"Decent hotel, many grups"
Magnificent gospitality, andt he room was spacious and clean. The rooms are large and clean with many modern amenities - mini fridge, in-room safe, flat screen TV, good air conditioning. The free wi-fi is fast and reliable, they offer a large breakfast buffet with lots of western and chinese items, but it can be extremley crwded, with the large groups that often stay a hotel. Despite the large size of dining room, we smetimes had a difficulcy to find a seat. It is a short cab ride from Quianmen pedestrian street, and Dashilan shopping area. Also close to old hutong neighbourhoods. I am not sure if we can smoke or not in hotel, but the room smeled certainly some smoke, but it seems normal as so many people in China smoke. The bed was hard like everywhere in China, but I found it pretty comfrtable.
"Great service and ammenities"
I stay in a lot of 5 star hotels for work and pleasure in Beijing and Opposite House is the best. The service is personalised without being to much, lots of great additions, well stocked mini bar for free turndown service with fantastic cookies. The Sanlitun area is also great for shopping and eating. The other main reason I stay here is proximity to Beijing Airport.
"a perfect home in Beijing"
I like the hotel: the design (feels to me like a fusion of Japanese-Scandinavian, especially the rooms), the rooms, the service in general, the laundry service is excellent, the helpful staff, the little presents and hand-written notes, the free mini-bar, the restaurants, the wine and food selections, the personal attention from the manager, the ipads, the art, the car service, the airport pickup service... I also like the neighbourhood: bars, restaurants, shops.
"Nice alternative boutique hotel "
The hotel is within a very convenient complex where local restaurants, bars and shopping areas are right next door. The hotel alone also has some of the best restaurant in town. Room is spacious, clean and very minimalistic if this is your cup of tea. I personally like this type of hotel. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Everything can be at a touch of iPad in your room too so language barrier will be lesser concern especially when you are foreigner trying to order room service for example.The only problem is that if you need to travel around town, traffic in the area can be quite bad.
I had a great time at this hotel. The food is superb, the facilities wonderful and the staff' Well the staff was just off the chart. From helping me get a taxi, tickets to the acrobat show or a roll of duct tape (my bag was falling apart) the staff was wonderful. Btw according to TimeOut-Beijing the burger at The Opposite House is considered one of the best in Beijing; I needed a burger and yes it was. Two of the restaurant managers convinced me to stay in house for dinner one night and have the Peking duck as they said it was excellent; I did and it was. Great hotel, great convenient location.
