“A superb hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The hotel is elegant, sleek and thoughtfully designed. It has a stunning, modern, luxurious interior and the rooms are comfortable and practical. Concierge services are outstanding and the food in the cafe is excellent. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is wonderful with easy access to a variety of attractions in Beijing. It is one of our all time favorite hotels.

The architecture is fabulous! The room was really big and comfortable, nice, modern and clean decor. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was great also, as well as the breakfast! Highly recommend it!

My husband and I really loved this hotel, having stayed there for our first weekend in Beijing. The room was incredibly stylish and spacious and had everything we could ask for -- including a bathroom big enough that we could both use at the same time! The bed was huge and very comfortable, the provision of all the chargers a well thought out addition and the free minibar a very nice touch. Breakfast was good and the area around the hotel very hip and happening. My only complaint is that we didn't have enough time to spend a lazy afternoon in and around the hotel -- this is one that would definitely lend itself to that! We still have lots to see and do in Beijing, and we won't hesitate to return.
Only word of advice: be sure to take the hotel card when leaving the hotel if you hope to return. Impossible to get back there just by telling the local taxi driver the name of the hotel!

We stayed at the Opposite House for 3 nights and had a very pleasant experience. The front desk (although there isn't a front desk) is very efficient and accomodating. They helped us mail a package to another location in China with no issues. The decor is very modern and spare, but clean and welcoming. The complimentary western breakfast was sufficient and delicious. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Beijing.

We just came back from Beijing and we were happy we decided to stay in the opposite house.
The hotel is architecturally beautiful. since it is done by Kengo Kuma it brings minimalism at its higher point but yet it is very functional and very friendly. the neighborhood is a little far away from all the major site but yet is it well connected by metro. we had booked the 45sm room which was amazing but even so we were upgraded to the 70 sm room which was even better. The hotel has a very nice wholesome breakfast buffet for a very good price, a trendy bar, a restaurant and a wonderful spa and pool. the staff and especially angeline, was very helpful and managed to meet all our needs. the area is full of good restaurants within walking distance and probably the highest end shopping of beijing.
After the opposite house we had booked to stay at another hotel but we ended up canceling it and returning to the opposite house.we were upgraded again and left beijing with the best memories of hospitality. the amenities are very good, really fragrant toiletries. the only thing that needs some work is their wifi which didn't really work all the time.
wonderful place not to miss

Room Tip: choose a room overlooking the main plaza of the shopping mall. bigger, more quiet.

From the jeans clad greeters at the entrance to the desk less paperless check-in this is boutique hotel living at its best. Rooms: sleek almost Scandinavian in style, all mod-cons, light and modern. Spa and pool, gorgeous, with ambient lighting, good service and understated. The atrium entrance hall is architecturally beautiful and the rates are no more expensive than the local chains. Positioned in the heart of the shopping district, with great restaurants right on the doorstep and the art district nearby, we felt this was a must for the tired traveller who is looking for an oasis in busy Beijing.

Room Tip: The 6th floor where we stayed is away from the street, which is quite lively in the evening.

This is quite simply the coolest hotel we've ever stayed in, chic, trendy and stylish almost everything about the place impressed us. Luxurious beds and bathrooms, great swimming pool and 1st class service - the roaming ipad reception people could never do enough to help you. We planned to stay for 3 nights and extended another 4 and they couldn't have been more accommodating. If there was one aspect that needed improvement it would be the breakfast which seemed to lack the creativity and imagination that the rest of the hotel oozed.
