Descripción de la propiedad

Main building of Red Lantern:
No 5, Zhengjue Hutong , Xinjiekou Nandajie,Xicheng , District, Beijing. 100035




The best and most charming in-hutong area Chinese Courtyard Hostel in the heart of downtown Beijing... 100% traditional and unique. This business is actually the first courtyard hostel open to travelers in Beijing, not newly built copies... We like to call it 'a slice of heaven everybody can afford'
See and experience the real core life of Beijing and stay in our Beijing traditional courtyard house within your budget. In the sense of home, Red lantern House is the closest while you are traveling.

Behind the busy streets of Central Beijing, Red Lantern House is quietly located in the best part of the largest preserved Hutong area of downtown Beijing, which used to be the homes of royal and noble families. The main building was built in the eighteenth century in a traditional courtyard house attached to the famous Zhengjue Temple. This hostel aims to give its guests an opportunity to experience Chinese architecture and culture with local style by actually staying with a local family who provides guests with affordable private and shared rooms of many types and styles.

To meet increasing demand of more and more international guests of different requirements, two more locations have been put into operation and the fourth is under renovation which will be fully ready for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Red Lantern House now consists of the Main Building, West Yard, East Yard and Temple Court. They are all located in the same neighborhood and main street. More choices of different accommodation are available to suit your needs and tastes. No matter you are traveling on your own, as couples, whole family, as a group, the old or young, and even disabled (we have a handicap-accessible location), you will surely enjoy yourselves comfortably in a new home.
This hostel actually is a restored heritage home but features all the comforts of a modern home with the ambiance and feeling of traditional Chinese decor.

We have excellent facilities and our services are of more than a hostel standard. The uniqueness of our hostel is never easily found even you are staying in a five star hotel. This is why within a very short period it has become widely accepted as one of the best hostels and gained excellent reputation among guests from all over the world.

The hostel is a family-owned facility offering all her guests a warm personal welcome and detailed services in a relaxed atmosphere of peace and tranquility where you won't feel isolated.

As one of our guests put: 'This is an excellent hostel with restaurant facilities and very good food from early morning till late at night. The location in a small Hutong gives it great atmosphere and the local family feel with several generations, a cat, a dog and a small happy baby all living under the same roof adds up to this being one of the greatest hostels you will ever stay at.'

Our staff is friendly and can speak English, always ready for help. All our lovely bedrooms are clean and of a fantastic value.

Again as another guests wrote in his review of our hostel: 'The character is outstanding and charming. When you first pull up you may be a bit confused because the area doesn't look the best. However, you soon realize this cute little place is in the center of a real old Beijing downtown. The rooms open up to a courtyard/restaurant where everyone goes to meet one another. It is filled with many travelers from all over the world (in their 20s and 30s, even 40s) that you get to know over beers and food.'

To know more, check all seven pictures.

The most popular Houhai Bar Street (Lotus Lane) is just a short stroll away with hundreds of bars and tea houses. You can rent a bicycle here which is the perfect way to explore the deep Hutongs to see another side of modern Beijing and China.
Our neighborhood is safe and friendly. Just outside our hostel there are many local restaurants, stores, a post office, a huge super market called Wumart and banks including a local market in Hutong as well as Jishuitan Hospital nearby. Here you can get a taste of Chinese life. You will also enjoy the same prices as the locals for everything, as this area has no tourist prices.

The services we provide are easily within your budget and time:
-travel information of Beijing and beyond
-general assistance in English
-flight confirmation
-postcards and letter sending
-bicycle hire
-laundry and mending
-hair dryer
-trips to the Great Wall at all sections including the Great Wall at Mutianyu, Badaling, Simatai and Jinshanling.
-tours and activities including the Beijing City Tour (Forbidden City & Tian'anmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven), Hutong Tour, Beijing Opera, Chinese Acrobatics and Kungfu show.
-ticket booking including train, flight (both international and domestic).
In our communal room or in our roofed courtyard you can enjoy internet access and all drinks at very good prices ( For less than one US dollar you can get one cold and crispy large beers, as well as hot drinks. Winter Recommendation: ginger tea to warm up)

In order to get to the hostel from the airport without hassle, we provide a very reliable airport pick-up service taking you all the way to the hostel without any problem.

We are a Backpacker's hostel. Our place might not be suitable for everyone who is not used to having the backpacking experience. If you are hesitant about your choice, please make your specific requirements clear so that we could make a special one for you if possible.

    buen hostal en una buena ubicación. Solo el restaurante que tienen en el hostal es muy limitado. Nada que no puedas solucionar con la gran cantidad de comercios que hay a los alrededores.

    Stayed in a 3 bed dorm. Hostel is really pretty and has a very nice atmosphere w the lanterns and sound of running water in the koi pond. Staff is really kind and helpful. They sell cheap water, juice and soda on site which is convenient. My bed was comfortable and the lock boxes were large and convenient. The walls of my room were thin and right by the common area but luckily nobody was too loud during sleeping hours. Hostel was clean and overall great! PS: Nearest ATM gave me fake $. Beware!

    Perfect ubication, near 3 subway stops at ten minutes walk. Rooms are clean but not very wide. Toilets are clean but not too many (in low season it was not a problem). They have a bar in case you want to do the breakfast, lunch or dinner. Heater works very well (we went in December!!). Lindy, the hostel manager, is a nice person but she is not very fluent in conversational English.

    Hostel molt xinès i curiós. Els voltants són hutongs molt tranquils i agradables. El preu es correcte si el compares amb la resta de llocs de Pekin, però, creiem que el menjar es foeça car, tens supermercats a prop i restaurants molt mes barats. Un dels inconvenients, es que totes les habitacions estan encarades a un hall, que al vespre et pot incomodar si hi ha gent que parli una miqueta alt. A vegades la recepcionista es mostrava una miqueta antipàtica a lhora dindicarnos alguna direccio.

    The common area looks cute and traditional, but the dorms are pretty ugly and not really comfortable. Very thin mattresses where you can feel the wood below. Thin windows where you hear every single noise from the narrow street. I was there in October and it was very cold outside of bed (they apparently switch on the heating starting in November). It was well overpriced for what is was.
