    I liked the location, friendly staff and atmosphere of this place. On checkout at 6 am the owner brought me 5 miles to the best subway station to catch the train for the airport. The night before we had a great talk and (free) dinner together! Can't ask for more!

    The people who run the hotel are exrtemely helpful and courteous.

    The room smelled of cigarette smoke. Their was no ventilation in the room so smells and moisture from bathroom stayed in room. TV was not working. When light was on in next door bathroom you could see into their bathroom.

    I felt very comfortable here. It was like staying with a Chinese family. The staff looked after us, the rooms are cozy and a great location; in the middle of the quiet charming hutongs and close too plenty of cute shops and bars...For this budget it really is hard to beat. I will definitely come again!

    The staff were absolutely fantastic. They really made me feel at home.

    Difficult to find at first, but easy to remember afterwards.

    I spent 5 days at the Purple Courtyard. The staff was kind, and picked me up at the airport. I booked a trip to the Great wall, and it's been simply amazing.

    I asked for guides in town, so to have some indications and company during my tours in Beijing. I was answered that I could easily go around Beijing on my own.. f course it is true, but with someone who teaches me stories it would be much more interesting. Moreover, the Purple Courtyard does not have a common area where guests can meet each other.. Luckily I got to know people in my excurision to the Great Wall. If you come here, I suggest that you take trips as soon as possible, so you can meet new people and make friends for you next tours in town or other places.

    The location was excellent, down a quiet hutong so it was easy to sleep, but close to a bigger hutong and the bell/drum tower. The room was very comfortable - the single beds were simply huge! Carrie, the girl on reception for most of our stay, saved us a lot of time by booking train and plane tickets for us, which was great service.

    To get to the shared shower/toilet you had to go outside, which was fine for us but I suspect could get very cold in the winter months. Also, the hotel wasn't very good at providing directions and didn't have maps - not a problem, but worth being aware so that you can pick a map up as you go! We made use of the Backpackers Hostel on the main hutong to get information about bus numbers, directions etc.

    It was located in Hutong, which mean that after long day you can have nice food near the hotel.

    The bathroom was kind of outside. In october is cold (especially in the evenings) and it felt like doing staff just outside. You actually could get sick after having shower and walking in cold to your room. Shower was a bit dirty and it stinks. That makes it difficult to use. The toilet was often blocked and there was no toilet paper. Hotel is about 20 minutes of fast walk from metro station which is a big issue. Staff speak english very poorly, therefore they are unable to help in anything. They try but there is just no connection. The courtyard it's not realy place to sit and it just look nice on the picture. I would not recommend this hotel because of shower and toillet issue and long way to metro station.

    Lovely traditional courtyard in a quiet location and ideally placed for visiting the sights of Beijing including the Forbidden city and the hutongs, full of quaint shops, restaurants and bars. Went on a day trip to the Great Wall including hotel pickup, transport and lunch, which was well organised and good value. The airport transfer service was also very handy, especially as it's not on a main taxi route. Staff were lovely and very happy to help. Despite the shared bathroom with my room the facilities were very clean and the shower was excellent.

    location was excellent,the staff especially carrie were really helpfull and kind.I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Very satisfied.

    We found Carrie and Li to be wonderful hosts. Li did more than give directions -- he would walk you to the shop! And he'll meet your taxi to guide the driver or walk to the hutong with you. They gave us an umbrella, water -- it was actually more like hotel-level service in many respects. My friend arrived earlier in the evening than I did and enjoyed the dumpling party and meeting other guests. We also appreciated the nice, hot shower and good car service to the airport.

    The room next to the office sometimes has lights on into the evening, so an eye mask is needed if you are light-sensitive. The tradeoff to this is that you have instant access to the staff, so that has advantages too. Plus, that room is perhaps the most secure of all since someone is next to it at all times.

    The local, it's the best, in a typical chinese street and the staff is very helpfull.

    Nice, clean room with small covered balcony upstairs. The staff were friendly and one girl spoke good English. The hotel is a few blocks off the main road w/bars and shops, Nanluoguxiang, so it is really quiet.

    Shared toilet and shower are pretty rustic. But everything was in good working order with hot water. The sign out front says Hutong Home, because they haven't changed the signage yet.

    hotel is in a great location, right off of NLGX, rooms were comfortable, maybe a bit noisy in the morning. staff spoke ok English, but probably couldn't give much tourist information.overall, clean room for a great price.

    subway is a 20 minute walk

    The staff are very nice and friendly. They offered us food for free almost every evening. There is at least always one person around that speaks english and this in China is not straigthforward.

    The room was slightly humid and the restroom was maybe too narrow but ok for the price you pay.

    Nice area, very quiet near some cools hutongs.

    The room was not clean. And there's no breakfast.
