    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.

    ... was not quite what arrived, we had visions of three neat, almost bite sized portions, not here, they were huge dumplings, three filled a whole dinner plate and they were filled with all sorts of lovely things. We tried the pork and mushroom, filled with minced pork and shitake mushrooms, the spicy lamb, some sort of green vegetable and this was all served with a small dish of rice porridge. We couldn’t move afterwards and went back for more a few days later.

    Today we visited Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. We also had the chance to witness how the locals live. We had lunch in a local's home. I am glad to say we did. The food was delicious! So good! And on the other hand we got to see the "bad" part of ...

There was a lot of questions from them as to how do you say this or that, but I answered as best as I could… I’m not sure what the term is when a fabric is partly wool and partly artificial fabric, but they were happy enough to just chat to us. I found it very interesting that quite a few of them asked me to talk in my local dialect, as they wanted to hear ...

In the end we couldn't find anything we couldn't live without. The Orange jade was stunning. Considering we saw plenty of Jade all over ...

    I walked around for a bit, and ended up running into a fellow American who was living in the old university dormitories. His name was Mike, and he had been living in Beijing for 10 years. He answered some of my questions about the area he was living in, and then we traded contact info. We ended up making plans for dinner the following evening.
