This was my second stay at The Orchid; the last was three years ago. This time I stayed in one of their new private residences. It was located just across the alley from the main hotel, and again I was amazed how they were able to create such a luxurious oasis nestled inside this old hutong neighborhood so close to... More

My wife and I stayed in a garden room for 5 nights during our visit to Beijing and cannot recommend it enough! The staff is beyond helpful and will help you with whatever you need. The dumpling class with Lu was one of the highlights of our trip as we lucked out and basically had a private class! And the... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Orchid in November 2016, and loved every moment of it. The common area and rooms are exquisitely designed, with a clean, modern aesthetic, and every detail has been attended to. We loved the fresh fruit and tea (replenished daily), the crisp linens and comfortable bed, and the heated flooring. The staff was incredibly friendly,... More

Well hidden indeed - but once you find it you'll love it. We stayed at The Orchid for a total of 10 nights over 3 visits during Oct and November. Hidden away down a small alley off the Hutong you might question your choice when you arrive. Don't - as this is a real gem and the staff are very... More

This hotel feels more like home in a busy city off a busy alleyway. The staff is very friendly and treats you like part of their family. Helping with directions, giving you a phone to make local calls, offering an amazing cooking class and arranging tours, drivers. They also have a lovely cat that is friendly and seems to sleep...

Cosy place, nice rooms, very good located, great neighbourhood and the best and most helpful hosts I´ve ever meet. It felt to be away for the big mass of tourists and a wonderful way to feel the atmosphere in a old hutong. And it was so quiet!! We could even hear birds in the morning :-)

As others have said, this is great small boutique hotel in middle of hutong area. Almost impossible to find, but once you have, you are happy. Room was small, but they actually have an apartment style room across the lane, with plenty of room. They were very accommodating and upgraded one of our rooms so that our teens could stay... More

What a wonderful hotel. We arranged for the hotel to pick us up at the airport as it seems the hotel can be a little hard to find. We were stuck at customs for over an hour, the driver was there waiting with a sign. Took up right to the hotel and helped with the bags. At check in (Jacob)... More

Best hotel breakfast. The hotel is in a hutong neighborhood that is fun, young, and, hip. I love being away from the touristy parts of Beijing and among the locals. There's lots of good shopping and restaurants nearby. The staff is friendly and helpful. They even lend you a free cell phone to use while in town. The rooms were... More

I am back from a short 2-day stay at The Orchid Hotel in Beijing. My wife and I booked this hotel given the reviews and I have to say we were very pleased with our stay and the overall facilities of the hotel. Keep in mind though, that it is a boutique hotel in the middle of the Hutong area... More
