    location, cleanliness, rooms
    We stayed there 3 nights for visit of the Forbidden City and Great wall of China. Hotel is located direct on turist street only few steps from the Forbidden City. Staff arranged us car for visit of Great Wall. We payed for 4 persons only 600 CNY for half day trip. Taxi from airport cost around 90 CNY for max 3 pax. Travel time is 40-45 minutes. Attention for heavy traffic on the road, you will need maybe 90 - 120 minutes to airport.

    The room is clean, big, and the bathroom is all equipped. But there is no any toothpaste. Reception desk is very kind. But sometimes they are misunderstood the agoda reservations that already paid additional bed or sth. So to be prepared what to say when they misunderstand.

    Location
    Spacious and clean neat room. Bring your own toiletries (hotel only provide 3-in-1 shampoo/conditional/body wash gel). Also to buy your own drinking water, no complimentary water provided daily in the room. A few convenient stores just right outside the hotel. Ask for street view facing, some rooms are "wall" view only (side building's wall). Helpful staff, pre-book a metre taxi to airport for me at midnight without additional charges.

    Very cordial and helpful staff
    about 20min walk to wang fu jing. free lan although slow connection and facebook is banned in china so you can access the url unless you're connected to a vpn overseas. changing chinese yuan can only be done in the banks and it is mandatory to bring along your passport. joining the great wall and ming tomb tour from the travel desk located in the hotel is up to cheaper than other 5 star hotels. you can get the front counter staff to call for a cab each time you need one.

    Happy guest”
    Getting around is easy, close to Tiananmen and other attractions, food, mini market. Value for money.
    No subway nearby. Some rooms have no windows (which Agoda points out if you actually care to click on the room details)
    Having stayed in Pangu 7 Star Hotel for work for 3 nights prior to checking in to Shatan, I was pleasantly surprised with Shatan. Other than some stains on the carpet, I have no complain. Staff speaks decent conversational English. My details was already prepared by the time I arrived and I had a free upgrade of room. The bed was not hard like many of the reviews I read. Bathroom is of comfortable size for me and most importantly it is clean. There are 2 English channels which I was fairly happy with while the rest was in Chinese. Turning right from hotel leads you to restaurants, traditional market and a mini market where I stocked up my water supply. I had my local noodle soup breakfast in one of the shops for 10 yuan. There is also a Coffee Bar at the end of street if you turn left from hotel - slightly costly but I had better latte here than Starbucks from airport. Tiananmen (Gate of Divine Prowess) is less than 5 minutes walk away. I even take a stroll to Wangfujin, which took me about 30 minutes. There is no subway nearby, but I was fairly comfortable taking cabs, which usually cost me under 20 yuan to most other places within Zone 1 and 2. There is no issue flagging for a cab. I absolutely think it is a value for money choice

    Slow Internet connection, cramp shower area, weak water pressure for shower. Looks old especially the lobby and dishonest receptionist. Tried putting the blame on me for a damage wardrobe hanger when it was already broken when I checked in. The window is facing the backlane where Alot of tour groups walk past in the morning hence the disruption of sleep as it's quite noisy

    If you get a cheap deal here and you want to stay in a clean carpeted room near the forbidden city then this hotel is great. Nothing great about it though. Just clean, comfortable beds and a good room to come back and rest once you have had your tour around the city.

    Location, price, surroundings
    The hotel is located in a center, but in an 'old-China' style street. It's nice to see some life instead of gray concrete buildings. There is a wonderful bar just 100 meters away (in the beginning of the street), it's somewhat European oasis in Beijing, I highly recommend it.

    Location
    Thei si a good hotel situated in a nice location, close to Forbidden city & Tiamen Sq. Rooms were clean & towels/sheets were clean. The lane leading to this hotel gets jammed sometimes. There are lots of samll resturrants but one towards the park (western) & one towarads Red Wall (chinese at the corner, only for food - shown in pics, ,,beer sold here is too expensive) are ok. The staff is good & helping with little or poor english but if you write for them, they wd read & try to understand. The resturan on -1 floor of Shatan is only for specific food, & i wd avoid this.

    Fantastic situation. Located very close to Forbidden City and near to parks and transport
    Stayed for four nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great location, in a Hutong that really offers a genuine experience of the local lifestyle. Close to both good eateries and transport connections makes it easy to get around and enjoy a night out. Hotel staff seemed stand-offish but were genuinely helpful. Room was adequate but was not hoovered for the duration of our stay which was only a slight irritation.

    Good budget hotel in a huton in a central location”
    location,
    Understand this first: the hotel is about a 20 minute walk to the nearest subway station. However it's also a 20 minute walk to: the Back Lakes bar district, Wangfujing street, several parks, Sanlitum district, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (25 mins) and even closer to other little things. Jingshan Park (amazing views of the city) is across the street as well. In other words, it's a good location (not "great" but good) if you can walk. Also, the hotel is in a back road (Hutong) and has some crazy merchant activity going on. There is a convenience store across the street and fresh fruit stands as well. The hotel is a standard 3 star and we were charged fifty plus fees and were satisfied. The rooms are a bit small but things were fairly clean and functional. The showers are nice. Room service was always prompt and the front desk was generally helpful. We did not dine there.

    This was our first hotel to stay while in China, since there were holidays during October there was a real problem to order train tickets for the rest of our stay. Hotel representative ordered tickets for all train transfers during our stay, she even went to train station at her own time to do that (Thanks Betty). After all you get what you pay for. Good location, rooms are OK. We've been in standard no window room.

    A hidden gem”
    Location, competent and friendly staff, ambience, cleanliness, nicely designed room interiors
    This hotel exceeded all our expectations. Located on a lively Beijing street the kind of which is fast disappearing, the hotel was a breath of fresh air after the awful hostels we had been staying at as part of a terrible group tour we had been on. Shatan Hotel is clean and well maintained, with friendly capable staff who can direct you on how to get to major attractions around Beijing easily by public transport. Their service was great and very helpful. There is a business centre for your printing and computer needs (a small fee payable). There is wifi on the ground floor of the hotel. The hotel is close to Wangfujing Dajie for shopping and eating. It is also close to the Museum of Art and the May Fourth memorial. The whole area is very historic generally. Jingshan Park is a highlight and so close to hotel. The north (exit) gate of the Forbidden City is also very close by. A lovely area to be. The hotel's not walking distance to a subway station, but only two bus stops away from Dongsi station. The 109 bus is very useful in connecting you to subway stops and it's only one yuan per person per ride on the bus, so very cheap. We were very sorry to be staying only two nights here. Coming back to this hotel each night was something to look forward to during a frenetic stay in Beijing.
