You’ll find The Opposite House to be a wonderful contradiction. Taking its name from the guesthouse which sits on the opposite side of a traditional courtyard home, the hotel blends old and new design elements seamlessly to create a throughly unique experience in the heart of Beijing’s Taikoo Li Sanlitun district.
The first thing you’re sure to notice is the hotel’s striking and modern emerald glass exterior, inspired by a traditional Chinese wood lattice. Chosen by eminent architect Kengo Kuma, it conveys calm while both reflecting the vibrant street life outside and providing a soft screen to those on the inside. 98 contemporary studios and a duplex penthouse benefit from the same clean and uncluttered design as are found in the hotel’s communal areas. Underfloor heating ensures rooms are always cosy while bathrooms are adorned with spa-inspired features, deep soak oak bath tubs and rain showers.
When you’re not busy discovering the stainless-steel pool – a masterpiece in lighting and atmosphere, you’ll enjoy exploring the hotel’s four restaurants and a cocktail bar. Venture outside of the hotel’s welcoming walls and you’ll find that you’re well placed to explore Beijing’s diplomatic quarter Sanlitun as well as the Unesco World heritage Hidden City, the Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven.
