Liked: Very nice and friendly staff. Good value for the money. Good location.

Disliked: Sometimes very noisy from the bar (loudly music and talking) after 11 p m disturbing guests who want to sleep. The staff have to learn to control these situations when guests cannot behave due to too much drinking.

15 September 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I, like a bunch of people there picked it because it was a lot cheaper than most in Beijing but the more expensive ones would want to be pretty impressive because Happy Dragon had all you needed. Bar was small but a top little joint with good food and decently priced drinks. Staff are awesome - Sally especially is a champion. It's a short walk to the forbidden city, subway is just down the street, has markets outside in the morning, they can hook you up tickets for just about anything. Overall, sweet joint

Disliked: No dislikes

Liked: It was a nice place, quite good location, helpful staff.

Disliked: They don't have a common area, except for the bar which isn't really designed to meet new people. So unless you have nice roommates like I did, it will be hard to find fellow solo-travelers.

03 August 2010 Tessa would recommend this property

Liked: This location was great. I loved renting a bike and biking around the local hutongs as well as Houhai Lake. Really close to a subway station which I recommend as an affordable and air conditioned mode of transportation. Best part? The free evening get togethers. When I was there, there was a free BBQ and beer night, a free Peking duck evening and a free dumplings night. AMAZING. Internet is free but in China the service is pretty shit, which can't be helped. If you are a foreigner who likes to party totally check out Sanlitun or Houhai. Happy Dragon generally has other foreigners at the bar who migrate there during the night. Make some friends and take advantage of cheap drinks. Awesome times ten. Great staff, great English, great showers, free shampoo and body wash and universal plug sockets for your electronics. Amazing. Don't let Beijing get you down though. Just don't buy crap, don't be fooled, barter until you cry and don't even bother with silk street or Wanfujing. Check them out if you want but they are totally over priced and also a lot of stalls are run by workers who are told to not sell below a price that is way too high in the first price.

Disliked: The air conditioner could have been stronger and you can't escape the mozzies. So bring the repellent.
