After getting over the hutong smell and location we had a great time at the Shatan. The location is fantastic and really puts you into the China atmosphere. Check out some of the restuarants on the street as well, including a lady that makes an unreal breakfast sandwich for 5 yuan at the end of the street on the same side of the Shatan (towards the Red Wall hotel). The rooms are what we expected, small, dated, and we also had no air conditioning the entire week so our room was at a balmy 27 degrees celcius. We were told that the air conditioning did not work since it was almost winter. There is no wifi in the rooms that are not on the first floor, but there is wifi in the lobby. Don't bother with the restuarant in the hotel nor the lobby bar, pretty expensive when you can run across the road and get a beer for 3 yuan. I definitely recommend staying here.
