Great place to stay, excellent location as can walk to lakes and city centre. Good restaurant, great coffee house, amazing pastry shop - all next door. Bicycles to ride and easy to ride to lakes and city down cycle paths. Would highly recommend and would stay here next time too.

The location was excellent and the rooms were cleaned without moving our stuff around. The hotel was well equipped and there was hot water all the time. Wifi was also quite good. Breakfast had enough variety that anyone could find something that they liked.
The staff couldn't speak English very well but they did their best.

I like the decoration of my room, Japanese style and 2 huge windows so I could see the view. The location is great, easy to reach and very nice and cozy room. I definitely come back if I travel to Beijing.
The only one that I was super disappointed that about the staff and how hospitality from them. The staffs (in receptionist) were not really friendly or even not even think I was their customer. The way they treated me was not acceptable. Laura Yan who spoke only Chinese to my friend (I was the only person who booked the room, not my friend) until I have stopped her and told her that she had to speak English because I do not understand Chinese. She did not even say "sorry" for that and only looked into the computer and completed my check out.

The hotel is in a great location to go out for dinner in the evening and close to metro Ping'anli. Our room was large and well equipped. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful.
The carpet floor in our room was filthy, we did not want to walk barefoot on it - otherwise everything seemed clean. Breakfast was not great, eggs were cooked to order but the rest was not good. Some of the staff spoke little to no English which made communication difficult.

Close to a subway station and at the beginning road of a hutong, the hotel is conveniently reachable and a good base for explorations. A small supermarket is nearby, as is Starbucks (next door) and several restaurants. It was pretty quiet (which is not necessarily usual for Chinese hotels). The staff was very friendly and could speak English reasonably, even if struggling now and then. The hotel has a parrot at the entrance called "Mr. Hui". He entertained us now and then (it can speak "Ni hao" and "Hello" - if it chooses to). We stay several times in different rooms - all are individually, nicely decorated.
An update to the towels would be good, as they have been in use for a bit (still, everyhing was clean!). The air conditioning could be a bit more quiet, but the is a "luxury problem", it was well within limits.

Very nice hotel, in Chinese style. Clean, safe and confortable.
Google Translator was ok but we were expected more English speaker at the reception knowing it is a tourism hotel in city center of Pekin.

The hotel is very close to the subway (line4, exit B). The room was big and the bed was comfortable. Wifi worked well. The Staff was kind, sometimes it was difficult to communicate, but they did their best.
For breakfast there were two options: continental or chinese; personally i prefer the buffet kind of breakfast. The place is pretty central, but there are no real nice places to eat around the hotel.

This hotel exceeded my expectations! The room was big and spotlessly clean, the bathroom was excellent. The location is fantastic - 4 min walk from Ping'anli subway station, in a very walkable neighborhood. Lots of good eateries on the street, both fast food and restaurants. If you are missing Western food, one of the best Beijing microbrewery bars is right in the building and serves pretty good burgers too. Great place to stay!
Breakfast was so-so, though not bad.

The room was very nice — big and clean. Also, the location was very authentic, which is exactly what we wanted. Overall, it was a good experience. Only problem was NO water pressure. Don’t expect to take a shower.
There were two problems. First, the hotel had very low water pressure. Therefore, taking a shower was very difficult. The water just dropped out as a trickle of water. Second, built into the hotel was a coffee shop, but they didn’t open in the morning. In fact, the lobby provided free coffee, but only in the afternoon, never in the morning. We expected coffee in the morning. It never happened. Too bad.

The rooms were quite nice and the staff very helpful. Most of the reception staff could speak English well enough to be very helpful. The breakfast was a combination of very nice Chinese and Western food. With walking distance to some very nice local shops and restaurants.
We couldn't get the air conditioning to work. And the balcony of our room was completely encased in plexiglass, so while we could look outside, we couldn't enjoy the feeling of fresh air one would expect on a balcony.

Arrived fairly late at night in the dark and was a bit worried about the area... However I absolutely loved this place. The staff where friendly and very helpful. I loved the hustle and bustle of local life in this hutong. Plenty of local places to eat and close to the underground station. A first class stay. Thank you
