Not sure what to add to all the positive comments. Close to everything, yes. We loved returning to RWG every day after being 'out there' exploring. Shija Hutong is a lovely tree-lined street, and every day we turned off the main street toward our hotel, sighed 'ahh home'. Staff lovely, helpful (for us, especially Yao). The courtyard was an ideal place to relax every afternoon for drinks, and also for breakfast each day. We had a deluxe room upstairs overlooking the hutong, so this may not be suitable for those with mobility issues or wishing to have courtyard views or balconies; however again, very peaceful. The beds were comfortable, and shower hot & strong -2 things always important for me in a hotel. A couple of small things -this is not a negative -although the hotel is by no means tatty,we thought the whole place may be due for a refresh paint soon, & perhaps renewal of grout in the bathrooms. Carpet up the stairs was also showing a bit of wear. nevertheless, we will definitely recommend RWG.
