The room was clean and equipped with a TV and also some snacks available again... More

We booked this hotel because we wanted to be in the Hutong area, near a subway, and at a reasonable price. We did not want a western type hotel.This hotel was just what we expected. The rooms were small but nicely furnished. We had everything we wanted. Everything was clean. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and spoke good... More

Getting there - Take the Airport Express Train to Dongzihimen Station 25yuan per person (easy). Then take the subway (line 2 circle line, Dark blue) to Anzhen Men subway station 2yuan per person (Youtube gives a good description of how to use the subway). Leave the subway by exit A and turn right. Head south towards the centre of Beijing... More

We were lured in by the pretty pictures and booked a luxury suite for our 1st wedding anniversary. On the booking for we explained it was for our anniversary and we hoped for a nice room. Instead when we arrived in Beijing we were taken to an over-priced, dirty hostel and told that the Imperial Courtyard was fully booked (despite... More

You dont have too go far on a night time for some lovely food and a bustling atmosphere in the area. The subway is less than ten minutes on foot. Some of the staff could be more friendly......thats the only downside.

Great hutong courtyard hotel. If you are happy to be staying in a real Chinese neighbourhood, with real Chinese interactions, and real Chinese local food then this is the place for you. If you want English food, English speaking, English service standards and English interactions then don't stay here. For us a great place, staff friendly and helpful, especially Zoe... More

Stayed for 5 nights in total. Private bathroom and air-con in room (although slightly noisy and not the most effective) it did the job. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is safe,clean and tidy. The complimentary breakfast was ample to set you up for the day and the free Wi-Fi is very useful indeed. If you... More

Stayed for 6 nights in May 2013. Hotel easy to find, in nice surroundings. Loved to walk around the Hutong at night. There is plenty of restaurants and shops (some shops open until 1-2 am) Hotel itself was OK, I was not expecting Four Seasons for paying under €200 for 6 nights. But in my opinion rooms need to be...
