Sort if strange area, hard for taxi’s to get down the alleyways. But is only a short walk to the riverside, which has boat rides, shops and bars. Close the parks and only a short drive to the forbidden city. Good breakfast, very friendly hotel staff

Great little hotel in a classic Beijing setting

We loved being deep in the hutongs. The fact that getting down the lanes was a challenge for the taxi pays off in an absence of noisy traffic. The Shadow Art performance is a really nice twist too, it's obviously more than just a marketing ploy to them.

Delightful Hotel

Pros: The traditional appeal and added extras of the cooking and shadow puppets.
Location: This is near the Bell and drum towers as well as Beihai Lake.
We had a wonderful stay at Shichahai Shadow Puppet hotel where we not only watched the Shadow puppet show but joined in a workshop to make one. The location was excellent and we enjoyed walking through the Hutong alleys and observing the community life of its residence.

Nice hotel, helpful staff

Pros: Helpful staff, clean rooms, puppet show
Cons: Maybe having the name and address of the hotel in Chinese when confirming booking
Difficult to find as located in old area of Beijing with narrow alleys, so hard for taxi to negotiate. long walk to subway. Area itself good, close to lake. Hotel great and staff very helpful and the puppet show was great. Well worth seeing. Recommend arranging pick up if unable to communicate in Chinese. Fortunately found some people who were helpful in finding the hotel and once we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. Menu of 'snacks' limited, but the dumplings were delicious. Lots of restaurants in walking distance. Found areas around lake where local chinese had outdoor entertainment such as dancing outdoor cinema etc. which were interesting to see.
