    The best thing about this hotel/hostel was the location in the hutong. And the Staff that was very helpful. NeXT Door is à great Lottie Chinese restaurant. This was china for real.

    Nothing to complain about. The sink in the shower was just cute.

    The hotel is in a good position to visit the city. The people working there are very kind and try to help you as much as possible. There's a very nice terrace on the roof.

    The receptionists don't speak english very well, except one girl, but they are very nice and available. We had to ask to clean better the bathroom and to change the towels.

    The room is clean and well kept; comfortable good-sizes beds, although the bathroom in the family suite is quite cramped. Good location, close to bus stations and a short walk to the subway. Excellent staff, very friendly and happy to meet our requests. Would recommend this to travellers looking for a cheaper alternative to a hotel, with a more homely feel of a Chinese style b&b

    Friendly staff, but not all of them speaking well English. Internet cable in the room, no problem with the connection. Nice inner yard

    Small, uncomfortable and dark room. Very hot despite of the airconditioner, which apparently did not function quite well. No cleaning ( I even found some staff, belonging to previous tourists), no towel change for 5 nights. Didn't like much the breakfast

    The staff was kind and the room was very cheap.

    There seemed to be no heating in the room. It was very very cold.

    The Hutong style-hotel is akin to a boutique hotel of the west. The rooms are classic but reasonably modern. Yet, it retained the warmth one would expect of a backpackers' lodge. The young people manning the hotel are welcoming and warm. The location is also great, being close to many shops and within walking distance to Wang Fujing.

    Staff were very friendly and try to be helpful. Location was close to subway or a moderate walk into central Beijing. Location on a nice hutong was great to be part of... very cozy rooms and a nice little courtyard.

    At times very loud noises from courtyard and doors closing.

    If you're looking for some luxury to shut down after a long day, there might be better options for you. If you want an authentic experience in a place that's also frequented by locals and has the bustle of Beijing hutongs rather than westernized high-rise surroundings, this is the place to be. The hotel staff ranged from friendly to incredibly awesome and enhanced my stay significantly. Some speak better English than others. My single room was not overyly fancy but had everything you need - clean (firm) bed, chairs, desk, bathroom with shower curtain, slippers and sitting toilet (I believe the dorms use the squatting toilet next to the courtyard), wifi that most often works in the back of the hotel and always in the front. Western breakfast (sometimes with sweet dumplings) from 7:30 to 9 is included and mostly similar, but tasty. The courtyard is a nice place to hang out and read, very bright and pretty with a good selection of books and magazines. The real reason to go to the Xiao Yuan is the staff and hotel bar though, if you speak a little Chinese (mine is very bad) and want to make friends with young locals, it doesn't take much for them to take you out to a karaoke night or invite you to join a card game. Occasionally the hotel will throw a BBQ and get people talking. The front desk offers tours to the Great Wall, Beijing Opera, Kung Fu performance, etc. Subway is a 10 minutes walk, small restaurants and groceries right next door.

    The price for a small bottle of Yanjing beer in the hotel bar could be lower. Also, the view isn't terrific..

    Hotel staff was excellent and extremely helpfull, they really give the place something special

    Breaksfast times were not so flexible (7.30 am until 9.am) and I expected a bit more of the room after seeing the photos (compared with the price).

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated all the warm-hearted service during our stay, and enjoyed the Peking style room very much. The location was convenient for city touring. Just around 20m walk to Forbidden City if you like, 10m walk to a very nice local Peking food restaurant which the hotel staff recommended to us. It was really very delicious and not expensive.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke good English.

    The rooms were not cleaned often and my bed was never made. I found things belonging to the previous guest. It did not bother me that much considering it was a budget hotel - you get what you pay for.

    Lovely hotel, clean, comfortable and in an interesting hutong with lots of local feel and fun restaurants

  • Group of friends

    The staff was extremelly helpful. they was speaking english and helped with everything they can. the tour arranging was very good and for reasonable price. i suggest that. for example going to great wall and ming of tombs u can get extra for that price-like visiting jade factory, superb lunch chineese style and going to the silk museum. the A/C in the room was fantastic.staying at this hotel we had twin room at the start and double room at the end. i must say the interior of the double room was great- chineese style with red curtains against the bed, tea table, sofa and separate sitting area etc. i wud suggest double room instead of twin room. also the terace on the second floor of the hotel was great.

    the location wasnt very central as it mentined below. had to walk about 20min to the nearest metro station. and also the information how to get to the hotel was wrong. actually u have to take the metro line 5 to DONGSI station, gett off on exit C and than turn left, go straight until u find lishi hutong street. i think thats the closest way u can get to the hotel without any losting around.please consider that. the neiborhoud was not pleasant, more like hutong style. the hotel is more like a hostel so please consider ur choice with that. the breakfast was very poor but chineese style. the bad lighting in the room even when switching on all the lights. the bathroom is bad because when taking shower the water goes all around the floor. so for example if want to go to the toilet have to stand in the water as shower fluds all the bathroom floor.
