The Opposite House by Swire Hotels is one of four Houses in The House Collective. Located in Taikoo Li Sanlitun a vibrant open plan shopping, dining and entertainment destination developed by Swire Properties, The Opposite House was designed by Kengo Kuma, one of Japan’s most celebrated architects. The House’s 99 guest studios include nine spacious suites and a penthouse duplex with a 240 sqm roof terrace. More than half of all the studios are over 70 sqm and all are strikingly simple with natural wooden floors and subtle touches of Chinese décor. The Atrium of the House presents itself as a contemporary art gallery, showcasing the work of exciting artists from the region and further afield. The House also has three restaurants, Superfly, the casual Sichuan bar restaurant that celebrates the culture of the everyday through electric vibes, bites and drinks; Jing Yaa Tang, chef Li Dong’s Michelin starred masterpiece of fine Chinese cuisine includin g its famous Peking duck; and Frasca, the modern Italian eatery serving classics crafted. Finally, Union, the cocktail bar designed by AvroKO, embodies the spirit of 1920s modernism and is the place to savor silk road inspired cocktails over thoughtful conversations.

High-class hotel with superb rooms, restaurants, and facilities. The staff was fantastic, greatly facilitating our stay by helping to set up Alipay and organizing excursions to the Great Wall and other sights. They also spoke fairly good English, anticipated our every need, and were in general very attentive. Minibar consumption and a little gift each night before going to bed are included in the room price. Definitely one of the best managed hotels I have ever stayed at.

When you enter the hotel you are already in awe of the place: a peaceful oasis with beautiful art in in the middle of bustling Sanlitun. We had a Studio70, which is a gorgeous spacious room in understated colours and wood. The B&O bluetooth speaker was a nice touch. Impeccably clean. Lush towels (lots of them). Walk in shower and great wooden bath tub. Complimentary mini bar. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. They take their time to get to know you and will arrange transport, dinner reservations, bicycles, basically everything you need. Gym is well decked out with free weights, cable machine, and very good quality treadmills, bikes etc. Beautiful swimming pool too. Lots of restaurant options in-house. All great. Saturday night the hotel bar Union was obviously the place to be for the hip 'n happening Beijing crowd. Live DJ, the place was buzzing. The location right in the middle of Sanlitun is excellent. We made great use of the cool hotel bikes to visit all the sites in Beijing. Love the Opposite House!

Interior decor, Union, kindness of staff, pool, location
Quality of food at breakfast - could be much more delicious in terms of quality of food and not least prep/taste - you just need a new head chef ;)

I chose The Opposite House for our wedding night and it was perfect. We loved it. The design is great. The rooms are extremely well appointed, but uncluttered, spacious and bright. The breakfast was brilliant, the best hotel breakfast I've ever had. The restaurants and bars are all great. The Michelin-starred Jing Yaa Tang had the best Chinese food I've eaten in 11 years here. What elevated a fabulous hotel to the superlative was the service, which was efficient but unfussy, a sure sign of class, and all the staff speak great English. I can't recommend The Opposite House highly enough and will be back for our first anniversary, if not before.
If I had to find one little fault, the water in the swimming pool could have been a couple of degrees warmer. I thought it was fine but my wife found it a little too fresh.

The cool and thoughtful design of the hotel is what drew me in at first. With the added benefits of amazing location, comfort, and amenities. There are not many hotels better than this in the world. If it's between a Ritz Carlton and The Opposite House, the Opposite House wins a hundred times over.
Breakfast is sad... bad quality, very few choices. That's true with both the continental and what's on the menu. I remembered it to be better. Hope it will be better next time. I'll be back at this hotel for sure, despite bad breakfast.

The room was great, bright, minimal (in a good way), perfect for working. The staff were very kind, and very helpful
A bit noisy at night. I guess the higher floors fare better (I was on the 3rd floor).

Very Poor
Its location.
my friend in the room requested a room cleaning at 6pm when we were told there is no housekeeping service after 5pm. i was upset because i paid full fares, not reduced fare; why shall i be getting reduced services? it was the worst hotel experience i have had in 10 years in beijing thats why i cut my stay short. a hotel in beijing who charges me CNY2300 a night (more than peninsula in beijing) tells me there is no housekeeping after 5pm. i understand it was due to covid yet no one explained this to me before hand, only when i questioned why i was charged full fare for reduced services. i was disappointed and aggravated. i will never stay here again, it was insulting.

We have stayed at the Opposite House for years whenever to come to visit family and friends in Beijing ( my husband and our 6 years old daughter). The ambience here is just superb: Cool & Artistic, yet very Peaceful. I cant say enough nice things about the service and the deco. Minimalistic yet warm and homey. Nothing in Beijing nor Shanghai beats the experience here. Yvett, Lynn and Joyce from the front receiption are super kind, helpful and efficient! So were Jessica from restaurant Fresca.My parents joined us for a staycation and it was a lovely experience for all of us.
If I have to be really picky, the coffee at breakfast can be more tasty. I find the hairdryer in the room a bit heavy and bulky ( not the best fit with the beautiful minimalistic style room).

Staying at the Opposite House is a great way to treat yourself to a very comfortable Staycation!! The facilities are incredible and with numerous restaurants, bars and shopping centers a few steps away, it is a great place to relax. I had a Studio 70 room with was HUGE with awesome amenities and the breakfast was really great as well! Will definitely be back!
Pool area is a bit dark...

The service was terrific. From a cute complimentary mini bar to a little fruit and nut plate delivery upon arrival. I asked for a late check out and it was no problem. The location was incredible! Close to many shops and restaurants which made walking around fun. The bathtub was awesome!
No early check in. Since staycations are a thing right now an early check in would have been appreciated. No cart for the room service which meant the dirty dishes stayed in room until check out.
