“A Nice Little Escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for a few days to experience the Spring Festival. This is a nice little courtyard hotel, which is a nice change of pace from the usual high rise hotels that one would stay in. The ambiance is great, from the front gate to the uneven wood flooring in my room. One thing to remember though is that if you choose this option, you sacrifice location as it is a bit of a walk from some places, and taxis may not know where to go. The service was very nice, and I had a personalized welcome card and information sheet upon arrival. The bed was a bit shaky, but the mattress was amazing! The only problem I had with cleanliness was in the shower. They place a clear glass pane against the wall, but the glass is not flush against the wall. This caused a few bugs to crawl in and stay there - not something you want to see while taking a shower or using the bathroom. The room was also a bit chilly, and the walls are quite thin - but I was so tired from walking around all day that I never had a problem going to sleep. All in all it was a nice time that was different from the usual hotel experience!

Room Tip: When walking to the subway, do not cross the street and go into the closer stop, keep walking and us...

We stayed in Red Wall Garden Hotel recently during our short visit to Beijing. We were very impressed by how beautiful the hotel is. The staff are incredibly helpful and lovely, we felt very welcomed through the whole stay. It is also conveniently located in the heart of Beijing, with a walking distance of 10 mins to Wangfujing. We would definitely come back to stay in this lovely hotel. Highly recommended!

This hotel was the one shining light in my entire trip to Beijing. I stayed here for five nights while I traveled around Beijing sightseeing in some of the worst pollution in recent months. They picked me up from the airport even though it was close to 1am when I got through customs. The hotel is so beautiful and immaculate, it hurt my eyes. The decor was tasteful and not over the top. I've never slept so well and it's location in Shijia Hutong is quaint and great for exploring. It was conveniently located near the Dengshikou subway station and Wangfujing Street. I felt very safe in the hotel as they locked the courtyard doors each night (however you might get locked out if you come back later than midnight :/).
However the best part of this hotel is the people. The receptionists were helpful and responded to all my queries either in person or over the phone. The house cleaners, although I never saw them were very meticulous and arranged everything to perfection. One day I came back to find my little traveling mascot, Pingu had been placed on my pillow :) However, my favourite people of all were the waiters and managers in the hotel restaurant. As a solo traveler I unfortunately didn't dare going out for dinner, so I ate at the hotel every night. The waiters and especially the female managers were very attentive and very kind to me. They were so gracious in everything they did and I am very grateful. The breakfast staff (buffet breakfast is free if you stayed a certain amount of nights) were also very polite and friendly.
I can't thank the Red Wall Garden Hotel enough for making my stay so enjoyable. They were indeed an Oasis in the chaos and smog that is Beijing. Only staying here would make me consider going back to Beijing again!

Great hotel, very clean and more than enough facilities. Staff were great and conveniently spoke English. Recommend Great Wall tour through the hotel and MTR is round the corner. Supermarket is 15min walk and there's lots of shops all round, even the high end department stores. Google maps was not working however Apple maps worked perfectly. Enjoy

Me and my wife first time travel to beijing and we decided to stay something different, after we research and read other travellers review, so we choose Redwall Garden Hotel...we stay there 5 nights and it is fantastic, the decor, design is very classic and we love it so much, the location is bit hard to find it, some of the taxi driver may not know there is a hotel in Shijia Hutong but the Dengshikou subway station is only 5mins walking distance..we glad that we got the right choice and also spend our valentine day, even my birthday as well. One thing that make me feel so warm that a staff send me a greeting card with a piece of birthday cake and fruits plate when i back from sightseeing..i definitely will recommend to my friends and family glad that we got the right choice and also spend our valentine day, even my birthday as well.

If you want to have a taste of China and avoid the big and boring international hotels, then book the Red Wall garden hotel. In a small and traditional old street but very close to the center and the subway you will be extremely well received by a competent and friendly staff. Rooms have an exotic flavor but with all the modern facilities. We loved it!

Part of a last-minute business trip to Xiamen, I spent 4 nights in Beijing at this wonderful hotel. Located on one of the few Hutong still standing after Beijing's rapid development, within walking distance to Tiananmen Sq & Forbidden City.. Staff were extremely gracious and accommodating, adding an additional night when flights changed, arranging a side trip to the Great Wall, providing directions on the Metro, and even translating a complaint to the local police chief to helped sort out a Tea House Scam (see TA site). So much better than the impersonal service of the large western chain hotels. I wish I spoke more than a few words of Mandarin with which to express of my gratitude, but even this would be unnecessary as they all converse in English very well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Room Tip: All rooms will be quiet because the hotel is off of the main avenues.
