    Pleasant stay in very beautiful courtyard

    Hotel was quite difficult to find also by taxi drivers: business card with map should be bigger. Refrigerator in room was a bit too loud.
    Very beautiful inner courtyard and pleasant room with good breakfast.

    We enjoyed our stay at Michaels, it was comfortable, clean, friendly and conveneient.

    The one downside to the property is probably the location. It is not near any of the tourist sites, so it's maybe not the most exciting area. That being said, it was very easy to get to the subway (10 minute walk), there are small shops not too far away and it is a nice, quiet residential neighbourhood.
    Three of us stayed in the Emperor's Suite for four nights. The room was very large and the extra roll away bed was surprisingly comfortable! The couch, chairs and living space was a nice place to relax after a day of sightseeing or to visit in the morning. The bathroom was also large, very clean and bright. The front desk staff ordered tickets for a few things for us, they were so helpful and professional. We enjoyed the breakfast on a few mornings, it had a great selection of Western and Chinese food and was a good start to a busy day. The courtyard area is clean, bright and comfortable as well.

    Easy to find - good base for touring Beijing!

    The hotel was on the expensive side, for a place with no extra facilities. The buffet breakfast was pretty limited in terms of selection, but adequate.
    A comfortable, warm and quiet room, clean bathroom, and friendly English-speaking staff. Covered courtyard as a relaxation and breakfast area. Good wifi connection. Around 5-10 minutes to the metro. Good base for touring Beijing!

    The hotel is located quite close to the underground and when you are there it seems like you are living in a traditional Chinese house

    Pleasant stay, but not at the heights suggested by previous reviews.

    recurring problems with plumbing; not quite as cosy and welcoming as suggested by other (very positive) reviews. Being there in the depths of winter (early Feb) may have contributed to this.
    Helpful staff, pleasant atmosphere

    Very nice, friendly hotel.

    Wasn't the easiest place to find but the location wasn't bad as it is near the underground. My room was very cold but that might have been down to my inability to work the air con unit. Plus I didn't ask them to fix my situation, as I am sure they would have.
    The staff were very nice, very friendly and helpful! The facilities were nice, bathroom and shower were good. Bed was very comfortable The breakfast was fine.

    - Bad smell in the rooms (I've tried to change a room but the other one smelled bad too) - cockroaches in the rooms! - rooms are next to the reception and hall/public space so you hear everything that happens in the hotel - no windows! I mean - there are some windows but to the corridor, not the outside. - breakfast is quite poor
    The staff speaks very good English, which is very rare in Beijing (even in 5* hotels)

    Very helpful and friendly staff, and not too far from the sites via public transport

    Very accommodating, especially with my very late arrival in to Beijing! Easy access to most sites on the Subway.

    Staff were extremely friendly and helpful with a good command of English. They arranged a day trip to the Great Wall at short notice. The property is traditionally decorated, clean, and really comfortable.

    Good location, it's easy to reach the hotel with public transportation, the hotel is not very far from the subway (Jishuitan) and also not far from the public bus n°877 (Deshengmen station) going to badaling (great wall) for 12 RMB. Very nice staff, clean room, nice decoration and good breakfast (western and chinese).

    A Touch of Old Beijing

    Nothing really to dislike, if you are happy to embrace the olde worlde!
    Accomodation was excellent for our group of 6 including 3 teenagers. Staff were very helpful, breakfast good value. Plenty of eating places within walking distance. Bedrooms quite large, with couch and desk. The central part of the hotel although small was great for reading , coffee etc.

    At home in Beijing

    Nothing. Just a warning that breakfast is a little idiosyncratic and slow to appear
    Quirky, characterful and charming. A great place to stay if you want to find the real Beijing and not be coccooned in the sterility of an international hotel. Very few cons and many pros.
