Soluxe Sunshine Courtyard Hotel
Ranked #2,264 of 6,568 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 13 June 2014

This is a simple traditional hotel. Staff does almost not speak english. Rooms are ok, clean, with airco. The hotel is well located close to 2 subway lines. Also supermarket and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Breakfast is chinese, only toast with jam as western choice, also fresh egg preparations. Wifi only in lobby, not in the rooms. Quite hard beds.

I stayed here with a party of students from the US and the hotel was more than adequate for our needs. The location is good, with the underground literally around the corner. There is a convenience store just up the road by the McDonalds and plenty of restaurant choices close by. The hotel is an experience away from the standard looks the same hotel chain. The rooms are located on quiet courtyards and have air, small but functional bathrooms, robes, slippers and tea facilities. It is very peaceful. The breakfast is good- toast, fried eggs to order, boiled eggs, soup, excellent egg rice, meaty dumplings etc. if you can't put up with clean, but basic accommodation then you are better off in an anonymous room in a chain hotel.

Pro: quiet and safe place, very close to metro, in a walking distance from downtown attractions. By the way you can observe hutongs around the hotel. Many places to eat local and international food around. Rather good wifi (better than in some more expensive hotels in Beijing). Linen, towels and bathroom facilities are clean. The teapot and hairdrier are provided (as generally in every Chinese hotel). The staff speak English.
Contra: The sockets do not always hold the plugs, the wallpaper comes off. The floor is dirty in some places. The bathroom has only a shower with a curtain and two holes in the floor, thus all the floor around becomes wet. The hotel was overpriced (I reserved it through Expedia and paid $73 per night for a single room, but it doesn't cost more than $40)

We had a delightful five nights at this courtyard hotel. It's up a little lane, but the transfer driver had no trouble negotiating it. We had a de luxe twin bed which provided everything we needed. The room was a decent size and the bathroom perfectly acceptable for this type of accommodation. The main building looked pretty ordinary, so I'd strongly recommend the courtyard rooms. It's a short walk to the Drum Tower and Hou Hai Lakes. There's plenty of taxis around, as well as restaurants. I'd be choosing this hotel rather than a chain any time I happened to be returning to Beijing. The street life at night was most interesting. We didn't eat there, so I can't say anything about the food.

Room Tip: Definitely a de luxe courtyard.

I paid 28 GBP for 2 people per night for a twin room. The room was small, but acceptable. The TV has no English channels. However - the air con was excellent, the bathroom was a nice wet-room and the cleaners did a great job. The hotel courtyards are beautiful, particularly at night (think Bond getting off the boat at the casino in Skyfall). Do not expect good service (it was LOUSY) but I got exactly what I paid for - a clean and cold place to sleep in a baking hot and dirty city. Great location (close to metro, hutongs, good for walkers).

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor rooms in block A - all clustered around reception (though first floor rooms are f...

Stayed here in late March '13. It's very close ( about 300 metres ) to Exit E of Guloudajie on the metro - but of course I walked half of Beijing to find it. The cheaper rooms in the main building ( near Reception ) are small and old and a bit ratty. They are the cheaper rooms. The first I was offered was dank, directly over the Reception area ( thought it would be noisy ) - I got it changed which they happily did. I by yourself and spending the day out and about, the room is OK. The bathroom is large, the water warm. If you meeting business associates, would suggest you get the more expensive rooms in the courtyards outside around what was once a temple ( I guess ? ) The gardens are nice, a good spot to prop and read a book. The breakfast buffet was a bit ordinary, bit western/bit chinese, neither good. Be warned however, there is not much in the way of eating places near this hotel that are open before lunchtime. The Hotel however, is very conveniently located.

Stayed at this hotel for 8 days. Location: It is set not far in from the main street and is a short walk to Guluo dajie subway station's many entrances. Very convenient. It is also a short walk to the Bell and Drum Towers as well as well known hutongs & HouHai Lakes etc. If you are up for it, you are also in walking distance of the Lama Temple, and the Forbidden City; otherwise just take the subway at your door step. Description: The hotel is simple. You check in. You get a room. Room service every morning. The staff stay out of your way unless you need something. Staff are friendly and helpful. Their English is limited to passable but nothing a little sign language can't resolve. They also refused tips. The rooms are functional. Don't expect things to be perfect; the walls are peeling, the sockets do not always hold the plugs etc but hey it's just a place to sleep. The hotel architecture itself is lovely, traditional style, with a history dating back over 500 years. You can relax sitting out in their 3 different courtyards. Not many tour options available at the hotel. The breakfast provided in the hotel restaurant is over priced for the quality so unless it's included in the price, skip it. I had no problems staying at the hotel so I give it 4 stars (despite being initially surprised by the small rooms and peeling walls). Would stay again.

Room Tip: Choose one of the courtyard rooms if you need complete silence at night
