This crater lies between two larger satellite craters. The 'Orlov V' crater is attached to the northern rim, and 'Leeuwenhoek E' is connected along the southwest. The later is also the location of an outward bulge in the rim of Orlov, giving it a wider interior wall along that side. There is some terrace along the eastern inner wall of Orlov. 'Orlov D', an oval-shaped crater, is attached to the outer rim along the northeast.
The interior floor of Orlov is relatively level with a central ridge formation located near the mid-point. There are some small craters along the extended inner wall to the southwest.
