Double Happiness Beijing Courtyard Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 29, 2013

My wife, her sister and I spent a great week at the Double-Happiness. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms comfortable and clean, the breakfast was pretty good and the location is great if you want to move around Beijing (fairly close to the Dongsi station of the subway). But what makes this place extraordinary is its staff... Really nice and always ready to help with anything you could need.

Totally recommended.

This hotel is truly one of a kind. A hutong courtyard in classic Chinese style. The authenticity and attention to detail is amazing; from the hundreds of years old furniture to the rooms to the satin bed covers hand embroidered by the staff to fit the theme. It's a sight to see in its own right.

I can't say enough kind words about the staff. They're helpful, service minded and devoted to giving you the best service possible, and always with a smile. They know a lot about the city and its history and can answer most questions directly (and in good English), and if not they will find you an answer rapidly. I had a drink in the bar one night and got a very interesting lesson in Feng shui and Chinese architecture from Jen (one of the staffers).

The hotel is near the center of Beijing, located in a genuine hutong just 10 min walk from Dong si metro station (inside the ring line).

If I ever find myself in Beijing again Double happiness will be the obvious choice!

Room Tip: We had the luxury room, but I'm told by fellow travelers that all rooms are very good. They all...

This was our first trip to China and Beijing was our first city. We stayed here based on the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. I loved that we received a welcome letter shortly after booking.

The staff spoke pretty good English and was very helpful (e.g., we were interested in seeing a professional basketball game and they looked that up for us and helpfully informed us that it was an "away" game that night).

It is a relatively short walk away from the Forbidden City and all of the other tourist attractions nearby. There is also a subway station about a block (a long city block) away.

The staff always made us feel very welcome. They even gave us (and everyone else, I'm sure) very sweet parting gifts.

We went during the offseason and I think they upgraded our room for free.

I would highly recommend staying here to anyone who was visiting Beijing, especially a westerner for the first time.

I recently spent 2 nights in this hotel and the experience was great. The hotel is hidden down a tiny hotung and from the outside you will be surprised with what you find inside. The rooms were small compared to western hotels but have tons more character and I had the best 2 nights sleep of my entire trip at this hotel.

The staff is incredibly helpful and easily worked around some very last minute changes to my schedule that had me arriving and leaving earlier than planned with a smile. The breakfast buffet was great and I cant say enough about the whole staff and there attentiveness and kindness during my stay.

If you want the best experience in Beijing you should stay here during your trip!

We stayed here in December 2013 after reading recommendations on trip advisor. The room was great, the staff very helpful and they served an excellent breakfast. The staff at this hotel is what makes this a great stay. The staff went out of their way to help us with information about the rail system, places to eat, directions, things to see, how to book a trip to the Great Wall, etc. I would recommend this hotel. Great location as well.
