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.

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.

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.

THIS IS NOT A 4-STAR HOTEL

[...] By any standard, this is no more than a 2-star hotel. Filthy, stained carpets, mildew on the bathroom floor and in shower, outdated furniture and fixtures, no working phone or refrigerator (although the phone & fridge were fixed upon request). This was in an upgraded Executive room![...]

redwall hotel in beijing

The staff was friendly and helpful. They also spoke English. The bellboys were nice enough to give us directions to stores and restaurants. Awesome little restaurant down the street- very cheap. Make sure you select nonsmoking when you book otherwise you may get one of the rooms that smell like cigarettes, but the staff was good about giving us a new nonsmoking room. My friends couldn't change theirs since there were no more left, but they were able to find some spray that got rid of the smell. The beds are VERY firm. Our rooms did not have a tub or shower stall. There was a curtain for the shower area and a drain in the floor by the toilet. Water spread everywhere after a shower and the pool of water almost reached our bathroom door. I had to use towels to mop it up so I did slip when I was at the sink and mirror. The maids were kind of hesitant about giving extra towels to my friend. I think they might have thought that there were extra people in our room or something.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

You can catch a bus if you don't want to walk the 2 or 3 large blocks to the subway. Check out Lynne's store in the pearl market(Hong Qiao Market #4312). Great prices, nice staff, and beautiful authentic fresh and sea water pearls.

Good location, staff speak English

The hotel is conveniently located close to the Forbidden City, though it's about a 20 minute walk from the nearest subway station. The staff were friendly and spoke English (a plus not found at every hotel!) and were able to help make arrangements for transportation. The rooms were small, with the same hard beds common throughout China, but seeing as how I didn't need much space, this was fine. The Internet was faster than any other hotels in China.

Redwall Hotel Forbidden City in Beijing

Good location near Forbidden City, within the walking distance to Forbidden city, Tiananmen Square etc. 15 minutes to Dongsi Subway station for 2 RMB per ride , busses are cheap for 1RMB per ride, Taxi 8RMB plus 2RMB per KM(0,6 Mile) Hotel room is ok , mattress is hard as always in China, but has very dirty carpet in the floor, use sandal at all time, never walk barefoot. Bathroom has no divider between shower so the bathroom floor may get wet after shower

get free Beijing city and subway map from hotel.We explore Beijing without tourist guide or tour bus. Take Subway #13 to Longze ( 2 RMB),Bus #20 (5RMB)to Nankou then bus #68(1RMB) to Juyongguan greatwall. It is less crowded than Badaling greatwall
