We love this place, we have stayed there several times and love it! Always amazing! Amazing comfort in the heart of the Beijing Hutongs! We will certainly return again soon. Clean and courteous and the breakfast is great. Don't miss the shadow puppet show!

The hotel is situated near the lake where most of the action is on a evening it is only about a 10 minute walk. It is only about at 10 minute walk in the opposite direction to the metro station. We only had breakfast during our stay which is very basic but was enough to put you on ! I...

Such a lovely hotel if you are looking for old time Chinese authentic charm. It is situated about a 10 minute walk from north Behai station which is ok in the morning but a huge effort after a day of sightseeing. We felt safe walking at night in the hutong district. The hotel itself is clean and very charming. The...

A great surprise! A great hotel nestled among the hutongs! Great location - central to most tourist attractions and subway. Great customer service and comfy rooms. Little supermarkets nearby and the lovely lake, tea houses and bars with live music! Have travelled A LOT and would definitely be going back and recommending to family and friends

Nice authentic place in the hurt of a hutong (old Peking quarter). We designed, well maintained and the service is good and professional. Worth the money and bring a local experience. Rooms are small but well maintain and cleaned.

This little boutiqe hotel provided us with a very "homey" feeling which we really loved. The hotel is situated in a lovely neighbourhood (hutong) with plenty of little shops nearby. Nearest subway station is approximately 10 minutes walk away, and it will get you to virtually everywhere in Beijing. The hotel offers various activities and is able to assist in...

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!
