Hotel as described, good location from the subway and then you can go explore Beijing as you please (subways so cheap if you have never been to Beijing before) half hour by train from the airport as well. Rooms were very clean and set in traditional Huton buildings, modified for the hotel but worth looking around the backstreets to see... More

First of all, looking at the pictures, it seems to me that some people did confuse this hostel with another one. The one I am rating is the one in Beixin Hutong, close to the TouchWoman Cafe. The hotel does not have a backpacker vibe, nor does it have a good standard. It is mainly used by chinese tourists. While... More

The people running this place make it, for me, a 5/5 place to stay. They've been more helpful than I would've hoped for. Booking us a last minute great wall tour, last minute train tickets to shanghai, and helping us out with a counterfeit money issue. It feels like they really care about helping us out. The rooms are small,... More

This hostel we found would probably suit Chinese nationals more than the foreign backpacker hoping for a socialable environment to meet other travellers and glean travel advice. If you are hoping for reception support you might be unlucky, as we were. The bedrooms (we moved once, in the hope we were simply unlucky) were windowless, stank of stale cigarettes, had... More

This is the hotel we stayed at to meet visitors from the USA. Very convenient to subway, airport transfers, and attractions. We had a wonderful stay and we would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a nice, clean hotel in Beijing.

I stayed five nights at The Classic Courtyard in April 2014, and I am very happy that I found this small hotel. The receptionist staff speak English adequately, and they go beyond ordinary duty in making guests feel at home there. The overall atmosphere is like living in your own hutong home in old Beijing. The facilities are adequate and... More

This hotel was a welcome relief after a ghastly first night in Beijing. Friendly and informed staff ready to help. Relaxing red couches in the foyer. Food available and excellent fresh coffee. Always a personal touch.

This hotel has 3 different names – for some reason. Located in a hutong (alley). But fairly easy to find. Rooms are very small. I stayed in two different ones. The first was not so great, and faced the lobby. The other was around the courtyard in the back, better. Rooms don't really have windows, so they are very stuffy... More

Stayed 2 nights and that was long enough. My room was really dirty, black mold, clogged shower drain with previous occupants hair, dust thick enough to write your name in. Very small room, nowhere for suit cases. I had a drag on bag which spent the 2 nights on the bed as there was nowhere else to put it. It... More
