Got picked up by hotel staff at the airport and was escorted to the hotel in a Maserati. Check in was done very smoothly and we received a very warm welcome from all the staff. Warm welcome letter in room from GM. My family and I didn't know much about Beijing so we asked the receptionist. They were all very... More

The phenomenal staff at this hotel really sets it apart from other top-tier hotels around the world. When I checked out of the hotel, I had a new set of friends in Beijing--the staff at The Opposite House. Manager Kenny Pan and his team (shout out to Danny!) went far above and beyond their duties to make my stay exceptional.... More

I recently spent three days in Beijing with my son, and he had booked us into The Opposite House - what a brilliant choice! This property is a Swire Hotel, and literally like nothing I have ever seen before - the rooms were more than comfortable, the staff exemplary, the restaurants great and the location wonderful. It is hard to... More

At first, Beijing appears as a grey and polluted city which is true actually but differently than Shanghai where it's easy to fall in love for, it takes a bit more time for Beijing. When you start to look around, when you start to measure the pulse of this city, you will realize it's a very interesting place and a... More

Opposite House Beijing - Sanlitun district of Beijing, China. What’s in a name? Think of something, like say an international five star hotel, and then your mind may well conjure up images of formal lobby’s, brocade curtains perhaps even, heaven forbid, guilt ormolu. Along with stuffy service staff with starched uniforms….now stick with that thought and then consider the complete... More

I have been fortunate to stay at the Opposite House several times over the past three years and every stay has been fantastic. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, while the hotel is stylish, comfortable and uber-cool without feeling cold or like it's trying to hard. Some of the nice touches include the complimentary mini-bar, in-room amenities and free... More

The hotel is unlike any other I have visited. It is very hip and cool. The service is over the top great. The design and feel are amazingly open and cool. Now I love carpets, but the fine wood in the rooms is a treat. No charge for the room bar was a very nice touch. The wi fi worked... More

A friend of mine recommended that I stay here if I visit Beijing. The Hotel lived up to expectations...the room was spacious and the wooden bathtub was a nice feature. The staff were extremely helpful and the surrounding area was buzzing with life. The Chinese restaurant on the lower ground was superb!

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... More
