Are you booking in the hotel or at the Orchid Private Residences? We booked 2 rooms at the Orchid and both had windows. Breakfast is served on site either at the restaurant or roof top terrace of the hotel. Maybe the 10 minute walk referred to people staying at one of the private residences. We had a difficult time finding it the first time, as well. It's down a short alley and you don't see the hotel until you look between 2 buildings. Basically, it's across the street from Mr. Shi's Dumplings. It was my favorite place to stay in China, so it's definitely worth the effort.

Bonjour Je ne me rappelle plus le numéro de la chambre que nous avions. Celle que nous occupions n’était pas au sein même de l’hôtel. Nous avions un studio avec un coin cuisine et un toit-terrasse près de la tour du tambour. Géniale. Indépendance assurée. Cordialement

"Residence include a BR + living room and sofa bed which is absolutely perfect for a family of 4"
"Near everything and tucked away from it all. Ask for the residence if you need more space."
"Room 66 is a small apartment - room 5 has a private outdoor space."
