This hotel's traditional decor and association with the culture of Shadow Puppet performance, together with its location in the hutong area, gives a feeling of authentic Chinese experience, with the facilities of a modern hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable and breakfast adequate. Loved the hutong location. Shadow puppet performance was fascinating - a unique...

This hotel is very beautiful and full of character. We had a deluxe room, so gorgeous with opening windows into the centre of the hotel. The staff were so helpful and kind. Good breakfast. The street is very old fashioned and grubby, and not a lot of places to eat but still good hotel

The hotel is trully great, conveniently located in the heart of a nice hutong. Honnestly I have only nice things to say about the location, the hotel, the employees, the breakfast...but I cannot out 5 stars as we were given the smallest room (room 215) of the hotel. This room is sooooo small that you can barely accommodate 2 persons...

It is located in a sweet calm hutong, close to metro station and in a walking distance to all the major sights and has a interesting interior inspired by traditions amplified with shadow play performances. A great addition to your exploration of Beijing

We stayed in the hotel this Easter for a week. In the middle of crowded, dusty and lound Beijing this hotel felt welcoming and home. Which is really nice! There was great continental breakfast. We really appreciated the artistic background of the hotel. The shadow theatre and activities connected with it. That was really really nice. Staff was helpful and...

Staying at the Shadow Art hotel was the highlight of my trip in Beijing! A gorgeous place tucked away in what feels like a traditional residential street, but only a minute walk from the hustle and bustle. The shadow puppet show in the evening with a glass of wine was so lovely and the perfect way to unwind after a...

This is a place that you would remember, unlike the number of faceless international places you may be used to. Staff is young and friendly, which should not be taken for granted in China. The whole place has a distinct character, decors, lights, colours. Even the neighbourhood is unusual - might be shocking when you arrive, being in the middle...

The hotel interior decoration is really nice, the shadow art theater is a very original experience, food is ok... But he main problem is that the rooms are oversold, with a misleading classification ! We booked 2 deluxe rooms (i think ctrip indicates 20 sqr meters) and 1 standard room. We have been really surprised to see how small all...
