We did not stay at the this Residence but was there for an evening night out. Located quite obscure from the rest of the common hotels/residences, this one is located in a courtyard in the Dongsi District, which is a preserved heritage site. Preserved in its old traditional Chinese style, antique if you may say, it has 5 rooms only...... More

My wife and myself stayed here for 4 nights in June and loved this place for it's decor and very friendly staff. It is nicely situated in one of the old blocks in the city of Beijing. We stayed in the Mao suite and also got the opportunity to see the old bomb shelter, converted to a bar (which i... More

We had a lovely stay. Having lived in Beijing in the 1980'ies, it was wonderful to be back in the Hutongs, which are now under threat from developers. Moreover, for anyone with a bit of interest in the history of 20th century China, it will be a great experience. Sure, there is a bit of dust on Zhou Enlai's personal... More

A unique experience in an authentic and original Beijing Hutong house that enriched our China adventure. The staff were helpful and always present. The rooms were quaint, and as such not the most comfortable, but that probably added to the authentic experience. The rooms could have been cleaner. All in all, it was an unforgettable experience.

We just spent three nights at the Red Capital Residence and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is not a five star luxury property, but that is not why you stay here. It feels like olden day China, yet you are only walking distance from the new shops, restaurants and subway. We had a few issues with a cold... More

This hotel, in an old courtyard residence that once belonged to Mao's minister of defense, is for those who want some adventure in their travel experience. The setting is mostly original and authentic, not for those who want to feel like they could be anywhere in the world in a cookie cutter luxury hotel that insulates you from the local... More

The Red Capital gave us a taste of the 'old china'. It was very atmospheric and passing through the large red doors you felt a sense of travelling into the past. We were staying there during the 60th celebrations of the PRC. We had an amazing time and the Red Capital added to our experience. It is NOT a luxury... More

During our honey moon for which we traveled from Moscow to Beijing on the train, we chose this hotel to finish the journey. We have been very happy with our stay there.
