This is my 2nd visit to The Opposite House. If anything, it keeps getting better – if that is even possible. The huge open floor to ceiling interior space is the perfect setting for a display of contemporary Chinese art. The food in the café is superb by any standard. The bar and downstairs restaurant are relaxing and friendly. That said, there are three key qualities that set The Opposite House apart. 1. The Staff: from check-in, to the bar team at Mesh, to gracious and knowledgeable crew in the Café, to the thoughtful house cleaning staff. 2. The Location: The Hotel is located in a wonderful part of town, walking distance to great restaurants, clubs and shops – and a short taxi ride to art galleries and Beijing’s cultural institutions. 3. The Rooms: large, loft-like spaces of simple thoughtful design. Great interplay between white fabrics and light hue wood – and very little else complicating the elegantly spare aesthetic. Oh, and there is the luxuriously long dark pool – so inviting that I went out and bought a swimsuit just to experience it.
