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 street filled with shops and cafés. Bus stop is just a minute away and the metro about 15 minutes by foot. There are a lot of places to eat in the area. When you return from busy Beijing back to the hotel, you are back to tranquility. The hotel was converted from a small courtyard house. All the rooms surround a small courtyard where you can relax and enjoy breakfast. The owner, Jerry, is fluent in English. He can arrange pick up from the airport, even late flights from US. He can give you a lot of traveling tips for Beijing and many places in China as he has backpacked across China. After traveling extensively in Europe and the Americas, I have been traveling lately in China to see the famous historical and natural sights (before they become too touristy!). I am so glad that I found this small gem over two years ago. This is my home from home.
