“Great location, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

We have stayed already twice at the Red Wall. The staff are all delightful and very helpful. They truly go out of their way to help. The location is great very close to the bus stop with many buses to many destinations. Taxi are plentiful, however beware! If raining you will not get a taxi, we had to give up once, after over one hour wait. And it is difficult to get a taxi after 6pm, rush hour.
The hotel itself has great variety of rooms. Obviously the better rooms are more expensive but spacious and comfortable. All rooms (except in the Chinese section, cheapest) are of good size, but some look a bit old fashion and drab. Beware, some rooms have no windows.
But generally it's a good hotel to stay at as long as you put the price for a business room.
You can change your money in the hotel, the same rate as the bank, excellent service.

Room Tip: Business rooms are the best bet

I found staying at the Red Wall hotel to be a bad idea. doors to the bathroom did not close without some force.
The wash hand basin was cracked.
The Shower curtain was way too short therefore the bathroom would be flooded after a shower.
The bathroom itself was far too small for comfort.
The double bed took up two thirds of the room so no space for sitting or relaxing for a friend.
The young staff were treated like slaves.
It was a great area, near transport and shopping.
It was a wonderful price, which may be the reason fore the poor quality.
If you like a busy crowded area, you would love this situation.
I would not go back there again, but it may be OK for a very short stay.

Room Tip: Pay a little more but don't expect too much

I had to go on a pop-up business trip to Beijing and did not have a lot of time to research my hotel options. I stumbled upon the Red Wall online and decided to give it a shot. While it is certainly not comparable to a Western-style high-end boutique hotel, the fantastic location and friendly staff made up for teh lack of some of the amenities in the rooms.
Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for Linda at the reception - speaks perfect English :-)

I stayed in this hotel for one week. The rooms are average. They are very small, have hard beds, and the water temperature constantly changes while showering. I recommend that you do not eat or buy drinks in either of the restaurants on site as it is extremely expensive and low quality. The bellhops are very friendly, but constantly ask you to take tours. My boyfriend and I went to see the Acrobatics Show that we booked through a bellhop and it was fantastic! The staff at the front desk are not very friendly and tried to charge us extra money for a towel that "went missing." The location is convenient and it is about a 10-minute walk to the nearest metro. I would not stay here in the winter, though, as the heater did not work. Also the spa is very overpriced and also not great quality.

Room Tip: The Chinese-style rooms have a bit more decoration and I think they're more comfortable.

I have spended at this hotel 4 nights and I can say it is placed in a good location very near of the forbidden city. Rooms are ok and bed is confortable. I have found the staff friendly .Taxi from airport is arround 100RMB that meens 17USD. The bad point of the hotel is the breakfast wich is oufull in my opinion. Never had such a bad breakfast in my life. Anyway You can eat in another place not such a big problem. 50m away is the street food and some shops.

Stayed here for four night visit to Beijing in Feb 2013. This is a clean and cheap base for staying centrally at a reasonable price. The room that we had was tidy, warm ( in winter this is really important in Beijing!!) and cleaned every day, The main thing that this place has going for it is its location, close to the forbidden city and within walking distance of much of central Beijing. Breakfast here was cheap and basic, but filling. The staff at the hotel were friendly and most of them spoke a reasonable level of English. Free Wi Fi in Lobby worked well. Dont pay anything like the advertised rack rate though!!!

This is my 1st trip to China & I noticed that almost everyone doesn't speak a word of English. You would think if you're a vendor selling in a "Tourist Area" you would know at least a little bit, but that's not the case in Beijing. But this hotel has such friendly & helpfull staff that it just makes your day. There English is the best but they know enough to get by & help you. (Especially the manager) As far as the hotel goes... It's good, clean, great location & clean neighbourhood. The location is what makes this hoter great, walking distance from Forbidden City & Tianamen Square (20 mins), Wangfuging Street (25 mins), Jingshan Park(5 mins), Behai Park (10 Mins), about 10 mins bus ride to the Bell & Drum tower (Take the 124, cost 1 Yuen) also you can take a direct bus to the zoo (Take the 103) The key thing is they keep my room clean everyday & they are available everytime I need help on anything. If I had to nit pick to say anything negative about this place, the only thing I would say is the rooms are small, but who cares if your here in Beijing you spend very little time in your room anyways...

Also... This hotel has a GREAT PRICE
