"Location: This hotel is not located at Backlake (Hou Hai). In fact, this is very misleading when I first arrived Beijing. The taxi driver had to call the hotel front desk to confirm. Apparently, the location of this hostel is in one of the lanes - which they called "Hu Tong". So do imagine, big cars may not be able to access through the Hu Tong easily. Amenities: I stay in single room which hotel provides most of all you need. They also have bedroom slipper if you need. This hotel provide basis services, WI-FI is in the entire courtyard and room. But speed is not stable, the signal keeps dropping. Restaurant: There is a bar and restaurant...most travelers staying in this hostel will hang out together in the evening. A ice cold beer and chit chat in the courtyard. "

"We stayed for a weekend. Location good for walking around hutong area of Hou Hai (Back Lakes) - area is touristy, but that's not a bad thing in Beijing! Hotel itself is small, full of character. Rooms small but have essentials. You get noise from courtyard - which is part of charm. Breakfast not v inspiring - but you can definitely find worse in Beijing!"

"Very large modern rooms, service is impeccable. Daily cleaning is very thorough. Also free airport pickup since we stayed over 4 nights, this is recommended if you have a lot of luggage since they have a permit to drive right up to the hotel in the Hutong. Breakfast is huge and pretty random (fried egg, bacon, bread, fish & chips, sausages, cheese, salad, charcuterie) Could not finish! We also booked a private transfer with them to the wall and then to the airport which was also great. Very posh vehicle and good price. Location is amazing, the street itself is fairly touristy (mostly domestic) but when you turn into the alley right next to the hotel it is a legit Hutong with great jianbing and breakfast foods. Thank you for a wonderful stay Beijing Travelotel!"

"This accommodation is in a good location. Not too far form the airport and you can walk to the lake near by. It's accessible on foot to a subway station. Staff were friendly and helpful, although it is easier if you can speak Mandarin or have someone who can with you. However, by the nature of how nice the staff were to me who can't speak Mandarin, I am sure if necessary they will try to help you somehow. This place was enough for a minimalist like me who traveled alone. "

"Green Tree Inn Beijing Olympic Village Hotel has a well-lighted spacious lobby and clean rooms with good amenities. We had a hard time communicating with the hotel staff since they can't understand English very well. Inspite of this language barrier, they were very courteous and really tried to communicate with us. They even gave a complimentary city map.The hotel is located far from the nearest bus stop or subway train stop. One time when we couldn't get a taxi, we had to walk a long way back to the hotel. But it's a good place to stay if you have a car. There was a very good food selection at the restaurant and the food was great tasting."

"Some said this hotel is hard to find, but I think was easy on foot and with map of the area. Street is quite small, so most taxis don't like to drive here and to get taxi, must walk to main street, but it is not too far. Staff was friendly. Hotel is quite small, looks nice. But rooms/bathrooms very small, and winter time cold, must have air con heating all time. Often also come bad smell from sewers. Also doors/windows are very thin so not much privacy in room, can hear everything what is going on at hotel. Hou Hai lakes, Luogu Alley and drum/bell towers very near. So shopping and eating is easy."

More about Back Lakes (Hou Hai)

The dominant feature in Beijing’s Hou Hai district is the Back Lakes (or Hou Hai). This area has been an important part of Beijing for centuries, but recent redevelopments have given it a slick cosmopolitan veneer. Today, China’s successful business tycoons come here to work and play, so there are as many impressive business towers here as trendy nightclubs and up-market restaurants.

One of the most important office districts near the Back Lakes is China Zhi Gong Dang building. Farther from the lakes but still in the district are CYTS Tower and Beijing Poly Plaza. The latter is a striking building that houses office and retail space along with a selection of the most sought-after business hotels in Hou Hai. Impossible to miss, this building is an example of the spirited architectural style that has emerged in Hou Hai in the past few years.

While the Back Lakes attract local professionals and business travelers, this entire district is also a magnet for expatriates and foreign tourists, who come for the mix of old-world sightseeing attractions and cutting-edge commercial scene. The lakes themselves are appealing, and they’ve played an important transportation role in Beijing since the 1200s. Another important site in the area is Beijing Confucius Temple.

The best place for tourists to stay is in the accommodation near the Back Lakes, while some of the most convenient are located halfway between the lakes and Andingmen Subway Station. The bars and restaurants around the lakes are open until late, and it’s possible to hire a paddle boat and go out on the water long after the sun has set. The club scene on the lakes receives a boost from the student population of nearby Beijing Normal University.
