"Oasis in the City"
Our first time in Beijing and we were a little unsure of what to expect staying in a Hutong at a Courtyard style hotel, but we were very pleased with our choice. The Red Wall Garden Hotel is wonderful, the location is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful and we could not have made a better choice to explore the city. My wife and I stayed six nights at the end of May and were fortunate enough to have great weather so we enjoyed dinner and drinks in the courtyard on more than one occasion. We booked a premiere room overlooking the courtyard, which is exactly what we had requested. Some of the other rooms facing outside seemed to have more natural light, but we were very happy with our room. I would suggest adding a brighter interior lamp in the room as it does get a lot of shade, but certainly not an essential item. The room was huge, we had a large king size bed, two full size armchairs, big screen TV, not that we watched any TV, after all that was not why we went to Beijing, and after a full days walking and sightseeing we were ready to sleep. The bathroom and shower area was very comfortable and the hotel had provided everything you would need from daily bottles of water and a minibar to a hairdryer and a very effective air conditioning system. Our room rate included breakfast and I would certainly recommend this option. We had Chinese and western options available each day and a chef to prepare omeletes and/or eggs. Overall very good quality and a great breakfast room. We did eat at the hotel on a couple of occasions and again the menu provides good options, we opted for the Chef selections one day, which was a sampler of a few different dishes and a BBQ Duck dish the next time. They were very well prepared and presented and tasted great. We prefer to eat out of the hotels we stay in most times, but the Courtyard Bistro was doing great business and I can see why, thoroughly enjoyed the food. The hotel is well positioned for Dengshoukou Subway Station. The hotel provide us with a loan of subway cards that we added money to and used most days. Getting around Beijing by subway is pretty straightforward and not too crowded. I would highly recommend this option as Beijing is such a vast city that walking to some of the tourist sites just takes too long and it does take a while to get oriented. I would suggest investing in a detailed street map to make life easier if you are walking. The map provided by the hotel is a good overall view of the city but you really don’t get an understanding of scale until you start to walk the streets. Finally a big thank you to all of the staff, from the front desk to the restaurant staff and the cleaning services. Not everyone speaks fluent English, but enough of the front desk staff so that you can get answers to anything you want and without exception everyone at the hotel was helpful and friendly. We fully enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Red all Garden Hotel to anyone wanting to enjoy and explore Beijing in a relaxed atmosphere.
"A true gem of a hotel"
This was our first hotel on our tour of China, and it by far exceeded expectations. Such a beautiful hotel it had a nice homely feel about it. All the staff was very helpful and most spoke English to a high standard. We had a deluxe room overlooking the courtyard. The room was large and very well appointed with one of the biggest beds we've ever seen and a mix of very nice traditional Chinese furniture. The courtyard was used for outside dining, with traditional music entertainment 4 nights a week. The choice of food was quite substantial and the quality was very good. The breakfasts were very nice, mainly Chinese dishes which we really enjoyed. The staff throughout were both friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for anything more. To top everything else, my wife celebrated her 50th birthday during our stay. We returned from a day visiting the wall to find some cake and a birthday message. A nice finishing touch to a very nice stay. Location was also excellent with many shops and restaurants and not far from the subway.
"Very cozy and comfortable"
Excellent location in central Beijing and close to metro stops and major shopping mall. However, this is in a gentrified Hutong which has only two or three story buildings. The gem of the place is the central courtyard which makes this place a boutique hotel. Wonderful courtyard with a nice restaurant. We stayed here on arrival from US and during our stay in Beijing. The family room was quite large with two separate bedrooms. Air conditioning was good and breakfast buffet was outstanding. Highly recommend this place.
Quiet, lovely oasis in bustling metropolis of 25 million (population of Australia!) in old part of Beijing in a narrow lane way but close to restaurants/shops, around corner from Regent Beijing and walking distance (30 mins) to Forbidden City etc . Needed to sort out issues of prepaid Visa card for deposit account but perhaps cash would have worked better if no standard credit card available. My sister tried the timber made bath but said not comfortable. Otherwise, delightful Chinese antique amenities and pleasant staff. Note: Watch out for dodgy taxi drivers passing out fake 100 RMB notes without the vertical silver metal strip - refer pic.
"Home Away from Home"
We loved this place. It was quiet, easy access to the subway and the Airport Shuttle at the end of the street great location. Rooms were big, big comfy big with a great breakfast. Beautiful courtyard and often we would come back find little treats in our room. If you after a smaller intimate hotel with personal service this is your place On a side note if you do get the Airport Shuttle it does go to all the terminals in the order of terminal 2, 1 then 3 at 25 Yuan each.
