We actually live in Beijing but were looking for a nice place to spend a weekend and celebrate Chinese New Year. We'd heard good things about The Orchid from visiting friends and family and thought we'd give it a go. It certainly didn't disappoint. Charming little courtyard hotel with lots of character and personal touches as well as very friendly and accommodating staff. Our room was small but lovely, very clean, and fully kitted out with a networked entertainment system.
The hotel itself is in the middle of Dong Cheng district which is where many of Beijing's traditional courtyards still exist. A great place from which to start exploring the city, especially if you are interested in seeing some of the day to day workings of traditional Beijing life.
The owners of The Orchid did a fantastic job of maintaining the traditional SiHeYuan style whilst providing luxurious and modern accommodation. I will certainly recommend this hotel to future visiting friends and family.
