The Red Lantern House is a fine place to stay, but nothing overly special. We appreciated pick-up service at the airport, and liked that we were able to book other trips through them. We booked a day trip to the Great Wall thru the guest house, and it was a lot of fun. We would have like to have had a bit more time at the Wall, but overall it was a great experience. We also booked train tickets thru them, and all went smoothly.
The service was great, and the location is close to the subway, making it easy to get around in Beijing. The downsides are that the hot water tanks are small and the rooms are cold and they don't have enough heaters to accomodate everyone.
