Very cute, traditional chinese style hotel. If you are looking for something basic, this is the perfect place. Close to the subways, and the city center. The staff is friendly and helpful, and speak english quite well. The area is safe, with the police station at the end of the road. The only downside could be the restaurant across the street is noisy at night (however I never found it to be a problem). If you are sensitive to noise when trying to sleep, the back courtyard blocks most of the sound. This is a wonderful hotel, for a great price! Thanks to Bob and Jenny for everything!

... my second interesting shopping challenge of the trip. I've absolutely no idea what I have sprayed my knee with, but the experience of buying it was quite painless, and my knee was also painless much more quickly than I expected. Another language challenge is presented by taxis. Virtually no Beijing taxi drivers speak any English at all. You are completely dependent on having your destination written in Chinese, and if you are going out you guard your card with the ...
