The hotel is extremely well located in the North-East part of Beijing, within the 3rd ring, in Sanlitun. Shopping, restaurants and bars are at walking distance so this is perfect for leisure time.

My husband and I stayed at The Opposite House for 3 nights in August and we had a fabulous stay. We emailed with the hotel prior to our arrival and they recommended some fabulous restaurants and arranged a tour of The Great Wall and the Forbidden City, so we had nothing to worry about when we got there.

This is what you would expect from Swire Hotels, a subsidiary of the Swire Property Group, a major property developer based in Hong Kong.
