Liked: Friendly stuff. Near the centre. Early check in was no problem

Disliked: We had a room outside of the central building and it was a bit shabby most of all the bathroom. There was also no window in the room this gave ous a feeling like living in a cave. The biggest Problem was that everything was a bit wett including the bedding!! It is hard to find.

Liked: The staff was really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was great too. When we stayed there we met a lot of people, like business man, students, families, travellers... And we stayed hours chatting and drinking beer in the common areas. The location was good, there's a subway station 5 minutes walking.

Disliked: The only negative thing was the bathroom cleanleness, but it's not so bad.

Liked: LFH is set back in a lovely, quiet hutong and yet is but five minutes from the metro. It's also about a ten-minute walk from the Confucius and Lama Temples. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean, pleasant, and quiet. I loved that all I could hear in my room on the third floor was the wind in the trees.

Disliked: This isn't even a big complaint since it turned out not to be a problem, but if you have a private room with a shared bathroom, there is only one shower, and it's on the second floor. I was told there are bathrooms on the second floor, as well, but I never found them and had to use the one on the first floor instead, which is great for some extra exercise!

Liked: The staff was very friendly and even led us to the hospital cause our son had a conjunctivitis. The location was very good, in the hutong area, 5 minutes from the next subway station and lots of restaurants around. Also very close to the Forbidden City and other monuments. Free breakfast from 7 to 9 am and free tea and coffee all day were very appreciated.
