Lu Song Yuan Hotel
Multiple buildings surround a quadrangle in this courtyard-style Dongcheng neighborhood hotel, which is down an ancient alley, or hutong. Buildings dating from dynasties past—including Qing, Yuan, and Ming—are scattered around it. Noted for having the “most distinctive courtyard” by a local tourist association, this 58-room hotel also includes two suites. Rooms range from a basic Single to the Deluxe suite, which has a king-size bed. Traditional Chinese decorations set the tone, from red rugs and columns to lanterns and calligraphy books.
