The Opposite House

From the outside, The Opposite House is clearly different from many of the other 5* hotels in the city - huge wooden entrance doors contrast with the striking green glass exterior and lead into an informal lobby area.

This ultra-modern and contemporary hotel was designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and built largely using reclaimed materials.

The 99 rooms plus one penthouse are light and airy with an uncluttered apartment feel. Some rooms have a balcony with daybed which is a rare luxury in the city, others have a jacuzzi and the penthouse is set over two floors with a large roof terrace and fully fitted kitchen.


The Opposite House is in San Li Tun village, a vibrant open plan complex of shops, restaurants and cafes located in the heart of Beijing.


  • A 22 metre stainless steel swimming pool
  • 4 restaurants serving both regional and Mediterranean cuisine
  • 2 bars
  • Contemporary art gallery with artwork changing every three months
  • 2 spa treatment rooms
  • Gym
  • Valet parking

Why we like it

Not necessarily for everyone but the Opposite House offers a refreshing change from the normal 5* hotels in the city. A boutique hotel with a funky and contemporary style, a great atmosphere and a superb location.
