Most recent review:

What I liked:

Location in the Art District

What the hotel could do better:

Cleanliness of rooms and public space has to be improved

Friendliness of staff is non-existent.

What should be a hotel "with soul" in Beijing ends up being just an old, somewhat dirty, hotel without any charm.

Hotel Description

Overall the story of Beijing’s recent development is one of practicality over aesthetics. One place that’s not entirely true is the 798 Art Zone, the designated arts district — think of it as something a little like New York’s SoHo, except a little more spread-out, a little more organized, and, well, in Beijing. It’s the only place a hotel like Yi House could possibly exist.

With some notable exceptions the Beijing hotel scene tends toward the utilitarian. This, of course, is one of those exceptions. The district, the clientele, the contemporary Chinese art world, all of these things give Yi House license to flex its creative muscles a bit. This former crystal factory has had a residential-luxe makeover, and though it’s decidedly boutique-sized — just thirty rooms — it’s not a case of personality compensating for rough edges. There are no rough edges.

The interior style is equal parts classic Deco influence and contemporary Chinese. A proper luxury boutique hotel, these days, is more than a lodging — it’s a meeting point, a social fixture. Gossip Bar aims to be the next Chaoyang hotspot and the restaurant, Fennel, with a particular focus on fresh seafood, is a part of the city’s new movement towards creative international cuisine.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

Please note: Complimentary shuttle service is provided from the hotel to Sanlitun Chaoyang at 10AM and 6PM.
