I enjoyed my stay there and the shadow master was so talented. Love the decoration, in great location. Breakfast was fine with both Chinese and Western foods. There were plenty places to eat within walking distance, so not an issue without room service.

Stayed in a hotel for 6 nights, liked it very much, hotel is located inside the hutong which is a bit crowdy and messy, and on contrast to that the hotel itself is quiet and peacefull, it really was a homecoming feeling each evening we came back. Stuff is very attentive but almost invisible in a good way, u can... More

Stayed 3 nights. Small, warm & personal hotel with staff & service to match. Has a high end arty feel, staff are well trained and selected.staff are very attentive, but not obtrusive. Rooms are compact, but this is to be expected with a hotel in the old town of Beijing. Great hotel for couples. Can recommend highly as its close... More

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

Dear Chris M, Thank you so much for writing us such a lovely review to share with tripadvisor fellows. The location of the hotel is very close to the subway of line 6 and ling 4. On the way to the hotel , you could find the signs are quite obvious along the alleys. As you mentioned, our hotel is... 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
