The Luxury Clad in paneled emerald glass, this 99-room hotel was designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma with a singular artistic aim: to transplant the outdoors into an interior hotel space. Dressed in brushed oak, and red and black tinted glass, The Opposite House's signature feature is an open six-floor atrium. Guest rooms are minimally designed with crème paneling and bedding, and oak-wood floors and furnishings. The open layout maximizes space, with neat touches including complimentary Wi-Fi and minibar, iPod docks connected to Bosch ceiling speakers, and a spa-inspired shower room with Ba Yan Ka La bathroom goodies. Guests enjoy a complimentary guided cultural walk of Beijing on Saturdays.
