I chose to stay here after reading rave reviews on trip advisor. A decision I found to most certainly be the right one.
On arrival in the wee hours of the morning, I was welcomed in to a warm and friendly environment out of the cold. My visit in Beijing was very rushed, staying just two nights, and The Orchid was a welcome oasis at the end of each jam packed day.
The room was a good size, with a super comfy bed, apple tv box overflowing with a varied mix of recent and older movies and tv series. I had even been upgraded without knowing to a garden room which had a small courtyard of it's own.
Fantastic location, very close to the Bell & Drum towers which can be seen from the top deck of the hotel, and also nearby to the Houhai lakes and hutong area.
The Orchid is very well priced and includes a nice breakfast selection in it's dining room upstairs where you can meet and talk with other travellers. The staff are fantastic, and it almost feels like a family environment.
After just arriving home after a 10-day trip to Beijing, Qingdao and Shanghai, Beijing was definately my preferred location and WHEN I return, I will most definately be staying at the Orchid again.More
