The staff's english is not that well, but they will try to help you with anything to help you. don't expect more for the price you pay, it's the same quality you have at clean hostels for half the price and therefore too expensive in my opinion.

Staying at Beijing Houhai Courtyard Inn made my experience from Beijing much more alive. Staff was very helpful and even with limited English introduced me to Chinese guests who wanted to visit the same places as me. Then I spent two days with them traveling around Beijing and to the Great Wall. The building is quiet nice inside, decorated in traditional Chinese style. Location is great, subway is right behind two corners or you can take a 15minute walk to the lakes. A thoughtful farewell gift was a plaesant ending to my stay at Beijing Houhai Courtyard Inn.
