The Opposite House
Beijing

Top 10s logo 

The Opposite House is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Boutique Hotels.

Situated at the heart of Beijing in Sanlitun village, The Opposite House is a modern, design-led boutique hotel. This stunning contemporary design is inspired by traditional Chinese wood lattice and reflects the vibrant street life surrounding the hotel. The design is an extraordinary mix of old and new and is not to everyone's immediate taste. Unlike any other hotel interior the wide open lobby, which crackles with excitement, is a work of art in itself. Its well-regarded sculpture collection, inspired by the textile-clad façade of the architecture, represents the best Chinese artists of the moment. There are 98 contemporary rooms with open design, high ceilings and lots of space and natural light. Clever design and thoughtful touches mean that all needs are catered for. Wood is prominent throughout the room design and along with the under floor heating it adds overall warmth and comfort to the hotel. The studio rooms came with spa-inspired bathrooms with luxurious deep soaking oak bathtubs and rain showers. Sureno, their Mediterranean restaurant is wildly popular in town, and the Mesh bar is stylistically a joy to be in, as well as their top cocktails. Its 22m lap pool and fully equipped gym with free weights and Technogym equipment are a great place to relax and work out at the end of a busy day.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
