    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 managed to get out from the crowds and away from all the people asking if you wanted a rickshaw trip (which is a little bike thing!).

    Prospect Hill was a great climb to the top, winding through the trees and plants, all of a sudden we where stood at the top looking over Beijing. From the bottom and walking through the Forbidden City the sky was clear blue, however, from the top it was different. It was more smoggy ...

    ... complex at the hotel where we experimented with archery. My arrows were shot everywhere but the target, or even the device holding the target. Quite a few of mine did, though, hit the back wall behind the targets, which I think just shows that I'm just too strong for archery.
    There was a kind of carnival set up too, in what looked like a warehouse in this entertainment complex. It was a little creepy, because we were the only ones there, so it looked ...

    ... I will greet them with a respectful hello or how are you all doing, or good day. And suddenly the questions open up. I eventually stumbled upon a park..not really sure where I am, but if I checked my turns right, I was confident I would end up back at the hotel. Anyways. Just see the pictures I took. These parks are all over. The little old people are SO cute. It's awesome. I sat on a bench, only to initiate conversation with several more people, and eventually a ...

    ... the market so we went across the road to have McDonalds. It did the job for all of us. We tried to head back to the silk market just before closing to really get some bargains, bit we were just a little too late and they wouldn't let is in. Richard said we should check out the financial area which was just around the corner. On the way down there we passed a really nice shopping mall, which had a massive screen which went the length of the shopping mall. It ...

    ... to think of it again. We were two walking zombies for the rest of the day particularly since we had trouble finding our hostel.

    After we had our sleep we had a look around the Tianemen square and the nearby. Central Beijing is really quite nice and most of the locals don't speak English so you're not bothered by too many touts, which is a relief. The square is a centre for promoting the government's regime and for advertising on the giant screen they have placed ...
