The hotel we stayed in Hangzhou was quite special – Hangzhou tea boutique hotel 杭州天伦精品酒店. Would stay there again if I ever return.
Our Beijing accommodation was even better. It was not a hotel establishment, but a hu-tong. Totally love it! The staff were so helpful. I enjoyed how special it was. However, I think my mom did not feel the same way. She did express that she still preferred the grand and posh hotel.
Well, after seeing many typical hotels, a boutique hu-tong was exactly what I needed. The place is known as Red Wall Garden (Forbidden City) 红墙酒店.
