Double Happiness Beijing Courtyard Hotel
Ranked #11 of 6,531 Hotels in Beijing
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 May 2014

More than accommodation – this hotel is an experience. And what wonderful experience we had staying in the Beijing Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel. Staying in the Hutong, with traditional ‘old’ china right outside the hotel. But inside you find a charming an oasis of peace.

On entering the hotel we found the reception staff to be very friendly and helpful and all spoke English well, which made the check in process very easy. As we were taken to our room, we passed through green courtyards which featured plenty of sitting areas and were wonderfully dressed with lanterns etc.

Our room was also delightfully furnished and dressed with Chinese silks and brick a brac. And although the buildings themselves are, old all fixtures and finishes inside modern. Our bathroom featured a fantastic large shower room with plenty of hot water. We also found the beds and pillows to be very comfortable.

The charming ‘internet’ bar offered a wide range of alcoholic drinks (not so much wine though) and a mostly Chinese food menu. We enjoyed the meals we ordered here one night. Our boys also enjoyed the Wii, found on the mezzanine level of the bar – the only problem was that there were signs saying “no jumping” and “be quiet”. That’s a big ask for kids playing Wii (especially when I think they only had the sports games??) I think they should find a spot in the back corner on the ground floor, where a little activity wouldn’t be such a problem because the idea itself is fantastic. While we were there we also enjoyed a lady playing some kind of traditional string instrument.

We traveled with two boys aged 7 and 10 and I would definitely recommend the Beijing Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel as a family experience.

Top Tip: Have your taxi drop you on Zhengyi Road and walk into the hotel. It’s just a 2 minute walk, it’s a great experience and these alleys were just not made for cars. Save yourself the stress of a car trip. Also, if you’re going to stay at this hotel, allow yourself a little extra time in your schedule each day to just sit and ‘decompress’ in the courtyard.

A short family break in Beijing and this was one of the highlights. Made a brilliant change from the usual chain style hotels. A little difficult to find (but the staff talked us in on the phone...) but well worth it. The rooms we're delightful, clean, well equipped and comfortable. A traditional hutong experience. Breakfast was great and food from the bar also was tasty and varied. Highlight for the kids was the Xbox on the mezzanine in the bar which was much appreciated after a long day sightseeing. Staff spoke good English and were all extremely helpful. Family rooms were a good size too. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard are delightful

Do not worry at the surroundings as your taxi enters a narrow and vibrant alley - this hotel is magical. The rooms are clean , tidy and full of chinese character. The courtyards are quiet and peaceful and at night the lanterns turn them into a mystical paradise. - superb places to hang out and chill after a busy day sightseeing. Location is good - major sights like Tiananman and the Forbidden City are a 30 minute walk away. Staff are dedicated to making your stay a real cultural experience. The Happy bar has traditional music evenings. Metro is a 15 minute walk. Brilliant!

We had the pleasure to stay at the 'Double Happiness Hotel' in Beijing during a short visit in May. We were happily surprised by the charm of the hotel. The room was authentic but well equipped, clean and pleasant to stay. Breakfast was great. Hotel staff are very helpful and service minded. The location is in a 'Hutong' and seemed like village life in a big city. Very well located to explore the City. We can recommend this place to anybody looking for a authentic experience.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the 'wedding suites'...

We arrived on 07 May and stayed for 4 nights. Upon arrival just after midnight, we were greeted by the friendly and smiling face of De De.
She immediately made us feel most welcome and said 'We have been expecting you, welcome'. Her English was perfect.
The room was very clean and beautifully appointed in traditional decor. There was complimentary tea and coffee and fresh fruit and small nibblies.
There was also a stocked mini bar.
We had a staff member called Yan guide us to and around tiananman square and the forbidden city, and a staff member called Nance guide us at the Great Wall and around the Summer Palace. They spoke excellent English and were very well informed and friendly.
I would like to mention that other reception staff that we met, which included Jaclyn, Zoe and Vivian were very helpful and friendly and all spoke fluent English.
Thank you for making our Beijing stay most wonderful and much better than expected.

The start was unfriendly. The room still had to be cleaned when we arrived. This took a long time. The menu in the restaurant was poor and the internet was temporary out of order. The quality of the room was average. So this didn't make it up. Next time I go somewhere else
