About Sitting On The City Walls Courtyard House

Beijing City Walls is an exquisite traditional courtyard house, located within an ancient urban town area, the most authentic old town in Beijing. In front of our gate, there is a traditional zigzag alleyway - completely different from many areas.

Beijing City Walls is very different from many of the beautiful Hutongs that are currently being remodeled for modern living. The zigzag alleyway in front of the gate dates back to the great old Peking. No modern transport vehicle can pass through, one can only walk or use a bicycle.

Just a minute's walk from the gorgeous and traditional alley of Beijing Major Street, you can begin to sense the history and tradition of the Beijing Old Town. The retired elders, basking and chatting under the sunshine; chirping birds, congregating under the gate tower; Pekinese, tied on the wire pole; rabbits, kept inside the cages; and also an old Hutong public toilet, which was built 30 years ago.

Quiet alleyways, friendly eyes, a warm exchange of greetings within neighbors, and a simple and happy life atmosphere: all these remind you of life in Old Town Beijing.

At Beijing City Walls, renovations have been carried out in full accordance with the traditional taste and modern standards. Red lanterns and Chinese knots sit with a comprehensive functional public hall, free wireless internet access, clean guestrooms with cooling and heating air conditioning and big washrooms that conform to European and American standards.

Our staff have many years of experience, and they fully understand the variety of international cultures and different habits of living. They can provide many kinds of services.

You may also learn to write a few Chinese characters, sing one or two sentences of Peking Opera, paste a traditional kite or personally make and taste your own dumpling.

After spending five to ten minutes in the gorgeous and traditional Hutong (alley), you promptly approach the Forbidden City, the BeiHai Park (North Sea Park), and the HouHai tourist site. After a short cycle, you can also reach Tiananmen Square, WangFuJing Shopping Centre, The Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan), The Drum-Tower, Lama Temple and LiuLiChang (the antique calligraphy and painting street). Taking a taxi from the XiDan Aviation building and the Beijing Railway Station, where the regular airport bus is located, only costs about 1.5 Eur-2 Eur. Dozens of lines of buses in the surrounding areas assure your travel will be convenient and enjoyable.

City Walls — enjoy the unforgettable Beijing lifestyle.
