As all other described already in previous comments.....this hotel is a gem. Very helpfull and friendly staff. Very interesting location with heaps of restaurants and things to see and do. The drum and bell towers are in walking distance. Rooms are comfortable and has coffee and tea making facilities. Wifi works fine in the lobby of the hotel. I will absolutely recommend this hotel.

The Shadow Art hotel is excellent value for its location. It is a stylish hotel with comfortable modern rooms. It has convenient WIFI in the lounge and offers a great breakfast, which caters for most tastes.
It is only 7-10 minutes from two underground stations and the beautiful Qianhai lake and the miriad of restaurants and bars on the foreshore.
The shadow puppet show is quaint and excellent.

Great location, very close to a nice area to eat and go out, very clean and modern. The Chinese decoration is beautiful you feel like in the old times. The staff speak English very well and are very helpful. It is a hotel to definitely come back many times.

Thank you to all the lovely staff at the Shichahai Shadow Art Performance Hotel. My partner and I stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff were very helpful, the hotel is very clean and comfortable and we loved the design/artwork. The breakfast was great and we really enjoyed watching the puppet performance. I was a bit dubious about staying right in Hutong, but it was a fantastic experience walking the alleys and watching the locals play board games in the evenings. This hotel makes for a memorable and more authentic experience in Beijing. Would highly recommend.

Travelling through the Hutong to this hotel we wondered what we had let ourselves in for, but WOW! A small but comfortable room, and staff who could not do enough for us. The Shadow Puppet show was wonderful and it was so nice to go "backstage" and really understand it. Breakfast was very good, shame that there is no restaurant in this hotel, but there are plenty of places to eat nearby.

Make sure you have the hotels address in Chinese for your taxi driver. You will have difficulty finding it otherwise. This Hotel is right in the middle of The Hutong, great fun and close to the lakes and metro. Staff are excellent and The Shadow Theater every other night is a plus. Rooms are comfortable.

Stayed here for 5 days for a business trip. The staff is quite nice and friendly and the location is really good. The rooms are small and either with no window or open into foyer (can be noisy).

Ask for Chinese breakfast instead of western style breakfast.
