“Hidden Hutong”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Location is excellent and easy walk from subway. Decor is great and a refreshing change from the ubiquitous dirty modern look of Beijing.
Room was absolute beautiful with dark, hardwood floors, antique carpets and furniture and large windows.
Service is to be expected by a Chinese hotel, meaning no frills, nothing fancy and no extra effort. Staff was very pleasant, however, with good english.
Breakfast is good selection of western/Chinese.

Thank you for choosing Red Wall Garden hotel.

The hotel's location is excellent, short walking distance to Wangfujing and Forbidden City, butat the same time it is located far off from noisy streets which make it an excellent location for business travelers. All the rooms in our hotel are uniquely decorated and designed with antique furniture and make it a comfortable retreat for our guests.
We will definitely improve in offering a service with extra efforts which we hope you will experience on your next stay.
Best regards,
Red Wall Garden Hotel

We have stayed at several hotels in China, and I can tell you the star rating system is a very loose one, and certainly not comparable to the US ratings. HOWEVER, this little gem of a hotel was beyond in terms of friendlieness of staff, quality of rooms, the plush towels, great food, and the feeling of actually being in the hutong neighborhood. There were excellent personal touches: welcome card from manager, bowl of fruit in room on arrival, they knew our name in the restaurant!!! It was so convienently located for touring the city, and we will definately stay here again on the next visit to Beijing. The beds were comfortable, high end cosmetic and shower supplies, and I would encourage consideration of this hotel. Enjoy the experience of neighborhood and days gone by.

My girlfriend and I stayed here 2 weeks ago and had a excellent time in Beijing partly because of the location of this hotel and the great service we received. Its ideally located centrally with good access to most areas via the nearby subway station. The staff were very helpful with advising us on our holiday and made us feel very welcome. They even provided us with a welcome fruit bowl and Kinda eggs as it was easter weekend!

The hotel is probably not the most authentic chinese courtyard hotel but it definitely has many elements of chinese design with plenty of western comforts. The only issue we had was that our reservation did not have breakfast included even though we had booked this. This was easily rectified with no hassle immediately once I showed them the confirmation e-mail.

All in all, cannot fault the service we received and would recommend others stayed there.

I choose to stay at this hotel as it was recommended by some friends of mine living in Beijing. I liked the idea about staying in a traditional area of the city. After seeing the reviews about this hotel I was pretty excited to see something different than the usual chain hotels...and I must say: I loved every single aspect of the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and large, huge beds, really nice bathroom with rain shower. The hotel feels really “homey” and peaceful. And believe me – in Beijing you learn to appreciate a place like this. I would definitely come back and can highly recommend.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in March and it really was excellent. I was super impressed by the genuine friendliness of the staff and the rooms and beds were very good. Service and food at breakfast could not have been better. It made a perfect wind-down on the way back from a hectic business trip in Taiwan. I would definitely stay here again and would not bother looking for other hotels if ever staying in Beijing in the future.

I stayed at the Red Wall Garden Hotel and it was just great! I booked through my favorite boutique hotel website, epoquehotels.com which has an abundance of gorgeous properties to choose from that are so different than chain hotels. The staff at the hotel is incredibly friendly, they are always there to help. But the rooms was my favorite thing. They are comfortable and so traditional! Staying at the Red Wall Garden Hotel was truly a marvelous experience. It's also in a convenient location. I recommend it if you travel to Beijing.
