Surrounded by historic Hutong houses and in an aim to fit into the neighborhood, the hotel comprises a series of artistically transformed quasi-historic buildings from the 1950’s.

Stepping inside, it is very easy to see that the interior is much different from the historic-inspired exterior. The dark reception area is full of angles and lines of light that create a bold first impression.

The hotel rooms are unexpectedly divided with the use of colors, tones and materials, creating an artistic touch, while hidden lighting adds a soft ambient light to the room. Some of the hotel rooms also have private balconies with tree and lake views.
