The Hotel is easy to find due to road signs. One would not expect a hotel in this street, but the surprise is perfect when entering the house. You will find a small but clean and cosy hotel. The location, an older neighbourhood in the downtown area very Close to an recreation area with lake and lots of authenic restaurants.... More

This is a small boutique hotel in the hutongs close to the Houhai lake area of Beijing. It is designed around an old courtyard, now covered in to serve as a large comfortable lobby and which incorporates a small shadow puppet theatre. The hotel is very well designed with lots of interesting objects on display. It was potentially a very... More

to get a great insight in to the real Beijing, this hotel is a must. Great hotel in a downtown area. Although this hotel is in a downmarket area we felt completely sate walking around at night. A must.

The name of the hotel, Shi Cha Hai Shadow Art Performance Hotel, doesn't exactly roll off the tongue but you'll recommend this to your friends if you experience it. Shi Cha Hai is the district, the hotel is in a hutong or old laneway area, Shadow Art Performance refers to the 30 min. shadow play every Tuesday and Thursday in... More

Great location in the hutongs. We had been uncertain before we went to Beijing whether we would be confident enough to find our own way about the hutongs particularly after dark but in the event we had no problems and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. The staff were very friendly and... More

Cute, small little hotel. Loved being in the old area of Beijing, the Houtong, felt so safe walking there even in the dark. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable. Breakfasts very acceptable and plentiful. We found a good restuarant about 5 mins walk away on the banks of the Houhai lake. Turn right at the front door. Walk to... More

The hotel is located in a hutong area of Beijing. A 10-15 minute walk from the Beihai North metro stop on Line 6. The hotel is beautiful inside. The staff was excellent, and the breakfast was very good. Be sure to check out the puppet show! The say at was a highlight of our Beijing stay.

We visited this hotel during a weekend excision planned by our customer. We did not have any say in selection and were only told it would be memorable, and it was! I would stay there again without question. As other reviewers have said, it is very hard to find. Our driver was a Beijing native and he found it after... More

Would suggest you have the hotel details, including phone number written in Chinese as it is very difficult to find, however do not let this put you off, you could arrive by subway at Beihei North Station, and it's a 20 minute walk to the hotel. We were dropped off on the main road by a taxi driver, fortunately we... More
