We stayed for 5 nights in a Deluxe room overlooking the courtyard last week and it was well worth it. We were able to watch the shadow puppet show from our window, a great show. We did not find the noise from the courtyard intrusive at any time and our sleep, on firm but comfortable beds, was never disturbed. Breakfast...

This is a hipster (I use the word as a positive) boutique B&B. It's a number of buildings in the old Hutung slum area which have been sympathetically converted into a clean, modern small B&B. the room was a bit small but otherwise perfectly acceptable. The neighbourhood itself is very interesting - part of the disappearing China; there are still...

It was well furnished and the receptionists were so helpful! Three times a week, they had a shadow art performance. You might also participate a course to learn it or to paint the shadow art figures. It was conveniently situated(10minutes to the tube station Beihai North). It's perfect for you, if you like to see how the habitants live, because...

Area is very residential but short walk from bars and nightlife of lakes area. You are right in the heart of a local area...

Nice cosy hotel which has everything you require and a beautiful artistic theme. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast is good too. The only thing I would say is the location is central in terms of getting to places but is located in a narrow and strange alleyway. It's not a touristic area which I guess can be...

As the Hutongs are an area most tourists are advised to visit in Beijing we thought we were doing ourselves a favour by staying smack in the middle. However, it is now clear there is a reason why the Hutongs are only a minor, half-day feature on many travel itineraries. They are not that easy to get to (relatively) and...

Being located in the Shichahai district. A historical area of Bejing was incredible. A fifteen minute walk in any direction brought you into the shopping, eating or a walk along a couple of lakes. The lobby of the hotel is like a small museum dedicated to the shadow art puppet performance, which a performance takes place a couple of times...

“Choose a Deluxe room overlooking the courtyard”
 of 5 bubbles kmaz100, 24 Mar 2017 | Read review
“Opt for the deluxe rather than standard if you want more space. Standard room is fine for two but if it's not much more it's probably worth it. Bathroom was clean and modern too”

“The room was almost perfect.quiet,spacious, lots of plug in for electronics. A WiFi that worked. Due to winter the heat was on, and like any central heating anywhere not easy to control the heating. Our room was hot. We opened balcony door to let in some air.”
