The hotel is in the middle of Hutong alley.
Early morning or evening when the temperature is milder, you can see people's life just in front of the hotel.
The room was small but you can relax in the hotel lounge where there are lots of beautiful arts books and art.
A little far from the subway station but fun to walk through the alley to get there.
I recommend this hotel in Beijing for a vacation stay.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 9 days. It was wonderful. One of the their staff members (I'm not sure of her title), Lisa was incredibly helpful. She showed us where to eat and some of the activities in the area, and she helped us arrange a tour bus to the Great Wall. The whole staff was great but Lisa was a standout to us.
The rooms themselves were really nice. The hotel used to be an official's home way back when and it's a traditional courtyard. The courtyard itself is covered so it stays nice and warm but still let's in a lot of light. They serve breakfast in the mornings, either Western or Chinese.
Although mainly found Chinese travellers there, I found it great. Staff were very helpful. There was at least one person who could speak in English. They also told me how to get about in the subway when asked. However, if you want to travel to Great Wall, hotel will not arrange a tour bus for you. I hired a taxi because I had one day allocated to go to Great Wall and it suited me. Also, hotel will not arrange airport transfer bus. There are taxis, and I took one, as I had luggage that I cannot carry in the subway. I found Chinese people as helpful people. Some will take a few minutes to show you directions. These seldom happen in a western country. If you know Chinese language, even a little, it will definitely help, as a few can communicate in English.

You cannot go wrong with this hotel. It is located just around the corner from the metro station. Tienanmen, Forbidden City, Silk Market are just within 20 minutes by metro. There are coffee shops, McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and many Chinese restaurants around etc. Hotel staff is very accommodating, rooms are clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Breakfast and room service is a bit pricy.
TIP - Ask for non-smoking rooms if you are allergic.
