Staff were amazing and so welcoming. They gave great recommendations too. Food at breakfast was delicious and good coffee.
The noise from our room was very loud as we were under the restaurant. Normally wouldn’t bother as we are up and out very early but the day I checked in I wanted to sleep as travelled nearly a full day and this bothered me. Not a bad problem but maybe worth recommending when booking rooms

The staff was excellent, they were kind and helpful, very international with great language skills. The little garden is cute, the bedroom is small but comfortable, and clean. The breakfast--it was awesome! They made the effort to provide several breakfast options and both of the 2 we took were delicious.

The staff were brilliant. Lili especially went out of her way to be helpful. The use of a phone provided by the hotel was brilliant for finding our way from place to place. Breakfasts were excellent.
On arrival, stopping in a tiny road and the hotel was down a little alley!! Luckily Lili came out to greet us.

The breakfast was amazing. Excellent coffee and a lovely hot breakfast. The location was in a Hutong near great street shopping and street food and public transportation. The staff was a combination of locals and expats from all over the world, who were friendly and able to arrange tours etc. The people staying at the Orchid were also a great combination of Chinese and people from everywhere, single people and families with kids. The room was comfortable for our family of 4, had a tiny kitchen with filtered water for drinking, excellent coffee and tea inlcuded, nice bathroom, and a comfy bed for the adults. The kids were fine in couch pullouts. The bathroom was well designed. There was good security and a safe in the room. Beijing already is a pretty safe city, but I also felt the Orchid did a great job with security.
The hot water could get us through two showers, so we had to be careful to shower in the morning two of us, and the evening the kids. But this wasn't a big problem, just something to be aware of.

We stayed in one of the private residences and really liked it. Everything was good but the real standout is the media provided. They have tons of English (and other language) movies, music, etc. Far exceeds what you get at a hotel.
The heated floor in the bathroom is a little too hot, you need to wear socks!

Breakfast was fantastic and the staff were incredubley helpful and always exceedingly friendly
I stayed in the large ground floor room and it was a little cold, even with the heater, as there was a draft ilfrom the doors. Would be great to get a draft excluder cushion for floor. Also, the WiFi didn’t work for me (it was so slow the pages kept timing out).

I arrived super early on my first day (before 8am), and to my surprise The Orchid had an early check-in room ready for me to sleep off the jet-lag and allowed me to join their restaurant for a free breakfast. This high level of service from the staff continued through my stay, exceeding all my exceptions :-) + an amazing breakfast + can recommend borrowing a bike for a day's sightseeing

Excellent location. Interesting breakfast menu and very helpful staff.
Organised a tour of Great Wall through the hotel. This was quite disappointing and poor value for money. I would not recommend the tour guide. (Not a fault of the hotel necessarily). To save funds they avoided parking in the car park and we walked a considerable distance to the venue; lunch was highly disappointing buffet; and we avoided toll rolls on return.
