Wonderful !!!! The location is perfect for a weekend visit, but also comfortable (real kitchen, etc.) and quiet enough to stay longer. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Beijing. I chose it because I wanted to stay in a hutong (traditional Beijing housing style), but the cl…

Lillian has a very nice Hutong home in a great part of Beijing. She was super accommodating and was great at communicating the particulars of this unique place. I would definitely recommend a stay if you interested in the Hutong experience with many shops and restaurants nearby!

I'm Chinese American and have been in Beijing since 2009. I've lived in many countries and think being in a comfy home beats a hotel. I'm a writer and professional cook so having a meal or two at home from the local market always makes a visit more special. I have scoured this ci…
