In my opinion this hotel offers good value for money since the location is excellent and the Chinese breakfast was ok (except on the last day when they didn't refill) It's close to a lot of attractions as well as to public transport. I liked the area in general, lot's of small supermarkets and restaurants. Our rooms was decent in... More

Although it is conveniently located in a hutong close to the Forbidden City, any other city sight requires a long walk and metro link, which can be very tiring in Beijing. The hotel is fairly old, rooms are old-fashioned, covered with carpets and stains. WiFi was free, but very slow. Only some members of the staff could speak English. They... More

This is down a hutong road. Which means markets and fruits stalls. Taxi knew where it was. The tourist lady could speak english but heard the trips are overpriced. Girl on front desk could speak little but enough to understand. Room was 314. Big room for solo person. Room did smell of tabacco. They don't change bed sheets they just... More

Pros: Excellent location. The area has a very cool local feel and it's close to everything. Obviously, the price. Comfortable and clean beds. Cons: The place needs a good scrubbing. The shower, the walls, the rug. No one speaks English, which is okay, but I count it as a con because it just makes things complicated for travelers. The wifi... More

The hotel is located within a rock's throw from The forbidden city and Jingshan park, and there are both Western style cafées and Chinese cuisines just outside, as well as small shops and convenience stores. We got a twin room for less than 300 RMB per night. It could have preferaby been cleaner (like worn-out walls and cigarette burn marks... More

This place is not very convenient to public transport, a little, but not very. The Hotel's closest subway station is Dongsi. But it's takes a while to walk from there (and it was hard to find). Buses are close though. But it is very close to the forbidden city! :) The hotel staff barely speak english and are not very... More

Pretty decent room for the price. I had an inner room so there were no windows. The wifi is okay, but not that great. The buffet downstairs is excellent. That was my favorite part. The food was just darn amazing to me. I ate and ate and filled my belly. Great start for the day to explore the city. Caught... More

We stayed here for a week and the only thing going for this hotel is that it is near Forbidden City and Jingshan Park and is located in a hutong which makes it an interesting place to stay. Stay here if you want the following . incredibly small rooms . Air conditioning that could not be regulated. It was either... More

Located in a hutong, this is a very clean and modern hotel inside. Rooms aren't large, but very clean, excellent bathroom and comfortable beds. Very close to Jinshan and Behai Parks, Forbidden City and Tiannenmen Square, but quite a wat from any metro station. Second time of staying.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Shatan Hotel. I took a screen shot on my phone of the address in Chinese on TripAdvisor and showed it to our cab driver at the airport; he found the hotel without issue. We booked a queen room with a window and were very happy with it. Our room was clean and the... More
