Luxurious Beijing: Cours Et Pavillons
Old and new in perfect harmony, 21st-century boutique hotel in ancient hutong

You can get a taste of the splendor of China's past in a stunning 21st century renovation in Cours Et Pavillons. The exquisite boutique hotel just opened in 2015 in a meticulously renovated mansion in the old part of Beijing.
Cours Et Pavillons, main lobby
A traditional hutong (laneway) mansion is built around a garden courtyard, as is Cours Et Pavillons. The renovation is a true marriage of authentic Chinese culture and contemporary style, creating seven courtyard residences.Giving visitors a glimpse of ancient China, Cours et Pavillons is brimming with character and wrapped up with exceptional service. With just seven rooms across two traditional courtyards, the hotel has a truly exclusive ambience.
Cours Et Pavillons, superior room
Step through the gates and into a peaceful, private world. The grounds are temple-like, and the interiors dotted with antiques from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Expect everything from carved wooden furniture and traditional wall prints to designer décor and Jacuzzis in some suites. When it's time for dinner, there is a fine dining French restaurant on site where you can enjoy contemporary gastronomy in time-honoured surroundings. Round-the-clock butler service and attentive personnel provide upscale service.
Cours Et Pavillons, deluxe room
Wei Ja Hu Tong (also seen as Weija Hutong) is one of the older, traditional style lanes in Beijing, and it's an area that has seen its fortunes rise and fall over the decades. Nowadays, it's an up and coming area of the city, with the Zhangzizhong Lu subway stop on the No. 5 line nearby.
Cours Et Pavillons, restaurant
Close to Beijing's cultural gems, yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle, Cours et Pavillons is ideally positioned. Visit The Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square for a glimpse into China’s past. Or travel to The Great Wall for the day to see this world-famous monument up close. A little closer to home, the hutong are the perfect place to experience Chinese communities first-hand.

The Rooms
Cours Et Pavillons, open kitchen
Push back the door and you’ll find a beautiful blend of old and new. Wei Jia was once a cluster of hutong houses. Today, the traditional architecture has been infused with 21st-century style – from sumptuous beds to luxury bathroom products. Xi Guan takes the contemporary touches up a notch, with décor from Italian designers. To celebrate local culture and old customs, the hotel will bring incense to light your room.

The Food
At Cours et Pavillons, contemporary gastronomy is served in time-honoured surroundings. In Wei Jia Courtyard, chefs make use of fresh, seasonal ingredients and draw on classical French influences in an imaginative menu. It's haute cuisine steeped in local culture, served up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and afternoon tea, which comes highly recommended.
