The Red Wall Garden Hotel proved to be one of the highlights in Beijing, China for so many reasons. The hotel offers a private car pick up from the airport for guest staying 3 nights or more; a great bargain since the airport is about an hour away. Upon arrival, the entire staff of the lobby greets you with a smile and a refreshing cup of tea. The process is quick, efficient and friendly. The facility is an intimate complex with great asian designs and colors to give a sense of nostalgic China. The rooms are bright, clean and spacious with windows that open out to the patio, giving a sensation of even more space. The Red Wall Garden Hotel is also centrally located where guests can walk less than 30 minutes to the Forbidden City (The Palace Museum) and Tianamen Square. During the evenings, a night market filled with Deep Fried Scorpions, Centipedes, Tarantulas, etc. is only a 12 minute walk away! Perhaps the greatest strength to this beautiful hotel is the high level of customer service in a city where manners are a cultural conflict. Every single staff member one comes across at the Red Wall Garden Hotel greets you and are happy to offer any assistance. We even had the opportunity to meet the Manager, Robert, on his day off who came in to help regulate renovations...on his day off!!! At this time I would like to compliment the office staff to the highest degree who were always friendly, efficient and all around pleasant to be around! I apologize if I am spelling her name incorrectly but Jin, a lovely young girl was always giving us great directions and suggestions. At one point she even pre-paid for a taxi cab for us on line, a position she did not have to put herself in! Thank you jin!!!!
Overall, the hotel is a great little place that is convenient to all the sites, the inclusive breakfast (Western and Eastern food) is delicious and the customer service could not be any better! Cabs may have a difficult time navigating to and through the narrow streets but the main street is just a couple of blocks away. I definitely recommend this hotel!
