The Overview

Updated on September 3, 2014

From the team behind the Face restaurant–bar complexes in Bangkok, Jakarta and Shanghai comes this 16-room hotel housed in a former 1960's Communist Era grammar school. In Mandarin, "zhuang" means village, and in this case, it's the global village that's being alluded to. Indonesian lava-rock statues greet visitors by the lobby while tatami mats mingle with Ming dynasty–style, red-lacquered rosewood furniture and peony print–covered sofas in the guest rooms. Overstuffed beds and deep bathtubs lend a homey touch. Rooms vary a lot in size—opt for No. 305, which squeezes in a cozy parlor into its 20 square meters. The pan-Asian theme continues elsewhere on the premises, where discerning diners can sup at Hazara, Lanna Thai or Jia restaurants.
