Small but nice Hutong lodging

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 17, 2013

This is a Hutong style house directly next to Forbidden City. This is a positive if you want to see Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. The hotel is not easy to find. And as you read later, this is the main reason not to use a taxi to get around for this hotel. The hotel is down an alley way and the door is around A corner. There is a small street type sign from the road to the alley and another small one at the corner the entrance is hidden behind.

You enter in a storage area and then into a small office. From there is an open walk way into the courtyard. The courtyard is covered by a glass ceiling. In the courtyard are several traditional tables and a long table with two computers for guest access. Wifi is free and available in all rooms but really not that strong.

My room was tucked away at the base of some stairs on the first floor. It was very dark going to my room as there was no light outside of it. Made it hard to find the key hold. The room is small and furnished with a traditional Chinese canopy bed which was really nice. The mattress was good and firm just how I like it. One problem with the bed was that there was no sheet between the mattress cover and the comforter. So you were either really hot or cool during the night. The room did have central air and could make it as cool as you like it.

Where the room really fell short was the bathroom. The bathroom was small and the shower was the entire bathroom. Everything gets wet. Made it difficult to use the sink and mirror after a shower. Probably typical for China but I do not like it at all.

The staff were very friendly and helpful as they could be. They would write addresses in Chinese so I could give them to taxi drivers. However, issues with Beijing taxi drivers, even with an address in Chinese was a huge problem.

Directions: On the street next to Forbidden City
