“A most excellent residence with superb hosts in a classic Beijing hutong house.”
Reviewed 13 November 2017 for a stay in October 2015

Gladys Garden is by far my favourite place to stay in Beijing. The hosts Yang Zhi and David are exceptionally hospitable and their house is spacious. It is very close to metro and bus transport, scenic sights and restaurants. The district is full of history and character and the alleys nearby are fascinating to explore for a sample of new and old Beijing. I have enjoyed their hospitality three times and heartily recommend them for the discerning visitor.

“Right in the heart of it, and a quiet hideaway.”
Reviewed 13 November 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I had a fantastic time staying with Zhi and David. To start with they are located in an amazing part of Beijing, just wondering the surrounding streets and lake was brilliant. And if you want to go further the subway and bike hires are close by.
Staying with them in their home added to my experience. Zhi had all the information and local knowledge I needed and I enjoyed getting to know them in the short time I stayed.
Also, they have a wonderfully friendly cat!
I hope to come visit again.

“excellent homestay”
Reviewed 13 November 2017 for a stay in November 2016

I've already stayed 3 times at Gladys Garden, every november in 2014, 2015 and 2016 for 5 to 10 days each time
Very well situated in Houhai, near the lakes, close to a lot of restaurants and shops, bus stations and tube stations, in an area of preserved hutongs.
The house is quite comfortable with a lot of space everywhere, the kitchen being the heart of things with cookies always ready ! and the sitting room too ...
Breakfast is very good, generous (anglo-saxon but you can put your own Asian discoveries in the fridge)
I've already tried all bedrooms ! 2 downstairs fully en-suite (one with 2 beds) and 2 upstairs sharing a bathroom. Each has their own charm and are comfortable in winter with good heating, which makes sense as Beijing winters are serious ...
The hosts are very nice, helpful and ready to help for anything, from writing an itinerary in Chinese to coming with me to the pharmacy !
I'll definitely go back again next time I go to Beijing
to sum up : the situation is perfect, the hosts are great to meet and stay with, the rooms are big and comfortable and to top it all, you always meet interesting guests staying there for travel or work, so the solo traveller feels at home, all that for a very reasonable price !
