We travelled to Beijing in mid November and stayed for 3 nights at 800 RMB a night for a small suite, which was a goodwill upgrade.
The room was decked in traditional furniture with adequate heating. There was complimentary usage of a PC. It felt overwhelming knowing the courtyard was the home of a scholar during the Qing Dynasty, and witnessed the Opium War, both World Wars and the Cultural Revolution. .
Location wise, the court yard is a 10-15 min walk to 东四subway which is 3-4 stops away from major sights like the Forbidden City, Bei Hai Park etc.
Unfortunately, WIFI was slow and made surfing impossible. Also, the mattress was hard. Otherwise, it's a great accommodation for exploring Beijing.
