The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, the bed wad small but comfortable. The location was good and made me feel like we were in old China instead of a commercial place aimed at tourists. The subway was only 10 minutes away and cheap and easy to use.

A calm and beautiful spot in Beijing. Exciting to be among the shadow artists working at their special craft. The atmosphere is wonderful, the rooms are lovely and clean and the staff are super helpful. We will visit again for sure.

Rooms are small but comfortable sleeping on a firm futon. The breakfast range caters for both Western to Chinese and was very tasty. The free shadow art performance on a Thursday... More

My fiancé and I loved staying at this hotel. We researched extensively before deciding on this hotel, and we were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is in a hutong that looks straight out onto old Beijing. It is close to the Beihai North subway and very centrally located. We were able to explore old Beijing and the interesting... More
