Good serivce, hard to findPosted Nov 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel has some charm and character and the staff were very helpful. However, it is a little tricky to find - particularly as the name on signs is actually The Red Wall Garden Hotel rather than the Jingshan Garden Hotel as it is sometimes advertised!

A little Chinese sanctuary in a huge cityPosted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We loved it. The hotel is like a small Chinese B&B with modern western conveniences. The room was clean and comfortable, bathroom well equipped, air-condition was great and needed in Aug in Beijing. The courtyard is charming, overgrown with plants and little fishponds. The complimentary breakfast, both Chinese and western, was plentiful and delicious.The front desk staff spoke decent English and was very helpful. We walked through the surrounding Chinese neighborhood , fascinating! Definitely would stay there again.

The hotel was in a decent location but it was expensive for quality of property. Breakfast isn't that great.

Old World CharmPosted May 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is located in the heart of a hutong on a street so narrow it is closed to cars. To enter the hotel is like going back into an olden, more quiet era. Our family room for three was very comfortable. The bathroom was superb. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The only drawback is that one must take a taxi to get to the hotel, as it is not near a subway line. If you are looking for a somewhat different experience, this hotel is great. We would definitely stay there again.

DisappointedPosted Aug 5, 2012
Rooms and grounds were clean and well kept. Jingshan park is across the street and the Forbidden City is a 5 minute walk, but this hotel is not ready for foreign visitors and there are no good restaurants nearby. The hotel only serves breakfast and getting a cab as a foreigner is nearly impossible. We quickly learned how to use the bus system which worked out fine in the end. The staff are very young and don't speak English well. They had no clue as to how to find food, get to the airport or anywhere else for that matter. The only thing they could tell us was to wait on the street for a taxi - in the rain with our luggage. The bedroom and bath were clean but the drain pipes send sewage gases directly into the room. We had to keep the bathroom door shut to keep the sewer smell out, but had to tolerate it while showering, etc. If you are a backpacker or enjoy cultural immersion, this is the hotel for you - but a bit expensive for what it is. If you enjoy convenience and service then I recommend the Shangri-La or Hilton. Better yet, go to Cambodia or Thailand instead.

An unique ancient Beijing experiencePosted Mar 31, 2012
Everything is surprisingly nice except that it is difficult to find and the lane leading to it was dirty. The room is a little small but very great! Make sure you try the breakfast, it was delicious and very ancient style.

small hotel with a family feelingPosted Jan 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
hotel is right next to the Jingshan Park, discreet and quite with only 20 rooms in the small courtyard, the room is a bit cold during the winter time and the hot water system always ran out after one person had shower, however, worth visiting for westerners at a reasonable price, staffs are friendly
