LüSongyuan (Lǔsōngyuán bīnguǎn) Review

The traditional wooden entrance to this delightful courtyard hotel, on the site of an old Mandarin's residence, is guarded by two menshi (stone lions)—this is a classic old-Beijing experience, turned over to tourism, with no attempts at modern updates or fancy design, but, rather, just a good choice for cheap, traditional living. The guest rooms are basis, the windows are large, there's plenty of dark wood and red pillars, and five courtyards offer delightful escapes in the forms of pavilions, rockeries, and greenery. It's all about location here: you're in the middle of an ancient neighborhood, within walking distance of Houhai, and just a block away from many restaurants on Nan Luogu Xiang.
