The Opposite House

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

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.
