Great location. Very cosy atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff.

Kelly's Courtyard is serene and classy. Perfect place to stay to get away from reality and enjoy peace and quiet. The atmosphere is definitely this hostel's main asset. They even offer to help with tours to the Great Wall with your own private driver. It's a little bit more pricier but is worth the money when you are traveling in a small group. The location however is very hard to find. Don't worry, when you call the hostel, they are more than happy to talk to the taxi driver.

Great choice, friendly staff and my bed was very comfortable. If you want an alternative to a western hotel this is it. Make sure you have the phone number and map for taxi driver. Thanks Kelly Cortyard you are doing a great job

A little gem in the heart of Beijing. Mark the manager was extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us. His English is excellent. The rooms were clean and pretty. The communal areas were lovely. The courtyard made a beautiful breakfast area and the rooftop terrace was a perfect spot for a cold beer after a long day sight-seeing.

We had a great stay at Kelly's Courtyard ! It is located on a side alley street that is not accessible to cars, so our taxi had a hard time finding it. However we had the phone number with us and the cab driver called Mark who was very helpful in getting us there. It's close to public transportation and within walking distance of the Forbidden City. Mark was very helpful and gave good restaurant recommendations and even booked us a private driver for the day to go to the Great Wall.

We just loved our stay at Kelly's Courtyard. Much of all this is due to the super friendly and attentive Mark. Hisr tips and considerations make all the difference! The hotel is well located, close to two metro stations, and 10 minutes from the shopping district. The rooms are clean, although the bathroom is a bit small. The breakfast is correct, but it would be nice if they had other options of breads and cheese. We loved our stay, and certainly we'll repeat at the next opportunity!

We loved staying here, it is such a pretty place and we were made to feel very welcome. Mark was fantastic, he was always on hand to help us. It also felt very safe. The location was good with the subway only a short walk away but also suitably located to be able to walk to Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City. Would definately recommend as more personal and colourful than hotels and great value for money.

My husband LOVED the place. I thought it was very nice, but found the location a little challenging. They send a map and between that & the GPS on our phone, we still got lost the 1st time we went there. (Maybe we could have actually studied the map closer rather than following GPS). Once we found it the 1st time we were fine. It seems wa-a-yy-y back in the hutong. Coming from Chicago, I was nervous to be walking out there after dark, but Mark assured us it was safe and indeed, it seemed to be.

It. was the best accommodation we had on our China Trip. It is a very quiet place and Mark does everything that you feel like at home. No question stays unanswered. The room was beautiful and clean. The location is Perfect as it is quiet but only 5minutes walk to the metro. It was a pleasure staying there and we would always come back! Thanks Karen and Thomas

Fantastic place to stay in Beijing. Lovely area in the Hutongs but central. Does not feel super touristy so feel like your in it. Great staff, really friendly and helpful. Room and set out is very interesting and makes a good atmosphere. They've done a very good good here! We only had two days in Beijing on the transit visa, wished we had longer and would stay here.

I found that the sstaff was very nice, friendly and willing to help in any circumstances. My mother died at our home while I was visiting in China, and the staff at Kelly's, especially Mark, offered use of phone and amenities for me to communicate with family. It is a very warm, welcoming accommodation. jim cato

Our stay here was pleasant and we can't fault the hostel for it's cleanliness and style. The rooms had character and were a good size. Mark was great at helping us find our way around and gave tips on things to do in Beijing. He helped us find another couple who wanted to take a taxi to the Great Wall and arranged it for us, which was fantastic. Our only negative points were that it was sometimes a little too quiet and not very sociable and breakfast was the same everyday so a little dull.

What a lovely find! An absolute wonderful little guesthouse with amazing staff that are so helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble! Lovely atmosphere with wonderful quirky furnishings, makes you feel like a home from home :) I will definitely be going back, they accommodated myself and my bicycle and were very helpful in making sure I arrived safely!! Can't recommend this enough , try it yourself, you won't be disappointed !

Kelly's is an extremely pretty courtyard hotel that gives a more traditional Chinese experience when staying in Beijing. It is conveniently located just a short distance from 2 metro stops. The rooms are very comfortable, and the whole place has a very relaxed atmosphere (in a quiet location off the main street) ensuring a good nights sleep before heading into the city/to the Wall. A definite plus was our host Mark who is a great guy, has excellent English and is a real asset to Kelly's.
