Elegantly placed within walking distance from the Forbidden City, the Beijing Redwall Hotel Forbidden City welcomes guests to get in touch with ancient wisdom, modern life and contemporary civilization of Beijing. The Jinshan and Beihai Royal Park, the most famous shopping center of Beijing-Wangfujing street are all within a few minutes walk. The guest in our hotel may jog in the imperial park in the morning and may watch the shadow of palace lantern in the palace canal. After a busy day, with friends drink wine at Shichahai Bar Street near the hotel and enjoy the serenity and the prosperity that mixes ancient history and modern culture of China The buildings of the hotel are arranged like a court which is similar to European hotel and is different from the normal hotel of high buildings. The construction area of the hotel is 14000 square meters. The hotel has 189 rooms of modern decoration or Chinese court style. The soft tone of the hotel, the elegant and bright lobby, the classic and exquisite decoration and natural& romantic design appear cultural tinge. The hotel makes the guest feel coming home. Beijing Redwall Hotel always obey the personalization and warmth service idea ,has strict and professional management group. The staffs of Redwall Hotel welcome your coming by passional and cordial hearts.

Fab Location, Clean and Near Dongsi Subway Stop

The hotel is an easy walk or even easier rickshaw ride from the Forbidden City, Beihai Park, Tiananmen Square, and lots of quaint restaurants. The nearest subway stop is Dongsi. The room was quite small, but very clean and had free wi-fi. Tea and an electric kettle were provided. There was ample hot water. Breakfast was not included in the hotel price but was available for about US$6. The hotel offered a prompt laundry service and there is a no-commission foreign currency exchange office on-site which was very convenient. I highly recommend for anyone on a budget looking for reliable, clean accommodation on a quiet street that still manages to be in the heart of lots of action.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't be afraid to take the subway in Beijing. It only costs 40 cents a ride. It's incredibly clean and all signs are marked in English.

Close to the Forbiden city

The Hotel was very close to the Forbiden City, was a few blocks and you get there. You can also go by a taxi if you don`t want to walk. It takes several minutes to get to the entrance. Besides this the Hotel is in a quiet place and the room was confortable and very clean.

Great place to stay.

This hotel is in a great location to see many sights as well in the center of the city. I stayed in a budget room and was very fine the Internet worked very well in my room. One CCTV English speaking TV world news station Chanel so, no HBO. Room very clean and quite as for the staff they were very helpful. I will stay here again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

You can find a 24 hour small grocery store just down the street(150ft) with a good selection and great prices. Bring your own cloth shopping bag from home it will save time at the checkout.

Very Happy

This hotel is in a very convenient location. I am a walker, and the hotel is near the Forbidden City, Hou Hai, and Wangfujing Street. Even if you are not a walker, you can catch a cab very easily right outside of the hotel. The closest subway stop is about a 15 minute walk, but on my way there one day, I happened upon an early morning market full of people and fruits and vegetables. Anyway, the hotel. It has a safe in the room, a refrigerator, and cable television. However, it does not have satellite so you will only get one English channel, CCTV9. That's ok, because I didn't go to China to watch tv! However, after a long day of sightseeing and shopping, an alternative to CCTV9 would be nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful especially since I attempted to use my limited Chinese whenever possible. Also, there is a beautiful hutong right next to the hotel that has a few restaurants, a foot massage place, and some street vendors. Best of all, Jingshan Park is ONE BLOCK away and you can go there early in the morning and see people exercising, doing tai chi, and enjoying the view of the Forbidden City from above. If I had a ton of money sure I'd like to stay at a fancy hotel, but this place exceeded my expectations especially after reading some of the negative reviews. This hotel is fine for a single traveler or even a couple. Kids may not like the lack of tv channel choices. And the beds are hard, but having to adjust to the major time shift does not ever afford a restful sleep I suppose. Two thumbs up.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

DINNER: Get in a taxi and go to Quan Ju De's Hepingmen location. Don't go to the Wangfujing branch - too touristy. The Hepingmen branch is located in a huge ballroom with a stage and makes you feel like you are having dinner in the 1960s - with Mao's entrance imminent! Seriously, the duck is great at both branches, but Hepingmen is more authentic. Don't miss this restaurant.
