The Opposite House

When it comes to hotel rooms, we like our space, and The Opposite House gives us just that with its open floor plans and high ceilings. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, this luxurious offering features an emerald-colored glass façade inspired by traditional Chinese lattice. Each of the 98 studios is simple and chic with pale wood floors (and under-floor heating) and spa-like bathrooms with oak soaking tubs. Guests can choose from four unique on-site dining venues, including the Mediterranean-inspired Sureño and Jing Yaa Tang serving regional Chinese cuisine. For leisure, the hotel offers spa treatments, a dramatic 22-meter stainless steel swimming pool and a contemporary sculpture collection. Shopping and sightseeing are right outside at Taikoo Li Sanlitun, a dining and entertainment district inspired by traditional Beijing neighborhoods.
