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...

We stayed for six nights in this very friendly little hotel in the middle of the Hutongs. It's a ten minute walk to the subway, which is centrally positioned for easy access to the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and various other attractions. In the other direction is the lake in Houhai Park which is a popular outdoor space where people...

We were enchanted by this charming little hotel tucked in amidst the Hutongs. It was fascinating to stroll through the alleys witnessing local life on the way to the metro. We loved the central location which is quiet yet walkable to Houhai park and the tourist area. Our rooms were smallish but perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated. I...

We stayed for 5 nights in a Deluxe room overlooking the courtyard last week and it was well worth it. We were able to watch the shadow puppet show from our window, a great show. We did not find the noise from the courtyard intrusive at any time and our sleep, on firm but comfortable beds, was never disturbed. Breakfast...

We strive to inject life and cultural forces into our tourist sites.This is the first stop of your cultural expedition; the next one is to explore nature and the Beijing old city from Shichahai for new pulses.We are situated in the dragon pulse of Beijing, the most sacred site of Fengshui.Shadow Art Performace Hotel is located in the hutong district of Houhai. Here, its design brings you to a lakeside, over the waterfront, into hutongs, and this dwelling in a city district with waterscape and nature puts us back on the path to nature and reshape our heart to value respect and tranquility that go for natural environment and culture. ... more   less

“Opt for the deluxe rather than standard if you want more space. Standard room is fine for two but if it's not much more it's probably worth it. Bathroom was clean and modern too”

“The room was almost perfect.quiet,spacious, lots of plug in for electronics. A WiFi that worked. Due to winter the heat was on, and like any central heating anywhere not easy to control the heating. Our room was hot. We opened balcony door to let in some air.”
