    The room was very comfortable and clean however there could be a bit more space. The staff is friendly, very helpful and with communicative English. Lovely and cheap breakfast. The location is good, close to Jingshan Park and Forbidden City however the hotel is located in a small and quite dodgy looking street, and is a good 20 min walk from the heart of the city so not a good place to stay for someone who likes the very central location.

    The ticket office was never opened. I was given misleading information a few times and finally decided to book the Great Wall tour with a different hotel.

    the booking had not been received but once I presented the printed confirmation the reception staff were most helpful and went to great lengths when leaving to ensure that the taxi took me to the rght departure terminal.Room clean and comfortable , location good for Parks and Hutongs.

    The best part of the hotel was its location, one few minutes walk from the Forbidden city, Tian’anmen Square, Beihai park and Jinshan park. Its also not very far from the airport and Wangfujin Street. The staff are friendly and speak reasonable English. Safe environment.

    Very friendly and helpful staff members, speaking very well english. The rooms were ok, looking a little old and dark, but were clean, had a nice size and the bed was good. We could borrow bikes from the hotel, although not in very good condition, still a comfortable way to explore Beijing.

    No wifi

    I was stupid to believe the hotel review score. There was no hospitality sense in the hotel. Most of the guests were unhappy foreigner, because the people believed the high score of the hotel review. I believe the review results were made artificially not by the guests.

    Dusty and messy street. The hotel hospitality. Inconvenient location for subway. Short time (7-9am) and poor breakfast.

    Good location, the hotel is very close to the Forbidden City's (less busy) north entrance. The room was very comfortable, airconditioning was working well, new bathroom etc.

    I was delighted to stay at this hotel. The location is excellent, in the Beijing downtown, close to the Forbidden City and Jigshan Park. The staff is very friendly, they also speak an acceptable english. Breakfast was also excellent at low price (compared to european hotels), I missed only some diary products. I recommend this hotel to everyone who want to visit Beijing at a budget price.

    The hotel rooms were quite comfortable, clean and had a nice window view. The bathroom was also spacious and well designed. The front desk staff spoke relatively good English although there were times we could not really understand some of them. But overall, quite good.

    Just because the hotel was located near the Palace Museum, we thought we got a real good location. However, it was quite far from the subway. Although there were bus stops nearby, we didnt really know what routes they used. Overall, this is the biggest disadvantage of the Shatan.

  • Older travelers

    I would rather tell travellers about the negative things. Firstly English was very little used so this posed a big barrier to communication. Secondly the air conditioner was broken therefore our room was really uncomfortable the whole time we were there and thirdly the hotel was located well away from the international airport.

    If possible we will not be staying at this hotel again for the above reasons. We are hoping to cancel our booking for October if the airline allows us to alter our flights.

    Although up a narrow street which was far from clean, the loaction was excellent in relation to the principal Beijing tourist sites. The suite was spacious and comfortable. Desk and service staff were helpful within language limitations. Able to cover most things by using taxis - the hotel provided the address in Chinese and a 'return' address card.

    Very limited English capacity (usually only the senior person on the reception desk). The person in charge of tours was unable to explain where the tours went and provide simple information. There was no brochure available. Luckily, tours aren't needed unless you want to go to the Great Wall. Although minor, it was totally impossible to get tonic water, despite the main bar having gin and gin being in the minibar. Also impossible to get wine in the hotel's restaurant despite a bottle of wine being in the minibar!

  • Single

    It is an interesting hotel close to the Beihai Park. The street however is difficult to be found by taxi drivers and the close environment is not very clean with to many low quality boutiques.

    The fact that the current and the warm water were cut for 10 hours in day time though I paid fully comfort.

    The Shatan Hotel has been a favorite of ours for a few years now. We love the location - it's perfect gor anyone who wants to experience Beijing Culture.
