“Back to the past!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

A great hotel which will bring you feel back to the century especially Chinese and of course for those will get to know more about the culture and decorations. Starting from entrance, lobby, courtyard, bedroom and corridors all with the feel of Chinese culture.
A variety of food from Asian to western, simple and enough. The staffs were very friendly and helpful to make reservation regarding the tour or direction to the sightseeing place. Location wise very near to MRT as I can said although need to walk around 5 minutes.

Only a drawback was the Internet. It was unstable in the room all the time.

Overall the stay was amazing and interesting.

If you stayed at this hotel, please the restaurant nearby called 老北京炸酱面。Take a right turn out of the hotel, go straight until the end of the junction and turn right again. The restanrant will be on your right after a few minutes walk. It's a old look restaurant which served hot pot too with charcoal.

Saw that Double Happiness was #2 on tripadvisor. Always wanted to try to stay in a courtyard hotel. All the staff were really friendly. Really gives u an insight into what Beijing was like before the skyscrapers and people on the street were friendly. We had a great meal down the street. Sichuan dishes with Qingdao. Awesome!!!
Furthermore, the hotel helped organised The Great Wall trip with packed breakfast. How thoughtful of them. :)

As others have said before, this is a charming hotel that really gives you a flavour of old China. We stayed 3 nights at the beginning and end of our trip and on both occasions our room was upgraded. Both rooms were really beautiful, full of Chinese furniture, fabric and ornaments. Great attention to detail. We felt like we were on a film set! The beds were spectacular and so comfortable. We loved the fresh tea in the room too. Take a good look round the hotel corridors and courtyards – very atmospheric, especially at night with the red lanterns. As a non-smoker, I would have enjoyed these areas a little more if there hadn’t been guests smoking there. Would be nice if it were a non-smoking hotel but this is a minor point.

The computer and Internet in the room were welcome extras. The bathrooms were nice, clean and with good quality soap, shampoo and conditioner. There are gowns (silk of course) and slippers provided. For breakfast there is a varied selection of western and Chinese food

The staff were very friendly and efficient and spoke English well. Outside, the bustling alley is atmospheric and has nice little restaurants and the subway is a short walk away.

At the time of our visit (Sep 2012), there was a large construction in progress next door – a big modern building totally out of keeping with the hutong. This didn’t disturb our stay in any way but might be worth knowing about.

The gift of tea on our departure was a lovely touch. I highly recommend this excellent little hotel. Should be compulsory on any visit to Beijing!!

Location of hotel was excelent, there were many eating and shoping possibilities nearby, in walking distance to subway station. It was interesting to stay in traditional chinese hutong. Delicious breakfast, very kind and helpful staff, free wifi.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with family

We stayed here for three nights at the end of a three week stay in China and I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The non-smoking rooms are genuinely non-smoking! FANTASTIC service and helpful staff, coupled with an interesting location and courtyard design of the hotel made for a delightful stay. The water was piping hot, the air conditioner worked well, free WiFi and computer, complimentary water (and more provided at no charge if requested). It was interesting (and totally safe) walking the Hutong streets for a closer inspection of the real Beijing. We were given directions and Chinese descriptions of all the places we wanted to see by helpful - and it was really simple to hop on the train at the nearby subway and get around for Y2 p/person per trip. It's close to the Temple of Heaven, Lama Temple, Confucius Temple, Silk Market, pretty parks, palaces and much more.

Room Tip: Aim for a room off the courtyard... it's great to relax in.
