Our cozy 3 floor home is a rare find in the city of Beijing. Nestled in a garden setting in the Sanlitun Embassy area we are a relaxed and quiet haven. Close to major tourist sites and with bicycles we can loan you we can offer a perfect stay.
Our house is a three story villa in a compound with “diplomatic” standard security. We are located within walking distance to the American, French, Japanese, and Israeli embassies, and a ten minute bicycle ride to the Sanlitun Embassy District. Subway Line 10 is within walking distance; a launching point for travelers heading to the Forbidden City, the Hutongs of Beijing and beyond.
The private room is on the top floor of the house ‘attic style’ with a large south facing balcony (1.7 m²) which overlooks an extensive public garden with trees and a pond. The private balcony has a table and chairs to sit and read or relax; take in an evening breeze or catch some morning sun. The ground floor garden patio area is also at guests’ disposal; sit under a shady tree and enjoy refreshments. The room has an imported Queen sized bed and mattress, fluffy pillows, reading lights, free Wi-Fi 24/7, desk with chair and study lamp, comfortable armchair as well as plenty of storage and free use of the in-room air conditioning.
We provide towels and linens as well as other essentials. Guest may keep food in the refrigerator and kitchen cupboard. A bicycle is available to borrow. There is free access to the pool (seasonal), the gym (year round), and the soccer field, basketball and tennis courts, all within the compound. There is also a small convenience store within the gates. The residential compound is gated and maintains 24 hour walk-around security.
Our neighborhood has a fabulous range of multi-cultural restaurants to suit all budgets, both foreign and local supermarkets, vegetable and fruit stalls, a German Bakery, French Bakery, German Butcher, Pizzeria’s and street cafes. We live close to Solana Shopping Mall, Chaoyang Park for an afternoon stroll under the old trees or an easy walk to the local flower markets that sell souvenirs and Chinese trinkets to post home.
