This is long overdue. I stayed at the Orchid for 3 days to explore the Beijing area. This boutique hotel is down an alley and once you walk in you are transported to a comfy and cozy home base from which to explore. All staff speak English and were able to offer insider recommendations. The first thing we did was...

My wife and I had an enjoyable Christmas staycation in The Orchid. All the staff (Jenny, Berry, Lily and Rachel) were awesome in making us feel at home and comfortable. The food was great and we had a free upgrade when the room we wanted wasn't available. Highly recommended for people who want a personal, memorable and quiet stay away...

If you're a fan of good design, you'll enjoy the two new self-contained apartments by The Orchid that have been superbly renovated in old hutongs (traditional courtyard houses in inner Beijing). Ours was about 10m x 4m plus a small kitchenette and a bathroom. Beamed ceilings, wooden floors with heating, a reverse AC unit, wifi, Apple TV, and new furniture...

I loved staying at the Orchid! They were kind, helpful, and accommodating. I've already stayed there twice! Their breakfasts are delicious, the area is fun and interesting, the room was clean, beautiful, and inviting, and they were so nice to my two year old. I will absolutely stay again next time I'm in Beijing!

The Orchid is in one of Beijing's historic hutong neighborhoods; we had the hotel arrange for a driver to pick us up at the airport because we had read that some people had trouble finding the hotel, which was totally worth it. We arrived late, around 8.30pm from a long flight and decided to have dinner in the restaurant upstairs....

Had a nice stay at the Orchid during my trip to Beijing a few weeks ago. It is a nice little courtyard hotel just a 20-25 minute walk down to the Forbidden and with views of the Drum and Bell Tower from the rooftop. The breakfast included at Toast Restaurant was absolutely delicious. The Shakshuka is INCREDIBLE. The rooms was...

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...

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...

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,...
