It was worth the stay.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 3, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2012. It is located in one of the small alley (hutong) and it's within walking distance from Ping'Anli subway station in Xicheng area. To go to the hotel from Ping'Anli station, go out the station at Ping'Anli South street and walk south towards Xisi North Street. Cross the intersection at Ping'Anli West Street. Turn into the Xisi North 7th Alley - the second alley on your left. There are signboards but I can't exactly remember if they have it in English or not. Buses are available too at the main street (Xisi North Street).

Friendly staff and clean place, although the hotel can improve a bit on their housekeeping effort - beds were not made by the hotel during our entire stay there. Toilet paper was only replenished on day 1 and we had to ask for those from the front desk on the other day. The in room phone was not working too but it was not fixed by the time we check out. There were funny rubbery smell in our bathroom but nothing intolerable.

We were actually booked on another hotel (Hostel 161) which is Super 8 Beijing Xisi's (formerly Lotus Courtyard Hostel) sister hotel. Booking for the hostel was made online via booking.com and we only learned that the hostel was closed for renovation 1 week prior to our departure to Beijing when we wrote in to confirm our stay. We were indeed very apprehensive at that point but Hostel 161 has assured us that they have transferred our booking to Super 8 Xisi with no extra cost incurred.

The hotel required RMB100 as deposit upon check in, which is refundable. Hair dryer and mosquito mat heater was available in the room.

We are happy as we have only paid for a 2-night-stay at a hostel but ended up staying in a courtyard hotel. We had to change our itinerary a bit but it was worth the stay.

Unique Quality: Courtyard setup. Close to Xisi subway station.
