The Opposite House (Yúshě) Review

If you want a taste of 21st-century China then look no further than this place (located in the heart of the Sanlitun nightlife district), a prime contender for being Beijing's best boutique hotel: designed by award-winning Kengo Kuma, the look and feel of this place is unlike anywhere else, featuring a huge atrium and contemporary art in the stunning lobby, plus spacious and warm guest rooms kitted out with natural wood and Scandi-Asian minimalist chic along with a bevy of splendid restaurants and bars abuzz with the city's cool kids. Service is a delight. The modern and uncluttered style extends to the casually dressed staff who employ every effort to make you feel right at home. Technology is strongly embraced too, from the iPad check-in service (no boring front desks here) to the touch-panel lighting and Bose speakers for your iPod in the rooms. High rollers will want to follow the example set by the likes of Beyonce when in town and ensconce themselves in the two-level penthouse with private rooftop terrace. Due to the hotel's location, many of Beijing's best bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep; as a result, however, traffic here is some of the worst in the city.
