What an amazing experience at Gladys' Garden! Dave and Yang Zhi made their house feel like a home away from home. The breakfast was amazing with homemade breads, yogurt, fruit salad and with plenty of other options for you to make things yourself! The bed is comfy and the shower is spacious which is a plus for a big guy like me.
The house Is a conveniently located oasis in old Beijing. You can walk or bus to the major spots like Forbidden City, Tiamen Square and many other spots. And David and Yang Zho are extremely helpful to tell you how to get to the spots and what goods to eat.
I will stay here again when I travel to Beijing again.
Thank you Parag! You are always welcome.
Gladys' Garden is one of the top AirBnB's I have had the pleasure of staying at. Starting with the perfect easy to follow instructions from the airport to the front door, Yang Zhi and David were exceptional hosts. The lovely hutong style house is in a most convenient location for enjoying anything Beijing has to offer from food to art and music. The lakes are lovely for a morning walk, and the many bars and restauraunts nearby offer live music and good people watching almost every night.
Yang Zhi and David were very welcoming hosts and great people to converse and share stories with. They were kind enough to loan me a bicycle which made for great sighseeing of Beijing, and David even let me play his guitar, which helped ease some homesickness. The cat's Yoda and Frankie were also great comforting housemates bringing many laughs to the party. House is beautiful and very clean, great shower with good water pressure, western toilet, good wifi, clean towels and bedding provided. Could not ask for more. Oh yeah, Yang Zhi makes some killer banana bread to go with the real (not instant) coffee in the morning. Thank you sou much David ang Yang Zhi.
Thank you John! Hope you recover quickly from your cold.
Staying with David and Yang Zhi felt like staying at home. Not only is their home in a beautiful neighborhood, but we really enjoyed the warmth and company. It truly felt like having coming home in Beijing after long days of touring.
The house has all modern amenities, wonderful breakfast foods are provided (the bread and yogurt are delicious!) and the cats are playful. We would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks for everything!
Thank you Lora and Ryan! Happy traveling in Mongolia, avoid the parasites.
David and Yang Zhi have been the most welcoming and helpful hosts I could imagine. I stayed 5 days before I could go to more permanent accomodation (university dorm room), but living with them was much better. I would recommend them anytime, especially to anyone who does not speak chinese. Also they had very playful cats, that I will miss.
Thank you Rune! Have fun studying!
What an AMAZING place! The location is perfect and the hosts are very helpful and kind people. They were great to talk to and always willing to help me figure out how to get places and what to do. It was really nice having a common area with great couches to hang out in. It's a very clean, open, and large home with great amenities. I will be sending all of my friends here and when I got back to Beijing I will definitely stay here again!
Thank you Casey and you and your robots are most welcome.
My stay at Gladys Garden was great. Both David and Yang Zhi are super nice and helpful. Their home is beautiful, comfortable and very conveniently located. They took the time to prepare maps and directions to points of interest in Beijing and were ready to give advice whenever needed. Also, they have two adorable cats. :) If I come back to Beijing, I'll definitely stay at their place again.
Frankie and Yoda send their love :-)
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Gladys Garden! The hosts were inviting and extremely helpful. Their house is beautiful and located in a great area of Beijing. It was easy to get to many well known sights easily. The hosts were happy to answer any questions that I had. They booked a tour of the Great Wall for me and had recommendations for me. My stay in the city wouldn't have been the same had I stayed somewhere else. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for that homey feel.
Thank you Brenda! It was delightful having you here.
Nous avons passé un séjour fantastique à Gladys Garden, et recommandons chaudement cette adresse. La localisation est absolument géniale. L'accueil a été plus que chaleureux et plein de ces petites attentions qui font qu'on se sent un peu "chez soi" en plein de cœur de Pékin: le thé à n'importe quelle heure, les chocolats mis à disposition des estomacs jetlaggés, la possibilité de s'installer dans le séjour entre 2 excursions... sans oublier l'aide et les conseils pratiques pour l'organisation des excursions.
La chambre est propre et confortable. Tout est comme décrit dans l'annonce, même le cake à la banane servi au petit déjeuner (redoutable!). On en oublierait qu'on paie (une modeste somme), tant David et Yang Zhi vous donnent l'impression de débarquer chez des amis.
Merci à vous deux. Et bonne chance à Yang Zhi pour la publication de son livre. J'espère pouvoir vous recevoir à Paris.
Thank you Catherine! It was delightful having you here.
Zhi and David are the best hosts, very friendly and helpful. Their home is comfortable, clean and well located. Homemade bread and yoghurt, and fresh fruit for breakfast. This was my third travel to Beijing and my third stay at Zhi an David's place. And I hope to stay at Glady's Garden when I next visit Beijing.
Thanks Geir! Don't forget the galleries.
Fantastic place! Can't say enough good about it. Perfect location. Comfortable room. Gracious host. Can't imagine a better place to stay in Beijing.
Thank you Jason! Happy urban planning!
