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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

We had an amazing stay at The Orchid's airbnb. It is right in the middle of an old hutong (where you should be staying if you want to experience Beijing like a local) The place is amazing: Outside old hutong and inside a really hip and modern apartment with a bathtub, air filter and a kitchen with everything you need. The place is a real gem, but what makes it even better is its host! The airbnb is managed by the small boutique hotel "The Orchid" with amazing breakfast (for free) and the best staff ever! I've traveled a lot in China and this is by far the most caring and helpful staff I met. They gave us great recommendations for really local places, not just the mainstream touristy areas. They make you feel like you are part of the family and not just a random guest. Did I mention there is also a great rooftop where you can have your breakfast or dinner and drinks. This is the place to be!

Very unique and local living experience. You will be living with real local people. Despite the neighborhood condition is a poor as you can imagine. The room is completely renovated like the pictures. The location is very central and you can walk to a lot of points of interest.

This is a beautiful place tucked away in a hutong, private and well-appointed but with the benefit of being associated with the nearby hotel. The included breakfasts at the hotel were *amazing*. The staff were to a person friendly and very helpful. The map that they give you of the walkable surroundings was great, and includes a subway map on the back. The hotel has a tranquil rooftop where you can have drinks and food. Highly recommended and we'll be back for sure.

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. 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 it like your own.
