We stayed in Red Lantern House West Yard (mind you, this is the little sister of Red Lantern House!) for 5 nights in December/ January. At first we couldn't believe there would be a guesthouse tucked away in this crappy looking alleyway.. but yes, there was. Behind the big wooden doors there is the guesthouse.
The receptionist spoke well English but didn't seem to interested in us. She was helpful when we asked, but not very welcoming.
It was terribly cold this time of year, so we were happy to discover that our room was warm, at least. The heater was blowing like crazy and we got 3 blankets.
To get there we had to cross different houses and little outside-areas. Everewhere blankets were hanging to prevent cold getting in. Very charming but : oooh.. if there would be a fire to break out - I wouldn't wnat to be here..... you'd be trapped.
Our room was tiny, and very colourful. Very colourful. I liked it but my bf felt a bit claustrofobic.
The walls are VERY thin.. but we were lucky, cuz there were hardly any tourists when we were here.
The thing we loved both: the lamp/heater in the shower!
The location of this guesthouse is OK. It's quite near to the metro, from where you can go everywhere.
