very unique hotel

I like the traditional, yet very modern decor. Staffs are very nice and helpful. Easy access to transportations. Even the taxi can drive through the Hutong, drop and pick you up in front of the hotel.

Cute boutique hotel

staff concept surrounding
Interesting little place set in the hutongs. Good to stay if you like to walk around the lake and to the other hutongs. Bad if you need to take taxis. Loved the shadow show and the friendly and helpful staff. Small enough to make you feel like part of the family there.

Most cultural hotel I have ever stayed in

Shadow art plays, nice ambiance and setting. courteous and helpful staff
We were lucky to be here when it was the Chinese Valentine's Day season (7th day of the 7th lunar month) and we got to enjoy 3 shadow art plays which were incredibly amazing. It was a great decision to have chose Shichahai Shadow Art Boutique Hotel as our accommodation during our stay in Beijing as the cultural aspect made it meaningful. The breakfast was not bad considering the small scale of the hotel. The staff which I have encountered were all courteous and always eager to lend a helping hand or offer more information for assistance. The only downside was the location which was a dreadful walk with our luggage from the metro station. When we checked in, it was about 11+pm and the alleys were dark. Nonetheless, it was a great stay.

It is located near the center of Beijing.

Clean, good breakfast and service.
The room was small for 4 star hotel. Plumbing fixtures were not working well and water pressure was too low in our bathroom. The services and free breakfast were great. Room was kept very clean.

Overall is good except the location

Friendly staffs, clean and comfortable room
Room is clean but the smell from kitchen will get inside the room in the morning. Taxi not willing to drive until doorstep of the hotel because the road is too small. Good thing is hotel have few bicycles where you can borrow and ride to Houhai and other places.

OK for one night

Room was okay. Bathroom was not so clean and the floor was sticky. I would not call it 4 star hotel. Overall, it was ok for one night

Love the hotel!

the interior, friendly staffs, activities conducted by the hotel
Wasn't easy to find at first, but after knowing the location, it's pretty convenient. The best part is still the interior. it's cosy and staffs r friendly. I love how this place has activities like painting workshop and shadow performance for their guest.
