“Ideal accomadation for travellers”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

The Classic Courtyard is set back from the main Yonghegong Street (lots of shops, restaurants etc.), down Beixin Hutong (small alleyway, common in China). The Lama Temple & subway are a two minute walk.
This was my 1st time in China & I stayed here for the 1st ten days of my trip & was completely satisfied, made to feel wecome, comfortable & at home.
The staff are very friendly, english speaking, helpful & happy. The rooms are very nice, traditionally decorated, clean, air-conditioned, tv, free wi-fi, hot shower, tooth brushes & slippers! The hotel offers maps, sound knowledge & advise, bike hire, trips, good food & cold draught beer!
I would definetly stay here again & recommend it to others. Ideal base for exploring Beijing & surroundings. No complaints from me :)

The staff here are so nice and helpful! The room was spacious and clean. The downside was the sliding frosted glass door & wall surrounding the bathroom - not very private. My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights, which was fine. But I wouldn't want to spend a lot more time in that particular room for that reason, and also you hear everyone coming and going because we were right off the courtyard. I would definitely stay here again, but would request a room upstairs because they are much more private.

We stay at the classic courtyard 5 nights. We are happy and satisfied with price and service.
With there price hotel is excellent. Very near to the subway station. Also closed to the bus station.
There food is cheap and delicious. Breakfast price only 30RMB. Rooms decoration is Traditional Chinese Style. Same like picture. There have courtyard for relax and meet people. Everywhere is free wifi. Wifi speed is high. There tours and travel service also good. We order muthianyu Great Wall and Kungfu Show. They pick up from hotel and also sent to the hotel.
If we have plan again Beijing we must stay at the classic courtyard.

When the cab pulled stopped at an alley and said the hotel is down there we were really worried. When we got to the hotel it was a real Chinese Experience. The room was clean and had everything we needed. It is about a 10 minute walk to the metro. There is a great coffee shop down the road.

When the cab pulled up at the head of an alley and the driver pointed down it and said your hotels down there but I can't drive any closer I thought "what have I gotten myself into"

I am a guy who has travelled extensively solo. i want a comfortable, convenient base of operations which is clean, has a courteous and knowledgable staff, and is part of the local culture.I have been a guest for four nights and CC has more than met my needs quite well. Some of my women friends would reject the place out of hand--it is not luxurious -- but there are several women staying here who are quite satisfied.

Simon, the guy who oversees the hotel operation, is knowledgable and personable and has been able to get me train tickets and provided detailed subway direction which let me navigate the city efficiently.

So as I said in the title it depends on what you expect from a hotel in Beijing.
