Nice clean hotel in Xisi area close to metro but away from busy traffic. Renovated traditional hutong alley house. Friendly staff speaks English and offers guided tours. Bathroom narrow and nothing special but in general really charming and family style hotel. Would sure stay there again.

Hotel location is good. In between 平安里 and 西四 MRT station. Room we had does not come with any cabinet. However, it still meet our expectation as a comfy room. Michael; one of the owners is very helpful thought out our stay. Certainly will recommend friends who plan to travel to Beijing.
