This hotel is hidden in one of the older area of Beijing. This area was old residential since Qing dynasty and the government is try to reserve it's original look. So if you want to experience the real Beijing people's lives then this is the perfect pick. The hotel also offers free dumpling making lesson and shadow art performance.

The Shadow Art Hotel offers lovely accommodations in a convenient part of the city. There is easy access to public transit, restaurants, and nightlife. It is tucked buck into a hutong, and is therefore somewhat tricky to find at first. Fortunately, our three night stay offered us complimentary pick-up from the airport to hotel. Highly recommended! The hotel staff was...

Hotel is in a hutong, close to the night bar and clubs if you may want to experience this. Staff is very friendly. Do not expect the rooms to have natural light, my window open in the lobby. Very good for budget travelers, close to Forbidden City. Keep the address in Chinese language and the hotel phone number

We loved our stay here. Unique, interesting and friendly. The staff were so helpful. The rooms were a great size. We loved the puppet show, painting our own puppets and making dumplings.

I really loved staying in this hotel, it was cozy, the decoration was wonderful and the size of the hotel makes you feel you are in a really "at home" hotel. The only thing I would like the staff to do, is to check the warm air before the guest's arrival. It took one hour to fix the air conditioner...

We stayed at the Shichahai Shadow Art Performance Hotel late Oct 2016 for 3 nights. We LOVE this hotel for its unique identity. It's away from the city's hustle and bustle, a great place to retreat to at the end of the day. Hotel is a 2-storey building. No lifts in the hotel, so you'll need help with heavy luggages...

Since this hotel is located in a narrow street so you have to walk for over 10 minutes to get here. However, shadow art performance was very awesome!!!! Furthermore you can enjoy this free of charge. Other people who did not stay this hotel came here to see this with 100 RMB fee also.
