      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.

      ... we realised, almost at the exact moment Helen handed her the DSLR camera, was way out of her depth in operating such heavy machinery. Indeed, she almost fell over at one point and then insisted on taking close up photos of us without any background of the wall in sight! Thank you, lady, that is exactly the photo we travelled all this way for: Helen and I inanely smiling at the camera with a few bricks behind us! When she laughed and said 'I'm sorry for being old ...

      ... cancelled today. So, I decided to do my Chinese homework and studied for my dictation tomorrow. Anthony was Skyping his girlfriend Katie. Then, Anthony shouted that Katie said that she spoke with Anthony's father about my blog. It shocked me that somebody's parent would read my blog. I would have thought that they would hate my horrible grammar or me ranting about pointless things.

      Few hours later, I had my evening class.

      Beijing first day

      Hey, so today was the first day in Beijing. We landed at 6 am and surprisingly I got quite a bit of sleep. The plane was only half full so I moved to a 3 seater after take off and spread myself out. For breakfast it was omelets, airlines get creative with their food huh. I had learnt from my several past experiences with the omelets, so I opted out of breakfast. We got to the hotel at 8. Check in wasn't until 12 so we went on a short walk to Jingshan Park ...

      ... and while the answer wasn’t clear the gist of it was ‘why not pray?’ This all might have been translation problems, because I know that when they use the English word ‘worship’ it does not have the same context that it does when you or I would say it, so it may be that their grasp of religious English words and my grasp of Chinese culture and language just aren’t allowing us to communicate our meanings properly.

      ... City and Tiananmen Square. The National Musuem and the Defense building were in the same area too. I have to say that when the Chinese build something, they build it big! Nice stuff but no english self guided audio tours were available so we just looked around. As a whole, I would say most Chinese people outside of the hotel are kind of rude. Some are scammers too, typical marketplace behavior. The shopping is amazing ...
