I stayed in The Orchid from 27 April until 3rd of May and had a wonderful time there. The very friendly staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable (this included offering me ginger tea because I was suffering from a cold).There was always someone there to answer my questions. I could even get in touch using the phone provided by the hotel, which came in handy when I encountered a problem with an ATM that would not give me any money. I enjoyed an excellent bottle of wine from the Orchid's interesting wine list, which tasted even better because I could savour it on my own roof terrace! It was also great to have Apple TV, although I did not make much use of it as it was a lot more fun to navigate the hutongs on the bicycle lent to me by the hotel. I do not understand why some people had trouble to find the hotel. I walked there from Guloudongdajie subway station after taking the express train from the airport and had no problem finding it, using the hotel's directions.
I hope to be able to stay at the Orchid again, it is a gem!
The Yang room is great when the weather is nice because it has its own private roof terrace overlook...
