As a family we took three rooms and used the hotel as a base for exploring Beijing for a week. It is an oasis of calm set within the unrefined and unadulterated life of the Hutongs. The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble - they even arrange for local restaurants to deliver food to eat in the hotel. Two things you must do - the trek the Orchid organises to the Great Wall that ends at Mutianyu but starts with a remote hill path to a part of the Wall that is totally deserted - and two, get the hotel to arrange tickets for the Chinese acrobat show. It might sound a bit cheesy but it absolutely amazing.
