“Can you keep a secret?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We feel we do not want to review the Courtyard 7, as if we tell other travellers how amazing our stay was, the next time we visit there will be no rooms available.
We began our 5 week journey with 4 night's at Courtyard 7. From our 12.30am pickup at Beijing airport till the moment we checked out we were made to feel like friends or family rather than customers.
The attention to detail both in the ambience of the property and selection and training of the staff make a stay at Courtyard 7 very memorable.

I had high hopes for this place and was disappointed.

This place was the final hotel of four places we stayed in in China.

Visually the place is lovely and very historic as located in a hutong in an old part of China. But for the price this is the only thing you are paying for and the location in a part of Beijng that reminds me of Camden town in London. Full of mostly teenagers. Great for some but not what we had expected.

The rooms were clean and nice. Decorated in old style furniture. If you are tall good luck with the beds as they are restricted in size.

The breakfast was ok. Very basic and we had expected more , fruit and fried rice. To me the place reminds me of an expensive hostel.

If the price of the accommodation was cheaper then fair enough but it was expensive.

All in all great place if you like history but if you want value for money I cannot stay it was worth it.

Staff were very friendly and nice.

Dear Guests,
First of all, thank you very much for making comments for our hotel. We are sorry that you think our hotel is not good for value. As you know now it is the peak season for tourist,and our hotel only has 19 rooms. The supply falls behind the demand.We have no choice but to raise the price a little bit than the off season. But we are always learning and improving ourselves. We will try our best to make our facilities and our service meet with the price. We welcome you to come back to our hotel again and we are sure we will provide better service for you then!

As coming from Belgium, we had a 6 hour difference. As the hotel is in the middle of a very touristic Hutong street, it is enjoyable to go out after dinner and look at the little shops or just sit outside and see the other, mostly Chinese tourists.
The beds of the hotel are short, about 1m80 long but almost 2 m wide. If you are tall, you can fit in it diagonal. There is no safe in the room, but not really necessary in that place. Western dinner is very expensive and not so good. I would prefer or eating Chinese food here or elsewhere. Breakfast is good.
The typical hutong building and perfect location makes up everything you should found less in this hotel

Loved this hotel. The room was great, very authentic feeling. The staff were very nice and helpful. the hotel restaurant is very good. Its great to be located in an interesting historic area. so good to not be staying in a big, impersonal hotel with hundreds of rooms. If I go back to Beijing I wouldn't stay anywhere else but here

This is an authentic Hutong courtyard with modern amenities and outstanding staff.
This was our one last stop in Beijing before flying back home. We had plans for last minute shopping on Lougu st and dining somewhere on HouHai lake. Unfortunately our flight was delayed - first indefinitely, then at the end - by 8 hrs. I was communicated with hotel back and forth from the airport constantly as we booked transfer with them. They were extremely supportive. First Gyan Gao , then Lee... When we finally got there at 11:30PM, they were waiting for us, gave us free upgrade to a larger room which was a delight.
We run to do our shopping - Tea store right around the corner was still open and a lovely English speaking girl who we met 2 weeks prior - stayed with us well past midnight...
Although we obviously did not make it to the Lakes for dinner - we just sat in our courtyard for awhile looking at the stars... Night was quiet and peaceful... We felt we were sleeping in a fortress...
In the morning we were awoken by birds singing...This all is in the middle of a bustling local life, right in the middle of Beijing...
We also had a lovely morning stroll through Hutong as well...
Breakfast was very good - fresh eggs among other things - they will do them for you whichever way you want... etc...
When the time came to leave, Nancy who was at the reception desk made sure we have a taxi cab and the driver instructed on where exactly to take us. She even insisted on carrying our suitcase to the car to which we strongly objected (she is a petite girl) but she was adamant...
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is seeking an authentic Chinese experience - wonderful hotel, wonderful area...

Located in a very "touristic" district of Beijing, you walk into Courtyar & hotel and somehow all the madness that is the Dongcheng District disappears. Here you will find tranquil seating areas to read, relax and unwind. My husband and I love it! The only downside is the breakfast is rather limited, but the rooms are comfortable and very clean. Staff is helpful. Avoid excess charges by booking tours yourself as the hotel doubles the price of everything. Their fee for making the bookings for you.

This place is a real gem. It looks like nothing from the outside, but then you step into the place and walk through the many courtyards to your room and it takes your breath away. very traditional looking however the rooms are extremely modern with amazing fitted out bathrooms, aircon, tv and everything you could want. The staff were friendly and helpfull.
It is a very hard place to find, we even had the address in Chinese but the taxi driver had know idea where to drop us (he wasn't the most sane taxi driver mind you).
The location is spot on. The surrounding hutong area is amazing with plenty of shops, bars and eateries.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
