This is a well-liked place for frequent visitors of Beijing. It is truly a home away from home for those seeking a nostalgic experience. The place has just gotten sweeter (or shall I say hotter;)) as the owner recently opened a Chungking (Chongqing) style noodle place near the Andingmen metro station that is 5-10 minutes away by walking. This hole-in-a-place... More

I booked thru booking.com without downpayment and with cancelation time up to two days prior to the check in date.but still they mr jerry (owner) help us with our train ticket booking... More

We stayed here for a week in September, and overall I'm pretty happy with our choice. The room was OK with well functioning air con, good shower (though the bathroom could do with a thorough scrub) and very comfortable bed. Also the Wifi worked great. The free laundry is absolutely great and very handy if staying for a longer time.... More

So its a bit tricky to find, you need to arm yourself with maps to show the taxi driver etc but once you get settled in you'll realise that the place is humble & honest. The guys welcome you like family and do a great job, wash your clothes and have a few beers and breakfast supplies on call just... More

My hubby and I reached Courtyard View Hotel at almost 2am in the morning in May 2012, but the friendly person in charged was waiting for us (we did inform before hand on the odd timing). The room we stayed was relatively small but tidy and clean. We woke up in the morning with simple breakfast including toast, jam, eggs... More

Old Beijing is rapidly vanishing. Fortunately, the area around the Drum Tower has been preserved with old "hutong" labyrinths and traditional 1-2 storied houses with inner courtyards. The Courtyard View Hotel is located in a quiet, yet safe and convenient section from the busy Old Drum Tower Road. You are literally minutes for the famous South Luogu Street, a historical... More
