[photopress:hotels_design_emperor.jpg,full,alignright]The first Design Hotel in China will open in Beijing on April 18. The 55-room hotel, The Emperor, is near the former Imperial Palace of the Forbidden City in an old tree-lined avenue.
The building which holds The Emperor was the former premises of the Qinghua University Alumni and features a classical Chinese brick facade and roof. Beijing Dacheng Yongan Zhiye, developed the building into a hotel project with their international partners.
The design of the rooms seems to be unique. They are described as follows: all furnishings are connected to each other by an invisible line, appearing as if the wall flows into the bed, continuing into the sofa and finally to the desk. The prevailing colour in all rooms is white, highlighted with fiery orange, lime green, deep ocean blue as well as slate grey. You probably have to see it in reality to appreciate it to the full.
For business the main meeting room located on the rooftop for 20 persons can be used as a private event space. On both the first and second floors are private meeting spaces.
