My boyfriend and I (late 20s) stayed at the RWG for 3 nights in mid September 2014 and loved it! The centre courtyard and buildings were so quiet and welcoming after the hectic drive from the airport. The standard room was a really decent size and the bed was plush and offered a wonderful night's sleep. The bathroom was well equipped with a rain shower that had fantastic water pressure. The furnishings are all in a traditional style, but comfortable and very clean. The courtyard was a fantastic place to relax and enjoy a drink as well as a meal, the only problem being that people were allowed to smoke whilst others ate, but that is very common in China. The food was delicious and we ate here 2 of the 3 nights (the first because we were so tired we didn't want to leave the hotel and the third because the meal we had when we ventured out on the 2nd night was very average). The staff speak very good English and were very accommodating (extra pillows within minutes and help choosing items on the menu I could eat - I'm allergic to shellfish). The location is very central. 5 mins walk to the subway, 10-15mins from one of the main shopping streets and 20-30 mins walk to Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City. Overall I would recommend to anyone looking for something a little different but still high quality.
