The staff was friendly and spoke English. They helped us arrange bicycles to rent, tell us how to use the bus and answer any questions my wife...

This is a well-liked place for frequent visitors of Beijing. It is truly a home away from home for those seeking a nostalgic experience. The place has just gotten sweeter (or shall I say hotter;)) as the owner recently opened a Chungking (Chongqing) style noodle place near the Andingmen metro station that is 5-10 minutes away by walking. This hole-in-a-place...

We stayed here for a week in September, and overall I'm pretty happy with our choice. The room was OK with well functioning air con, good shower (though the bathroom could do with a thorough scrub) and very comfortable bed. Also the Wifi worked great. The free laundry is absolutely great and very handy if staying for a longer time....

Old Beijing is rapidly vanishing. Fortunately, the area around the Drum Tower has been preserved with old "hutong" labyrinths and traditional 1-2 storied houses with inner courtyards. The Courtyard View Hotel is located in a quiet, yet safe and convenient section from the busy Old Drum Tower Road. You are literally minutes for the famous South Luogu Street, a historical...
