Expert Review

Owned by American filmmaker, author and entrepreneur Laurence J. Brahm, this slightly offbeat private hotel combines modern comfort with a trip through China’s recent history. Occupying a renovated courtyard home in a traditional hutong neighborhood, the hotel has five funky rooms, each with a unique historic theme. Most popular is the Chairman’s Suite, decorated with Mao-era furniture, artwork, and memorabilia. All rooms also feature hi-tech accoutrements like cable TV, electronic safe, and broadband Internet. The hotel also arranges personalized Beijing tours, including a nighttime drive around the capital in a Chinese limo, replete with champagne and caviar. The spa features traditional Chinese five elements massage, incorporating earth, wood, fire, metal, and water.
