3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We spent 4 night here last week. For the money there are better choices in the area. The beds are soft and bouncy. When asked if they could do anything about it the answer was NO. Breakfast was average. Staff means well but was not overly enthusiastic.

Room Tip: Better choices are available for the same money.

Dear Marcopolofl6,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are sorry that your experience was not as expected. Our beds are actually Swedish imported DUX beds which are one of the top luxury brands in the market. This is the first complaint about our beds (if you look at past comments our beds are one of the most commented and praised feature of the hotel) and I am sorry there was nothing our staff could have done to accommodate you. We really try our best to please our guests and go out of their way to provide the best possible service.

Regarding our breakfast and guest services - we are always in a quest to improve and appreciate your comments. If you could give us some specific suggestions on how we can improve these aspects, please send us an email (see on top of the TripAdvisor page for a link). We would highly appreciate your input.

We hope you had a safe trip back home.

Best Regards,
Your Red Wall Garden Hotel Team

We spent nine wonderful days ( two separate stays) at this outstanding facility in the month of September. It was a very special trip to Beijing, all the way from Panama, as part of our annual wedding anniversary celebration. Needless to say, that the staff, facilities, and environment, at the Red Wall Garden Hotel, provided the perfect blend to make it a wonderful, to be remembered, stay. The degree of care; the charismatic approach of all employees; always with a friendly smile and aiming to assist; coupled with the concern of the managerial staff towards all around satisfaction for its customers, made it all happen. Our special thanks to Mr. Di; Mr. Hans, and the staff for their professionalism and their concern for guests at all times. The facilities were an experience in itself, and the location of the hotel afforded us the opportunity to see Beijing from the inside, and made it a perfect staging ground to visit all sites by metro. This will definitely be our home away from home when we visit Beijing again.

Just returned from a one week stay at the Red Wall Garden Hotel. I really can't say enough about the experiences there. The hotel is as described in all of the previous reviews. I only want to add my support for this hotel here. From the quiet the hotel can provide after a busy day to the support of the staff that go out of their way to make your experience one to remember. Would stay there again without hesitation. I was traveling for business but my family was there with me and they truly enjoyed their stay as well.

Room Tip: We upgrade to the Red Wall suite and it was worth having the extra room for my family.

We recently spent 9 nights at Red Wall Garden Hotel and were more than happy with our choice. This is a wonderful hotel and a true find. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished, and well air conditioned, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom had a luxurious rain shower. We enjoyed sitting in the lovely courtyard in the evenings. The location is very convenient (in a quiet Hutong in short walking distance from a subway station) and the staff is super helpful and friendly. This hotel is a gem. Highly recommended!

I went with my family at the Red Wall Garden Hotel a few weeks ago and I found it exceptional! I booked through the website www.epoquehotels.com, which has a very nice selection of boutique hotels. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was charming.
I hope I will be able to go back to Beijing one day and stay at this awesome place again!

We have just spent five nights in this lovely hotel. It is a great mix of modern convenience with Chinese character, but the best thing was being able to sit in the evening in the courtyard away from the bustle of the city and enjoy good food and excellent service. It is worth paying extra for the superior rooms if you would like a private balcony and some additional comfort. The staff were all unfailingly helpful and reacted positively to our requests.

On a short business trip from Europe I was looking for a calm, city-centered and ideally somehow traditional but safe place to stay for 2 nights. I found this place right in the heart of Beijing: the Red Wall Garden Hotel. It is in walking distance (15 min) from either the major political and administrative buildings as well the major tourist spots like the Forbidden City and the Tiananmen Square. It is set back from a typical very small street (taxi drivers usually had to ask around to find the spot) with a beautiful calm garden. The hotel itself is supposed to be built in a more traditional style (just 3 levels) with lots of wood and bambus, which is also reflected in the rooms: I was impressed by the nice shower with a wooden bath tub and the ancient-looking (but modern) phone: very nice ideas! The staff was very friendly and able to understand and speak English at a (for Beijing) good level. All in all I was more than happy to have found this place via Tripadvisor and I was not dissatisfied. I can personally recommend this place to stay. S. Berger from Hamburg, Germany
