Nice surprisePosted Jul 23, 2012
Pros: beautiful, old, historic, well-kept building. lovely traditonal chinese decor. good made to order breakfast.
Cons: most taxis had a hard time finding hotel. i found it was best to walk out a block to a main road to hail a cab.
Location: a bit too far from hou hai to walk but overall very good hutong location
We usually stay in a big, business hotel in Beijing. We had no idea what this hotel would be like but were very pleasantly surprised at how nice it is. A bit more expensive than other courtyard hotels but worth it. We would stay there again.

A beautiful reminder of old BeijingPosted May 3, 2012
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.

Great optionPosted Apr 15, 2010
Very cute and authentic, quiet hotel. Only about 10 rooms or so. Good western or Chinese breakfast. 24 hour door. Beautiful rooms. Hard beds, but thats the norm in China. Excellent location right by Hou Hai. Much better deal than more expensive and boring western hotels in Beijing.

Traditionl China at its bestPosted Jan 17, 2009 on Hotels.com
The driver met me at Beijing Capital Airport as arranged,he spoke no English but had my name so no problems. The themperature in Beijing was -11 but the hotel had put extra heating on in the room and bought me some green tea as soon as I arrived (1130pm ) The room was a shock to me,having decided against the major hotels I opted for this small 8 bedroomed hotel in the Hutong District of nearly central Beijing. Not a large room by modern standards but big enough for 1 person,furnished with traditional chinese furniture and wall coverings that the website pictures didnt really do credit to. The shower room had a modern round washbasin decorated with chinese scenes,Each morning I had traditional chinese food for breakfast,soup,fried won ton,peach juice,green tea,there was also ham,eggs,cheese and yoghurt on offer. Within walking distance (20 minutes ) of the Forebidden City and Tian an Men Square 9both huge ) passing massive shopping malls on the way. The staff I met all spoke and understood some English. Ask for the pick up seervice from the airport(no charge) they will take you back for 144 yuan (£14 ) so great value. There is a display of old black and white photos in the dining room as well as traditional chinese opera costumes that you can try on.Very fast wifi free of charge also.It was the middle of a bitterly cold winter but an enjoyable stay
