The Opposite House, Beijing

Designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the style, layout and architecture of The Opposite House indicates a seamless fusion of the old and the new.

The bold emerald glass exterior, inspired by traditional Chinese wood lattice, reflects the dynamic atmosphere of the Taikoo Li Sanlitun area. The large central atrium is simple but striking, showcasing art installations from some of China’s top emerging artists. The hotel’s contemporary design continues its presence in the 99 guestrooms where you’ll find uncluttered interiors, clean lines and natural wood floors. All rooms are fitted with king sized beds, rain showers, deep soaking oak tubs and LCD TVs, in addition to luxury amenities like 400 thread count cotton linens, French press coffee and mood lighting systems.


Two celebrated restaurants, Jing Yaa Tang and The Village Cafe, serve regional favourites alongside fine international cuisine, whilst Mesh, the trendy lounge bar, offers a selection of original cocktails.

The Guest Experience Team provide a personalised yet unobtrusive service, and are on hand to book you a table at a top restaurant or simply provide advice on the best excursions and experiences to enjoy in the city.
