I spent a week here with some friends while travelling through China, and it was a great location, inexpensive and very clean with a great and helpful staff. I stayed in a room with 2 beds, and we were very comfortable. The food was also great, and the staff helped us plan our day trips with ease. What I loved most is it is in the hutongs and off the regular tourist path, so you get a better feel for the city. They also have lots of computer and internet access, at a cheap rate. The decor is beautiful, with a pond right in the reception area. This was definitely a great base for our trip.
