TravelPod Member ReviewsBeijing 161 Lama Temple Courtyard Hotel
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!

Inside each of the buildings, there were always large statues of some prominent religious figure, sometimes Buddha. The most notable was the "Pavilion of Ten Thousand Happinesses", which contained an 85-foot tall statue of the Maitreya Buddha carved from a single sandalwood tree. It’s actually in the Guinness Book of Records, according to a plaque attached to a pillar.

... Orchestra. Interestingly, I just learned that about 40 members of the Mongolian Symphony Orchestra will be joining the SSO for this special concert. So, I’ll be excited to get to Jinan and get started.
Finally, as is always the case when I leave town, everything has completely fallen apart on Duncan Street. A couple of days ago I got a call from the police to say that our alarm was going off. Teah was in NYC, and I was further ...
