Fodor's Review

Each of the four rooms at this boutique courtyard hotel—located in a carefully restored home in Dongsi Hutong—are decorated with antiques and according to different themes, such as the Chairman's Suite, in playful homage to Mao, and the two Author's Suites (one inspired by Edgar Snow, a 1930s US journalist who lived in Beijing, and the other by Han Suyin, the Japanese novelist who wrote Love is a Many-Splendored Thing, among others). There's also a cigar lounge

where you can sit on original furnishings used by China's early revolutionary leaders, as well as a wine bar housed in a Cultural Revolution–era bomb shelter. You'll know the hotel when you find it—Madame Mao's Red Flag limousine sits outside.
