This is a very nice place to stay. We came last year and stayed at the Red Wall Garden Hotel ( another great place to stay) but wanted to stay in a different area of Beijing. This was just the spot and very similar to the Red Wall. They speak better English and it is very quiet. The shadow puppet... More

This hotel may be difficult to find but it offers unparalleled taste of old Beijing atmosphere. The hutongs are really interesting places to explore if you are into that kind of thing (i.e. ethnography, local flavors and traditions). The rooms were comfortable enough, but the things that really impressed me was the willingness of the staff to offer help when... More

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights prior to leaving Beijing and we wished that we stayed here for our entire visit. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and the hotel facilities were top notch. We really enjoyed the puppet show and the complimentary breakfast was very delicious. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the... More

The hotel and staff were wonderful. If we come back to Beijing we would stay here again. We stayed for 5 nights on our trip to Beijing March 2014. While we were there they had renovation going on, you would never have known. The hotel and rooms were spotless. The staff are friendly and helpful, always willing to go the... More

This hotel was the best local hotel we stayed for our trip to China. A little out of the way, but worth the stay. Daisy and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast was wonderful, the rooms clean and comfortable. The local people were all happy and smiling, even if they didn't understand you. A great way to see the... More

My husband and I just returned from China and stayed at Shadow Art Hotel on 3/28 for 2 nights. We highly recommend this place. Here is an overview of our thoughts... LOCATION: Interesting! The Hou Hai area is far from the flashing neon hotel lights of other locations in Beijing. It has real / slice-of-life feel. ROOM: Comfortable, yet small.... More

Our stay at the Shichahai hotel in September was great. The staff was extremely helpful. To our surprise when we checked into the hotel on Moon Festival day the hotel had a special gift waiting for us. Two beautiful moon cakes presented in a beautiful box. Apparently these moon cakes were from a famous Beijing bakery. The buffet breakfast was... More

This hotel is in the back streets of Beijing and when we first saw the area we thought "what the hell" but this hotel was magic. Rooms are clean, staff are great *thanks Daisy* and you are with the honest people. Breakfast was excellent and it is just a very short walk to both authentic and also western food shops.... More

Cannot fault this hotel. Location when you first arrive can be scary. Down old Beijing alley ways but once your there its amazing. There are plenty of eateries in the area, and a beautiful lake to stroll around with bars, coffee shops and markets. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They will organize taxi's, advise the best tourist... More

We can't fault this hotel at all. The staff made you feel very welcome the moment you step your foot in their premises. They are always ready to assist you if you needed any assistance. As we don't speak mandarin, Daisy from front desk helped us by writing down phrases in mandarin and that has help us a lot in... More
