Housed in an eye-catching glass cube designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, this is one of Beijing’s most design-oriented hotels. Minimalist rooms are dressed in blonde woods and white furnishings, with spa-style bathrooms and wooden tubs.

The location, right in the middle of Beijing’s main nightlife district, is ideal for night owls and fashionistas.

The pick of the hotel’s in-house restaurants is Jing Yaa Tang, serving traditional wood-fired Peking duck alongside the greatest hits of regional Chinese cooking.

Surrounding area

In the heart of Sanlitun, a little way east of the centre. The Opposite House is integrated into Taikoo Li, a swanky shopping, entertainment and dining area. The adjacent Nali Patio boasts some of Beijing’s liveliest bars and restaurants.

It’s an energetic, all-hours location – perfect for night owls, but not those seeking peace and quiet.

Subway stations aren’t particularly convenient, and Sanlitun is a notorious traffic jam after dark, so transport in and out of the area can be an issue.

China’s vibrant capital captives with its unique melding of ancient wonders, bustling hutongs and modern architecture – the food ain’t bad either. Top of the bill are the Forbidden City, the marvellous palace of China’s greatest Emperors – and the extraordinary Great Wall of China.
