Expert Review

This boutique hotel (opened in early 2007) is located in the old Legation quarter on the east side of the Forbidden City. Based around a central courtyard, the 89 minimalist rooms are divided into three categories: ‘suite,’ ‘fashion’ and ‘court.’ Aimed at guests with a penchant for eclectic modernism, the mostly-white decor blends earthy tones with stone grey and bamboo green fabrics to infuse color and warmth. Each features flatscreen TV, broadband Internet access, and a sparse bathroom. Artsy embellishments, such as sculpted lamp stands and bespoke designed furniture are nice touches. There’s also a private bar with three private cube rooms, a restaurant serving fusion western cuisine, a library, and a fitness center.
