My son and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Double Happiness Hotel. We had excellent services from all the member of the hotel staffs***** 5 stars and this hotel located in a hutong alley (it seems pretty safe), a beautiful old building with a traditional courtyard, It combines the best of old and new and couldn't have been more pleasing. The hotel is only a 8-10 minute walk to a Dongsi subway station (line 5) which makes getting around Beijing really easy and cheap (get a octopus/subway travel card before you start)
The breakfast buffet is excellent with options of some traditional Chinese as well as European style.
Beware of taxi, just take the subway, it is just as quick and cheaper.(from Hotel to airport cost lesser then 30 Yuan)
Stayed End of November 2012, travelled with my son.
