The Opposite House Beijing

98

Expect Avant garde, minimalist interiors. The prices aren’t so minimalist, but perhaps that’s not surprising considering this hotel’s prime position in the centre of Sanlitun. There’s also a rather edgy Spanish-Italian fusion restaurant. One for the wealthy hipsters.

Location

Right in the heart of Sanlitun, an area which is quickly gentrifying from a string of seedy expat bars into a colossal paradise of shops, excellent restaurants and bars.

Style & character

Entering the Opposite House is like walking into a giant, dimly lit exhibition space which does not appear to be a hotel at all. Very avant grade and very Japanese.

The Inside

The Opposite House greets you with its striking emerald glass exterior. This colour, chosen by eminent Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma, conveys serenity and calmness. Its stunning contemporary design is inspired by traditional Chinese wood lattice and reflects the vibrant street life surrounding the hotel.

The Outside

Breathtaking from the outside and equally stunning within, the design is one of seamless space. The house is a vibrant mix of modern and traditional, at the heart of which is a large central atrium where the conventional boundaries of hotel activities are subtly blurred.

Service & facilities

Since there is no reception desk, you will be gently accosted by a young person dressed in black who will check you in on a portable computer. It’s not as bad as it sounds.
