... This is the restaurant with the Fire Water and once again EJ tried the Fire Water on a dare from Kristin. No other families had ever heard of it and were not brave enough (we will call it brave for now) to try it. Ironically, every family on the tour in 2005 tried Fire Water.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHuguosi Hotel Beijing
Very good hotel, one chosen by Chinese people (I am the only foreigner, but they speak English all right) heating is working fine (fortunately, outside it is -10 degrees celsius at night!), bathroom is ok, hot water available on all time. Located very close to busy hutongs with lots of restaurants and in the XiCheng district, so close to the Forbidden City, the Beihai Park, Xi Hai and Hou Hai lakes. I would recommend this hotel!
