Romantic hotel in Beijing
We were there 2 years ago, in August and the memories still very good.
The staff was very friendly and the accommodation was like in a 5 star hotel.
Our room have a large LCD flat screen, a computer with free internet and a wonderful bamboo furniture.
the tea bar is alos very interesting with living turtle around you.
The restaurant (BF only) was clean and the choice (western only) was quite large.
I will recommend this hotel for sure
Directions: Walking distance from hutong lake and bell house.
Hotel with garden in Hutong
Nice chinese style hotel with garden in the middle of a hutong and in walking distance of several sights like the drum tower. Price double room 880 rmb and breakfast 40 rmb.
They have a pickup service from the airport.
Unique Quality: Great garden. You can eat in the restaurant outside in the middle of Beijing without the normal traffic sounds.
Good connection to the airport. But if you go there. Take your time. Filling out all the necessary papers take more time than you'd expect. The drive was somewhat more than 30 minutes, but checking in cost us allmost two hours. So take your time.
Fusing the old and the new
This hotels offers traditional Chinese architecture and ambience. The traditional bamboo garden is pleasantly relaxing, while the hotel is considerably greener than the rest of Beijing. The amenities include restaurant, bar, convenience store, various tourist booking services, and a traditional massage and herbal treatment center. A cautionary word on the massage to come later.
The room has nice Ming Dynasty styled furniture. Stardard rooms comes with one queen sized bed or 2 twin sized beds. The bathrooms are western styled. We stayed in 2 different rooms. The second bathroom stunk. (That's not saying much cause so many bathrooms stink in China. This one was not particularly pungent or maybe our noses just got used to the odor.) The rooms have TV, refrigerator, and air conditioning.
The business center has internet connection: 0.5 RMB per minute.
Okay, back to the massage and herbal center. It's pretty pricey and the staff will upsale at any chance they get. So be wary.
Standard room is 780 RMB.
Unique Quality: The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to the Hutongs, old Drum Tower, and Ho Hai Lake area. It is hidden in a residential neighorhood, so you get a glimpse of the daily lives of the city's residents.
The best way to reach the Hutongs and Ho Hai is to make a left out the hotel's front door and cut through the Hutongs. It takes 5-10 minutes walking. Ho Hai has many bars that all look the same, big colorful couches outside but very few people sitting in them.
Prince Gong's Palace and Song Qing Ling's (Sun Yat Sen's wife) former residence are situated around the lake, as well as the Hutong tours.
Directions: Jiu Gu Lou Da Jie, near old Drum Tower
A courtyard hotel on a Hutong near the lakes
Before going to Harbin, I stayed one night at a conventional hotel, the Songhe. How ordinaire, and what a sterile neighborhood (Wangfujing).
But for my real time in Beijing, I stayed at the Bamboo Garden, and that was very special. Cute small room with polished floor and antiques, fine breakfast, helpful staff, very quiet.
It is an unusual neighborhood to stay in, but for me it really hit the spot.
Unique Quality: If you stay at the Bamboo Garden, learn right away how it connects to the lake area by going deeper in the Hutong. That way you can use the metro nearby for major transportation, but you can simply walk through the Hutong to the lakes, the restaurants, the little tea shops...
Directions: 5 minutes walk from Gulou Dajie metro station. Walk South on the big avenue and take the first Hutong on the Right. The hotel is indicated on the map in the metro station.
3star american standard in typical chinese-garden
Unique Quality: a typical Chinese-garden –style hotel in a quiet lane by the Drum Tower in the center of the old town of Beijing, has received hundred and thousand visitors from both home and abroad and has been highly appreciated by them. As it was the residence of some well-known persons, such as Li Lianying the head unique of late Qing Dynasty, Sheng Xuanhai, the Post Minister in early 1920s, Dong Biwu and Kang Sheng, the former Chinese leaders, and the others, it has been well designed and decorated with pavilions and corridors, hills and springs, bamboo and trees.
standard room: 380-490Rmb.
suite and deluxe suite: 800-1200Rmb.
Directions: take subway to Gu Lou(Drum Tower).
Classical Chinese-garden style hotel!
Located in a quiet , peaceful lane west of the Drum Tower in the north part of Beijing.It is closed to many famous tourists sites like Houhai, Lama Temple ....easy accessible with subway and bus.....
It's an excellent hotel for foreighers to experience true Chinese style articheture and garden.
2 single rooms and 22 standard rooms. Difficult to bargain for the price as they have very good business. Could try during winter time when they are not very demanding.
Unique Quality: My friends have stayed there and like it. Sounds great!
Directions: Close to Drama Tower, get off from Gu Lou station by subway.
Secluded hutong hotel
I have NOT stayed at this hotel, but have visited it several times for a coffee. The staf have always been friendly and helpful.
The hotel is 3-star and is based around aold hutongs, very close to the Bell and Drum Towers in one of the older parts of Beijing. It is in an excellent location for the main sites of Beijing.
Unique Quality: It was formerly the home of a Qing Minister of Posts, and more recently the home of the notorious Kang Sheng.
It is like staying in a private house or a museum, with covered corridors winding through little gardens and clusters of bamboo.
Rooms apparently have TV, minibar, etc.
Directions: Xicheng district, west of the Bell Tower.
Traditional Beijing Residential Courtyard
I have never stayed there, but it is one of the few such type which I am interested.
Details in its website.
Unique Quality: Located in a traditional residential neighborhood.
A traditional Chinese courtyard garden setting. Rooms furnished with traditional furniture.
Luxury in mind setting, peaceful, serene atmosphere, but not luxury in terms of facilities.

Suite life in Beijing
An inn in disguise. Nestled inside a common backstreet yet surrounded with lots of restaurants, shopping stores where locals go. It has a nice courtyard, a pleasant dining room and an excellent room. The service is outstanding and yes! they do speak English and Chinese... very helpful and accommodating.
Hotel for a Good Chinese Experience
I stayed in a room with two beds, a cable tv- they provide neat and tidy restrooms (with above floor toilets, super yay!) and overall is has very pretty architecture. It is in a Hutong, which is an old Chinese neighborhood, which greatly adds to your experience.
Here is a page listing more of its amenities:
http://www.bbgh.com.cn/htm/room/en_US/roomdesp-1.htm This hotel is not in the tourist district, but by no means is out of the way. A few blocks away from this hotel is the end of the Grand Canal, and the Forbidden city is within walking distance really. The price is great, and the people are very kind.
Down the street- a block away- is a hidden treasure; a dumpling place where they serve some of the best dumplings at a great price.
Bamboo Garden Hotel
I would just like to know if anyone has stayed at the Bamboo Garden Hotel in Beijing.
Also we will be going in early December, so do you think it would be cold in the rooms at this hotel?
RE: Bamboo Garden Hotel
third rank hotel.is warm in December.
RE: RE: Bamboo Garden Hotel
I have never stayed there, but looked at their webpage long time ago.
No, there should be at least thermo heater in the room, if not air conditioning. It should NOT be cold in the rooms. But could be very cold out door.
Have a good time!
