We loved staying at The Opposite House. The room we had (Studio 45) was enormous, beautiful and very comfortable. The restaurants were great - we tried both, and the cafe too. But the service is what made this truly special. The staff were unfailingly helpful, friendly and spoke excellent English. We asked one young man at the front desk to...

The service, restaurant and in-house bar options make this my only choice when coming to Beijing on regular business trips. The people make all the difference, aside from the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel itself, as exceptional hospitality is their primary goal, and it certainly shows. You will not be disappointed giving the Opposite House a try!

This was our second time staying at The Opposite House for business, and we are still as impressed as ever. In addition to comfortable and spacious rooms with minimalist, natural design, the staff are always extra pleasant and professional, from reception to the restaurants - I have always enjoyed breakfast at the Village Cafe. Sadly the swimming pool was closed...

This is an A-typical hotel for Beijing. Located in Sanlitun, a very hip, foreigner friendly area, it is an art hotel. Contemporary art installations are rotated regularly and art events are hosted frequently. The hotel's capacity is smaller than other big named hotels in the area, giving guests a more personalized experience. And the dim sum restaurant in the basement...

I cannot recall why I chose to stay at the Opposite House while in Beijing. The name was certainly intriguing and the reviews I read described it as being modern and hinted at its interesting provenance. But nothing had prepared me for the reality of the Opposite House. The graciousness and allure of this magnificent hotel became apparent upon arrival,...

The Opposite House is another Swire property, only with that Japanese twist. I arrived tired and after many hours delay.
