Conveniently located and accessible to many attractions in Beijing, this opulent hotel undoubtedly scores as ideal accommodation among tourists, both solo and in groups. The hotel's prime location on Nanchizi Street makes getting to the Forbidden City and the Working People’s Cultural Palace a breeze for the history buffs. For shopping enthusiasts, there is the Xidan shopping mall and night markets at Donghuamen and Wangfujing nearby to satisfy every shopping need. Guestrooms at Tiananmen Best Year Courtyard Hotel consist of standard and luxury rooms, all of which are traditionally designed with Chinese-inspired furniture and decorations. Yet, every unit is also equipped with modern amenities to suit the needs of today's travelers. Within the hotel, guests will find a coffee shop and a comprehensive business center to help with your every business need.
"Amazing location though."

Our Family trip to Beijing”
Location is walking distance to shopping area and tourist spots. And around 400m to nearest train stn. Just bring food as they don’t have resto in the place. They helped us booked a car/driver for whole day tour to Great Wall of Badakin and Ming’s Tombs.
Stay while you can, won't be there forever!”
What an excellent little spot in the Donghaumen Hutong area. An authentic Hutong courtyard house with the courtyard glazed over, the rooms are small, clean & cozy. Very quiet & peaceful given the location just off of Tiananmen. Tiananmen Square is a 8 minute walk as is the entrance to the Forbidden City. The staff were friendly & helpful organising an excellent trip to the wall & airport transfers with zero warning. If you're looking for a well located, comfortable bed for the night in traditional Beijing surroundings this is the place for you.
Stayed at the hotel for the first four nights in Beijing Simple basic small hotel but only minutes away from the subway Terarman East I think it was exit c walk to the end of the road as you come out of the subway and then turn left Hotel is up an allay on the right hand side of the road There are a row of small shops on the left before you turn up the alley the last one is a mini supermarket Plenty of places to get breakfast near by but you need to be there before they close around 9am Really helpful staff Also if you arrive in Beijing during the day you can travel to the city by the subway
A Must for Courtyard Experience”
Very nice and traditional courtyard experience if you have never seen one before! We were impressed by the architecture as well as the warm welcome from the reception. Very helpful in getting a taxi for our morning flight! Just a stone's throw away from Tiananmen so very convenient if you are there for a short stay and want to visit it. Overall a clean place to stay but the hot water was inconsistent during shower. We moved out of our five stars hotel to stay at this place for our last night to experience this authentic atmosphere and no complains at all!
Cosy little hotel amid the bustle of Beijing”
We arrived late. The hotel had no restaurant but staff directed us just out on to the street where there were many restaurants open that served good food with English menus. Our room was very comfortable and warm. The bathroom was small but well organised. We slept very well and checked out the next morning to continue our travels.
Great location, comfortable hotel.”
This hotel is a gem. It is a chance to stay in the hutong area - the courtyard was great and we spent time everyday sitting in it. The room was comfortable and had an extra bed ready for us (often we have to chase the extra bed up, sometimes it does not even get done then but this one was ready to go). The bathroom was small but we were able to shower comfortably. The mattresses were comfortable and the rooms warm. The bedding was adequate also to keep us warm. The staff were very friendly and helpful, able to give directions to different things like shops, restaurants and buses. There was Wifi that was easy to connect to.
Perfect spot, metro and forbidden city nearby!”
Easy walk to metro and entrance forbidden city. Helpful host! Certainly recommend this place because of central Position.
Bit expensive but proximity to Forbidden city is the plus”
This property is traditional Chinese "Siheyuan" located within the alley. MTR stop at Tiananmen East station and need to walk around 450m to reach the property. The property seems a bit quiet during winter time. Property seems bit rundown but if you want to experience the different between hotel and Siheyuan, give it a try.
excellent service. near from tiananmen. old and dirty....
Despite the name, this is not a hotel. This is more a homestay in a local Chinese family courtyard house. Though the location is strategic (as per advertisement), this place located in a small hutong alley where cars are inaccessible. The road nearest to this place is often closed due to the huge crowd coming from the Museum Palace. The taxi driver was cursing and dropped us on the main road. I traveled with 3 elderly and transport accessibility is key to us. We have to pull our luggage for about 600-700m from the main road to this “hotel” on the uneven and narrow pedestrian walkway together with throngs of hectic crowds. The room was dirty, with dim lighting, the linen smell, furniture was covered with dust, hot water was intermittent, bath screen handle was broken and rusty. I booked this place thinking to provide my elders a cultural experience staying in a Chinese traditional courtyard house before we conclude our 9 days China trip. What a disappointment.
Great Location excellent hosts.”
Xiao Gu (staff) was friendly helpful and spoke English (which was great to help us navigate around China). Nothing was too much trouble she went over and above to ensure our holiday was simply the best. A great place to experience and explore the Hutongs. Highly recommend staying here for a traditional unique holiday.
