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.

Good Beijing basecamp

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.

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.

Great food out on the street next to the hotel available in the mornings for much cheaper than at the hotel buffet!

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.
