Had a great time at Kelly's Courtyard. The hutong is very quiet and not 'touristy'. We very very welcomed by the staff and the neighbors. Our kids even played with the local kids in the afternoon. Very traditional, but only a few minutes from the subway and large shopping areas.

We just got back from 3 nights at Kelly's Courtyard and it was such a wonderful experience! If you are looking for Western style lodging, this is not where you should stay. But if you want a clean and fun Chinese experience, this is the place!! It's really difficult to find, so be prepared to call Mark and ask him... More

The experience and delight is only enhanced by the journey and transition through the Hutong neighborhood... and upon entry into the establishment and the gracious and warm welcome - you really are impressed. The rooms are wonderful and the courtyard with the vegetation, pool/fountain and sitting areas is stunning. You will make no mistake... while this is in an authentic... More

My reservations about staying in a hutong were completely dispelled when I stayed here. For what you pay and the experience you gain it's priceless. From the welcome and helpfulness to the cleanliness, it's not so much would I stay here again, it's when am I going to. This is authentic Beijing. I could not give Kelly's 5 stars.

My wife's parents came to visit us in China and we wanted to give them a more authentic experience. Accommodation in the HuTong was therefore a logical choice. Tucked away, yet easily accessible by Subway, Kelly's courtyard is indeed a little gem. The rooms were cozy and comfortable and contained everything we needed. The inside courtyard was lovely and beautifully... More

Kelly's courtyard is on the east side, and the location is right off of two major subway stops, and right near Joy City Mall. It's pretty easy to get to major tourist sites, as well as the west side and downtown. Mark was super helpful and attentive, and the rooms are really great. Also, complimentary toast and tea/coffee in the... More

A very pleasant hotel, bed & breakfast only but some lovely places to eat within walking distance. Bedrooms built around the courtyard where your breakfast is laid out first thing in the morning. Don't be put off by the back street location, we were surprised how clean the area was and how friendly the locals were. Manager is very polite... More

I booked this accommodation last minute and didn't really know what to expect when I turned up. I was pleasantly surprised when the door to this place opened up to a quaint, small courtyard for a 'lobby' with an airy, traditional atmosphere. My room fronted onto the courtyard and was immaculately clean throughout. It was the dead of winter in... More

We booked at Kelly's Courtyard after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! We caught the metro from the railway station thanks to the helpful map and instructions sent by email. Had some difficultly finding the exact address in the dark down the alleys but we called the hotel and Mark the manager came out and found... More
