Excellent Hotel in amazing location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 17, 2010

Near the Redwall and for a similar price, under 40€ (double room no breakfast), is the Shatan Hotel where we stayed for 8 nights just under 4 years ago. This Business Hotel was clean and reasonably modern, with excellent staff in a super location. The down side is that it's not the Hilton. It does not have bacon & eggs for breakfast, the rooms are not huge (unless you're comparing them to French hotel rooms), and , heavens to betsy, some of the staff have the nerve to speak only Chinese! It is not a Western style hotel. The breakfasts (see picture on my VT page) are unusual, although my wife quite enjoyed them. I found pickled cauliflower, of which I am quite fond, a bit odd for breakfast. But I always found something to fill me up. The prices I found on the internet did not include breakfast, so you don't have to eat there. One of the staff who spoke limited English brought us packets of buiscuits and crisps to take on the flight with us! Recent reviews on Trip Advisor are generally very favourable, but apart from the odd individual complaint, most of the low scores criticize it for being, well, Chinese. The location is about 5 minutes walk to Jingshan Park which leads into the spectacular Belhai Park, less than 10 minutes to the Forbidden City, and about 15 minutes to Wang fu Jing Street and the Night Market. And the street the hotel is located on is amazing, busy until about 10 pm but we never found it noisy and we had a room overlooking the street. If you want to experience a hotel which caters to Chinese customers as well as tourists and want to immerse yourself a bit in Chinese culture, then the Shatan is a good bet.

I love my stay at the Shatan Hotel.
The staff is friendly and helpful and most of them spoke very good English.
There is a good restaurant there where you can also order western food.
It has Internet access and a clean environment.
I definitely recommend this hotel!

Unique Quality: It has to be its location, The Shatan back street is a quiet bucolic street with fruit and food vendors, but not the ones who approach you all the time.
It is within a walking distance from Jinshang Park and The Forbidden City.

Directions: The Shatan Hotel is located in Beijing city centre close to the Forbidden City, Jingshan and Beihai parks, 10-minute drive from the railway station and 40-minute drive from the airport.
