Staff are very helpfull and the hotel is next door to the Forbidden City
The room is less than fair size and what bother me the most is the persistence of the musty smell
Perfect location, right in local neighbourhood but also very close to the Forbidden City (Palace Museum).
The receptionist was not helpful.
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 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.
Lacation.. Far from train station and shopping areas
