The Opposite House in Beijing is like no other hotel I have visited. It is ultra modern, arty (they had two giant babies on display when I was there) with some kind of Swedish influence. Upon arrival you first find that there is no real reception but people wandering around with iPads to check you in. The rooms are fantastic. Bright, functional with wooden floors and a wooden bath - which does work believe me. The staff are super helpful and willing to arrange anything you want. If you can afford it get them to arrange a driver for the day to see the sights including the Great Wall. Money well spent for memories you will always have.
