Hotel G

[17/12/09] 

The Hottest Spot in Town

Sometimes you need to get away from the big hotels to capture the essence of a city. By staying in boutique hotels, you’re on the crest of a city’s development, at the heart of its freshest persona. Intelligent, innovative, sometimes aggressively individualistic, Asia’s boutiques are some of the funkiest houses of rest on the planet.

 



In Beijing, the 1960s retro-inspired Hotel G, brainchild of architect and designer Mark Lintott, is an explosion of colour in a city known for years of drab sameness. Despite the outside resembling a Rubik’s Cube, the 110-guest rooms harp back to an era of glamour and sophistication, when it was ok to wear fur and when shaking your head from side to side was an entire dance form. Minimalist yet chic, interiors blend work and play better than a conference in Macau. What’s more, there’s Nintendo Wiis on request, complimentary local calls, mini bar, secretarial services, breakfast and Wi-Fi. You can chill out with Beijing’s new executive class in the Scarlet wine bar before trying your luck at Japanese fine dining in Morio and for afterwards, the hotel is located in the city’s entertainment hotspot, Sanlitun.

Go straight for the G spot.
