Just had one night in transit - would love to come back and stay longer. Traditional one story Chinese hotel with rooms beautifully arranged around several courtyards. Incredibly friendly staff. Interesting, comfortable, and immaculately clean room with very nice bathroom. Not a big space, but more than enough for comfort. On a quiet lane with rare cars less than one block from a wonderful street of small shops and restaurants.
“Would definitely stay here again!”
The staff was courteous and friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The hutong was delightful, many shops and restaurants nearby and the area was amazingly quiet at night.
“More than we expected”
If you want a hotel offering you a mix of East and West, this is the place for you. Forget the 'business' hotels that seem to whitewash Chinese culture, Courtyard 7 gives you what you want: a Chinese experience for western travelers. The staff really does their best to take care of you. Know that the idea of hospitality service in China is still adolescent, at best, and Courtyard 7 is very close to adulthood. The location is perfect. Difficult to get to by taxi but well worth it. Learn the name of the main street near there -- Nanluogo Xiang. A quaint "walking" street with shops, cafés, etc. On the corner from our hotel's street and Nanluogo is a Korean restaurant, "Saveurs de Korée", easily the best in the neighborhood. There are perhaps two main areas for improvement. The hotel restaurant needs lots of work. The dishes are disappointing (especially relative to price) and the menu needs more light items for weary travelers to snack on (the restaurant was never busy, except for the included breakfast in the morning). The bed was really not very comfortable at all (this was probably more of the East side of the experience than the West) and takes getting used to.
“Lovely Hotel - Exactly What We Wanted”
Hotel was in a Hutong and was exactly what we were hoping to experience. The staff could not have done more for us, they were very attentive to every question and need. Very helpful with directions and transportation. Having use of the free bicycles was very nice way to explore Beijing. Hotel was within walking distance to many tourist attractions and places to eat.
Hotel is really amazing! Everything is filled with history, although it has all modern facilites.A bit hard to find it for the first time, but then it was OK, Defenetely recommend this hotel!
“Memories for Life!!”
It was a dream to someday see Beijing and this trip did not disappoint!! I cannot say enough great things about the staff and character of Courtyard 7! The location is perfect and a the people so friendly! I couldn't imagine staying in a Western Style hotel and recommend Courtyard 7 highly! May all your dreams come true!
“Blast in Beijing”
The staff was extremely pleasant and offered everything we needed. They gave us a nifty little guide with directions to all the touristy destinations and set us up with a great driver for the great wall tour. And the rooms are beautiful!
“Absolutely the best!!”
Courtyard 7 is a must for a stay in Beijing. The old world charm of the hotel and the rooms is great. The staff are very helpful...really go out of their way. Breakfast is outstanding. My room had all the amenities I could ask for, and all the comfort and character I was looking for. It's a lovely place.
“Great chinese experience”
I would suggest this hotel for anyone who wants an authentic chinese cultural experience.
“Very cool addition to Beijing experience”
We arrived very late due to a flight delay, but someone was still awake and able to help us at 4am. The lanterns in the courtyard were all lit up and created a really cool atmosphere. The rooms were neat, with traditional Chinese bed frames (should be noted that hard mattresses are standard in China)and a modern, clean bathroom. Small space, but part of the vibe. The grounds are peaceful and sitting in the courtyard you feel like you're back in another time. The hotel is right off a main street full of shops and restaurants. Staff were helpful when we called for assistance with telling the cab driver where the hotel was located. I would definitely go back there.
