My second stay at Michaels House in the last 2 months, it's location may not be quite as close to central Beijing as the Hutong Courtyard hotels but it has such a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere it's worth paying for a few short Taxi journeys to get to the must see tourist attracions in central Beijing. Staff are great, rooms... More

Stayed 5 days at Michael's and it was great. The room was big enough for us, good amenities and nice breakfast all of that for a bargain. Mostly it was the staff who did it for us. We didn't spoke a word of chinese so having english speaking staff was a must, they helped us so much with everything even... More

The staff at Micheal's house went above and beyond! They let leave our bags for 2 nights while we traveled via train to Xian, let us use the staff shower before we left and checked us in early with free upgrade when we returned from Xian (ready for a real bed and shower). Amy is amazing. She and I exchanged... More

My sister and I stayed for three nights in a standard room, that was bright and clean, with supremely comfortable beds. We were greeted warmly by two of the young, intelligent girls who act as hostesses. They all have good English skills, are eager to assist in any way necessary, and do so with care. We were "high maintenance" guests,... More

Michael's house wasn't only clean, beautiful, and comfortable, but had the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever experienced during my stay at a hotel. Upon our arrival we were welcomed warmly.

I stayed at Michael's for three nights with my 8 year old daughter. While the room was a little small, that is the only negative thing I have to say. The staff were wonderful and beyond my wildest expectations - warm and generous with my daughter. She really felt she was with friends. The lobby, which was an old refurbished... More

This little place just was not for us When we arrived we were put in the smallest room you could imagine with the breakfast bar and lounge right on the front door so we had to keep the door shut and curtains closed.

Michel's House has been a great surprise for us. It is quite difficult to try and do anything in a crowded city where very few people can understand you.

Like other courtyard hotels in Beijing, this one is located down a small alley (which may be a bit hard to find at first). The courtyard here has been covered with glass and converted into an atrium/ reception/lobby/sitting room/breakfast room, with AC in summer. The rooms are off the central atrium. They are very clean and air conditioned. The bed... More
