It was wonderful to return to the peace of the Spring Garden Courtyard Hotel after a busy day amid the crowds, dust and noise of Beijing. The staff were always friendly and exceptionally helpful. They were happy to book taxis, call restaurants and answer queries. The 500-year-old courtyard house is quite beautiful and reminds one of how much has been lost in a city ravaged by ring roads, tower blocks and seemingly endless construction sites.

We stayed for 5 days during June and found the hotel very relaxing and restful. Staying here was like staying in someones home with your own room. The courtyard is a very pleasant place to sit and read or have your breakfast. Breakfast if required is basic but fine to get you going of a morning. The bed was ok to sleep on and not to hard. Bathroom is quite small but always had hot water available. This hotel is reached from the main road by alleyways so it is best to have a map and address in Chinese. This is in a very safe neighborhood with plenty of local people, young and old who always seem to be socialising amongst themselves as this is a living neighborhood. In the future hutongs may slowly disappear so experience one when you can. The Metro line is only 5 minutes away, and from there Beijing is your oyster.

Our stay was a very pleasant one. The location is right in the heart of all shopping, local food, and much shopping for trinkets. The people working at this location were a delight, and very helpful. At times during the busy portions of the days at times it was kind of tough to hail a cab as others would tend to beat us to the punch but the bellman would assist us with our needs every time without even asking.

Staffs in the hotel not helpful, they are more kind to their members, not kind to normal guests.
They said check in at 2, but the truth is they ask us to come after 3:30 because of their membership guest can leave at 3. And they even reject to provide a temporary place to rest for elder people.
