Shichahai Shadow Arts Hotel, Beijing

Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world


  • Shadow Puppet activities and performances
  • Family friendly
  • Central Location

In amongst the bustling city of Beijing lies the unique Shichahai Shadow Arts Hotel. With its Hutong location and authentic décor throughout you will be sure to get a real taste of traditional Beijing life. The rooms are classically decorated and include modern amenities. An upgrade to premiere, deluxe and family rooms will enable a more spacious stay and with each room having a unique twist such as bed frames made from bricks, you can be sure this will be a stay to remember.

Arguably the most unique aspect of this hotel is the incorporation of Shadow Puppetry which is reflected throughout, making it perfect for little ones - and perhaps the big kids among us too. With three weekly performances, no stay would be complete without experiencing this ancient theatre tradition which dates back more than 2,000 years. You can also get your artistic juices flowing and paint one of your own shadow puppets because, let's face it, who doesn’t love getting a bit messy?!

Located a mere five-minute walk from the front door take a stroll around the spectacular Houhai Lake or perhaps a night out at one of the numerous restaurants or bars nearby. With many other attractions within the vicinity this family friendly hotel is the ideal location to explore the wonders Beijing has to offer.
