“Contemporary Zen in Sanlitun”

You might be worried that a Japanese minimalistic style hotel would be all style and no substance – in fact, it’s the opposite. You might be concerned that a hotel located amongst the fashionable shops and restaurants in the Sanlitun Taikoo Li would be pretentious and cold – in fact, it’s the exact opposite. Beijing may be chaotic and noisy, but when you stay in what’s easily one of the city’s top hotels, the atmosphere (plus personal touches including night time gifts, free mini bar, and hand written notes) is, well, the complete opposite.
