ChinaTravel.net: What are the most romantic aspects of the Opposite House, Beijing?
The Opposite House: The entire stay is a unique and personal experience. It's just like staying at a friend's home, with a warm welcome, convenience, absolutely no fuss and stunningly simple contemporary design for couples. We have an art piece in the Living Room called "Beijing Memory 1" and "Beijing Memory 2" by Li Xiaofeng. He made the 'wearable art' with shattered antique blue and white Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain, and sewed them into clothing. It's like a lovely couple living in the house.

The Opposite House: Both Sureno and Bei are very romantic places to dine.
Sureno is the Mediterranean restaurant located on the lower ground level of The Opposite House. The warm interiors boast an open kitchen and a wood-fired oven that evoke the casual style of the Mediterranean, where couples can also watch the live action while they dine.
Bei features contemporary Asian food, inspired by the cuisines of Northern China, Japan and Korea. Dishes draw from traditional flavors with influences from modern advances in cuisine and are composed of natural ingredients sourced locally and from abroad. This marriage aspires to maintain a delicate balance of flavor and texture while creating a new dining experience. We have three private dining rooms and one semi-private room with four tables for couples to dine.

The Opposite House: Sanlitun Village comprises two sites on the north and south to us, and our hotel. Built around the bustling hutong of Sanlitun, taking inspiration from the courtyards and alleyways of Beijing’s past and mixing it with its more worldly cosmopolitan present, the development includes over 200 shops, plus cafes, restaurants and bars, and eight-screen MEGABOX cinema, a unique cultural entertainment space.
Sanlitun area is filled with vibrant watering holes and street carts serving local snacks. It also has a great mix of trendy shops and local residents, which best represents the ever-changing cityscape of Beijing.
