This is a very lovely place to stay if one is looking for that "off the road" but comfortable place to stay. Located on an small alleyway, in an old tradtional part of town. Offers lots of food and entertainment nearby. Many shops, most cater to tourist. Its a great location to experience, I highly recommend it as a place to visit even if one is not staying at the double happiness couryard.
The Hotel is not a 5star, all ammenities type of hotel. Its a simple traditional courtyard home converted to small rooms to accomidate guests. Soom of the rooms can be small, but very cozy and nicely decorated. I'm 5"11 and I had slight issues with bathroom being a little cramped, but keep clean and warm. I was in the deluxe/superior suite, but still seemed smaller then what I'm used to. The bed may be an issue for travelers taller then 6 feet but was comfy. Again this isn't the normal 5 or 4 star hotel with amenities, I felt it's more of a 5star Chinese style B&B. The breakfeast was great and adequate for Chinese and Westerners. Had a variety of ham/sausage, hassbrowns and an omlet station. Also some noodles, congee and some other stuff with a variety of furits. We also had dinner at the resturant one night. We had a 4course dinner package. The food was very good and served nicely and the setting was nice and intimate. Overall a good chef and dinner, but there are many great resturants nearby.
The hotel offers a very warm and cozy feeling and the staff is friendly. I love the two Huskies they have in the courtyard. Very friendly and lovely animals. It felt great being greeted by them. I highly suggest this hotel for any visters to Beijing that has the time to tour aournd. Book early as is often full with the limited amount of rooms.
