Unique location tuck inside the famous Hutong area. Quiet,and full with characters. Walking distance to many tourist spots. At night, you can walk to the famous Shichahai pub area, and there are plenty of good famous local restaurants to choose from. About 15 mins walk.

The nearest train station is BeiHai after cutting through the Hutong alley. The staffs are friendly and quite helpful if you need their help. We booked a double deluxe room, and it has a nice window where you can peek through the alley. The breakfast is quite simple, but it's kinda value added as most hotel don't offer breakfast in Beijing. Overall, the hotel is great if you are seeking a quiet hutong experience.

I was not as enthralled with this place as some others. It is located in interesting old neighborhood which is quiet but hard for taxis to find (they usually refused to enter the hutong area). Admittedly the metro stops are reasonably close and restaurants abound within walking distance. The hotel is quite clean and interestingly designed. The rooms are quite small as is bathroom - smallest we had in China. Little storage area. Beds comfortable. The Shadow Art show is fun and they allow you to go behind the screen afterwards to try your own performance. Service was pleasant. Breakfast was adequate, fresh, but few selections. I'd probably choose a different place next trip but can understand why others may enjoy this facility.

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.
