Red Capital Residence

Located in a 200-year-old courtyard residence, this boutique hotel moves the historic theme forward to the Liberation era, with rooms and communal spaces decked out with Communist antiques and Mao memorabilia. The five suites are fit for a Communist Party bigwig, with some of Beijing’s most unique interior design, and the bar is set in a converted underground bomb shelter.

The Orchid

Hip and perfectly located in a lane just a short stroll from the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, the Orchid is a slice of wood-floored, design magazine modernism in the heart of old Beijing. Rooms are compact but calming, with contemporary designer furnishings. There’s even a roof terrace with views over the hutongs.

Jingshan Garden Hotel

A cute budget hotel with calm, comfy rooms set around a similarly serene courtyard, Jingshan Garden Hotel is in easy striking distance of the Forbidden City. It feels just like you'd imagine a Chinese hotel to feel, down to the odd piece of old-fashioned lacquered furniture in the rooms. It has a decent restaurant too.

Double Happiness Beijing Courtyard Hotel

Most guests agree with the name when they stay at this low-key but friendly hotel in the lanes near the Lama Temple. The small, simple rooms come with Chinese-style furniture, TVs and a computer for checking your email, plus an extra serving of homespun charm, but it can get a little cold here in winter.

Courtyard 7

Set in a beautifully renovated 300-year-old courtyard home, this is the most reasonably priced heritage hotel in Beijing. Rooms come with traditional Chinese furniture and all the modern comforts including flatscreen TVs, free Wi-Fi, underfloor heating and plush en-suite bathrooms. It's hidden on a back alley in the chic Nanluoguxiang area.

DuGe Courtyard Boutique Hotel

Housed in a wonderful, Qing-dynasty courtyard home (formerly home to one of Emperor Xianfeng's ministers), this unique Beijing hotel blends tradition and modernity in equal measures. Rooms are trendy, yet elegant, and full of modern amenities, but still romantically old-fashioned. The location, amongst the old hutong alleys of Nanluoguxiang, couldn’t be better.
