VUE - Come as a guest, come back as a friend!
VUE Hotel Hou Hai is the new upscale design boutique hotel in the centre of Beijing. This one-of-a-kind brand new hotel is located in the stunning surroundings of Houhai and offers an unforgettable staycation experience in a design combination of traditional Chinese architecture with contemporary and futuristic influences.
A major adaptive-reuse exercise, the hotel comprises a series of quasi-historic buildings from the 1950s. Upon entering the hotel you will discover a series of landscaped gardens, a bakery café fronting the bustle of the hutongs, a signature restaurant in a warehouse, a rooftop bar overlooking the lake and over 80 rooms and suites, several with private gardens or with views overlooking the park or lake.
The hotel compound comprises a series of buildings with a variety of architectural styles and approaches. Although designed primarily in the Chinese vernacular, the different buildings span a range of ornamentation from highly decorative roof eaves, characterful gargoyles, sculptured balconies and latticed window frames, to pared-back jack roofs and plain brickwork wall finishes. This diverse collection is brought together by color and landscaping.
All the buildings are conceptually draped in attractive shades of gray, echoing the palette of the surrounding hutongs, upon which key architectural details have been highlighted in a contemporary gold patina.
The VUE property is designed around a central narrative inspired by its locale or culture. For VUE Houhai Beijing, the narrative drew inspiration from the lake and its animal inhabitants.
Bold, cutting-edge, surprising....that is how we describe the rooms at VUE Hotel. Beyond the contemporary aesthetic, every room is designed with your needs in mind.
The hotel offers 80 rooms fragmanted into 11 different room types. Every single type is unique and designed for a memorable stay.
From the intelligent lighting system to the room-wide Bluetooth audio system, from the in-room coffee machine to the hypoallergenic, 600-thread-count sheets, comfort and convenience are always at the forefront. All guest rooms feature spacious bathrooms, fully stocked with L’Occitane products. Ancient history, modern convenience, and futuristic design come together in harmony for an unforgettable guest experience at VUE Hotel.
VUE Hotel is located in Beijing, in the Hutong district of Houhai. The hotel compound sits on the edge of the picturesque Houhai lake, and neighbours a verdant public park, as well as historic Hutong houses which are still used by local inhabitants today. Located along Houhai’s banks are a district of bars and vibrant cafes.
The hotel looks out onto Houhai lake, while Prince Gong’s Mansion and the Former Residence of Soong Ching-ling are within walking distance. The hutongs are best explored on foot or by bike or rickshaw — just like the locals do. Stunning attractions such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park, and the Temple of Heaven, are easily accessible by car or public transport.
