“Double Happiness, Triple, and More! The best guest relations ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

I found this darling inn through the raves from Tripadvisor so I selected it. It was my first trip to Beijing, and I was traveling alone and was a little stressed. Once I arrived at the Inn I was immediately met with warm smiles and a SINCERE desire to please. I had a small snafu, but the Manager and Front Desk went WAY beyond sweet in working to resolve my issues. It is TRUE Double Happiness is what this sweet hotel strives to ensure you will have when you stay here.

The inn itself is charming. It's located in an old "hutong"[ Chinese alley} in the main part of Beijing, and offers a glimpse at what is left of history in a city full of new high rise buildings. At first I was unsure of my choice as the alley looks rustic but is is safe and offers a day in the life of view of real, working Chinese.

Once at the adorable hotel you see sweet decor of yesterday, the music, the antiques... I booked a single and was expecting a tiny room, but was gracefully given a lovely room with a double bed that opened onto the peaceful courtyard. The room was tastefully decorated and spotless. The bathroom offered HOT water and a strong, nice shower with an array of thoughtful amenities such as a toothbrush and a razor! There is cable and wifi throughout and I never had an issue with its speed. There is a daily breakfast with ample choices, and great coffee!
They offer wonderful Chinese tea in the room and even have a turndown service.
The one thing that stands out and is why the ratings here are so high is the TRUE and SINCERE desire to please. I mean it is extra-mile in a 5-star way that one would not even get at a 5-star. resort, if you seek charm, a genuine hope to please at an historical site and way of life then you will not be disappointed.

We had a truly great 2 days and wish we had more. It was so nice to enjoy a bit of old world charm. The service is second to none and all the staff are very friendly & try so hard to assist with any request. Room was clean, quiet, warm & comfortable even though it was below 0c.

Pros:
Really cool hotel with an authentic feel
Nice rooms, bed, bathroom

Good breakfast
Service is excellent, knowledgeable, friendly staff

Cons:
Around 15 minutes walk from Dongsi underground.

We traveled Asia for a full month with our two daughters and stayed in many comfortable guest houses and hotels, but the three nights we spent at Double Happiness were the best. We so appreciated the combination of traditional decor and hutong living alongside the gracious service, modern conveniences (like electric kettles in the rooms), and helpful hosts with perfect English.

Our room was so pretty -- we were enchanted -- plus warm and comfortable, and the breakfasts were over-the-top out-of-this-world wonderful. Later, after long cold winter days spent exploring Beijing, we were always so happy to come 'home' to Double Happiness! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The Happy Family Room was plenty spacious and comfortable for four!

I spent a week in Beijing in October and had an excellent experience at the Double Happiness Hotel. I was welcomed with a fruit basket that was overflowing with freshness. They supply free bottled water that is stocked up everyday an very reliable Internet with in room computers. It has a real traditional charm with all the modern conveniences. There is a metro station 5 mins away and fantastic restaurants on the nearby streets. I would defiantly stay here again.

One of the most rewarding hotel experiences I've had. The service was fantastic & the staff booked a Great Wall (Mutianyu) bus tour for me (with no shopping traps).

The building & the area have traditional charm, but the room fittings are all quite modern & comfortable. It's only a short walk from Dongsi station so I didn't take any taxis in the city. But take both an English & Chinese map of the hotel location if looking for it for the first time. (Exit B, then walk north, away from McDonald's. It's the 4th alleyway, just before a Paul Frank store).

Will be recommending the hotel to anybody visiting Beijing.
