It was our first time in China and not knowing the culture my boyfriend and I were advised to go somewhere where we could relax after a long day of sightseeing. The place itself is very charming: beautiful decorations and furnitures. Our bedroom was gorgeous! If I'm not mistaken it was the no. 4 - when you're walking toward the...

I cant recommend this place highly enough, if you don't want to stay in a identikit hotel that could be any place in the world then this place will be for you. Its a wonderfully restored Hu Tong, you can tell they have spent time and money making the it work as a hotel but also retaining the character. I...

Beautiful designed boutique hotel. The amenities and food were beyond our expectations. Breakfast was a choice of Chinese or western style food. Go for the Chinese to truly experience Chinese cuisine and culture. We were two couples, and stayed in the downstairs rooms which were more like a modern apartment. Rooms on the main floor are right off the public...

The location of the hotel is ideal. It is near to Huguosi Hutong and Qianhai. It is also at walking distance from 3 different metro stations. We walked from the hotel to Jingshan Park and the way out of the Forbidden city and it was a VERY enjoyable 30 minutes stroll. It is a lovely old typical house which has...

We absolutely loved this hotel. Traveling with a friend and my adult daughter, we all agreed experiencing Beijing in this hutong former mansion had a very authentic Chinese experience. We had a pretty room right off the center courtyard with plenty of room for 3 adults. Breakfast was provided every morning. Staff was very helpful. They offered a happy hour,...

first off, our time at the Shichahai was terrific. the environment and ambiance of the rooms/lobby and local hutong brought a heightened respect for Beijing/Chinese culture. As great as the hotel and staff were (all the staff did a tremendous job during our stay!) one particular staff (Joanna) was a special blessing. As my wallet was stolen on the subway...

Dear jimmyshoe, Thank you very much for sparing a time to give us your most valuable feedback. I am terribly sorry that our room didn't meet your expectation.

Perfect, everything is exactly what you want on a stay away from home. Staff were amazing, spoke perfect english and were very helpful. You got a choice of two different breakfasts in the morning which were lovely and the look of the hotel was super dope. We went for a Deluxe Suite which is a must!

The service level and the hotel was very good. It was walking distance to many nice places like parks, museums, restaurants and other activities. Nice experience to join the Tai Chi session on Saturday.
