“Tucked away jewel”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This is a step back in time with modern conveniences. the staff are bilingual and so very helpful. they go the extra mile to help you feel comfortable in beijing which is teeming with activity and people. the courtyard is an oasis where you can rest and visit people from different countries. its a great place to relax and learn.

Room Tip: all rooms seem equal. you are in a nice hotel surrounded by the hutong atmosphere

This hotel really immerses you in Chinese culture and history - it is set up in the traditional courtyard style with rooms around the outside. Décor is traditional as well. Rooms are decent size, beds were a little hard, bathroom was large. Free wifi and breakfast. It is very close to many restaurants - a little bustling neighborhood - and also a metro stop. Great if you want to avoid a traditional western hotel.

I am from the US, and this was my first time visiting China, and Ron Yard was my first hotel. The hotel gives you all the comforts and amenities of a nice hotel, with the authentic feel of a historic hutong. Very clean, heated, wifi, large bed, large bathroom, everything worked perfectly in the room. The hotel staff was very friendly at check in. My wife and I had 2 very heavy bags and the genlteman who showed us to our room insisted on carrying both of them. I don't know how he did it, must be a former Olympian. Everyone was very friendly the whole time we were there, and they had good recommendations on local food and transportation. The hotel is very convenient to Ping AnLi subway station, just a short walk down Huguosi. The location is great, a short subway ride to city center, and walking distance to Houhai and Beihai Park.

The hotel offers a breakfast which is okay, but I would recommend walking out to Huguosi to grab some street food or eat in one of the resturaunts there.

Great large bathroom, free wifi, airconditioning and comfortable beds ...... and all in a small (newbuild) hutong hotel.

It's not perfect (room cleaning and toilet paper replacement a bit arbitrary) but really to be recommended for its bathroom, location and closeness to Beijing's metro (exit ''A'' of Ping'anli station is 5 minutes walk away; if you're travelling to/from the airport by metro (27 RMB) with luggage note there are 2 easy interchanges with escalators almost everywhere but you do have a couple of staircases to negotiate). It's in a hutong warren so do set your GPS or print out a map of the local streets BEFORE you arrive ! Once you've been there finding it a second time is easy .... Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, Forbidden City within easy walking distance.

I've stayed in half a dozen large hotels in Beijing over the years (all fine) but definitely prefer the atmosphere of the Ron Yard hotel and its surroundings. Will make it my hotel of choice next time !

The hotel itself was a bit hard to find, but once we had our bearings it turned out to be a great location. Cab drivers often let us off at the entrance to the street but that was OK. It wasn't a long walk. As mentioned in other posts, the hotel is an easy walk to the Ping An Li subway station. We enjoyed wandering the streets nearby. We didn't see any other westerners while we were there. The hotel was comfortable enough for our middle-aged selves. Our bathroom was huge. The staff's english wasn't as strong as advertised. We got by, however, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I read all of the reviews, and knew that this was a great place but hard to find. I had maps and directions, but I still got lost. I didn't realise how close Huguosi Street was to the Metro station, but that was an advantage once I knew. Getting from the airport via the Airport Express and the Metro was easy and much less expensive that taxis. I discovered that many entryways look a bit like alleys, but I eventually learned that the alleyways are level with the street. There _was_ a sign that said "Ron Yard" at the end of the alley running off from the street, BUT there was an even bigger sign for a new building that obscured it. And then the hotel is down a dead-end branch that runs off from the alleyway. But once there - WOW! What a great place. So be prepared to get lost, but along the way explore the Huguosi Street and its shops and restaurants. Enjoy!

this is no means a deluxe property.

it's located in a traditional hutong, almost maze-like, but not difficult to locate, and just a short 7-mins walk to Ping An Li subway station entrance/exit, and past several local eateries.

the charming-looking hotel itself is set around a quadrangle courtyard, rooms were quite difficult to locate and if you got a 2nd floor room, good luck finding what seems to be the only set of stairs, and cleverly camouflaged!

got a single room and it was adequate, with a local flavor, bathrooms were not the cleanest, but rather spacious. don't expect any views from the windows. all you will get is just that a dusty yard.

breakfast was almost terrible and pathetic. the hot dishes were OK, but if you're not accustomed to having rice and vegetables for breakfast, you can settle for the dry bread and croissants. the coffee however, from a coffee machine was a lifesaver. it did make a very decent cup of joe. breakfast is not always included, and the attendant will ask you for a meal voucher in mandarin.

don't expect english to be spoken much.

free wifi is available throughout the property so this was a plus.
