“Pleasant Courtyard Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

The hotel is somewhat overrated--#2 of all the hotels in Beijing? It is nice enough, although the rooms were somewhat dark (especially the bathroom). It is a nice courtyard house, and the staff was very nice and attentive. However, the location is somewhat of a negative. It has become nearly impossible to get taxis in Beijing these days. Many drivers do not stop. So you have to walk to a metro or bus, which is challenging for someone not speaking or reading Chinese. The bar/restaurant ran out of the Beijing noodle dish on both nights we stayed there. This is a signature Beijing dish, and as getting taxis was such a hassle, we stayed in for dinner, and was disappointed not to have this dish. There were also many old magazines stored in the hallways, making the place look somewhat untidy.

Double Happiness was the perfect escape from my usual business hotel accommodations.

Double Happiness is walking distance to hidden hutong pubs, restaurants and shopping and is a short taxi ride to Forbidden City and Tiananmen.

The welcome letter I received two days before arriving was 'pro' - a really helpful one page pdf with location and access details.

The room was comfortable, smoke-free and fresh. The staff were helpful, enthusiastic and great ambassadors - thank you.

I stayed in this wonderful boutique hotel in July with my wife and three young children aged 4, 7 and 10. We arrived very late in the evening and were welcomed by warm and helpful hospitality that continued throughout our stay. We were upgraded to a larger room for no extra charge as I had not booked a big enough room. While the accommodation is not 5 star (nor does it market itself to be), the rooms are authentic and cosy and the location is superb in the centre of Beijing close to the underground and all major tourist attractions as well as many excellent restaurants on the same street. Staff cannot be more helpful and make you feel like part of the family as well as providing alot of excellent travel advice and local knowledge. A stay that we will always remember!

We spend 2 nights at this hotel and we very pleased with this experience. The rooms were authentic and whole hotel really gave a nice orient experience. The breakfast was fine and the hotel was conveniently located near to the metro (dongs hi) station. The staff was friendly and spoke very good English. The only downside was that in all of its authenticity only international tourist were staying there and the Chinese people themselves were not to be found anywhere. The food was pricy but not more than a hotel quality. We'd definitely come back to this hotel.

A wonderful hotel overall.

Plenty of mod cons in the rooms, but in a wonderful traditional style. Excellent bathrooms particularly and brilliant beds. I slept well every night.

The staff are fantastically attentive, particularly Shelly, Nancy and Vivien. A really great trip and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone visiting.

Can't wait to come back.

I had read all the reviews of this hidden gem on a hutong street in Beijing but nothing could have prepared me for how lovely and exceptional the service and hotel was! We mentioned it was our anniversary and we were upgraded to the bridal suite at no extra charge. The staff could not have been more friendly or more helpful. Their English was perfect There had been a mix up with our driver (not part of the hotel) and the staff was so concerned they made calls and got everything straightened out even though it was not their problem! The room was immaculately clean and exquisitely decorated! The inside courtyard was so lovely. The restaurant had excellent service and the food was very good. The hotel is conveniently located to sightseeing and shopping. ANY trip I make back to Beijing with involve a stay at this truly amazing hotel!

Room Tip: The bridal suite was amazing!

Loved this hotel. Had never been to Beijing before and wanted to stay somewhere a little bit different, this is it. Easy to find from metro station, lovely staff, especially the lady working in the bar, great knowledge.
Rooms good, great bathrooms and breakfast was grand. A good hotel to meet fellow travellers, friendly and not impersonal. Already been recommending it to friends.
