The location was convenient but staff were not very helpful. I stayed there for 14 days but my bed sheets were never changed. Bathroom was pretty ordinary and breakfast was hopeless. Once I got used to finding my own way I was not bother that much about the hotel staff. Keeping a 500 Yuan deposit in Cash was bit of a silly Idea as we need that cash for spending and not to keep in the hotel deposit. During checkout reception staff waited until cleaning staff went into my room and confirmed everything was OK before releasing my deposit. Bit too much for me! However, I enjoyed the stay. Only two/three minutes from rear exit of the Forbidden City.

Walking distance to sub-way and to the busy Wangfujing Centre. Close proximity to Forbidden City, Art museum, and Jing Shan Garden. Also very close to the old Beijing University building . Staff are friendly. In my room the amenities were bad: TV antenna not connected, and the cable for internet broken. I think they should enforce the maintenance and inspection. Weird smell in the lift; the sink was cracked in my room. Room rate was great though.

This hotel can only be classified as 2-Star hotel. The bathroom is too narrow and the bedroom is small, there is no proper cabinet for clothes. The bedroom is deem which made difficulty in reading. The good thing is the staffs are very friendly, Front Office and Housekeeping. It is easy to take a bus to Wangfujing (Bus # 103) and Xidang (Bus # 109), where there are LRT Exchange available to go anywhere.

I love this place, close to everything, short walk to the royal garden and forbidden city. The staff at this hotel is top, specially the manager. The little thing that need to be improve - The carpet need a good clean up - The smelly sewer in the massage area need to be clear. - the bed is so hard. I will comeback for sure. Top place best value for $ and staff is so helpful.

The room which we were given was incredibly small and looked very tired and worn out. The heating was on extremely high and seemed to be broken. When we flicked the switch to 'cool', more hot air came out, when we flicked the switch to 'off' hot air still came out. We eventually left the window open all night when it was -7 or 8 celcius outside and that managed to bring the room down to a more comfortable level of heating. On the plus side, staff were very helpful and the room was fairly cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for.. Luckily, we were only at the hotel for one night, any longer would have been intolerable...

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.

The location was great. Within walking distance, if you like to walk, of the Forbiddeen City, and the Drum and Bell Towers. Also around the corner were little resturantans and food stalls. The Hotel had a grreat free breakfast.

Overall the Hotel was a good recharge point. I didn't travel around the world to spend all my time in the hotel so not having things such as cable tv or room service were not a big deal. the lcoation of the hotel is about a block to the Forbidden City and Behai park and close to the subway. Taxi's are everywhere and are relatively cheap so no worries about transportation. There are two restuarants in the hotel. One western, the other Chinese. The western lounge\cafe has a pool table and a younger crowd but it is comfortable and the food is not bad. The Chinese restuarant has a decent breakfast buffet inspite of the weak coffee. I would not recommend going there for other meals unless you speak Mandarin as it can be difficult to communicate your order (the waitress I dealt with had little english skills but certainly tried). If you are wondering about bringing a laptop to surf the internet or view your digital photos - bring it. While the hotel offers free internet and PC for rent, the PC's are in Mandarin so it is very difficult to perform an action on the PC that isn't within Explorer (I had to update a PC with Java to reach my companies VPN and it took about an hour). As far as recharging\plugging in electronics: The rooms have built in adapters to allow the western style (USA) plugs without needing anything additional. Keep in mind that if you plan to charge your camera\cell phone while having breakfast -don't. When you leave the room you'll take your card with you which will turn off the power to the room. The power only works when you place your room card in the slot near the front door. Great way to save electricity, but a bummer if you were counting on your camera\phone being charged after breakfast. If you are looking for a hotel that offers food, hot shower, clean safe room (might be small for two people) and a central location the Redwall is a great choice.

The hotel looks like it is in a good location on the map but no taxis would EVER take us there. Coming from the south train station, we asked 6 taxis before the 7th one was persuaded to take us. The concierge was horrible, they struggled to give us directions to the supermarket and all of the tours they offered were shopping based. We had to go to a local hostel to book tours, do laundry and get reasonable restaurant recommendations. Our hotel sent us to the most touristy and expensive pekking duck restaurant. Although our room was only €30 per night, it was not worth it!

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.

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.

Location is the best reason for staying here, it's less than 5min walk to the north (rear) entrance of the Forbidden City which is perfect for getting in at 8.30am and beating the crowds. The subway is a 20min walk but still quite accessible for other sights e.g. Summer Palace and Olympic stadium. The concierge staff spoke great English and were extremely helpful, there is a business centre for booking tours and rooms were clean and reasonable. Note the free Internet access is only if you have your own computer.

Wonderful location, right next to the forbidden city and a little local market just around the corner with restaurants, food stalls. Concierge staff are always helpful. Not all staff speak English but would stay here again.

The service staff is competent, they give fast service when needed. The only setback is that there is a strange smell when we first enter the hotel room which disappear after about 2 hours. The hotel is rated as good with some improvement needed in checking for any non-working lights and safe which fail in room.

impossible to get a taxi to take you back to the hotel from inner city. tried 5 taxis on different days & times but all refused to take us when we gave them the hotel address. must be prepared to walk long distances as subway & buses not close.

We had a great stay at the Redwall. Being English only speakers they were forever sending us off with written chinese notes to get us to drinking areas, peking duck restaurants and popular tourist destinations. The staff where fantastic. Breakfast was the only let down but if you like grease you will love it!
