I stayed 2 nights in a single room in this typical Chinese Courtyard Hotel. The hotel is located in a hutong with lots of old traditional chinese houses and small alleys. I came with the train from the airport and it is close to the subway station and easy to find. The staff is very friendly and helpful and speaks good english. The room was small, but they pay a lot of attention to details and the rooms was lovely decorated. You can easily reach all the sightseeing attractions with the subway from here and the hotel also organizes trips to the Great Wall, Chinese Opera, Kung Fu Shows, etc.
I can highly recommend this place and on my next trip to Beijing I will return!!!

Stayed here with my family, and we were really impressed. The hotel itself is charming, with wonderful bedrooms and courtyards. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the location is very central. It made a really nice change from the usual modern hotels - this place has real character!

Room Tip: We had one of the 'family' rooms, which had plenty of space for us and our 11 year old daugh...

An authentic Hutong experience that my two 14 yo nephews were very impressed by. The rooms were decorated with many shades of red and gold satin, that managed to distract you from the with customarily hard beds. Our rooms had western bathrooms, TV, internet, and tea / coffee facilities. Rooms were kept very clean. The courtyard was a lovely place to enjoy a cold beer after a day of sightseeing. The staff were really outstanding, especially Dee Dee, who was able to help us with directions, suggestions, advice etc.
The buffet breakfast offered a healthy variety of chinese and western food.
There a couple of good restaurants in the street; Taste was very good, but you will ned to book as it is so small. there is a lady selling noodles in a cart about half way up the street. these were spectacularly good. A rice pancake is cut up into noodles and covered with a mix of sesame, garlic, chili, & coriander. Once we discovered it, we ate at least once a day. All for 5 yuan.
I can highly reccomend this hotel as a clean, well run, character filled family hotel, that is great for kids or flashpackers.

After going about seven weeks traveling through China, I spent my remaining five days at the Beijing Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel. This place has remarkable character. Situated within one of Beijing's famous Hutang neighborhoods, the Double Happiness is a boutique hotel built in traditional Chinese style. The hotel, the bartender told me, was once the home of a prominent encyclopedia editor in China. It's been operating as a hotel for about five years. The rooms are delightful, all with wifi, cable television and air conditioning. The bar and restaurant features evening entertainment, and the location is convenient to the local sites. Best of all, though, was the staff. Everyone was extremely inviting and welcoming, most all know English and the staff are ready to treat you as one of their own. They even packed me a bag of snacks on the day I went to see the Great Wall. Don't miss this place.

The staff was very helpful. Everyone spoke Engilsh and worked very hard to make sure my family had a good stay. I especially liked the Chinese decor: made me feel like I was in China instead of a chain US hotel. Also the location was ideal because the hotel is in an authentic hutong (alleyway) which are harder and harder to come by in this growing/changing city. The "wedding suite" (which is quite expensive by Chinese standards) was worth the price for our family with my tall husband and two young children. We didn't need an extra bed. The breakfasts were simply fantastic, providing a good combination of Chinese food along with Western dishes that my picky kids needed to get the day off to a good start. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a nice Chinese hotel with great staff and a desire to have an authentic Chinese experience in Beijing.

At the end of 6 weeks back packing around China we thought we would treat ourselves with a stay at this hotel so highly recommended by Trip Advisor users, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. What a disappointment! The costs are exorbitant for the service and facilities received. Rooms are small and dark, bathroom door noisy and difficult to close, TV English channels not working and staff not interested in sorting out difficulties, wifi connectivity slow, lots of mosquitoes in the courtyard. The buffet breakfast was the highlight of the stay (and even that was not as good as other places in China)! The location was OK if you want to see the smells and dirt of everyday China today (we had stayed in villages and various remote places so this was not a new experience for us). I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. China is full of amazing places to stay and we experienced some incredible jewels but this is not one of them.

Dear Carrie A, we are so sorry to know that you haven’t got the good feeling about your stay with us. To make every guest satisfying is our daily work, but obviously we failed to do that for your family. That is nothing but the fault of the hotel management. The new modification and upgrade have been made constantly every year and we hope we could get your positive opinion next time.

Great place to stay in a good location close to the subway. Very nice staff and service. Very recommended. Nice courtyard good wifi connection and fine breakfast. A true chinies old house.
The location is in a nice quiet hutung (alley) in the middle of Beijing.
