This is a very cool, design astute, hotel. I'm not a design expert, but Opposite House hits the right notes for clean lines, spacious spaces and attention to detail. The restaurant is great, service is warm and helpful, pool is very cool (though indoors; I guess given the Beijing smog, which we mostly avoided, it is rare to find outdoor pools). We previously stayed at its sister hotel in Hong Kong, which is spectacular, with huge rooms and incredible views. Both are on the same comfort level, but Opposite House is an excellent contrast, with a less obvious luxury factor, but a very cool, and dare I say, very hip, vibe. And I am not hip.
