      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.

      ... major tourist attractions to shame! Tickets in hand we proceeded with the vast crowds in the direction of the Meridian Gate, where we collected our snazzy audio guide (with LED map guide on the front tracking your every move) and entered the city. The first thing you see, other than thousands of people, is the massive Gate of Supreme Harmony. There are three main buildings in the central complex, the Hall of Supreme Harmony, the Hall of Middle Harmony and the Hall ...

      ... pit stop before the day ended. The inside of the Bird's Nest closed at 6:00 PM and as it came into our sites, 6 PM was approaching, we could see it from the freeway but knew there would be no way for us to make it in time; so close but far away. There was hope we would be able to get into the Water Cube, but when we arrived at the front door it too was also closed. A little sad we did not make it to tour the ...

      ... sat down to a machine that looks just like the one they use at Lens Crafters. There was no need to turn off the lights, tell an ophthalmologist which picture looked clearer 100 times, or switch a million lenses in front of my eyeballs.

      The test took no more than one minute and then she opened a suitcase full of sample lenses. She popped two into a dummy pair of frames and asked me to try them on. Perfection. They'd be ready in an hour. Oh, a $400+ ...

      From here we could see Prospect Hill to the north (it was built from the moat to conform to ancient Chinese feng shui (based on Taoist principles) of living by a hill (heaven) and water/lake/river- this was why the Qin Emperor sited his famous tomb where it is).

      We didn't time our arrival at Beijing very well as we had to navigate the DTR at rush hour. Not easy when the handles on your suitcase fell off on the drive at home! But we did the Chinese thing and refused to queue or be polite - it was the only way to get on. We hired motor rickshaw and had to lug 45kg of luggage onto the top- ...
