We had a wonderful experience at the Red Capital Residence, spending a total of seven days in mid-June and using it as a base from which to travel to the Wall (Red Capital Ranch) and to Lhasa, Tibet (House of Shambhala). The Residence is unique in two respects. The first is its location: a working hutong (Dongsi), perhaps 1.5 miles... More

The residence looked great on the website but the actual place was such a disappointment. The courtyard is very small that I felt claustophobic. The room is dark and cramped with stuff. For the price of over US$200 for a double room, it is definitely not value for money, in fact it was a rip-off. US$80 would be about right... More

After reading some fabulous reviews about the Red Capital, we booked a long weekend with another couple last year. Each couple had a concubine room. Whilst the staff were all extremely helpful and nice, this was totally offset by the old, smelley towels that didn't even dry you as they weren't made of cotton, the stained bed linen that appeared...

I read the review from Texas and very much disagree. I stay at the Red Capital Residence whenever I travel to Beijing because I so much appreciate that someone has finally preserved a piece of Beijing's history in this courtyard boutique hotel. True, the rooms are small, but it's a real Chinese courtyard and the furniture is all historical as... More

I returned from China five weeks ago and have just seen the reviews regarding the Red Residence in Beijing. It is appropriate that there be a reality check on this debate, at least according to the other four reviews. Firstly, I travel for the experience. I realise others don't - they want luxury replicated wherever they go. They want a... More

We stayed in the "Chairman's Suite" of the Red Capital Residence on our recent visit to Beijing. This hotel has only two things going for it: kitsch and a great staff. Otherwise, the room is horrendous-- it is tiny, extremely dark, and filled with unnecessary Chairman Mao-related knick knacks (see kitsch). The "bed" will not fit anyone over 5'8" without... More

I can't believe that they have the nerve to charge close to $200US for a double room... (which in many places would be the equivalent to a single!!) Our towels were thin and fraying at the edges.. not to mention just plain washed out. I had a towel at my house I've had for 20 years, that was in better... More

We recently spent 1 night here during a week long stay in beijing. The hotel is very very hard to find, but that adds some excitement. The true problem is that despite a generally helpful staff, the accomodations simply are completely out of whack with the rates they charge. This is one of those places I would have loved if...

After reading reviews of Red Capital Club/Residence we were excited to book a 4 night stay. We checked out after the first night. It was difficult for our guide to find and surrounding area did not look welcoming for venturing out at night. We felt they took the "kitsch" too far past the "comfort level." The reception area & rooms... More
