Very nice hotel in Sanlitun. Atmosphere is very relaxing and quite despite we are in the middle of sanlitun. Service is very good. Only service that is still not good is internet that, despite it has improved over the year, it is still not what you would expect in this kind of hotel

It was an unplanned staycation that turned out to be a perfect weekend. The service was thoughtful and the rooms were great. The hotel is at the northern section of Sanlitun and enjoys some quiet while being extremely close to the vibrant bar and pun scene at the southern part.

If I'm ever back in Beijing again I would definitely book here again in an instant! From the daily little gifts and notes to the incredibly friendly and experienced staff they really make you feel like a part of the family. The restaurants are incredible and definitely one of the best in the area. You know a place is good...

First time in Beijing and I really wanted to experience a great hotel. Picked the Opposite House based on reviews, location and that it was not a typical North American chain. I was very happy we stayed there. Aside from the obvious beauty of the space, what really made it stand apart for me was the excellent service. Super friendly...

We have stayed at the Opposite House on many occasions and neither hotel nor staff have failed to deliver excellent experience and service. It´s a great place to stay, very convenient location, all the staff speak excellent English and go the extra mile to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Great stay at The Opposite House as always. I was welcomed with a smile and given a nice room on the 6th floor. Much nicer staying at The opposite House than in a large conference hotel which was only 15 minutes drive away!

This is a great hotel. Designed by Kenzo Kuma it is close to the Ambassador District in the North East side of town near the IT Store and other high end retailers. In theory, you could spend your whole visit here: it has two restaurants, a cool café, a small gym and a lovely swimming pool in the basement. The...

Had a wonderful stay at the Opposite House. Beautiful, minimalist rooms. Love the packed, free minibar. Staff is very competent and attentive. All around great experience - I wish there were more hotels like this around the world!

Located right in the heart of Sanlitun, everything is at your doorstep in terms of restaurants, bars, shopping. Perhaps not the perfect spot for Tiananmen and all that, but if you're in Beijing regularly and have already done the main tourist spots, then this is the go-to hotel if you ask me. Fantastic design throughout. Really great art pieces and...
