Check in was challenging, they show 2 reservations under my name. I showed them my expedia print out and they were still confused. Maybe that is why I was double charge? read on..
This hotel is ok but i would not stay again. If you happened to book this hotel, DO NOT give them your credit card for room key deposit. They charged me for the entire stay,even though I checked in with my print out from expedia. I wasn't aware of the charge until I came back to the States and monitor my credit card activities. Charge was average out to be 13US/day cheaper than what i paid at expedia. Maybe that is why our room is so bad? didnt' give us the correct catagory room that we booked with expedia? Now I have to work with my credit card company to dispute the charge. when I hand them my card, I was told they just put an authorization and will cancel it when I checked out. Didn't know I was charged because I didnt sign anything.

Nice, clean apartment with kitchen, bath, living room, tv,, AC, even a washer, at a very reasonable price. Perfect for an extended stay in Beijing. Located near bus, subway and cabs for easy access to the whole city. Great view from my apartment on the 23rd floor. Kitchen had burners, fridge, microwave. Bath had waterfall shower head and small washing machine. Living area had nice love seat and LCD tv. Dining area with table and chairs. Nice big bed with duvet. Plenty of closet space. Free Wifi. I would definitely stay here again. Many little restaurants to eat at in the area. Secure entry. Clean elevators.

Very positive experience: Everyone in the hotel was very nice - the front desk staff, the breakfast team and the housekeeping crew. Next time I come to Beijing, I will definitely stay in Double Happiness again. I wouldn't pick another hotel.

This hotel is in a perfect location. Chongwenmen subway station is right outside the front door, and two large malls are close by. It is also very centrally located to get to many of the must see sights in Beijing via subway. The hotel staff was helpful and our room was always clean.

I stayed at the North Garden Hotel for five nights in February. I highly recommend this Chinese hotel. This hotel is in an excellent location, off the Wangfujing, behind the large Wangfujing Bookstore and next to the Oriental Plaza Mall. The hotel is ideally located near alot of shops and restaurants. There are alot of great food courts in the area with delicious and cheap food(one on the lower level of the Oriental Plaza Mall and there's another one below the McDonald's across the street from the hotel). There is a subway station minutes away from the hotel (in the lower level of the Mall). You can walk to Tianneman Square in about 10 to 15 minutes or it's one subway stop away. The room is clean and comfortable. The bed is firm but that's the way I like it. The bathroom was nice with lots of hot water and good water pressure. The only thing about this hotel that surprised me is that there were no toiletries. They did provide a bar of soap but if you want toiletries you have to purchase a toiletries pack (toothbrush/paste, shampoo/conditioner, comb, face towel etc) for about 30 RMB. Otherwise, I had a great stay, great location, great price.

"Perfect for me, for great location/basic comfort"
It really depends on what you are looking for. I really miss this hotel for its great location (walking distance to the top attractions such as Wang Fu Jing and TAM Square) and the basic comfortableness. It is on a quiet street despite proximity to the attractions. The room had no window - but it worked for me, as first it's at the end of the aisle and noise was really low (the rooms were not very soundproof), 2ndly to me a window only provides path for the smog which nowadays often plagues Beijing. At night it was perfectly quiet and dark. And the bedding was just what I like. Clean soft cotton and basic but comfortably supporting mattress. Surprisingly I did not get any aches/soreness I usually got sleeping in cheap hotel beds as I did elsewhere.
On the other side, the room was definitely not at high end. The water was good and hot but the shower was directly onto the bathroom floor, with only a curtain shielding the cabinet from water. The room was very small with only space for a full bed, some basic furniture and not much more open space. I did not even both to go to the roof as everyone said it was not good, and did not try the breakfast which was optional and expensive. But what you want to see is outside, isn't it?
Call if you need a taxi. The main road does not allow taxis to stop, the local street does but it is not where taxis usually pass by. Subway is very close. And many hotels do not provide heat until the official heat providing date in city.
