The Orchid

The Orchid Review

A smash hit in recent years, and a firm favorite among cool, independent travellers after somewhere trendy, and yet down-to-earth, the Orchid may be located in the middle of the action but is actually hidden away in an old network of hutong alleyways, rewarding guests after their search with its beautiful internal courtyard and rooftop terraces (with great views), its simple yet cozy and modern rooms; and hugely knowledgeable staff.

All these pluses add up to a winning combination and the Orchid is, consequently, now regarded as particularly special. Guest room decors are ying and yang: black and white; teak wood and silk; small with garden courtyard. The top tooms come with their own private gardens and roof terraces, truly enhancing the feeling of serene seclusion—quite a coup in overcrowded Beijing. Throw in some nifty facilities (free Wi-Fi; movies on demand; underfloor heating) and that great staff, who'll do anything and everything they can to help, and you can see why the ten rooms here are always in demand.
