CITY GUIDE / BEIJING / HOTELS / THE OPPOSITE HOUSE HOTEL

Yet another hotel opens in Beijing, just in time for the Olympic Games - though this boutique hotel, designed by Kengo Kuma, Lyndon Heri and Rossana Hu, has been more anticipated than most. Located in the vibrant Sanlitun district, the striking emerald glass exterior belies a soft, muted interior. Kuma was keen to create the calming effect of an "urban forest" in his use of oak, which extends even to the bathtubs, and the overall green color scheme. Shanghai-based über-chef David Laris is behind the restaurant and bar areas, which are tipped to be this summer's social hot spots. Last minute travelers beware: the hotel is already fully booked until the end of the Games.
