The location of the Bamboo Garden Hotel is also a great one for finding food because many restaurants and small stores are close by. The subway station is also nearby, and the Forbidden City is two stops away. But this hotel isn’t just about the location. Once you step inside its doors, you will feel like you have gone back in time with its simple and elegant design that reminds you of the days of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The staff is friendly, helpful, and adept at foreign languages - something most guests will appreciate. Bamboo Garden Hotel houses several restaurants that specialize in dishes made famous by Chinese aristocracy and a tea house where one can enjoy sipping tea in simple and peaceful surroundings.

Great hotel in the hutong area

Not a luxury hotel but well built and comfortable in a hutong, spacious rooms and nice Chinese atmosphere for international clients.
Very good stay, the lakes and metro station are within walking distance, nice experience of the hutong with international standards. Highly recommended despite the poor commercial aptitude of the staff.

Bamboo Garden Review

This hotel really gave one the feel of a traditional Chinese home. The food was good. The price was reasonable
I really liked this hotel however there were a couple of things that I did not like. You could use the wifi one only one device. The drivers spoke no English. The hotel was not willing to provide one with subway maps. I had ordered a lift to the airport. (One of the hotel cars) That morning, I met a guest who was leaving for the airport and was glad to share a ride with me but the hotel would not let me cancel my ride.

Old Beijing charm at affordable price

Cleanliness, decor, gardens
Excellent. This hotel is the former villa of famous Chinese families, located among old style hutongs, and Is reasonably priced.I have stayed here twice and will go back anytime I am in Beijing. My scholarly friends congratulated me on choosing a hotel that represents the best of Chinese cultural tradition. And yet modern with a computer in every room, and no charge for wifi. Close to metro, Back Lakes arts, cultural, and entertainment district, and hundreds of small eateries.

Old world charm with modern conveniences

Tasteful, traditional decor with modern plumbing and electrical conveniences
This is the best hotel I have stayed in since I started working in Beijing in 2003. It has traditional Chinese decor, beautiful gardens, modern electrical/plumbing/internet, is clean, and is very reasonably priced. It is close to the Metro, and close to the Back Lakes district. If you can avoid breakfast, eat somewhere else for the quality and price. Otherwise, I will definitely be back.
