After staying in several hotels over staying six months in China last year, I avoided staying at The Opposite House to stay at Starwood Hotels in Beijing to earn points. I came back this week to TOH because each person I talked to who has been to Beijing recommended it... strongly. Now, I see that they are right.
Although, the outside attendants are a little slow to help, but inside the service is immediate. The foyer is very impressive and the art is always changing. The overall feeling is modern and warm, somehow.
The rooms are a white linen and light wood mix that is clean. The amenities (like a completely FREE mini-bar) are wonderful. There is easy and updated technology everywhere. The wood tub in the bathroom is unusual and beautiful.
It is hard to use a wealth of words to describe a place that is designed using so many excellent choices without sounding overblown. Just stay here. You will see for yourself.
