The space

Nice and cozy private bed room in a small 2-rooms apt right in the quiet lovely Hutong area; unlike most of the Hutong house it's an apartment with washroom and 24h hot water; kitchen is access for you to cook or you would be invited to enjoy my favorite sichuan food together if i'll have time to cook during your stay. Super convenient access to the heart of Beijing; 5min to closest bus station and subway station on line 5; 5-10min walk to one of the best live house Yu Gong Yi Shan; 10-15min walk to the popular food street (gui jie), Gulou(drum tower) east, Lama temple, where many nice Cafe, restaurants, bars are; 20min ride or subway to Forbidden City (gu gong) and Tian'an Men square; 10-20min walk or bus to Sanlitun bar street and 30min to Guomao area where CCTV tower and world trade center are. Very convenient to Dongzhimen transportation center to travel to/from capital airport and countryside of Beijing. Feel free to use the bicycle to ride around the Hutongs and explore much more interesting places! Very safe and nice neighborhood; Very convenient with all public transportations and to the center of Beijing city with the best places and food around.
It would be very unique experience for you to stay in a Hutong apt and explore a whole new world of beijing and China!

This is my second time visit to Beijing and xiaoxiao's place. I had a wonderful time as if I'm living in Beijing for a while by xiaoxiao's wonderful heartwarming guides and help! Her place is very cozy to get relaxed and take a rest after a long day. Conveniently located to explore the city, local shops and restaurants, tourists destinations, and feel cool vibes of rapidly developing big city. Walking distance to Lama Temple, Nanluoguxiang, Drum tower. Subway station and bus stops are a few minutes walk. Highly recommend her place to those who want to feel real Beijing life. Super special thanks to the great host, Xiaoxiao!!!!! Thank you so much having me again.

I had an excellent time staying at Xiaoxiao's place. Her place is snugged in a quiet Hutong at the heart of Beijing. With the closest underground station at 5 minutes' walk away, the location of the XiaoHouse cannot be better. Xiaoxiao has her place so beautifully decorated, that when I first entered the house, I thought I was in a cozy café. I really appreciated all the little chats with Xiaoxiao, her well-curated collection of books (though I only had time to flip through a few), and her buying me traditional breakfast, which I missed dearly when I was abroad. Final verdict: if you want to experience the authentic Hutong life and enjoy an inexpensive but cozy stay in a city famous for its ridiculously expensive real estate properties (i.e. Beijing), do not hesitate to book XiaoHouse!

Xiaoxiao is probably the most welcoming host I couldve asked for. She gave me quite some advice and suggestions in the area. The Hutong house is very cozy. It is conveniently located near metro stations. I enjoyed the stay very much.

Xiaoxiao was a great host! I truly enjoyed having the chance to chat with her about China in general and specifically about her neighborhood as we shared a traditional Chinese breakfast. If you're lucky, you'll be able to try her homemade pickles! Staying with her definitely was the highlight of my trip. The apartment was exactly as in the photos and the room had plenty of space. This definitely is the place to stay if you are looking for an authentic experience in a hutong neighborhood, and it is much more interesting than spending the night in a standard hotel room.

I had a wonderful stay at Xiaoxiao's lovely cozy apt. She is super nice and friendly. I truly recommend this place to people who want to experience the real local life in Beijing. The apt location is perfect for you to have an new adventure among secret Hutongs : taste authentic Beijing food, meet local people, find unique coffee place, bars or even integrated shops. Believe me, you're gonna love Beijing :)

Convenient location, real hutong experience, absolutely wonderful host. Xiaoxiao is a generous, fun, and sweet gal! She and I spent a lot time chatting together. I did not expect to make such a friend during my business trip to Beijing. I used to live in Beijing for a few years and now I got to know the city better with the lens of Xiaoxiao. 非常棒的胡同本地体验,体贴智慧好客的host,来北京不能错过哦!

I would like to give Xiao Xiao an 8-star rating but sadly there are only 5 so... Do you want to experience Beijinger's unique way of living? Do you wish to stay in the center of Beijing, where all that draws you to Beijing is at walking distance? Are you anxious abut traveling in a foreign land, hoping to receive some local guidance? Does your expectation for a host contain some element of friendship? If your answer is Yes to any of the questions above, the Xiao House will be your first choice. Period. 3
