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...

Although I am not a fan of minimalism, it was the flawless service, amazing staff, understated luxury, helpful concierge, smart bellmen... and all fine details which made my stay so wonderful. Warm hospitality extends from the director to house keeping. They even have 2 nice restaurants in house! Don't miss the scallop with celery and coriander in XO sauce at...

I actually hated the hotel after I checked in. The decore is very sterile to my taste. After couple days of stay, I starts to love the place. The service is implacable. The room is very comfortable. Everything is luxurious. If you are senstive to noise, please tell the staff to put you away from the main street as occasional...

We loved staying at The Opposite House. The room we had (Studio 45) was enormous, beautiful and very comfortable. The restaurants were great - we tried both, and the cafe too. But the service is what made this truly special. The staff were unfailingly helpful, friendly and spoke excellent English. We asked one young man at the front desk to...

The service, restaurant and in-house bar options make this my only choice when coming to Beijing on regular business trips. The people make all the difference, aside from the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel itself, as exceptional hospitality is their primary goal, and it certainly shows. You will not be disappointed giving the Opposite House a try!
