Great and unique hotel
Olga, us3 night trip
Shichahai Sandalwood Boutique Hotel, Beijing
Unique Chinese experience in very residential area
As many have already described, this unique hotel is a 2008 build of the traditional Chinese courtyard where there are only 10 available hotel "rooms". The ground floor has several units designed in the traditional Chinese furnishings, while the basement has the remaining units, which are all modernly designed. The ground floor has a beautiful courtyard in the middle where tables are set for morning breakfast or late night chatting. It is also the grounds for their shadow art exhibition, which is coordinated with their other sister hotel and scheduled to run 2-3 times a week. The service is attentive as the staff are very courteous and friendly. I loved the morning breakfast and the Chinese breakfast that they offered. Each morning there was something different, like one day they would serve congee along with various Chinese pastries and another day it would be a noodle soup and something else. Very filling to say the least. The local area is definitely residential and location is not easy to find. There are many narrow hutongs (streets) including the one for this hotel. Either way, once you find the place, it is kind of cool to just walk around the local streets and see how people get about. Watch out for those silent motorbikes with no lights, they just come zipping by at night from behind and you wouldn't know. Only complaint is you have to knock the main door to access the premises, so someone had to come open the gate for you. Lack of secrecy I guess.

Great find!
Wow! Full of charm & traditional decor while still up to date on modern conveniences. Staff very friendly & helpful. Delicious breakfast. Convenient location to easily access major sightseeing spots. I would definitely stay here again.

Not just your regular hotel
How this place doesn't have a 5 star rating is beyond me. It's nestled right in the Hutong, but on the edge so it's easy to get to. Your room is litterally a small house inside a complex. Clean as can be, I'd eat off the floor, great staff, and an experience not to be forgotten. If you want your typical run of the mill hotel, go somewhere else.

Very Good8.0
interesting theme hotel, very spacious room and good service only issue is that owing to the layout, rooms surrounding the hall area are not sound proof and could get noisy when people were out there chatting or early morning when staff pulling chairs and tables to set up for breakfast
