Double Happiness Beijing Courtyard Hotel
Ranked #14 of 6,606 Hotels in Beijing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Our family of 5 stayed at the Beijing Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel, and I just can't say enough good things about this hotel! I've never even felt compelled to write a review before. First of all, it's so authentic Chinese, in the midst of a very cool Hutong (old neighborhood) which has 2 phenomenal restaurants at one end. The rooms are decorated in classic style, but the luxury and amenities are deluxe Western - from the numerous bathroom amenities to the tea and coffee service, to the chocolates on the pillow, to the welcome fruit basket, the feather pilllows, the soft sheets, etc. Breakfast (included) is excellent, offering both Chinese and Western food selections. Best of all were the staff - so incredibly friendly and helpful on all levels. They even let us borrow 5 bikes (free!) the entire week we were there. This is an amazing hotel!!

We stayed at this hotel on a flying visit as part of a tour around Japan and China, although we only stayed two nights we could'nt have asked for more.

The rooms (although quite small) were perfectly formed and filled with traditional chinese furniture and the bed was incredible! The courtyards that surrounded the rooms were beautiful and a great place to relax after a mad day touring Beijing.

The service is where this hotel really exceeds others, we wanted to visit the Great Wall but woke up too late to join an official tour, the Hotel not only worked with us to understand what we want to see, but after they got our details of our day plans (Great Wall, Forbidden City and various other essential sights) they organised a private car for us to have all day which cost £70, bargain!

In a frantic city where i believe most would be hard pushed to find their way around without pre-booked tours and a guide, the hotel really helped us out and made the most of our time in Beijing.

Visit this hotel, you will get the best service, the most authentic rooms and a feeling that the staff really care about your time with them, well done!

Room Tip: Choose the Wedding Suite, by far the greatest rooms!

Wonderful place to stay in Beijing. The breakfast buffet is a work of art. Staff dresses in traditional Chinese clothing, and they are wonderful and helpful. I was taken to my room by the hostess and upon entering it and taking a brief tour of the room, she asked me if I was "happy"? I said "I was!" She said that she was then too. Hence the name Double Happiness. No doubt if I go back to Beijing I will always stay here. . . if there is room for me.

Room Tip: I only stayed in one room and it was wonderful. I felt like I had the whole place to myself

When we first arrived in Beijing we stayed in an upscale hotel in the Sanlitun area, following friends' advice, but found both the area and the hotel charmless. A good half hour was also spent trying to get the check-in staff to find our bookings, as hardly anyone spoke English.
When we came back to Beijing the second time we stayed at the Double Happiness instead. It could not have been better from the get go and I so regretted not having come here sooner. The staff are mostly girls (with wonderfully witty Dede in charge), they all speak really good English, are very friendly and helpful. In short, they get what you need straight away. And they are also quite a laugh. Special mention is also due to Alan, who was great help with our numerous bags and helped instruct grumpy taxi drivers.
The hotel itself is as described by others. Really lovely pretty rooms, clean, with functioning wi-fi in the room (not as obvious as it seems in Beijing) and in a really charming central area, barely 5 minutes walking from Dongsi metro on Line 5.
I could not recommend it more. Quick word of advice. Taxis are often reluctant to take you to hutongs (small alleys) as they are afraid to get stuck. However the hotel's alley is wide enough and not too busy, so insist to be taken to the front of the hotel.

I was only there overnight but would certainly visit again. Conveniently placed, small and friendly. Cosy with a luxurious feel - red satin, pretty cups and teapot, computer and WiFi. It is in a little laneway which I enjoyed exploring and where I could peek into the local lifestyles.

Room Tip: The queen was the same price as a single when I booked. Lovely bed with red curtains tucked into an...

I spent 4 days at this hotel early last July and just loved every minute of it.The place is a little oasis in the very middle of a busy and long side street.The decor and the athmosphere is reminiscent of ancient China with silk curtains,covers and hand carved furniture inside and outside the rooms.It is indeed a charming place to stay but what makes it excellent is definitely the staff at the reception:polite,efficient,helpful and with a sense of humor,always trying to help you whith directions,advise and suggestions,on one occasion a young lady phisically took me to a recommended restaurant on the same road and found a place to dance salsa for me...I am looking forward to my next visit and reccommend highly this place

Double Happiness is a wonderful hote in the middle of a lively Hutong Alley. We stayed with our young children and an older nephew and niece. We each loved it for different reasons. There is a beautifully decorated bar and lounge area that makes relaxing in an evening easy to do - and there is entertainment there as well every night. Each bedroom is also beautifully decorated and with all the amenities anyone could ask for. BUT by far the best part of the hotel is the staff - they are lovely, friendly, very outgoing and most speak english. Our children all took to DeDe and Alan right away and had so much fun with them. Going out into the Hutong Alley just outside, we were always amazed by just how much life can be seen at any point in the day, from children running around to men sitting about talking as vendors cycle their carts through. Double Happiness is the perfect place to return after a day of sightseeing around Beijing.

Room Tip: For familes, either the wedding suite or the family room make comfortable accommodations.