Charming little hotel with English speaking staff”
We loved this hotel, its location, and it’s staff. One of the goals of the owner was to decorate it in a way to give us a feel and appreciation for early 20th-century China. We prefer inexpensive hotels but with atmosphere and a sense of place and this one has it in spades, yet the bathrooms have modernized so you don't have to give up having an enclosed shower and being able to set your water temperature :-) It's incredibly convenient. Google maps shows it inside the Forbidden Palace. Actually, its across Nanchizi street from the Imperial Ancestral Temple in a hutong. Our 1st cab driver's GPS found it easily and our second knew the street. Look for the alley across from the "_ing Du" Hostel's white, lit, sign (took a picture but can't read it or look down each alley across from the public restrooms for a lit sign that says "58". The sign on the alley is "Denglongku Hutong". Walk less than 100 feet down the alley to a sign that says "Best Year". Turn right and walk maybe 20 feet to the entrance. There is no restaurant but there is a coffee maker that grinds the beans and turns them into espresso. There were plenty of thoughtful touches like a power strip, etc and we liked the mixed rice hull? and fiber fill pillows. Traditional underneath and soft on top like the hotel :-) The nicest suite is up some steep stairs under the eaves with a soft king-sized bed plus 3 twins with normal Chinese-hard mattresses. It had wi-fi only in the little ante-room which also has a rock hard traditional bed (and lots of other decorative old things). We left about 100 lb of suitcases downstairs and took the 60 lb we needed up. They then stored them(for free) in between our 2 stays.
Firstly , siaw Wei n his wife took great care of us (11 of us) . They speak some English enough to get by. The courtyard was the main feature of the hotel where we hung out drinking , chatting n reading. The hotel is slightly run down now , toilets are not as clean as they should be. But overall our 4 nights there was memorable.. This place is only 15 minutes walk to wang fu Ching Lu which was a plus.
Place to stay”
If you are looking for a place to stay, it would be a suitable choice. But if you need more than that, choose some hotels else. adv: 1. the place is in the heart of the city. it is near to tiananmen, imperial palace, wangfujing, the great hall and some other spots that are located in the centre of city. **however, it still take 15 to 30 minutes to walk to the spots 2. the staff are friendly and helpful. they are always with sweet smiles and greet. 3. all rooms are close to each other. if you want to make friends with other travellers, the lobby is a great place. **however, the echo may be a problem at night / early morning 4.the wifi is fast and stable. you can even make a video call in the hotel and the wifi is accessible everywhere in the hotel Disadv: 1. the environment, especially in the bathrm: the wall and curtain are always with unwashable stain; the toilet flush, the bathroom heater and the sink often dun work (water sometimes get so hot that it can boil; as mentioned, echo is quite a problem 2. the location: first, its quite hard to find, it took us 30 minutes to find the hotel; and the location is really quiet and somehow scares me when i come back at late night; also mentioned above that it is not that near to the tourist spots, though its still a walkable distant. FYI, you needa walk for 5 mins to the nearest MTR station. dun expect there will be many food stores / restaurants nearby - few people live in the administrative district, you needa go to the commercial districts for good food and entertainment in conclusion, if you are a healthy, strong person, who is looking for a place with fair price, dun mind to do walking everyday and a place with slight flaws, its a good choice for you. **there are a few restaurant nearby but the owners are really tricky and cunning, they will force up the price to non-locals. ask the price before you order food.
Good Location but hard to find”
First of all the hotel was very hard too find, especially at night where almost all the hutongs looked the same. Location was okay, 10 min walk to Tienanmen square and Metro. Half of the days we spent, there was no hot water. Price was decent. I think you could do better.
Unique experience in a Beijing Courtyard setting”
I was traveling with a group of friends and we all loved the unique setting of the hotel with it's traditional furniture and style . However, the bathrooms were cramped and not the cleanest. Great wifi. The metro is a a 10 min walk to the hotel and Wangfujing is a 15-20 min walk through the neighborhood alleys.
Quiet simple hotel in Central Beijing ”
Fantastic location in quiet area near forbidden city. Short walk to buses and metro. Close to lots of tourist sites and short walk to local restaurants and shops. Rooms certainly not for honeymoon regardless of what it says in their website and big difference in quality of rooms. Try to get one upstairs with own terrace away from noise of courtyard- also some of the downstairs rooms don't have windows!
A fairly simple family run hotel in superb location near the forbidden city and tiannanmen square. Short walk to metro station and buses to access other areas of the city. Staff helpful and friendly and internet and wifi available. Central under cover courtyard area nice and use of kitchen if required as no restaurant on premises. I'd recommend asking to look at available rooms on arrival as there are big differences in standard.
You come to Beijing, and if your purpose is to walk around, then I strongly suggest you to stay here. Firstly, this so call hotel is actually a Si He Yuan (四合院）This kind of houses are the essence of old Beijing. People in those day live in such houses. Then second, it is located very hear to the Palace （故宫）and it is located in a Hu Tong （胡同）. You must experience it. Although the toilet is not perfect but you can't expect much.
Nice, clean and friendly staff”
Good. Nice hotel in a Hutong area. By walking distance have restaurant, convenient store, forbidden city and Tiananmen. Wang Fu Jin street also can reach by walking distance. good experience stay in this courtyard type hotel. Although the place a bit difficult to find but still reachable by local taxi. value for money to stay at this hotel.
