While hard to locate initially, this little spot is well located both for its quietness despite being located near a busy road and access to shops (although, if it's quiet enough, you can hear 'noisy' guests next door; awkward! Keep this in mind for honeymoon trips).
Our room was clean and comfortable with soft beds. Bathroom came with toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo and body wash. There were slippers and towels provided.
The courtyard was quaint with overhanging grapevines and large bundles of grapes. Bottled water and laundry services are free, which was handy and there was fridge space for food in case you order too much takeaway like we did.
Check in is 24 hours; a godsend for us as our flight was delayed and we arrived in Beijing at 4am.
However, when we asked for a "room make up" they only took out the bins and made the bed. Towels and sheets weren't changed. This might be off putting for some.
