Such a nice place to stay in Beijing. Really charming, very nice and helpful staff. We had a really good time. Very quiet, we slept so well, quite amazing in noisy Beijing. Difficult to compare with an international hotel, it is more like a nice bed and breakfast, cosy and charming.

If you're looking for a nice, clean, Beijing courtyard living experience, Cong's is a nice choice. Keep in mind this is in a beijing traditional Hutong, so if you're the hotel type and like a nice shiney enterance, this isn't for you. The hutong itself is ok. It's close to some activity, but not nearly as modern and lively as... More

We spent a wonderful week with friends in Beijing in April at Cong's Hutong. Stepping into the secluded courtyard was an oasis after our 24-hour journey from the eastern US and drinks at the little table were just what the doctor ordered. Cong's Hutong is a 4-room courtyard B&B off of one of the ancient hutongs (alleys) in central Beijing.... More

This hotel is only a few rooms around the family courtyard. I appreciated the chance to experience a genuine old hutong neighbourghood, and the traditional type of house. But be warned, the walls are paper thin, the drains inadequate (this means toilet paper must be binned, not flushed), and the thick Beijing dust penetrates everywhere. Our room was quite spacious,...

We stayed in this lovely courtyard hotel after staying in another courtyard hotel located 5 minutes away. The minute that we stepped into this hotel, i felt that it was different from the other courtyard hotel which we stayed at. The other courtyard hotel was quite lovely but seems more like a hotel, while Cong's Hutong was a very intimate... More

This place is a hidden jewel. I am glad I made the right choice. I booked two rooms. Both room were nicely decorated and clean. The staff were very accommodating and nice. Prior to booking, I email them questions, the owner responded quickly. The location is excellent. Close to metro and shops AND the location is so secluded, you will... More

We spent 5 nights at Cong's after reading reviews in Tripadvisor. Although it is quite a bit more expensive then the norm, its charm and location do compensate for the difference. It is well anointed and maintained by May who is the charming and graceful owner of the hotel. It is a peaceful and quiet refuge from the hustle and... More

Stayed 2 nights here recently and it was more authentic than a chain hotel which can sometimes be faceless. May was brilliant from before we booked till we left helping us with translations for our onward travel plans and advice. This place has been refurbished in true style but with modern touches, everything was very clean and comfortable and the... More

We spent 6 nights here while visiting my son during his semester in Beijing. Our choice to stay here was the best decision of our trip. I can't imagine a better location for seeing all the major sights or getting a sense of what it's like to live in Beijing. I also can't imagine a more charming place to stay.... More
