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.

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!
Un grand merci pour votre accueil chaleureux, on se sent comme à la maison à Gladys Garden. Vous êtes des hôtes parfaits. La maison est idealement située. Quel plaisir de pouvoir échanger en anglais avec vous, merci pour les indications que vous avez écrit en chinois. Merci à tous les 3, nous ne pouvons que recommander Gladys Garden!

Thank you so much Yves and Nicole!
Yang Zhi was very accommodating and helpful with any problems I had during my stay, and was always good for a yarn. The house was always warm and cozy, and set in easy walking distance of some of the tourist spots in Beijing. Frankie the cat, with his playful nature, amused me on my more sedentary days.
Thank you Wen Zhou and Jaq!
This is an absolutely lovely observation post for experienced travelers who already know Beijing. Yang is a delightful host, and the family is a joy, cat population included. Hutong life does not get better than this; very comfortable house with all the amenities. Try to get the room on the second floor with an independent entrance and a verandah. Observation of the daily rhythms of life in the courtyard - and on surrounding rooftops - is priceless. Skip the nightlife nearby - and go for a first class Beijing duck either on Duck de Chine (at 1949 Hidden City) or Made in China (at the Grand Hyatt). And then back to Garden joy. Ten stars are not enough.
Thank you Pepe! You are very kind. We will get faster internet as soon as they are available for this part of the city.
