This is quite simply the coolest hotel we've ever stayed in, chic, trendy and stylish almost everything about the place impressed us. Luxurious beds and bathrooms, great swimming pool and 1st class service - the roaming ipad reception people could never do enough to help you. We planned to stay for 3 nights and extended another 4 and they couldn't...

This hotel is truly exceptional. All details are perfect: the architecture is truly fantastic, rooms are a designer masterpiece. Luxury lies is in the minimalistic approach, and while other 5-star hotels in China follow the opulence path, here the perfection is reached by the purity of lines and materials. A bit detached form the city, maybe: this hotel could be...

Truly beautiful hotel. One of the loveliest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are minimal but very comfortable. We stayed in the smallest sized room, but very spacious. The service is great. The art in the foyer is amazing. The hotel restaurants are lovely. The location is good. Near to the subway. But otherwise in a mall, though...

Went for the full body massage and facial during my 2-week business stay in Beijing Sanlitun district. 200% worth it! Architect Kengo Kuma really knocked himself out with this hotel. So exquisite! Would stay there if I could afford it. Such a sense of serenity and uniqueness to this place. Highly recommended. For those like me who want the experience...

This is my first time in China, and I was not expecting the progressive, innovative, and contemporary feel I've encounter thus far. And that's is exactly how I would describe this hotel. The decor is simple, understated, yet classic, high end and homely. It's located at a very convenient location where you can access high end shops, as well as...

This is one of the truly great hotels of the world. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The decor, modern and minimalist. A true showcase for a revolving collection of local art that always seems to be changing. We love staying here. A home away from home with an X factor. It's not a big hotel, but it doesn't fall...

I really enjoyed this place. Conveniently located in a posh neighborhood, but still close to metro and some attractions. Great wooden bathtub and two wooden sinks. Great choice of toiletries. Excellent decoration, a highly efficiend check-in and checkout. A pure luxury - all the items in minibar complimentary, and missing items replaced every day. Art in the lobby makes an...

Even though this hotel is only about 5 blocks from our home, we go here for weekends “away”. It is situated right in the heart of San Li Tun with all of its restaurants, bars and great shopping. Step in and you won’t find a reception desk – young trendy hotel service people find you sitting on the couch and...
