  2. “Everything about this hotel oozed style - the lobby area was so cool, the rooms beautiful (floor to ceiling windows, amazing bathtub, great products/amenities, large rooms!). On top of all of this, the staff was amazing. I've never met a more accommodating team. They helped us book a car to the Great Wall, they helped us find amazing spots for dinner, they got our cabs and wrote all the driver's information down for added security. On top of ALL of this, the hotel manager actually gave us his spare cellphone in case we needed anything - which we did! There were a few times when our driver was lost and we had no idea how to communicate where to go. This level of service was just above and beyond. It makes me sad to think that as this hotel gets more popular these types of special touches just won't be possible for everyone. But they deserve the credit. It truly was an amazing stay!”

  4. “The people who work at the opposite house make you feel instantly at home from the moment you arrive. There are no check-in desks--you are welcomed to their couches and given a bottle of water while you relax.There are free items in their mini bar with excellent coffee and snacks.They upgraded us to a larger room and included a free breakfast with our stay. They helped plan our days outing with taxi cards in Chinese. The hotel is interesting, beautiful and comfortable and within easy reach by taxi of all the sights.”

  7. “I was upgraded on arrival and had a very big room. The design fits my taste which is pure minimalism. The bar is a great place to hang out at night and the location was spectacular.”

  8. “Fun location, terrific ambience, the room was practical, comfortable and high design yet simple and clean. The food in the hotel was very good.My favorite was the wood tub, a must bathing experience. Was greeted by name by manager who welcomed me and said goodbye which was personal and lovely.”

  10. “The total experience was everything + more!As a hotel designer, I loved the interiors – even the public loos were in total designer mode. The wooden bathtub was one of the best guest experiences ever – I immediately filled it with the fragrant bath salts provided + had a soothing soak before bed. On my bedside, was a face mask made by the Shanghainese brand Ba Yan Ka La, with a Post It note attached saying ‘Had a long day?’ Nice touch, for a product junkie like me. And I had just come from a long 5+-hour flight from Singapore. The woven amenities bag held everything I needed, + I now use it as my makeup bag for my handbag. A nice memory of a great stay.I marvelled at the art in all of the public spaces - what caught my eye were the broken blue + white ceramics to form a Chinese gentleman's jacket + a Chinese lady's qi pai. Both pieces were suspended from the ceiling in the Lobby. Quite impressive.The food quality was excellent - I always brought my own food to Beijing in my suitcase for business trips, because I could not eat at the hotels I stayed in previously. I’m so busy during the day; all I want to do is order room service or eat in the hotel at the end of a working day. But to my surprise, my breakfast at Village Café was good + satisfying; my solo dinner at Senero was excellent - the wine list had a half bottle of my favourite Marques de Riscal tempranillo riserva. I sat outside on the patio, watched the pollen fly through the cool spring air + took some awesome photos from dusk to evening. Overall, the service was marvellous – full knowledge on everything I asked for – I arrived at 1 am in the hotel; they got me a steamer delivered to my room. They had iPads to help me with directions to my meetings + printed out maps in Chinese to direct the driver. Tablet, I declare full marks on this stay at Opposite House – Swire Hotels has the coolest hospitality protocol of any of the hotel chains now.”

  12. “The hotel and the rooms were beautiful, minimal, comfortable, tranquil- utterly gorgeous. This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. The staff were gracious, helpful, and a pleasure to work with. The neighborhood in which the hotel is located is the richest and most modern in Beijing. I looked forward to working out every morning in the gym and then having a nice breakfast at the sun filled Village Cafe. I felt very much at home here and miss it already. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
