It has a lovely,relaxing and safe atmosphere in the middle of the hussle and bussle city life. Traditional bedroom interiors very nice.
shower was not hot in the morning,
The place was reasonably clean, and the staff spoke English fairly well.
If I had to describe the hotel by one word (after consulting the dictionary) I would choose "ramshackle". At least it is more descriptive of the establishment than the word "business hotel" which is on the sign. Staff should try to take a short walk outside the hotel, since they tend to misinform guests when it comes to the local area.
The building is very close to Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City. You just walk about 250 meters down the and turn right. Nachinzi street is pretty much going thru a revamp now and will look much better soon. Inside, courtyard is very clean and interesting. Staff is friendly. Laundry service is cheap. Area seems pretty safe.
They did not change the sheets of our bed ($100 a night!) for 7 nights and once the room was not swept. This is unacceptable and you should ask them to change it and check to make sure. TV, a 32in plasma, has only chinese channels. Walls are a little bare. How about a shower curtain to separate the shower area and the toilet. Staff seemed somewhat inexperienced.
Welcoming and helpfull hotel people. Quaint interior, done with local flair. Location is excellent: walking distance to Forbidden City, pedestrian mall area and restaurants. Nice main street (don't miss the red wall/gate adjacent to beautiful park) - first time not easy to locate in ancient urban structure; once you do, easy to return to. Good choice of restaurants in the vicinity. Excellent Internet WIFI connection.
Minor point: You might wanna ask for some extra towels, just in case the pouring rain starts and your bathroom turnes into a swimming pool.
Location excellent 1 street away from forbidden city staff speak english and really friendly. Tradional courtyard hutong venue which is quaint and quiet.
