not for westernersPosted May 23, 2014 on Hotels
Stayed three nights at Spring Garden to get the hutong experience. The staff we helpful but the neighborhood had only two restaurants. Getting a cab was about impossible though staff did help. Not real close to anything. The room was nice. The furniture was all broken and chipped, and had probably not been dusted in a few years. The bathroom was semi clean. The biggest thing that westerners will not like is that the used toilet tissue was put in trash bin not toilet. Probably not for the faint of heart.

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
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

Zeer slecht hotel Smerig .Posted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: zeer slecht
Cons: niemand aanbieden
Location: goede locatie ook qua subway, verder niets
Prijskwaliteit zeer slecht. Dit hotel mag en moet je de mensen niet meer aanbieden. De badkamer en het toilet werd op heftig aandringen schoongemaakt. De kamer wordt niet schoongemaakt., dikke lagen stof. Het ontbijt, zeer beperkt werd geserveerd in de kelder, kil en onprettig. Wij waren de enige gasten. Nooit meer. Wij bieden een beter alternatief namelijk hotel SIHE Courtyard Hotel. Ligt een paar hutongs zuidelijker. Schoon, goede verzorging, vriendelijk personeel en qua prijs de helft goedkoper.

Hotel Sring Garden Courtyard: recomendable para visitar BeijingPosted Jul 3, 2011
El hotel está cerca de una estación de metro en un barrio tranquilo. Es una zona céntrica adecuada para visitar la ciudad. La decoración y el ambiente son agradables, de estilo chino. El personal es extremadamente amable y hablan buen inglés. Solo que pedimos una habitación triple y era pequeña para tres.

Good Traditional Courtyard HotelPosted May 3, 2011
If you are looking for traditional place in Beijing, well this is the place that need. The rooms are beautiful, ours was a bigger one and it was very nice with traditional furniture.In the morning you can hear sounds of bird song. The front-desk staffs spoke English well, and were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were rather basic but adequate (choice of Chinese or Western). In terms of accessibility it is close to the subway (Ping'ali or Xisi - line 4) and reasonably central to the major sights. In terms of price it seemed on the high side but appropriate when compared with other options.

Spring Garden Courtyard HotelPosted Apr 22, 2011
Hotel très atyique, style chinois traditionnel, avantages : peu de chambres (8) donc peu de monde, inconvénients : éloigné du centre de la ville, adresse peu connue des chauffeurs de taxis (des problèmes pour rentrer le soir), peu ou pas de service hotelier (lavage du linge, restaurant) et finalement prix très cher comparé à des hotels plus occidentaux type Novotel . Le personnel de l'hotel est très sympathique et toujours dispo pour rendre service ou donner des renseignements.
