My wife and I visited Hong Kong and Beijing on vacation, and after staying at the infamous Peninsula in Hong Kong, we were nervous about what to expect in the harsher-seeming Beijing. When we got into the city it was freezing cold and dark, and we were tired from a day of travel. So we were truly blown away upon entering The Opposite House. Not only is every single aspect of the building fantastic, our hotel room was the most amazing I've ever stayed in. Every detail throughout the hotel is attended to, and the staff could not have been more inviting and helpful. The front desk (despite the fact everything is wireless and they don't even have a front desk!) and concierge are out of this world, attending to every whim and need. We were so impressed by our room that we now want to remodel our home to look like it!
One of the coolest parts of the hotel is the pool. We've never seen anything like this before! It's a must see.
The location is fabulous - sandwiched between two new outdoor/indoor malls with tons of high-end shopping and restaurants (Miu Miu, Alexander Wang, Apple, Balenciaga, etc.).
We ate breakfast each morning in the hotel's lobby restaurant and the food was superb, not to mention so reasonably priced.
We highly, highly recommend The Opposite House to anyone traveling to Beijing. It is located in the Sanlitun area with subway just a 10 minute walk away.
One highlight of the hotel to note is that the in-room mini bar is FREE! With lots of beer, sodas and water.
