    double room: 450 Rmb.

    Directions: take subway at andingmen, at walk about 10 mins to the south, find banqiao hutong.

    If you like sunny courtyards and winding hutongs

    by

    This hotel provides all the usuals; a laundry service, single rooms if you prefer a more comfortable, quieter night sleep, and dorms in the basement, whilst breakfast is basic cereal and toast. Prices are very reasonable, and staff are generally friendly.

    The best part of the place however, is its charming location, with the beautiful hutongs right on your doorstep. Also, the architecture is something to behold aswell, as the place was built during the Qing dynasty, and looks and feels as if you are staying in your very own chinese temple.

    (Bike rental and lockers are also provided, whilst you can pay extra for evening meals).

    Unique Quality: HUTONGS: I spent many a peaceful afternoon or morning just wandering the maze of old alleys and streets. And i admit, it was the first real time that it struck me where i was, and just how different this place is compared to home.

    COURTYARDS: Most single rooms share a courtyard with the room adjacent, and this is a perfect way to meet up with fellow travellers, and sit out and soak up the ambience of the distant city noise.

    ARCHITECTURE: unlike most modern or retro-styled buildings, this building truly has a story and a history, and every morning i was there i could not believe where i was.

    Directions: A straight-forward 10-15minute taxi ride or bike ride down Wanfujing Dajie, from the Oriental Plaza.

    Stay in a Qing Dynasty Hotel!

    by

    This hotel is a far cry from the many modern international hotels which can be found in Beijing.

    The hotel is located in the hutongs (great for exploring) just north of the Forbidden City, and a short walk from Andingmen station and the beautiful Yonghe Gong Lama Temple.

    The staff are very friendly with good English and it is easy to make a reservation over the telephone.

    The hotel has single, double and dorm (3 or 4 bed) rooms. As I was travelling alone the dorm accomodation was ideal - I could do my on thing during the day, but we went out as a group for dinner at night, which worked out really well.

    Rooms do not have attatched bathrooms - but when you are staying in such atmospheric surroundings for such a low price - what can you expect?

    Unique Quality: Built in the Qing dynasty, it is a beautufully designed building, with a gorgeous courtyard which is illuminated at night and has a fantastic atmosphere.

    Directions: Most Easily found by taking the Circle subway line to Andingmen station and walking South about 10 minutes, just before you reach the secondmain junction you will see a sign directing you in to the hutongs on the left.

    Stay in a Mongolian General's House

    by

    This structure was built by a Mongolian general during the Qing dynasty. Does this place ever have atmosphere for a hotel. I spent more than a little time lounging in the courtyard.

    I stayed in a dorm room for 3 people. The beds in this dorm were regular hotel beds so there was no problem at all.

    Unique Quality: - Built by Mongolian General during Qing Dynasty.
    - Breakfast included
    - Rooms $30 - $60 US
    - Dorms $12 US

    Directions: It is located in the Hutongs. Find a bus that goes to the Bei Bingma Si bus stop. Walk a short distance south and turn right down the first alley. It is about 50m down the alley. There are some signs that indicate where it is.

    Should this one called "budget" hotel?

    by

    I guess one of the reason why we have less packpacker travellers in Beijing is for hotel reason. Normally you can find either luxury hotel western style (USD80-150) or local one .The latter one I consider is not clean /reliable enough for westerners.

    Unique Quality: I have no chance to visit these hotel, however, I did a telephone survey and it seems that they are fine for budget travellers as most of their guests are westerners. I presume they have the ability to receive non-Chinese spoken travellers.
    This one is one of the few places where you can experience "court yard" Style, clean and quiet. Many of my European colleagues like here.
    RMB360 (USD45)per room per night with Chinese Breakfast

    Directions: In Jiao Dao Kou area

    Lu Song Yuan Hotel

    The following website is NOT the best booking place that you should go but its travelers' review gives you some idea about the hotel:

    http://www.asiahotels.com/hotelinfo/Lu_Song_Yuan_Hotel/

    Lu should be pronounced as lyew. Lu means companion, song = pine tree.

    Unique Quality: Another small hotel with traditional quadrangle courtyard hotel with rooms furnished in traditional Chinese style.

Hao Yuan and Lu Song Yuan hotel

by tistra

Which hotel is better between Hao Yuan hotel and Lu Song Yuan hotel?

Re: Hao Yuan and Lu Song Yuan hotel

by FreeCloud

Have not stayed at any. You can find MANY good reviews of Lu SOng Yuan online. Hao Yuan is a better location, closer to Wang Fu Jing/Tian An Men/Forbidden city etc than LSY. LSY is at a rather convenient location and close as well, just not as close as HY.

My friend just came back from HY, and liked it very much. They said it was a good experience. They booked the 'special room' (search for their official website), and the staff was helpful helping them booking domestic tickets, it rents bikes, has internet access. The breakfast choice might be limited, my friends actually ate on the street (too many choices there!).

How you get to it, take airport shuttle bus, get off at Ya Bao Lu stop, then either take a taxi or walk.

Best luck, and have a good time!
