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!

They told me that on days when the sky is visible (it’s pretty rare in Beijing will all of the pollution), many people go outside to take pictures to tweet. ...
... railway station, which is hellishly busy, and grab tickets and jump on the subway north. We stop off at the Olympic Park, home to the fairly iconic ‘Birds Nest’ stadium and ‘Water Cube’ aquatics centre amongst others. We expect the place to be quiet, but there are lots of tourists here – again, mostly Chinese, and as westerners we’re popular! We are stopped by one Chinese couple and thinking they want us to take a picture of them go ...
... was quite cheeky and wanted to keep the change as tip.
Afterwards we took again one of these moped things home, and Karlie wanted the driver’s phone number so that we could contact him if we needed to get somewhere. He misunderstood her though (she thought he was quite cute and he thought she wanted him to spend the night) which was quite awkward.
The rest of the evening we spend dinking a plum spirit and chatting. Quite relaxed and ...
