Loved staying at Daniels listing! I came to Beijing for a couple days on my own and was welcomed by the incredibly lovely staff at Fly By Knight Courtyard. Breakfast in the mornings were always delicious. The room is as pictured - clean, warm and simple. All that you need. Located a bit hidden in one of Beijing's Hutongs - staying here really gave me an authentic taste for being a local in Beijing. In combination with the friendly staff, clean accommodations and extra perks like kung fu lessons by Daniel himself, makes this spot a must stay when you need a comfortable and familiar place the stay. Thanks again and looking forward to coming back !!
if you are looking for a friendly hostel centrally located in the sprawling city of beijing then fly by knight might be the place for you.
with very helpful staff - thanks jasmine, jewel and yem: you made my stay much more enjoyable - who you will need if like me you have no mandarin, fly by knight is friendly and comfortable but it has it's drawbacks: it isn't cheap (you could get a 3-4 star hotel room, but without the character); it's a bit of a walk to transit and they haven't got a system with taxis to call one for you; it's a bit knocked around the edges and breakfast was pretty ordinary (I stayed in plenty of plush but soulless places for $70 in shanghai and nanjing which were significantly better value).
for friendly staff and a chance to meet fellow travellers fly by night hits the mark. as a hotel commensurate to its price I'm not sure if it does. the hunting it is in isn't too pleasing to the eye either.
but the girls deserve full praise for their efforts and English in a city where not much is spoken. thanks, sorry if my review is a bit harsh but it honestly reflects my experience
Interesting location but taxi drivers can have trouble finding it. I stayed there because I didn't want to stay in a faceless hotel room and in that respect it fitted the bill. The staff are lovely, speak good english and really helpful. My only gripe is that the rooms weren't cleaned at all during the three days I was there. Given that its the same price as a hotel, I felt this should have been done.
We really enjoyed our time at the FlyByKnight hostel. The neighborhood was great, with easy access to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
Our room was basic, but very clean and comfortable, and the staff was all extremely nice and helpful.
Thank you Fly By Knight and Daniel: FBK went out of their way to ensure that they could accommodate me for the length of my stay. The staff are very professional, and experts at making you feel at home, comfortable and informed about local food, events, sights, etc. When it started to get really cold, they put effective heaters in all the rooms (very cosy!). The local mobile that was provided (while I didn't use it) was a comfort (to know I could call anytime I needed to). The rooms (I stayed in a double with bath, double and single rooms) were comfortable and very clean, and the beds were very comfortable- shampoo and bodywash is provided too. It's nice to have the free bottles of water when you arrive. Breakfast was great each day - and as others have commented, having breakfast available makes it quite communal and enjoyable to swap stories, etc, a nice start to the day. The price of the accommodation is good value. The kung fu lessons looked great (wish I stayed a little longer to join in), and the puppies are just sweeties! FBK, is located in the hutongs, and because of this is lovely and quiet even during the day - if you're in the courtyard near the communal room, it can get a little noisy if other guests aren't careful to keep it down when it's late at night (or early in the morning), so if you're a light sleeper ask for a room in the back. FBK is very well located - really close to the subway, and within walking distance of a whole lot of things to do and see, and the staff are always happy to provide advice, information and generally have a chat.
Wonderful location in the heart of hutongs and so convenient. Beautiful clean and comfortable room. The girls at reception were super helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay here again the next time we are back in Beijing. Kelvin and Shaun
We had a wonderful week at "Fly by Knight". The room although small was comfortable and so was the bed. The bathroom had all the conveniences required. Breakfast which was included was satisfactory.. The location was excellent for walking to restaurants and subway. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The lovely courtyard layout with tables and chairs was a great place to meet other guests from all over the world and sharing experiences.
Thank you again Daniel, Maggie, Maureen and Salena you made our first visit to Beijing very special. We loved playing with Obama and Wen Jiabao, don't spoil them too much!
A really nice place! The place to stay in Beijing, in surroundings perfect to get a feeling of the city and how it used to be not that many years ago. It was a clean, really nice room, with a very comfortable bed. The place is really tranquil and peceful. The staff is very nice and helpful. Fly by Knight Courtyard even has really good coffee.
I stayed with my 6-year-old daughter and she loved the place.
If we come back to Beijing we will stay here again. I am so happy I found this place.
A dream week in a welcoming place with a great team always there to help and advise you.
If you want to find the old beijing with all modern comforts, don't hesitate to book here. You will be delighted as we have been ourselves.
A big friendly hello to Daniel and his team.
Daniel was very friendly and helpful. His place was clean and very cool. Its hard to find, even with the map, but our taxi driver eventually found it.
I would highly recommend it if you like something a little more interesting than the run of the mill hotel. I would note that this is a hostel style property with a nice sense of community with it's shared areas.
