Reviewed 13 September 2017

This hotel is a peaceful site in Beijing . The rooms are very generous clean and comfortable.the staff are attentive and there is a fine breakfast cafe in the lobby offering tables both inside and out. Open access free mini bar offers late night choices.Taxis are not an issue in this city where traffic is chaotic. Quiet location despite the busy night bars along the outside road good shopping nearby.
Highly recommend this accomodation.

Room Tip: Low rise hotel with all rooms offering fantastic accommodation

So happy to hear you found the hotel an oasis in the busy city that Beijing is. Breakfast inside or outside is always a great way to start your day and happy to know you were comfortable in your room.

My first time here and will certainly not be the last! Modern and chic room with a Japanese zen feeling to it, it makes a hotel stay a more home-like experience. I appreciate the personalized hand-written notes and dropping the face mask and the hand cream in the room - that was a nice touch :)

I stayed in the standard room and it already feels very spacious. It has the minimalist design (feels like you are staying in a Muji store), but NOT cold and pretentious. A lot of times these urban hotels are style over substance, but not The Opposite House.

The Chinese restaurant at the hotel also has yummy food.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to others!!

It was my third time to stay with The Opposite House. When I arrived, the team welcomed me like an old friend by addressing my name, taking me to the room and even planning my trip. Studio 70 was very spacious with simple design. very luxury, comfort and relaxing. I will come back next time for sure.

We loved it! 3 families with 5 kids (from 6 to 8y old) travelling 4 days in a large city was quite a challenge. We were lucky to be recommended The Opposite House. Our stay was perfect, the staff is super helpful, kind and patient. Rooms are amazingly large, quiet and bright, beds are over the top. Last but not least, there is a large pool, a welcomed oasis after tiring visits. And the outdoor terrace is great for quick lunches or drinks. Many restaurants, shops and bars are at walking distance and the area is safe and neat. PERFECT CHOICE!

Favourite spot: the terrace of the village cafe, right next to the street, separated by a line of bamboo plants. Perfect way to relax on a Saturday afternoon and get totally zen.

Staff: amazingly nice.

Ambiance: great.

.... And get one of their semi electric bikes to discover the city!
