“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This was a hotel that was very different that we expected. It was in the middle of a back street that was very difficult to find and the street itself was not very attractive. This didn’t take away hot good the hotel was though. The staff were always wanting to help, the hotel was very traditional Chinese, very clean, nice courtyards, with swinging chairs and tables and very peaceful. The breakfast buffet was included in the price and was nice. The location was good and near the underground so it was easy to get around. The hotel served food but they would happily order you a Pizza Hut delivery, not many hotels would do that. Although I didn’t find Beijing clean or very pleasant, the hotel was. I will not be visiting Beijing again, but if I did, I would defiantly stay here again. I would defiantly recommend the hotel to visitors. It is very unique and cheap.

Unique environment with helpful and attentive staff make for a most welcoming experience. First impressions can be off-putting but your stay is a rewarding experience. When Globalisation is driving communality it is encouraging that history and culture are being so favorably retained in such an accessible manner

We are glad to have the guests of your kind who can understand the real meaning of historical and cultural life in Beijing. The different life style survived from the damage of globalization and modernization is the national treasure of both of us. Thank you so much.

We stayed at both the Red Wall Garden and Double Happiness Hotels, and BOTH were wonderful! Whilst Red Wall was more expensive (and the overall quality better, as it's a 4-strar hotel) than Double Happiness (which was 3 star), both had their own unique charm, and being in slightly different parts of the city gave you a slightly different perspective - I'm rating 5 stars on Tripadvisor for both!

We really appreciate your kindness to compare Double Happiness with the No.1 hotel in Tripadvisor listing. We still have a lot of things to do to improve our hardware and service. A 5 star review for us is the great encouragement for our daily work, and hope to have another chance to serve you when you visit Beijing again.

My husband made this reservation and did his research on this place. If you want something quaint and historic with a feel for Hutongs, you should try the Double Happiness. The service was excellent. The room was completely renovated and the morning breakfast was plentiful. We spent four nights here and found it better than the Peninsula Hotel where we later joined our tour group. When we had to move to the Peninsula, the Double Happiness couldn't get us a taxi for the short ride, but they escorted us and our luggage to the main street and helped us commandeer a local taxi to make the short ride there. The staff went above and beyond with site and local touring suggestions and made sure we were comfortable.

The location of the hotel is also famous for her featured food supply choice. Featured restaurants and lovely bars are surrounding in the old Hutong area. To try the typical Chinese food with various tastes is also the most important part of your stay in Beijing. Thank for your review.

IN this hotel, I felt that I was travelling back in time to ancient China where swordwielding martial artists & fair maidens lived.
A traditional wooden bed with intricate carvings of deer & the goddess of Mercy was the centrepiece in my room, resembling a set on a Chinese gongfu fighting series.
I was also exposed to fine aspects of Chinese culture such as tea brewing ceremony & a performance on Chinese musical instrument--guzheng in the bar.
Best of all, the hotel comes with modern amenities--a personal computer in individual rooms, complimentary fruit platter. The staff are exceptionally friendly & helpful. I was allowed early entry at 10am into my guest room/
Upon submission of a feedback form, every guest receives complimentary tea leaves!
The hotel also arranges for guided tours to the great wall with a local guide!
