Absolutely Disgusting

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
The room that my mother and I stayed in was absolutely disgusting. As soon as we opened the door, we were hit with an unexplainable odor. The smell was so strong that even after opening the windows to let it air out for an hour, you could still smell the awful odor. We were woken up several times at night from the smell. The beds were so disgusting that both my mother and I slept on top of the covers with all of our clothes on - we just used our jackets are blankets. The walls around the bed had mold to the point that parts of the wall were black and soft to the touch. The beds were rock hard. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I have stayed at hostels that were more appealing than this accommodation.

Great base for seeing the sights

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
Stayed for a week with a Chinese friend. Surrounding lane-ways are part of old Beijing and it's near the Drum Tower. Bus stops two minutes away, subway 5 minute walk. Staff pleasant but with little English. Hassle-free stay

STAFF SERVICE NOT GOOD

Would not recommend Sat, May 23, 2015
Because I use my orbucks, I need not pay .I stayed there for two night. When I check out and hurry to go airport , they said I have no reservation and did not pay any money before. They requested me to pay again. My phone is not work in China, and they cannot phone for me. At that moment ,I almost cry, why they did not ask me when I check in, then I still have time to follow up. No choice, I should catch my flight. I almost ready to pay again. Lucky, at last they find my record, I need not pay again. Next time, when you check in ,make sure they had receive your reservation and bill.

Reasonable

Would recommend Sat, Nov 29, 2014
Stayed two nights at this location. It's a decent place, clean and quiet. The room ventilation is not the best, but it is still comfortable. It is located in a quieter area, and still accessible to transportation, restaurants, and shopping. It's a budget stay, but I liked the quiet and less busy setting. And nice to be away from so much of the tourist crowd, a little more local feel.

Dining

It is a short walk to a lot of local restaurants and shopping. The small local lake areas are great for evening walks and shopping.

Beijing getaway

Would recommend Tue, Sep 24, 2013
This hotel is great. When you see it from outside it looks very dingy but inside I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spotless and were cleaned everyday. Free soap, shower gel etc which I wasn't expecting from a budget hotel. It was the Mid-Autumn festival so we received free moon cakes in our room. The area around here is nice, there are a lot of nice little cafes, bars and restaurants to explore. A short walk away is Hou Hai along the lake which is great for nightlife and souvenir shopping. I recommend the Reggae bar there, they had a really awesome live band. You can even haggle the price of drinks at some of the bars when it's near closing time. The metro is close to the hotel. However, the directions I found online where completely wrong so it was difficult to find. If you can find exit G from the metro it's much better. Just go straight from there and it's one of the first hutongs on the left (opposite McDonalds and the youth hostel) The youth hostel bar is also very cheap and has special offers on every day. The only negative thing about this place is the staff. The guy on the front desk was quite rude and very abrupt with us when we asked about great wall tours. He was no help at all so we decided to book through another tour company.

Time saver

If you don't want to go on a full day trip to the Great wall, book a private driver to take you there and back. It cost us 600 for return for two people. Some places tried to charge us double that. They will tell you it's too expensive for a taxi and that you should get a bus tour. Always negotiate. Other bus tours take you to tea shops, jade factories, shopping etc. We were able to go straight to the wall, hike for a few hours (pack our own food) then come straight back. Much better!
