No air vent in the bathroom/showerPosted Oct 24, 2015
Pros: The staff, very friendly.
Cons: Air vent in the bathroom.
Location: Just walk around and feel what it is like living in a hutong!
I am sensitive to smell. I had a hard time with the odor from the drain (which happens A LOT in China when the drain pipe lacks the "S" shape to prevent gas escaping from the waste pipe). And, the direction was not good for a taxi driver to reach the hotel. I also failed to get a taxi to come to the hotel when I wanted to leave. Luckily, my luggage had 8 wheels!

Rude unhelpful staff, no English as advertisedPosted Oct 21, 2015
Hotel in a great area but other than that terrible. Rooms dirty, drains blocked in shower. Staff were no help, spoke selective English. Could speak English to sell you crappy tours but not to help you with directions or anything else. Seemed to be many family members staying in "hotel". It was more like a bed and breakfast, except no breakfast (not even coffee or a kettle to use) worse beds in China and staff made you feel like an unwanted house guest. People drinking in courtyard until late making sleeping hard if you have early starts. There is Downtown Backpackers up the road, we went there for help with tours and directions. They were very helpful even though we were not guests. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. You can do so much better for the price.

隠れ家的な異国情緒溢れるホテル※非常に場所が分かりにくいがPosted Aug 17, 2015
8月のお盆休みに3泊しました。 こじんまりと佇む異国情緒溢れるホテルでした。お店の人はあまり英語が得意ではありません。私がチェッインした時パスポートを求められたので提示するが、お店の人のスマホの写真機能が壊れていてコピーが取れずてんやわんやする事態が発生。私もお店の人も片言の英語だったので、意思疎通が大変でした。 結局日本でパスポートをコピーして持っていたのでそれを渡して事なきを得ました。なのでパスポートのコピーは念のため携帯していた方が良いですね。 ホテルは一流ホテルに比べれば見劣りしますが、清潔でエアコンもあって、タオルも毎日交換、温水シャワーもでき、歯ブラシもついています。 デメリットは場所が非常に分かりにくい。googlemapで表示されている場所より東へ500メートルはズレているので注意。 また細い路地を通って行くため初めての夜迷ってホテル周辺をウロウロはしたく無い。 またタクシーの運ちゃんにホテルの住所カード渡してもそのホテルの前までは連れて行ってくれないので結局最寄り地下鉄駅より歩く必要あり。 メリット 異国情緒溢れ、雰囲気が良い 清潔 デメリット 店員の英語が片言 場所が非常に分かりづらい 暗くて細い道を歩いていく必要あり。※しかしすぐ近くに外国人もよくいる隠れ家的バーもあるので治安に関してはそこまで神経質になる必要はないと思われる 向いている人 自力でホテルに辿り着ける人 最初の日の到着が暗くなる前に着く人 異国情緒溢れ、中国人のリアルな生活に触れたい人 快適に過ごしたい人 最後にもう一度。場所が非常分かりにくい。 しかしそれが隠れ家的な雰囲気を醸し出しているということ

만족스럽다.Posted Aug 13, 2015 on Hotels
위치가 너무 골목이어서 찾기 힘들었다. 하지만 나머지 서비스는 만족스럽다.

The way to see how the real people live in ChinaPosted Jul 31, 2015 on Hotels
The ultimate in the chineese experience, old Beijing. If you go to china stay here. The real world NO American stuff. Only one maybe 2 anywhere who spoke English, but very helpful to write for you in Chinese what you wanted.. Really amazing.. Very safe area to walk late at night. Subway easy to find. Wow Wow...

Ok hotelPosted Jul 18, 2015 on Hotels
Rooms are ok. Internet connectivity was very bad though. Staff is friendly and tries to help where possible. Anyway, for a slightly higher price you can stay in a nicer hotel in the same area.

great place to stayPosted Jul 14, 2015 on Hotels
It is within 15 minutes walking of 2 subway stops, the drum and bell towers, and a lively lakeside entertainment/shopping district. The lama temple is also nearby. There are also lots of restaurants near the hotel. The folks who work there are helpful and knowledgeable, there are lots of places to sit and hang out, and the wifi is pretty good. The bed was a little stiff but that is common in China. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Location; Good Service--Everything you needPosted Jun 24, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed at Beijing City Court for 4 days June 2015. I'm a regular traveler to and throughout China. If your expectations are in the right place, you will not be disappointed. The hotel is conveniently located near AnDing Men and GuLou subway stops, plenty of restaurants (of all flavors and budgets), bars. Best yet, your are nestled in Beijing's hutongs. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We used their laundry service too. By some standards, the room is small. Nevertheless, it was more than adequate for my wife and I as we had meetings most days. The bed was comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are OK. Keep in mind that the sewage system in many hutongs are not up to the standards of newer communities in the city. If you are weirded out by these things, then, maybe this hotel isn't for you. I like to think that it adds character to the place. Would stay there again for sure.
