We stayed here for five days and found it to be a great place to stay while exploring the historical sights of Beijing. The decor and the location within a traditional hutong was far more interesting than staying in a sterile chain hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way to provide directions and recommendations. We ate at several nearby restaurants they recommended and were really happy with the food (we particularly liked their recommendation for Peking duck). It was really convenient to the subway and we didn't have to ride too far to go to most of the things we wanted to see.
No place is perfect, though, and being a budget option, of course, Kelly's Courtyard has some negatives that could bother some. They weren't particularly problematic for us.
-Location is both a plus and a minus. Our taxi couldn't get us all the way to the hotel because the streets were too narrow. It could be easy to get lost on the way there. Print a good map!
-Breakfast is pretty basic, continental-style. Coffee or tea, juices, bread, yogurt, fruit, and some baked goods. There are inexpensive options nearby for more substantial breakfast, though.
-Walls are thin, and noise can be heard from outside, but it isn't a noisy area. If other guests happened to be noisy, it could be an issue.
-Their wifi is free, but it does occasionally go down and require some form of manual intervention on their part.
-Beds are pretty firm. This is probably standard in this part of Asia.
I would definitely stay here again if I came back to Beijing!
