    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.

    Two very sleep deprived girls arrived in Beijing at 3.30pm, having discovered we are incapable of sleeping in an airplane chair. Nevertheless, we were very excited and in awe of the size of Beijing airport (the world's second largest airport, followed by London Heathrow in third place). We managed to navigate the airport transfer train and metro system to the hostel without any issues (until we blindly ...

    ... we decided to shop around. We saw a fruit stand with yummy dry fruit. Stephanie was able to negotiate with the vendor to give us half a kilo for fifteen yuan. I got cherry, pineapple, and orange in my bag.

    We got back on the bus to deal with rush hour. During the bus ride, I fell asleep and almost fell on top of Olivia. She smacked my shoulder to wake me up and tell me.

    It took two hours to get back to campus.

    ... are leaving early tomorrow so we all ventured out for a dinner including Peking Duck. With 8 of us we could order many dishes and had a great time. Kaela made quick friends with two sisters and before long she had the whole table laughing. There were also some very funny stories from the sightseeing activities of the day and eventually fake mustache/glasses were brought out. This was another memorable meal.

    ... 2 in the morning there, and people would come.

    The concert was great. The Beijing Wind Orchestra is a professional group. Rehearsals are daily 9:30-12:30. Zhonghui conducted everything but the trumpet concerto he played on! It was the Zhonghui show, and he was great.

    After the concert, there was a lunch upstairs that I was invited to. Zhonghui's brother-in-law and his family hosted me. They lived in the US ...

    ... but they didn't come back with Denise,
    they came back with another white foreigner who spoke both English
    and Chinese and explained about the contacts. They hadn't come
    across contacts before and there was much peering in my eyes and
    discussion.




    I spent a lot of time wandering around the exhibits and in the
    House of the Concubines, I had some trouble with two Chinese men.
    They kept crowding me and at first I thought they ...
