Really good experience, the hotel is designed in a traditional style, spacious lobby and few waiting area. The most welcoming part was the reception girl speaking English and made the communication much easier. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was renovated and stylish. The location is really convenient next to a street full of shops/foods. Strongly recommended for...

Not the best place. We got a room with a window that was going in to another apartment. That was kind of wierd. When we wanted a safety Box they grabbed one from another room which means that It's not safe when It's not attached... the room it self was okey, Old but clean. Very inefficiently soundproof. I guess that...

In the heart of the hutongs, this hotel really had an authentic feel and a great location. The staff were friendly and had a good standard of English so was fairly easy to communicate. Value for money? I wouldn't say it was. Was just under 1000¥ for a night but I think their are better priced Hutong hotels which would...

3.5./5 good: location! Hard to find but awesome shopping. Decor is Chinese and modern. Staff spoke some English. Breakfast was good. Thick soft, clean towels and bedding. Good wifi. The bad: room had foul sewage stench. If you look closely it's rough around the edges, mold, dust in corners. Fortunately we got moved to a non-smelling room our last night.

Perfect location and value for money. Nice area in the old parts of Hutong blocks. A lot of small restaurants and tasteful streets. A lot of foreign guests and nice atmosphere. Didn't eat in the hotel but a lot of nice food around

I've stayed at Beijing Traditional View Hotel four or five times, and am very happy with it. My trips to Beijing are usually short - a few days layover to work, get over jet lag, or take in the sights on my way from the U.S. to another destination in China. Given that, I want a comfortable, quiet hotel in...

Great location and nice lobby and rooms in the heart of the Hutongs. Very good value for money. Wifi a little patchy but not a major issue for me. Very friendly staff. Signage outside could be better but otherwise a really good choice

It is on a very nice street, close to shops, restaurants, bars. It is a bit difficult to find. Decor in the room was a bit outdated and not very nice. Also the entrance could use so tlc. There is a bar opposite the hotel which is very nice and very friendly staff.
