After 1949, the Chinese courtyard became a realm of privilege, exclusive to Beijing’s powerful elite. Many of China’s leaders selected courtyard homes as their private residence. Red Capital Residence seeks to preserve the elegance and exclusivity of traditional courtyard living.

Red Capital Residence, located in a courtyard home in Beijing’s Dongsi preserved heritage district, was witness to a history of intrigue during the Qing Dynasty and Republican era. One year of dedicated restoration by Beijing’s finest traditional craftsmen was required to preserve antiquity and revive the spirit of this historic home.

The Red Capital Residence consists of five luxuriously rooms, each appointed with original period antiques and a different historic theme. There are three double rooms: the Chairman's Suite (which brings one back to a time when Mao made key decisions from his bedroom), two Concubine's Private Courtyards (for anyone who has ever dreamed of being or having a concubine), and two Author's Suites (one inspired by Edgar Snow and the other by Han Suyin). All rooms have modern private bath facilities, wireless and cable Internet connection, and electronic safe.

Red Capital Residence was named by Travel & Leisure as one of the world's 50 most romantic hotels in 2003, featured in the Tatler Abercrombie and Kent Travel Guide 2004 as one of the top 101 hotels in the world, one of Travel & Leisure editor’s pick in 2006, the “Selected Independent Hotels for April 2007” by China Economic Review,… and nominee for the 2008 World Travel Awards - Asia Region – China’s Leading Boutique Hotel!!
