My husband and I stayed at The Opposite House for 3 nights in August and we had a fabulous stay. We emailed with the hotel prior to our arrival and they recommended some fabulous restaurants and arranged a tour of The Great Wall and the Forbidden City, so we had nothing to worry about when we got there. The staff at the hotel were all great, very polite and helpful, and English was not a problem. The hotel was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Spotless and modern but homey at the same time. We had breakfast in the mornings, which was light and delicious and we ate at the Italian restaurant one night for dinner when we were so exhausted after sightseeing, also delicious. We had drinks at the bar one night too, the scene was very cool and drinks were tasty. The tours were EXCELLENT. I highly recommended having the hotel arrange your tour with Jerry. His English is perfect, he's super knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Our private car and driver from the hotel made the stay great too since it was so hot. Perfect AC and fresh bottles of water whenever we got n the car. While one of our days was smoggy, it didn't bother us and we enjoyed the sights, shopping and restaurants near the hotel. Overall, I highly recommend The Opposite House. It was the best!

Stayed: August 2013, travelled as a couple

This is what you would expect from Swire Hotels, a subsidiary of the Swire Property Group, a major property developer based in Hong Kong. They are also running a top-rated sister hotel in Hong Kong, the Upper House.

Pros:
1. Up market and trendy location in the middle of Sanlitun Village - great shops, restaurants and an underground supermarket.
2. Extremely quiet rooms - no bustling streets downstairs as the hotel is surrounded by promenade.
3. Very spacious rooms - even if you go for the standard room type.
4. Huge onsen style wooden bath tub - they even put a toy duck there to give you company!
5. Complimentary minibar - local and imported beers, beverages and snacks generously refilled everyday.
6. Free in-room iPad - though you will probably bring along your own device.
7. Full range of sockets - just next to the writing desk - no need to pack your own travel adaptors.

Cons (barely):
1. It might be a bit chilly when you get out of the shower during winter - open plan bathroom without any door.

Service was excellent. A young and enthusiastic team headed by a manageress (apparently trained and relocated from Hong Kong) with fluent English. When they knew I had left my credit card in a countryside restaurant miles away, they took every step to make sure I got it back from locals (which I did on the same evening).

Tips: Make sure you order your breakfast from the menu (if your package includes breakfast). Your choice is not limited to those few items on the buffet table. No extra charge for any item from the menu.

The opposite house is a boutique hotel and is the creation of renowned japonese Architect Kengo Kuma. the room are spacious and very Zen and well adapt to conduct business in the center of Beijing and well located in the well known Sanlitun Village. The room are very simple and the use of wood is everywhere including the bath and the vanity and the sinks (not really efficient for hotel use)
The suite on the 6 floors are very bright and efficient for working and doing business with a long working table and a long bar style of table.
Sureno the Mediterranean restaurant is excellent and even if you do not stay in the hotel it is worth to try it. Jing Yaa Tang provide as well the best duck in Town with an open wooden oven.
The service is great and very personalized.

This is a very nice place. I loved the decoration. Very beautiful works of art on display in the lobby. Our room was very nice, comfortable and well equipped. As well we had a superb breakfast. Regarding the staff, well they were very pleasant and efficient, providing a good quality service. Valet parking available and an Italian restaurant with very good food. Also we enjoyed the spa which is very relaxing. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood. You can book it without restraint.
