Not only was the hotel fabulous due to the location, free mini bar, free WiFi, and the many restaurants inside the hotel, but the customer service was what really made the experience great for me. I would definitely come back if I ever find myself in Beijing again.

The Opposite House is very stylish and customer friendly hotel. All staff were very helpful and gave very good restaurant recommendations (including hand drawn maps to help us find it). I find it a very pleasant surprise that the minibar was completely free - not that I actually used it but its a nice touch. I would stay there again... More

This must be the most surprising hotel i stayed in. Nothing is as you expect it, the reception desk is almost invisible as you come through the huge door. the art work in the lobby is superb, and you feel at peace from the very few minutes. The rooms are impressively minimal, great wooden floor, wooden bathroom, amazing atmosphere, and... More

We stayed just one night and loved it from the moment we arrived. The hotel itself is such a refreshing change from the large hotels chains. The modern design, and art work in the foyer is very cool, but not at all pretentious. The room itself lived up to expectations, it was light and airy, and spotlessly clean. The slick... More

It's nice to find a boutique hotel that lives up to the promise of boutique hotels. Modern designs, attentive service, delicious food, tranquil rooms, and innovative technology marked my outstanding stay at The Opposite House.
