If you don't want to stay in a large impersonal generic hotel then this place is for you. The Red Wall Garden offers tons of character, excellent staff, a good breakfast, clean environment and excellent location. We really enjoyed our stay here especially the care that the staff gave us. They spoke perfect English and were on hand to help us with everything we needed and wanted both in the hotel and planning our adventures in Beijing.
We took the free airport transfer which you get if you book 5 nights and the professional driver was there to greet us. On arrival the staff already knew about our needs. Before arrival they sent a survey asking for more info and it is worth filling it in so that they can make you as comfortable as possible. For example in the survey I asked for a soft bed (beds in China tend to be hard) and they provided the soft bed; we said we didn't eat meat and on arrival they went through all the options they could offer us and asked how they could treat us for our anniversary (fruit basket etc).
The room was clean and spacious, the furniture is all in good condition and beautiful. Perhaps the best thing about the hotel is that it is in a Hutong and has so much character.
I vary rarely have nothing bad to say about a hotel but this one gets top marks, I would definately stay there again.
