In the ancient city of Beijing lies an undeniably modern and chic hotel. The Opposite House, designed by Japanese architect Kango Kama, has an emerald green glass exterior that stands out even among the city’s opulent palaces, temples and huge stone walls. One cannot help but be impressed by the elegance, grandeur, and exquisite styles in this glorious Beijing hotel.
A step inside the spacious, open lobby reveals exhibits such as a Mao jacket and a qi pao dress – skilfully created from broken pieces of Chinese porcelain. More gallery than check-in area, it continues with two flat reflecting pools that sit beneath a ceiling draped with wire mesh curtains.
In keeping with the hotel’s exterior, the 99 guest suites and rooms blend modernity with tradition. They have a calming Zen-like feeling, minimalist open-plan designs, and they are outfitted with brushed oak floors, interesting panelling, and crisp neutral-coloured bed linens.
The Opposite House’s intriguing collection of restaurants offers everything from a taste of the Mediterranean to traditional Chinese cuisine. Whatever you fancy you’ll be sure to find something to make you smile and satisfy your appetite. There is definitely no shortage of even more awesomely designed spaces, as you will quickly discover as you dine, unwind or dance the night away!
The Opposite House truly is a magical Beijing hotel and a fabulous base from which to explore the many delights of the fascinating capital city of China.
