more than clear when we made our booking so it was not an issue at all. The location is in the Hutong, but it is easily accessible and less than a 10 minute walk to the lakes or the subway station. The information we received before arrival, the notes from the staff at the reception and in our room were very well prepared and would be very helpful to those traveling to Beijing for the first time.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

We had the misfortune to arrive in Beijing during the coronavirus outbreak and the staff could not have been more helpful. They allowed us to cancel without charges. The hotel is situated in the historic hutongs and beautifully decorated in traditional style. We were so sorry we could not stay longer.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Good sized room, bed and bathroom, in a hotel which is positioned within the hutong’s. Walking distance to plenty of places to eat and drink, with Houhai Park having a good selection of bars and public transport about 10 minutes walk away. Small but satisfying selection for breakfast, but much of it was not hot. Overall not bad.
