“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in Oct/12 and were delighted with it. We had a superior room looking onto the courtyard. The food in the restaurant was very good and it was very quiet. Being husky lovers, we especially enjoyed the 2 resident ones. However, if you're not comfortable with them, they can be kept in an office.
It is located SE of the Drum and Bell Towers and about a mile north of the Forbidden City so it's easy to walk there. We had been to sites like it before so we enjoyed being able to walk to numerous other sites like the Confucian Temple and the Old Observatory. It's location definitely enhanced our enjoyment of Beijing. It is also near the subway which we didn't use and has easy access to the airport freeway.
The staff are friendly and have enough English to be helpful.

I stayed at Courtyard 7 for 4 nights with my husband. I really loved our stay here. The service was fantastic, the staff were very helpful and most spoke very good English which helped. They were able to organise various tours, drivers, etc if you wanted them however they were not pushy about you using their services.

The rooms were excellent with heated floors (very handy when you visit Beijing in the middle of winter!) and the rooms themselves were warm and clean. The bathrooms were spacious, there was good hot water and the wifi worked well. I really enjoyed the breakfast, which was included in the price, but didn't eat in the actual restaurant. The hotel is in an excellent location, right off a fun and interesting hutong, and is a short walk to a train station.

I loved this place and would recommend it to all people coming to Beijing. It has a lovely feel and was a real highlight of the time in the city.

Room Tip: We stayed in the most basic room but rooms closer to the reception area are bigger I believe. The ba...

Everything, from the heated room floors to the delicious breakfast was perfect at this hotel! Stayed with my daughter in December 2012 in room 11 and loved it! Excellent location, walk to everything and easy to cab! Felt like a haven at the end of hectic days! Service was a breeze! Would only stay here when I return to Beijing!

If you loves Chinese history especially the Hutong and likes courtyard style accommodation the. Courtyard 7 provide the best and it is the best hutong in Beijing which is the Nanlouguxian. The staff is very friendly and it felt like a home stay. During winter, the floor in the room is even heated up. However, it is a bit far from subway but that's why you need to navigate the hutong where it is so much fun.

I stayed at Courtyard 7 for 8 nights in late October. Previous reviews on Tripadvisor are, on the whole, accurate so I do not need to repeat them. Returning "home" after each day in busy, noisy Beijing was indeed a pleasure. Only a few steps from the exciting Nanluoguxiang Hutong, the hotel is so very quiet and secure. I was traveling alone and stayed in a standard room, number 23, at the rear of the hotel. This room was tiny even by my generous standards. However it suited me fine and was comfortable to stay in. It does boast its own private little courtyard which was a bonus. A couple or "larger' people will find this room cramped, with little room for luggage and moving around.
The location is great and it is about a 30 minute walk from a couple of tube stations. This may be a challenge for some in the winter. I suggest purchasing a YIKATONG bus/train pass. This is similar to a London Oyster Card and saves a lot of time at the busy stations. A card costs 20 Yuan (deposit) and is very easy to use. I put 50 Yuan on the card and after using it extensively for a week on both trains and buses, came away with 10 Yuan plus my 20 deposit. A cheap way to travel!
Overall, Courtyard 7 is quiet, in a great location and has friendly, helpful staff.

OK...finding the hotel was a challenge but worth the hunt! Great property, location, and staff. Great area to wander, shop, and eat among the locals. There is easy access via taxi, subway, and bus to see everything in and around Beijing. Now for the directions...have the taxi driver drop you off at the small T intersection at Goulau East Street and Nanluoguxiang Alley. Walk South on Nanluoguxiang and make a right onto Qiangulouyuan Lane (there is a Courtyard 7 sign in English) and the entrance is about 25 meters ahead on the right. Ask the hotel to write the taxi drop off spot in Mandarin for the taxi driver before you arrive at the Beijing airport.

My family of 4 stayed here from 30 Nov - 4 Dec.

We were unable to squeeze all four into a room and hence we booked two deluxe room. I booked the rooms via hotels.com which did seem to give a better rate than booking directly from Courtyard 7. We requested for the rooms to be next to each other and the hotel staff were very accomodative, and it was wonderful that we did have the 2 rooms within the main house. We loved that the place was traditional and yet the modern amenties were all readily available. The heated flooring was a really a much appreciated feature to have during winter. As we had chosen the deluxe room, we did not have any complaints about the size, it was a good size and the high ceiling did make it seemed more spacious. The only complaint we have about the room will be the lighting which were rather dim, and the placement of the lamp did make certain corner to be very dark.

Its' location is good as it is situated along a shopping street. We had no problems looking for food/snacks just outside the hotel. It was lovely and convenient for us to shop along the street when we returned every night after our day trip. However its' location to the nearest subway is a little distance away. To/from the nearest subway during winter is a challenge for us but fortunately we had drivers picking us during the first 2 days and hence it did cutdown our walking effort.

The staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly. Upon checking-in, they provided us a local map which was very useful to us.

The breakfast was only do-able. After a few days, you might find it a little boring. However, it did fill our stomach to start-off our day. If not, finding food around in Beijing should not be an issue at all.

We had a wonderful experience here.
