The Double Happiness Hotel really does rate right up there in terms of places we have stayed at on our travels and we have stayed in quite a lot. It manages to mix terrific authentic-feeling atmosphere with all the comforts required, excellent and thoughtful service, the best breakfasts we had in China, and a quite impressive attention to detail. We loved the experience of staying in a hutong and the sheer range of local dining experiences available. The hotel was just gorgeous with its various courtyards, relaxation areas, photos and memorabilia, and Chinese-style knick-knacks. Our room (albeit small) looked fabulous with its Chinese-style bed and furniture. The bathroom was clean and everything was there - the detergent and clothes line were welcome items two weeks into our holiday. We found little sweets on our pillows at the end of every day. The breakfasts had a tremendous range of Western and Chinese food options. Hot food was kept properly hot. The fruit was fresh and selection great. The coffee was good. The staff were genuinely friendly and efficient. They went over and above when we checked out and needed to get to the train station in the rain - they had a friend taxi-driver take us there for free. Never had that before at a hotel!
