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.
