I especially liked the location, close to the subway and next to many restaurants with variety of prices and gastronomic type, as well as the walking distance of the Forbidden City or the Wangfujing Street. I did not enjoy staying in a room located downstairs because it has little natural light. I suggest that anyone staying at this hostel request... More

I also checked in at this hotel, and found bed bugs in the three person room that we had booked. I understand that management have called these 'little friends' from the garden in another review. This is simply not the case. Even if a window was left open, bugs wouldn't have got into the hospital corners of the beds. I... More

We arrived at midnight to find that the room had bedbugs (luckily we spotted them before we went to bed!) so we refused to stay, as they didn't have another room free.

When we arrived in Beijing main station, our taxi had some trouble finding this place. He drove us down a dingy little alleyway and I was really worried about the quality of the establishment, given the surroundings. The hotel front has a big "161" so we were able to locate it. The hotel is not one building, but rather a... More
