This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Templeside is a great place to stay in Bejing. It is within walking distance from the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and Beihai (lake) Park. The female staff member, who was there at the time of my stay could speak English (and a little French) as well as Mandarin and Cantonese. She was very kind and helpful.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Firstly, a warning about getting to this place from the airport. There are a number of crooked taxi drivers who charge about £60 to tourists for the journey, producing either an official-looking set price list, or using a rigged meter. In our case the driver used both. Luckily the accommodation management had already tipped us off that the price was a fifth of this, and we stood our ground.

"Hutong" refers to the street, not the building (which is a siheyuan). The narrow alleys of old Peking with their one-storey courtyard dwellings and distinctive oriental roofs have mostly been bulldozed (along with most of the rest of old China) in favour of American-style anonymous cityscapes. This is one of the survivors, at the edge of a group of streets where people make things and pick over rubbish, friendly old folk sit out and talk, and life has probably not changed much in the past century. The accommodation itself, while fairly basic, has something of a charm about it, and the managers, "Bobby" and "Emma", have done a lot to maintain this, with decorations of lanterns and masks. There is even a rooftop place to sit out, though accessed by rather fragile stairs, and perhaps not salubrious enough in the Beijing pollution for more than a beer (on reasonably priced sale from the reception).

You can get a takeaway from the local restaurant, which has a classically hilarious Chinglish menu and offers among other delicacies stir-fried donkey and bullfrog. We had Chairman Mao's favourite pork dish (a bit fatty for Western tastes) and the beef, which was excellent. Portions are huge. For breakfast we were impressed by the local dumpling place. There is a good fruit shop on the other side of the main road.

Emma's English is excellent, and she advised us well on tours - the Wall at Mu Tien Yu was one of the highlights of our trip.

There is a more luxurious version of the accommodation nearby, but that was beyond our modest budget. This place has character and a little bit of magic in its oasis location in the characterless modern suburbs; it comes with our recommendation.

Why take a tour of a hutong when you can stay in one?-this guesthouse is in good spot, the staff bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable,they speak pretty good english and the rooms are warm clean and comfortable. Free internet and they can arrange stuff if you want or will help you to do your own thing too. cheap Tsingtaos don't hurt either. we loved it here.
