“Weekend in the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

My Wife and I spent the weekend at the Opposite House in early December. The whole experience, from check in to room service to the super comfortable bed was perfect. The hotel is very modern, with cool lighting and super chic bathrooms. The hotel location is also perfect. Located right in the San Li Tun neighborhood, there is quick access to shopping, dining and many bars. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Opposite House to anyone looking for a fun and romantic weekend in the city.

We stayed 5 nights in The Opposite House during our stay in Beijing in January 2013.
The hotel is new, stylish and within a very good area. In 5 minutes walking around you can eat (from expensive restaurants to more budgeted ones), drink and go shopping from high class shops to bargain into the fake market.

It is not located in the heart of the city, but it is well communicated to visit all the spots. Metro station is also 10 minutes walking, which is also a good option.

Only cons I saw is that the price for the transportation and tours are very expensive. We preferred to book tours alternatively on our own.

Room Tip: We had an upgrade to 70 sq meters room. However it was not only by paying with American Express, we...

Opposite House might be the best hotel I have stayed in Beijing!

Location: is simply great! Beijing is way too big, if you want to go to the Great Wall or Summer Palace, it's equally far from anywhere. But if you want to stay somewhere with a bit urban touch, Opposite House is the best choice. it's located inside of Sanlitun Village, with lots of options for restaurants and bars.

Facility: is fantastic! nicely designed hotel, every single items is carefully selected, the texture of furniture, material of the bedding and towels. Restaurants are offering very homely cooking, we stayed for two nights but didn't have chance to try out all three restaurants.

Service: is excellent! different from other hotel chains, Opposite House seems managed by a young energetic team, staff are very easy to talk to, very efficient, always eager to help.

Did I mention they offer complimentary mini bar? nicely stokced with imported water, food, organice coffee and more...
Complimentary WiFi is covered every corner...

Room Tip: it depends on what view you would like to have. We stayed at the Studio 70 room, which is facing...

Stayed for a week in November. Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms. The swimming pool was gorgeous. Especially loved the personal touches left behind after turn down service (eye masks, face masks), and it was great that the minibar was free and extremely well stocked! Sheets were super comfortable. Excellent location being located next to the Village Mall, but it does get slightly noisy during weekends. However, that is just a very minor downside to a great hotel. Two thumbs up!!

There is so much to like about this modern styled hotel.....the feel, the flow, the care and the service...and oh yes it is in such a great location.
Back inside the hotel the rooms are light, the 'in room comfort' is significant and generally they have a lovely feel. The restaurants provide a wide range of cuisines and service is good; and also not to forget the pool too, which is a great experience, particularly when one reflects where you are.....
Now going to Beijing is not the easiest place to get around if you cannot speak mandarin, however, this hotel makes the experience so much simpler - the care and the help abounds.
I have been visiting this city for over 20 years and stayed in many hotels....and this hotel to me is the standout in Beijing, and indeed, across China.

If you want something different from the boring chain hotels you'll love staying at the Opposite House.

The hotel has a minimal modernist feel and walking through the lobby and ground floor is akin to strolling the through an art gallery. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The hotel is within walking distance of the Sanlitun Village Shopping Mall.

If you choose the hotel car service you have a choice of a Maserati Quattroporte, Audi Q7, Mercedes Benz S350 or Audi A6L.

I forgot to write a brief contribution on this hotel where I stayed in with family during our China summer trip. A sister hotel of The Upper House in Hong Kong, the manager of which referred me to this hotel, telling me its nice but don’t compare it with ours! Indeed, a very modern, “minimalist” hotel but don’t get me wrong: it was a wonderful stay. The room we got was a really huge one long stretched with long colorless and very minimalistic interior, a rather “adventurous” shower, lot of windows. Honestly we had to get used to it due to the fact that the rooms –as are the other areas of the hotel –rather out of the ordinary. I guess this is the sort of hotel you either love or hate. Look at the various comments her on the hotel. We loved it, the sleep qualify was excellent, the spaciousness in a city like Beijing was extraordinary. My guess is that if you are for leisure –like we were, was with family with two daughters- you can certainly appreciate the hotel. If however you are for business I am not so sure this is a safe bet. Again for us: its quite an experience and certainly worth it.
