A Beijing Hotel Inspired by the City's Hutongs

Crowning the Ole Scheeren–designed Guardian Arts Centre, PuXuan Hotel and Spa adds culinary and wellness cred to Forbidden City.

The Lobby outfitted with ShangXia furniture.

PuXuan Hotel and Spa
Location: Beijing
Designer: MQ-studio

On offer: Situated atop the seemingly floating Guardian Arts Centre by Ole Scheeren in the WangFuJing District, the 116-room PuXuan takes its cues from Chinese siheyuan, traditional courtyard homes found in the maze-like Beijing neighborhoods, hutongs.

Standout features: Culinary highlights include Rive Gauche, chef Ivan Miguez’s take on the French bistronomy genre, and Fu Chun Ju where chef Waikit Yeung puts a modern spin on classic Cantonese recipes. The spa offers treatments by LVMH beauty brand CHA LING, l’Esprit du Thé, known for fusing Chinese wellness philosophies with a French sensibility.
