“Good Clean Hotel in Great Location”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

We (family of 5) stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in July 2013.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception staff spoke moderate English (certainly enough to help us with any queries). We'd booked a trip to the Great Wall as part of our tour, and when the driver called to arrange a collection time, they asked him to delay by 15 minutes so that we would have time for breakfast before we left.
The rooms were clean and the toilets/showers of a good standard. Breakfast, whilst modest, was ample and made a good start to the day.
The hotel (down a side road) is ideally situated for the Tiananmen/Forbidden City (20 min walk) and close to the metro (5 min walk).
I would certainly stay there again.
The only negative is that laundry was rather expensive. I don't know whether this is the hotel's mark-up or whether this service is just expensive in Beijing. We actually found our clothes hanging out to dry in a local side street (about 1 minute walk). Maybe worth taking the clothes direct to the "laundrette" yourself.

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a week in late July for a reasonable sum. Looking back on my experience of China I would definitely say the hotel was great value for money. The location was at first a little off putting at first being far down an alley way but hutongs as we later discovered are very common in China and this one was very safe and added to the authenticity of the place. Plus we ended up quite enjoying watching the locals play street games every night walking back.

When we stepped inside The Sihe Courtyard hotel we felt like we'd entered a heightened traditional China, the courtyard itself is beautifully decorated and ornate. Our Empress Suite (which i'd really reccomend) was gorgeous with a beautiful woodern four poster bed drapped with silk. The bathroom had all the modern facilities exactly where you'd want them!

Bar the incredible novelty of staying in such a beautiful hotel what really stood out for us were the lovely ladies at the front desk in particular Mary. They all spoke very good English- a massive plus after being lost in translation in my following hotel! They were extremely helpful- one night we asked for directions to an international cinema and they were very resourceful also offering to drive us there as it was nearby for free. In fact you can take advantage of a free car for a 1/2 mile radius (I believe).

The location was also very good, only 10mins walk to the city centre and lots of little boutique shops surrounding. Restaurants nearby were also very good!

My only negitative is that we would have liked longer hours for breakfast but then we're talking 10am which is pretty common anyway and maybe we were just lazy.

I would most definitely reccomend this hotel for couples as it is very romantic but also for first time travellers or solo travellers just because of the extent of help you will get.

Room Tip: Go for the empress suite and above as there are nice trimmings!

Beijing Sihe Courtyard Hotel was spotless. The staff was very helpful and efficient. The breakfast was tasty. The hotel and neighborhood were safe, even late at night. Free ride from the airport was great and available ride back to the hotel from within the 2nd ring useful. Seven minute walk to the subway. Air conditioning was cool (and critically needed during the summer). Recommended for all, especially families and those looking to stay off the beaten path.

I was really impressed by both the service and the beautiful siheyuan. It is very hard to find hotels with decent customer service in China, which made the service we encountered here all the more pleasant. I've stayed in many hotels in Beijing that cost the same and had much poorer service.The girls manning the front desk were extremely helpful with directions, and were all very well-mannered. The hotel also provides a free taxi service. They have two cars and drivers that can drop you where you like in Beijing city. Although we did not have the time, they also have free bike rentals, which are great for exploring more of the hutongs.
The room we stayed in was very traditional Chinese, and very beautiful. We were on the second floor, which made carrying luggage up a pain. They helped us with that, however, and it it was worth it, since we had our own balcony.
The location is also quite good. A subway stop is around 10 minutes from the hotel by foot, and clothing and food stores are easily accessible. Finding the hotel was a bit difficult since it was buried in one of Beijing's many hutongs, but for us that meant a more authentic feel and direct access to the hutongs, one of old Beijing's treasures. The hutongs are very narrow, but if you insist, the taxi drivers will be able to let you off at the hotel's doorstep.

Room Tip: if you don't mind dragging luggage up a narrow staircase, choose one on the second floor. beauti...

Beijing sihe courtyard hotel is an authentic Hutong courtyard with outstanding staff and perfect service. It is my second time to this hotel and this time i bring my daughter with me. We get a delux room, the bathroom is morden and convient while the room decrotion is very tradtional chinese. The staff are polite and helpful, and their own driver can send you to nearby places like wangfujin street and the tiananmen square for free. We enjoy staying there and would highly recommed to others.

I did not particularly care for Beijing but the Sihe Courtyard Hotel made all the difference between an ok stay and a fascinating one. Located down a funky hutong (alley) the hotel was an ironic breath of fresh air in. Beautiful interiors and wonderful service.

My wife and I wanted to stay in a hotel that was not a typical tourist hotel in Beijing (as we had done three years ago), and we were very happy indeed with our choice of this hutong hotel. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, helpful and efficient from the moment of our arrival, and have a good grasp of English. The room we had, at the back of the hotel, looked out onto a small courtyard with greenery, sunshade and chairs, and was very quiet. The bedroom and shower room were both fine and spotlessly clean - though admittedly not as large as you might get in a typical tourist hotel, but that is what you would expect in a hutong hotel. The buffet breakfast (geared to both Chinese and western tastes) was full, varied and appetising. The hotel is conveniently located about a ten minute walk to Dongsi subway station, which is on two subway lines. Our only reservation is that the location of the hotel might be a bit daunting for a guest who has just arrived in China: the hotel is only a few minutes walk down a lane away from a main road with several buses running along it, but as the lane is a hutong, it is rather narrow, without pavements, and to anyone new to China might seem an unlikely approach to a high-end hotel. On our departure for the airport we asked for the shuttle service to the main road mentioned in the hotel information booklet, but the hotel staff spontaneously offered the hotel car to take us all the way to the main bus station at Dongzhimen where the Beijing Airport Express subway line also starts. Overall, then, a very pleasant stay indeed!
