Imperial Courtyard Hotel
Ranked #178 of 6,531 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 16 April 2015

The courtyard is easy to access by public transport ( Subway Line 2). I don't have problem to find the place since I have the map downloaded for the taxi driver. Buses to tourist attractions are only 5 minutes walk from the ours yard. The rooms are smaller compared to the pictures. The standard room is small but the Executive room will give you an adequate space for 2 people. The inverter Aircon/heater is working well. No safe deposit in deluxe or executive rooms, but there is one in the luxury room (room 202). The staffs are wonderful, always ready to help with transport and sightseeing advice. During my stay, my mother was having bad cold and cough and Amy has guided us with useful information with pharmacy location. This is the place where you will feel safe and comfortable, in the middle of local residential area. And the bonus: unlimited fast internet access. A good place to experience the local ambience in Hutong, Beijing.

Room Tip: Executive room 107 in first/ground floor or Luxury room (202) in second floor

Stayed 6 days here and 2 at Holiday Inn temple of heaven.

- in the hutong area, I met nice locals who are less busy than other districts.
- convenience with many stores around. You may rent an old dirty bike at a bike repair shop. Make the receptionist write it for you in Chinese if you can't. 50 yuan for 6 days.
- biking is super convenient around the hutong. I rode from the hotel to Sanlitun and back and other hutong neighborhood. Drive along with locals. I can breeze through from the hotel to the subway station.
- more local feel. I stayed at a fancier hotel but the area is more commercial so people are too busy to chat with me.

- not clean. I had to clean the floors myself. The place reminds me of a glittery Christmas tree with dusts and cobwebs on close inspection.

- when you get out of the Andingmen subway station . Look for the small river. There's only one so you won't miss it. Face that river and to your back is your destination. Now you're facing opposite the river, observe the locals as they cross the bridge overlooking the highway traffic. Cross the same way and and observe the tiny park onto your right side where people can sit and hang out ( like in the photos). Walk along the promenade and on be on the look-out for the red flashing sign of the hotel. It's also on a long busy street so it's hard not to miss it. Follow the lights unto the small narrow way and it's there.

Overall, I love this area. This less glittery area is safe but has a more Beijing-feel to it. I was hanging out with real Beijing people and buying their local pancakes. If you are open to new experiences, this is it. There's also hair salons and 24-convenience stores etc....

Although the Chinese value ultra modern this is an interesting place to stay if you want to experience a more traditional stay in Beijing. Directions to the hotel: from the airport take the subway to Andingman subway station. Orient yourself so that the river is on your right Cross the bridge over the river. Go west along Ring Road 2 two blocks. Walk on the sidewalk under the trees parallel to the highway. As you are walking there will be a tall building with a pointy roof to your left. At the second hutong( alley) you will see a large red electric sign flashing hotel about halfway down the block. Turn left at the sign and the hotel is a few buildings down. About a five minute walk from the subway.
Hotel staff speak reasonable English and are very helpful. Tours can be organized from the front desk. Tours to the Great Wall cost about $50.
Breakfast is included.
