Stretch Armstrong's Pick: The Opposite House. Beijing, China
FROM THE ARCHIVES
Originally published April 2011
The Opposite House is a super modern hotel located in the center of the city. It’s a tall, bright emerald glass building from the outside, and inside the rooms are sleek and minimal with clean lines, natural wood and glass furniture, crisp white linens and contemporary art. There is also a collection of restaurants and bars on site, and a pool and spa in the hotel. It looks a little over the top, but I think I could manage! Rates start around $350 per night.
