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.

Everything cost money

This hotel is in a nice spot. About a 15 min walk from the Forbidden City. The room was pretty good. They actually bumped us up from the economy room when we got there. However, I paid for our stay with my discover card and when we got to the hotel they require a 500 yen deposit either by cash or credit card. They didn't accept my discover card so I had 500 less yen to enjoy my trip with (we got the deposit when we checked out). Everything at this hotel cost money including water and even coffee in the room. The continental breakfast that I thought was included was not and cost us another 38 yen a person and it was not very good. The dinner we got was pizza fries and two drinks which cost us 287 yen so if you are staying at this hotel bring your own water or buy it outside the hotel and do not eat there.

Great location, hard beds

Hotel was a decent value. We would have been quite happy except for one thing--the beds were extremely hard. It was like sleeping on box springs without a mattress. Not sure who could be comfortable on those beds! But location was great (close to Forbidden City) and staff was helpful. If you like a firm bed...very firm, then you'll be happy.

Average

The carpeting was older and worn, but the room and bathroom were generally clean. The travel time to the airport from this hotel would be about an hour +/- 30 minutes depending upon traffic. Though I only spent about 6 hours in the room, the price to value at $40 was adequate for a last minute reservation.

so-so

The location was great but the hotel itself was nothing special. We had the food and it waas horrible and the tour was a waste of time. The room was a bit small but it was clean and had everything we needed.
