I stayed here for a few days with my boyfriend. We actually ended up extending our stay, because we just really didn't want to leave - and I usually hate fancy hotels. Definitely didn't hate the Opposite House. Prepare for your subsequent hotel experiences to feel lame and boring. No claustrophobic hallways or brocade drapes here. The Opposite House has...

Everything is right about this hotel, from the design, lighting, interiors, unique style of service, completely eliminating the traditional stuffy hotel feel. The decor is ultra sleek, from the massive rooms, the wooden bath tub, wooden hand basins, open rain shower with wood flooring, the toilet behind a sliding wall, iPad connecting you to hotel services centre. I could not...

I've been to this hotel a few times already. But didn't find the time to write the reviews till now. First of all, the location of this hotel is the hot and trend spot in Beijing, so made everything much easier. Foods, shops and culture. Page one (the book store) is next door. The room and the design was my...

I stay here most of the times I come to Beijing. It's conveniently located in SanLiTun village, a very nice shopping area with both high end shopping, fine dining, easy access to local markets and a taste of the "old" china. The rooms are very inviting and its a pleasure to stay there, the staff is always paying attention to...

I visited Beijing on Business and to socialize with friends I developed over the years in China and New York. I chose this property because of a friends recommendation, and was happy I did so.

The rooms are spacious, minimalist, Japanese-inspired havens of peace and comfort. The staff are extremely attentive and it really is the little things that count. Free mini bar with a very good selection of drinks (yes, and beer), treats and snacks, and your own french press to make delicious coffee. The funky bath bag is available to take home too!...

The Opposite House has recently opened a Chinese restaurant in the basement beside the excellent Sureno. Jing Yaa Tang is housed in a well proportioned, high-ceilinged room on three levels which means large tables can be accomodated without shattering the calm of other diners. All the courses we consumed were delicious but the standout dish is the Beijing duck served...

Beijing is an enormous and sprawling city that can be really draining on the business traveller. What better than having a designer refuge after long day in the traffic and smog? It is a cool building on the edge of the Sanlitun shopping and restaurant complex (highly recommended). As you walk through an ancient wooden door the hotel atrium opens...

I love this hotel. I highly recommend it and would stay here again in a minute. While i gave it an excellent rating, please note the caveats at the end of the review.
