Excellent stay - the basement room was good value, the location perfect, near the Beihai park and the Houhai lake. The staff unbelievably helpful. The Chinese breakfasts were very filling. The hutong is very picturesque - not all are.
A must when in Beijing for pleasure! Great location in Beijing.
The snack/restaurant street Hugusi is very close. Not to far from a Forbidden city and Tiamen square (North West corner)

It was my 15th trip to Beijing and my best experience of staying in a huntong hotel.
Very friendly, peaceful, nice and well managed. My kids loved it and said that if one day they go to Beijing once again, this is the only hotel...More

We spent 3 nights at the Shichahai Sandalwood Boutique at the beginning of July.
The rooms were booked by a friend who chose the hotel so as we could have a traditional Chinese experience, we were not disappointed!
Located in the "hutongs" (alleyways) to the...More

Hi, yes I went on the Jinshanling day tour (less visited part of the wall). It was good day they gave us breakfast on the coach and there was a set meal lunch at a local 'farm' restaurant. You can also to the shorter Badaling Tour both can be booked at the hotel.
you could book a superior family room which has one double bed and one extra single bed. if the second kid doesn't want to share the double bed with the parents,, then another extra single bed could be added in the room.

Come out of Beihai Nth station onto the north side of the big main road (Di'an Men Xi Dajie) - turn right (ie walking west towards Pinganli station); carry on to the next main crossroad and turn right onto Desheng Men Nei Dajie; a short way up (70m?) on your right you will see a sign for Xinghua Hutong; it is a dark looking alleyway, like most of the hutongs but you will see ahead about 50m on the right are two red lanterns hanging outside - these mark the hotel entrance. When you get there, there are two big red doors and the hotel name is signed. Ring the bell and they come to open up. Once inside you will feel much relieved and find a little haven with pretty courtyard interior!
The first time I went it was ten at night and I was nervous walking there - I was glad I had my son with me. But once found and being more familiar with the way and surroundings I was quite happy going back late on my own. I never felt unsafe at all. So I expect you will also be the same on going there for the first time. Be assured you will be fine! If you were at all unsure I think someone would come out of the hotel entrance to greet you if you called - they were very nice though not great English .

"Book a suite - they are adjacent to the courtyard and are very spacious."
