After a long flight and a late arrival into Beijing airport it was both a relief and a pleasure to be met by Mr Ho from the Inn of Double Happiness. This hutong hotel was fantastic. We stayed there 6 nights and it served as a good base to do everything we wanted to do in Beijing. The hotel was just a 5 minute walk to one of the best subway train systems I have ever been on (2 yuan to go anywhere). The staff at the hotel behind the front desk, the kitchen staff, bar staff and cleaners were pleasant, helpful and happy. The breakfasts were delightful, the rooms clean and comfortable and the beds were welcoming after long days. The courtyards were a calming place to sit and have a G&T after a long day of sightseeing. The cafes and shops in the area were plentiful and having access to bicycles made things easier still. We could not have chosen a better place especially for our two children (13yo and 9yo). Thankyou once again to all the staff who made everything seem easy. A special thanks also to Jimmy and Alan (Michael Jackson). We will not hesitate in telling others of your fantastic hotel. From Chris, Lyn, Tom and Lucy

Room Tip: If our rooms are any indication I'm sure all the rooms are fine.

This was exactly the kind of place we wanted to stay in Beijing: helpful staff, great atmosphere (reminded us of "Raise the Red Lanterns"), crimson red curtains, alcoved beds, courtyards, hutongs, clean and comfortable. You name it. We began calling it "the best hotel created by man," which may be an exxageration, but not much. Thank you Double Happiness!

Room Tip: the double rooms were a bit small. the suites were roomier with great atmosphere.

We spent five nights here and it was a real delight - a welcome haven from the bustle of Beijing. The hutong is a bewitching place to stay, and this hotel is a jewel in the middle. all the staff we encountered were very helpful, helping us to plan a trip to the wall, get to the airport and book restaurants. We had a wedding suite. As other reviewers have said, the extra space was welcome. Breakfast was magnificent and, later in the day, so was the bar! We were truly doubly happy and hope to return one day. The quest at this hotel (and there always seems to be a quest for travelers in china), is to see if you can find the tortoise.

What an experience! This hotel is decorated with traditional furnishings of a courtyard house or hotel. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite complete with four poster bed which was beautiful. The staff spoke very good English and were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed breakfast ( included in tariff) in the small dining room where they had a nice selection of Chinese and western foods. The hotel is in the middle of a hutong area which is very interesting to explore on foot. The hotel is difficult to find as there are a number of small streets with the same name (Dongsi) we walked around the area trying to find it for ages before a local helped us (even he told us the wrong street first time but came back to find us). The best way to find it is to have the address written in Chinese get close to the area and ring the hotel to get directions if you are in a taxi or ask locals if on foot.
Wonderful place to stay and highly recommended by us.

If it's all about the "experience" this is the right place! Yes, at first glance the hutong looks kind of "iffy." However, it was one of the best parts of our trip. The hotel places you in the midst of life being lived - nothing plastic or pretend. So, about the hotel: we truly enjoyed talking with the staff (answering & asking questions) and appreciated their excellent and enthusiastic service. Our room's Chinese furnishings were colorful, charming and comfortable. Good to have a computer in our room & free access to internet. It was very clean, very quiet, and quite homey - so nice to step out of our room and into the courtyard with birds chirping and roses in bloom. Good food in the bar and good breakfasts to get you going in the morning. Lots of conversation among guests - Aussies prevail, we were the lone Americans for the week we were there. Enjoyed the international clientele. Taste restaurant is right up the alley and at the end more modern shops including post office, pharmacies, WuMart, and a great place to pick up tea. THANKS staff for doing such a great job in your great-fun hotel!
