This is your chance to have an awesome, brightly lit, super quiet and cozy full home in the middle of the best Hutongs of Beijing.
Managed by the staff of The Orchid hotel (2 minutes away), so you even get a wonderful breakfast included!
The Orchid's Private Residence #12 is our largest studio apartment, accessible from within Area 9's public yard. The spacious west room features a beautiful original pitched-roof ceiling running the entire length of the property, a very functional kitchenette in the entrance foyer, and a gorgeous naturally-lit bathroom.
Since The Orchid manages the amenities and the cleaning, you can expect a complete local experience by virtue of location, but also all the polish that should come with the property's connection to the hotel. Additionally, you can walk over to the hotel anytime (really, 24/7) and get help on any questions you might have. Extensive maps, great help in many languages, an awesome daily breakfast! Anything.
Interaction with guests
We have tons of staff, everyone is friendly and helpful, we promise. You are welcome to join in on any of the hotel activities as well (trips up to the great wall, dumpling classes, etc) or just come for drinks!
By virtue of the relationship these properties have to the hotel, you can expect that there is ALWAYS someone nearby to provide help and support, but unlike The Orchid hotel, when you stay in one of our homes, you can treat the entire space like your own.
Please smoke outside. Also please be quiet while walking in an out of the hutongs, as the area is very residential and tends to sleep at 9 and wake up at 6, despite the obvious thousands of bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk!
I've been in Beijing 10+ years, and all those helping with managing our Airbnb sites have been here a while as well. We hope to be caring, knowledgable, and well organized.
