We were generally very pleased with our stay at the SIHE hotel. Our room was lovely and had all the facilities we required. The light above the wash hand basin only worked intermittenly so shaving was a bit of a hit and miss affair.
The Beijing Sihe Courtyard Hotel is a Chinese traditional courtyard hotel in Beijing hutong. The said place was the former residence of famous Chinese artist Mr. Mei Lan Fang . 10 minutes walking distance from WangFuJing, the travel and commercial center of Beijing. Si He is designed base on the original Chinese historical construction ---- Si He Yuan, which is used to be the home of Chinese ancient imperial royalty. It is the only one hotel in Beijing which was built in the beginning period of Qing Dynasty.

It costs 150RMB per car with max 4 people with luggage. (surcharge 50RMB from 17:00pm to 8:30am)The rate includes high way toll and parking fee.

From the airport to the hotel it never costs more than 150 RMB. However, I am very sorry to tell you that the taxi driver maybe parks the car near the mouth of the hutong. It takes about 7 minutes to walk into the hutong and get to our hotel.3 By subway: First, you should take the Air Express from the airport and get off at Dongzhimen Station, then transfer the line 2 subway and change the line 5 at Lama Temple Station, you could get out of the tube at Dongsi Station, C exit, go along the Dongsi south street about 300 meters, find the Dengcao hutong sign on the left of the road. Turn left into the small alleyway and walk about 300 meters. You will see 四合宾馆（HOTEL）on your left hand, Chinese traditional red wooden doors with two bunches of red lanterns on it.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We were generally very pleased with our stay at the SIHE hotel. Our room was lovely and had all the facilities we required. The light above the wash hand basin only worked intermittenly so shaving was a bit of a hit and miss affair.The staff although very friendly were sometimes struggling to understand my requests and they were unable to re-confirm my flight departure from the hotel either by phone or email..
I do think the website needs updating as there are inaccuracies in the text, the most glaring when it says the hotel offers free transport to the airport. Apparently this ceased in 2009. There was also the offer of free fruit each day.....This did not materialise nor did the entertainment....
Maybe this was rather lost in translation?
However I would not hesitate in recommending this quaint hotel , such a refreshing change to the large impersonal edifices offered.
