Truly beautiful hotel. One of the loveliest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are minimal but very comfortable. We stayed in the smallest sized room, but very spacious. The service is great. The art in the foyer is amazing. The hotel restaurants are lovely. The location is good. Near to the subway. But otherwise in a mall, though... More

Went for the full body massage and facial during my 2-week business stay in Beijing Sanlitun district. 200% worth it! Architect Kengo Kuma really knocked himself out with this hotel. So exquisite! Would stay there if I could afford it. Such a sense of serenity and uniqueness to this place. Highly recommended. For those like me who want the experience... More

This is my first time in China, and I was not expecting the progressive, innovative, and contemporary feel I've encounter thus far. And that's is exactly how I would describe this hotel. The decor is simple, understated, yet classic, high end and homely. It's located at a very convenient location where you can access high end shops, as well as... More

This is one of the truly great hotels of the world. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The decor, modern and minimalist. A true showcase for a revolving collection of local art that always seems to be changing. We love staying here. A home away from home with an X factor. It's not a big hotel, but it doesn't fall...

I really enjoyed this place. Conveniently located in a posh neighborhood, but still close to metro and some attractions. Great wooden bathtub and two wooden sinks. Great choice of toiletries. Excellent decoration, a highly efficiend check-in and checkout. A pure luxury - all the items in minibar complimentary, and missing items replaced every day. Art in the lobby makes an... More

Nice hotel , nice food, nice staff, nice room, nice location. One of the best hotel I have ever stayed. Not much room in the hotel, no in check in desk, you can just sit in the sofa & check in. Lots of architect in the hotel lobby. Just like a modern hotel somewhere in Europe when u come in... More

Even though this hotel is only about 5 blocks from our home, we go here for weekends “away”. It is situated right in the heart of San Li Tun with all of its restaurants, bars and great shopping. Step in and you won’t find a reception desk – young trendy hotel service people find you sitting on the couch and... More

On our trip to China we stayed in several 5 star hotels and Opposite House was the best. Design, confort, cleanliness, hotel staff... Everything was perfect! We had booked a 35sq. mt. room. At the check-in (which was fast and efficient) the hotel offered us an upgrade to a 70 sq. mt. room for a fair price (which included breakfast).... More

It was a hard decision to take; I wanted to stay at the St. Regis, but opted to listen to a friend's recommendation and stayed at the Opposite House. Keeping in mind that he did not even stay there. I HAVE NO REGRETS AND I AM GLAD I DID ! Although double the price of the Raffles, Ritz, Four Seasons,... More
