Courtyard Hotel in Hutong
I recommended this hotel to a western friend and he loved it.
-Haoyuan hotel is converted from a well prereserved traditional residential house--Siheyuan (courtyard).
-Only 10 mins walk to the most famous shopping street Wangfujing. 20-30min walk to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City.
-Locates in a quiet Hutong in city center
-Helpful service staff.
1. Back courtyard is better than front one. Northern rooms are the best. Eastern rooms are secondary.
2. Ask for discount if come in low season or stay long.
3. Better book early since there are only 18 guest rooms.
Unique Quality: Haoyuan hotel is converted from a well prereserved traditional residential house--Siheyuan (courtyard).
Hard to find hotel a block away from Wangfujing. The hotel staff was helpful. The breakfast was the same every morning, decent and edible. The hotel courtyard is quiet if you dont feel like going out to the hussle and bustle of the city.
Unique Quality: Quiet courtyard.
Directions: East of Wangfujing
Quiet, But Close To The Action
A short walk to the west takes you to Wangfujing -- one of the main shopping streets of Beijing. Another couple of blocks further west and you are at the wall of the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City). Ten or fifteen minutes walk (if you don't stop to check out street vendors, etc.) south and you're standing in Tiananmen Square. Yet, Hao Yuan is still removed from the major street by being halfway down the Shijia Hutong. In fact, it can be difficult for the taxi drivers from the airport to find it so have them call the guest house for detailed instructions!
Tucked as it is along a rarely-traveled-by-motorized-vehicle hutong, Hao Yuan is free of the traffic noises that plague much of Beijing. No listening of bad brakes on taxis, busses, etc. as you're trying to sleep! There are only 15 or so rooms, so you won't be bothered by other guests. The two courtyards offer a pleasant (and shaded) area to relax after a hard day of sightseeing or business meetings; or you may choose to eat your free morning breakfast (choice of Asian or Western-style) at one of the courtyard's tables.
Traditional Courtyard House in Old Beijing Hutong
Located in Shijia Hutong in Beijing's Dongcheng District, Hao Yuan Guest House was build during the Qing Dynasty. It's a typical courtyard house -- a style rapidly disappearing from Old Beijing with the "improvements" necessitated by the forthcoming 2008 Olympics. Many foreigners prefer to stay here including the Viceroy of Hong Kong in 1988 and it was chosen to host a banquet with U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair visited China in 1999.
Traditional Peace in the centre of Beijing
This hotel is listed in the Lonely Planet as mid-category. It's a 5 minutes walk from Wnafujing Dajie, and about 15 minutes from the entrance of e the Forbidden City.
The hotel is in an old style building in a Hutong, all the rooms give on to central courtyards. The rooms are furnished in a traditional style.
The hotel is very peaceful (especially considering it's in the centre of Beijing), and if you bargain it's not excessively priced for a Beijing hotel (with negotiation, over the Spring Festival, you can get a double room at 370 Yuan, including breakfast)q
Unique Quality: Lovely peaceful rooms.
Breakfast good but not outstanding. A choice of Chinese or Western.
Excellent service, help with booking train tickets, visits to the great wall etc.
Definately worth calling, and negotiating the price!

This site also has the address in Chinese which you can print and show to the taxi driver!
Directions: North of the Dongdan metro station
More about Haoyuan Beijing Hotel
I'm looking for any suggestions for a hotel in Beijing (double in March) for around US$100. Not there on business so I don't care about those kinds of amentities. It should be in the central area or close to the subway. A traditional style hotel would be better than an international one.
