The location of the hotel is great as its around a 10min walk away from the forbidden city, train station is nearby & the town centre is walkable once you know the route. The staff don't know English much so use their phones to translate things to you but do try their best to help. I would say to take... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in a room with no window and without breakfast. The room was comfortable and clean with dim lighting. The hotel is in a great location with lots of shops, local vendors and Chinese eateries on the street. However, the reception staff were not very helpful. We had to check out at 12pm... More

Very comfortable room. Not elegant but very comfortable. Front Office and Staff were very helpful. They waited in Airport for 2 hrs when our flight was delayed and din't charged any thing additional. We were able to walk to the main attractions and really enjoyed the small little restaurants on the street of the hotel especially for a traditional Chinese... More

This hotel was very comfortable. The Hotel staff was nice but did not speak very good english. It is very close to the Forbidden city but behind it, so you will have to walk a distance to get to the square. It is not close to the metro but is a minus in my books. The taxi drivers at the... More

This was an absolute bargain find, and in hindsight was possibly the best situated hotel you can find in Beijing. When you arrive for the first time you will find it almost impossible to find. Many hotel websites do not list it correctly, however Tripadvisor shows it correctly. It is down a road almost directly opposite the Eastern exit of... More

This place is great if a little hard to find, we had a print out of the address in chinese and the taxi driver stil look perplexed. He found the hotel though it is out of the tourist enclave and in the hutong area. You will get an authentic Beijing experience there - great food, beautiful park just down the... More

My friend and I are students and didn't want to spend too much on a hotel. We decided to go for the Shatan Hotel and were positively surprised. The staff at reception could speak basic English which was helpful to ask for directions and both the Bathroom and Room was very clean. The hotel is located within walking distance of... More

We researched this hotel on TA and were not disappointed. It is a clean and comfortable 3 star with a great location and accommodating English (limited) speaking staff. If you want to see the real local flavor of Beijing, stay here. We had room 306 overlooking the street. The first night we paid about $125.00 CA but then I went... More

We booked this hotel because it was good value and we were surprised with the rooms. They were very clean and comfortable, with a fridge, tv, safe and air con, hairdryer, toiletries (no soap!). The bathroom was very good and the room spacious. The only downside was that as there was no window we couldn't gauge what time it was... More
