Expert Review

Tucked away in a 19th-century imperial compound, this small hotel occupies five quiet courtyards in an old Beijing hutong district. The traditional white-washed architecture, upturned gray slate roofs, latticed wooden doorways and Ming dynasty furnishings are embellished with Chinese lanterns and uncluttered room layouts. The resulting atmosphere is and feels like you’ve stepped centuries back in time. The 57 rooms, dressed with striking darkwood Chinese furnishings, are comfortable though not luxurious; modern amenities include broadband Internet and cable TV. The restaurant specializes in Peking duck, a local favorite; in addition, there’s a popular tea room serving a large menu of Chinese infusions. Evening cultural performances are held in the courtyard.
