This Hutong is located in the Dongcheng District just off South Luo Gu Lane.
Once you are on south Luogu lane you have to be alert to see which side street to turn down. Things can be very crowded with people. Your taxi will not drive you exactly close to the Hutong. They would typically drop you at either entrance of South Luogu lane and you have to walk. More likely than not, your taxi driver would have know idea where exactly Courtyard 7 Hutong is. My driver had to ask several people just to find South Lougu Lane. Very surprising considering the number of people both Chinese and tourist, that go to the area.
I arrived late at night. I lucked out finding the right street and fortunately the Courtyard 7 has hanging red lanterns and a 24 hour desk attendant. The Hutong is a classic. Once through the entrance at the front desk, you walk through a stone circular arch to a small courtyard. To the left is the dinning area. To the right is the festooned entrance to the main courtyard and all the rooms. The hotel can sleep up to 40 people.
I had room number 4. It is considered a typical Hutong room, very small with a traditional canopy bed and very limited furniture.
Unique Quality: Although the room is small, the amenities are top notch. Shower was always hot and cleaned everyday. Breakfast was included with my stay. As usual with courtyard hotels, the bed can be a little stiff if they have the traditional canopy type bed. The staff was very helpful with writing direction in Chinese in case I got lost.
My favorite thing about Courtyard 7 was the location. I could walk to all the popular attractions and restaurants without trying to deal with a taxi.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back to Beijing.
