4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Perfect place to stay in Beijing. Walking distance to 2 great shopping/eating locations, as well as the Forbidden City and parks. Rooms were small, but had everything we needed and breakfast was great.

Very helpful staff and central location . The staff especially Henry, always took the initiative to assist us. The room was very clean

Good location but hard to find. Shadow art performance is impressed. Closing to lots of major tour interested points

The hotel is located in a picturesque working-class houton. One wanders through narrow lanes that have changed little since in the Qing Dynasty just a short walk to Houhai Lake/Entertainment District. However, the romances comes with some downsides. It is almost impossible to get a taxi to take you through the narrow lanes to the hotel. So, while you can get picked up in front of the hotel, expect to walk back a few blocks from a major street. InIt is a tiny boutique hotel, with an interesting Shichahai Shadow Art show, informal dumpling making classes, and a good bar. The rooms are small (average for Beijing hotels), clean, and modern. There is not a real restaurant. But, the hotel kitchen serves up a burger or Chinese dumplings at a moments notice:)

No.24 Song Shu Jie, Xicheng District Beijing Beijing
