3+1 Bedrooms Review
Modern, minimalist design—pure white interiors, freestanding bathtubs, individual courtyards—meets old Beijing at this intimate four-bedroom boutique hidden away within the quaint alleyways (hutong) near the historic Drum and Bell towers. This is the perfect refuge for the style-conscious visitor looking to escape the big city bustle. Or, indeed, those wanting to experience Beijing's increasingly forgotten traditional surroundings while having access to the benefits of contemporary technology, such as iPod stereos and in-room Wi-Fi. Guests get their own front door key so you'll soon feel like a local wandering home. The owner, Cho Chong Gee, also operates a quiet lounge-style bar two doors along, as well as an equally stylish restaurant nearby.
Live Like a Modern Emperor
There are few boutique hotels in China with just three rooms and a suite. Each space is custom tailored with a stylish blend of modern and ancient Chinese accents. Guests have their own front door key to feel like locals in a traditional hutong alley residence that gives a true Beijing experience. Each room has its own balcony-like courtyard, a rare reprieve from the bustle of the city. Set near the drum tower and north of the Forbidden City, the location allows for easy access to the best of Beijing while being centered in the best areas.
