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 in Beijing's Sanlitun Village features an emerald-colored glass façade inspired by traditional Chinese lattice. Each room is simple and chic, with pale wood floors (with under-floor heating) and spa-like bathrooms with oak bathtubs. Guests can choose from three unique on-site dining venues, including the Mediterranean-inspired Sureño, the casual international Village Café and the cool Mesh lounge serving an eclectic bar menu. For leisure, the hotel offers spa treatment rooms, a dramatic 22-meter stainless steel swimming pool and a contemporary sculpture collection. Luxury shopping and sightseeing are right outside at Sanlitun Village, which offers a modern interpretation of old Beijing.
