Hutong habitation. #66 is in a separate courtyard space opposite main hotel grounds. Interesting experience, private in that it's a 'gated courtyard' with controlled access, neighbourly in that there is a beautiful glassed event space/ private kitchen directly opposite front door, so everyone can see comings and goings. Very comfortable Scandinavian style furnishing, with the BEST hotel bed ever! Memory foam, like sleeping in a cloud. Room lighting was warm and cosy, could be a little brighter. Breakfast was delicious. Staff warm and friendly. Location wise- about 10 min walk to famous tourist shopping street Nanluoguxiang, Drum Tower, 15 min to Lama Temple. Street is car accessible, but taxis sometimes reluctant to enter this lane. Great location to explore ancient Beijing neighbourhood.

Our stay of 13 nights at The Orchid was a wonderful experience. Every night when we returned to the hotel, we felt like we were going home. The staff was lovely, and from the moment we arrived, treated us like long lost friends. Our friends, who were staying at a big, high rise luxury hotel, visited us and wete envious of our charming home in the hutongs. We were sad to depart and are certain that if life takes us to Beijing agsin, we will stay at The Orchid.

The staff from the reception to the restaurant were very friendly, professional and a wealth of knowledge and went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. I’ve never received this type of service.

The staff were so helpful and friendly and genuinely excited to hear about our adventures each day. The bed was very comfortable, especially compared to other hard beds in China. It is a special spot if you want a Hutong experience. We participated in the dumpling class and met lots of other interesting people and had great food too. They gave us a phone to help navigate around the city which was super helpful as we were travelling around on our own. The hotel also arranged our wild wall hike and Adam the guide was truly amazing, so knowledgeable about the history and culture and happy to share his knowledge.

I love the overall concept of the hotel, the layout is appealing and the people working there are so nice and very helpful. The room was inviting and the bed was in fact extra comfy. Fresh fruit in the room. Dumpling class and Pizza night were social and very nice. And the cats! Good breakfast is included, a real international touch. And I love the neighbourhood. This was my second stay at this hotel, first time in 2015. And I expect to be back.
There's nothing I can say I didn't like. But, since you ask: Although I liked the breakfast, I missed the opportunity of a real Beijing breakfast (congee, a regular jianbing etc). I would also like a wastepaper basket in the room and a toilet brush. Sometimes I do wish to clean up after myself. (Better for all, I think). But these are details! The Orchard is just great!

The location, despite being a little far from a subway station, is fabulous as the surrounding neighbourhood is fascinating and filled with great shops and restaurants and you are close to major tourist sites. The staff are extremely helpful and the breakfast is excellent. I have already recommended this place to friends and family.
The only thing I would say is that due to this place being a conversion from old hutong buildings they have to work hard to squeeze in modern amenities and things were a bit cramped. But I spent so little time in my room it didn’t matter.

A singular experience in one of Beijing's classic hutongs. The breakfast was among the best I've had at any hotel and the location can't be beat. A seven or eight minute walk from the Drum and Bell Towers. A great home base from which to explore Beijing on foot. My room was not huge but well-appointed and a nice mix of contemporary comfort with a feeling of times past.
There wasn't anything at the hotel that displeased me in any way. I want to return with my family.

La atención es muy buena, sobretodo de la chica de Cuba que se preocupa de ayudarte. Aparte tiene el plus de hablar español. El desayuno es bien bueno, hay diferentes opciones y además hacen el latte y cappuccino muy bien, cosa que se agradece. Se puede tomar desayuno hasta tarde. Tiene un restaurant (que a la tarde es más un bar) que es muy práctico para terminar el día.
La ubicación es un poco interior en el hutong. Puede ser agotador con los días las caminatas al metro, considerar que en general los taxis no llegan a la entrada del hotel, sino a calle principal. El colchón de la cama deficiente. No se descansa muy bien por lo mismo. Ducha con poca presión, al parecer es el shower que debiesen cambiar.

Das Orchid ist ein Juwel. Sehr gut gelegen und wunderbar schönes Boutique Hotel. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und reichhaltig, und das Personal sehr zuvorkommend, nett und hilfreich. Absolut empfehlenswert.
Es hat mir alles gut gefallen. Einziger Punkt, den ich kritisieren kann ist die Qualität der Matratze. Zudem hatte mein Zimmer nur ein Fenster zum Innenhof und Privatsphäre etwas eingeschränkt. Aber ich habe das bei der Reservation gewusst.

This place exceeded our expectations. It was perfect. So clean, very calming and the staff was genuninly friendly and attentive. They insisted we eat breakfast first before we checked in once we had arrived from a 13 hour flight. They provided us with a map and a cell phone to assist in discovering the city and told us to call the preprogrammed number if we got into a jam. It was GPS and was such a asset during our three days there. The breakfast was gourmet and very tasty. The room was modern and spacious and the showers were hot with wonderful amenities. There are two adorable cats on property that the staff clearly adores. It really made it feel like I was staying in someone’s home rather than a hotel. My only complaint is that the bed had impressions on both sides so we sunk a little too far into the bed when we slept. Other than that our stay was perfect! Literally couldn’t have asked for more and I would stay here time and again in Beijing.
