“Great small hotel in handy location”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

We spent five nights in this neat courtyard hotel, located near great shopping, the Subway and a short walk to the Forbidden City. Staff and service were excellent. Their restaurant has a good menu with daily Chinese specialities.

Red Wall Garden is the perfect place to feel at home right in the centre of bustling Beijing. We spent 5 nights there after reading great reviews on Tripadvisor and it definitely lived up to expectation. It is conveniently located and peaceful with excellent service. Our deluxe room was spacious with a very comfortable bed so we could spread out after long days exploring the city. The hotel's traditional hutong heritage lends it charm and character. We spent many evenings relaxing in the courtyard, listening to traditional Chinese music and sipping cocktails. (If you're feeling adventurous then ask Lily, one of the waitress, to make you one of her own special cocktails. You will be pleasantly surprised!)

Dear Tinawho,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our boutique hotel. I have placed this firmly on our staff noticeboard as everybody here at the hotel very much appreciates this.

You might be interested to know that Lilly has come up with another fine cocktail which we are going to introduce on our new cocktail list over the next few weeks!!!.

I am glad you made it home safe to Sydney and do hope to be able to welcome you back to Shijia Hutong and our hotel.

Warmest wishes

We spent 4 nights at the Red Wall Garden. The hotel is small and quiet and a perfect place to return to after a day sightseeing. The decor of the common areas is tasteful and with a beautiful modern chinese feel. We were upgraded prior to arrival to a suite on the 3rd floor which was comprised of a common foyer and 2 rooms, perfect for the 3 of us. only complaint is that the floors creaked so it was hard to tiptoe around in the night. The beds were very comfortable in the main bedroom and the chinese style bed in the living room seemed hard, but my 81 year old dad found it very comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast very much, a good selection and quality. The waitresses were very friendly so we always enjoyed our time in the restaurants and in the courtyard for drinks. The weather was great so it was perfect to sit in the courtyard in the evening. Good area, just a block from shops, restaurants and a supermarket (albeit completely chinese .... funny about that!), but we were happy to stay in as we were so comfortable at the Red Wall Garden and sightseeing in Beijing is tiring!.

This hotel had all the comforts we needed, plus lots of authentic character. The girls at the front desk were very helpful for directions, restaurant recommendations, calling a taxi, and very good English communication skills. They even helped us get into a room with a bathtub. On our second day we did a lot of walking and really needed a soak in a tub. They were all booked up for the night, but got us a room with a tub as soon as one became available - I was quite impressed. The restaurant was a good option for dinner, service could be a little slow, but not a problem when your on holidays. Breakfast buffet was very good, a little repetitive, but filling and good. Beds were comfortable and maid service was efficient. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a comfortable hotel with boutique character.

We spent 7 days at the Red Wall Garden Hotel and it made for a great base to explore Beijing and a welcome oasis after a long day's sightseeing. The rooms (we had a deluxe) were spacious, clean and well appointed and above all, very quiet! The hotel has a lovely courtyard where you can relax, have a drink or indeed breakfast or dinner. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Booking direct from their website entites you to a free airport pickup which is an added bonus. We'd happily stay here again when visiting Beijing...

I concur with all of the previous reviews that this is a standout on many levels.
Take the tour through the hotel on a private car with tour guide Lilly.
Robert, one of the managers had a great idea: instead of leaving the hotel at 9:00, have al leisurely breakfast, read the complimentary newspaper and enjoy the solace of the courtyard.
Leave at 11:00, stop if you wish at the silk factory, and tea ceremony ( no one there either) and arrive at the Great Wall around 2:30. Unreal !!! All of the buses are gone, no one on the wall, it was spiritual. Its your tour go when and where you want, just don't follow the crowds.
Robert thanks again you made our trip to Beijing.
Also recommend Bike Beijing also unbelievable way to see the inner city from a bike.
I also want to thank the incredible staff: Ada, Icey, Yolanda, and Coco and many others to make us feel special and your valued guests.

Room Tip: Our room faced down a hutong over the police station where they got together-interesting

I have just returned after 12 days at this hotel and found it to be excellent. Sometime you visit a hotel and are reluctant to comment as there is a chance of others finding out how good it actually and thus taking up bookings for when you revisit. Well this is one of those, but being fair, I feel the need to comment

I have never stayed in a cleaner hotel, and that includes Hiltons etc. The staff are extremely friendly and bend over backwards to assist. The majority of them have a some English, and also understand sign/say.
The location is really convenient for Metro (and Buses if you are brave). The food is a decent mix of Western and traditional, with good advice being given for those wanting to eat further afield. The pick up and drop off for the hotel was well signed....
Room size ?? Spacious is an understatement

Only problem I found was that some floorboards squeak, but come on...Is that a real problem ?. Richard the manager was present on several occasions and his attitude had the correct balance of friendliness and professionalism. Lilly, I think everyone took a shine to her speaking 5 languages and also seemed to keep the right balance.
All in all a great experience
