My review is short and sweet - the Orchid is everything all of the previous glowing reports have told you - great staff, wonderful breakfast and the most amazing location in old Beijing - we found the express train and then subway from the Airport not too difficult - but taxis are not expensive in China and we certainly appreciated the ~$25 transfer (arranged by the Orchid) to the Beijing South railway station on our way out of town when Beijing turned on some early snow for us last Sunday. Mr Shi's across the road is a must - it's not just dumplings ! - but they are to die for !
