    Falsely advertised.. Room is not what is shown online. Bathrooms rotten/broken! Only 20 mins of hot water a day in the shower. Minimal loo roll supply (we bought our own and toilet cleaner). Horrible sheets, mould on the ceiling and walls, really old heater to heat the room, old tv with terrible reception. They tried to say we had taken slippers when we left so that they could keep our deposit, we had to wait in reception for ages before they gave this back! Would never go near this place again.

    Beijing Hutong Culture Inn really is in the depth of the Hutongs and for people new to Beijing it would be near impossible to find. We had the help of a map on a smart phone but even then we got lost. I would suggest keeping their phone number handy in case you get lost or getting a rickshaw to take you. I think you may even be able to order this service if you ring the Hotel.

    The customer service is very good and there is a very sweet bar upstairs where you can sit, enjoy drinks and food and overlook the rooftops. You also get a free beer voucher when you check in.

    Our room was nice, large and clean but the door of the bathroom was clear glass. The toilet was in front of this door and you could see it from our bed. I love my partner but it's not very nice to wake up to see him doing his business. Make sure you are very comfortable with whoever you stay with.

    Anyway that was the only real problem. The tours are expensive but as you cans see in my blog, it's easy to arrange these yourself with a bit of extra effort.

    There is no laundry service. Only dry cleaning which is very expensive.

    Overall I rate this place highly. It's in a fanatic location especially if you interested in how the people in China live. It's also near some great tourist spots.

    ... the business district where The Conrad is, as well as the famous Peking duck restaurant called Dadong. We were late, but when we finally arrived, the whole crew was still waiting. We proceeded to dine on Peking duck in the city of Peking. It was amazing, even better than Xindalu back in Shanghai. This time we only ordered two ducks, and supplemented the meal with a king crab dish, various sides, and many Tsing Taos. I learned that when you toast in China around a Lazy Susan, ...

    Today, I got up and just lay in my bed. Despite having my written Chinese final today, I could not care less. At that moment, it was either I knew it or I did not. After listening to Ellie Goulding, I finally got my butt up.

    I got ready and relaxed for a bit more. Anthony finally woke up. He always sleep much later than me, since he tends to stay up very late. Anthony invited me to get breakfast with him. I said yes.

    ... during the Han era. In the Qing period, carvers, were producing a variety of decorative pieces including intricate jade animals. At the factory there were some beautiful pieces, and when looking at the jewellery we were encouraged to look at the jadeite more so than the jade because it was stronger. To the Chinese it symbolizes longevity and purity, and is worn to ward off disease.

    We decided to start out sightseeing with the Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City. They both impressed me with their grand scale, but I don't think I would have enjoyed them as much without appreciating all the history witnessed there. I'd stupidly headed out in shorts and a t-shirt, ...
