I start 5 rooms at a courtyard. Locating at traditional courtyard,my room is a quiet " island " in the crowded city.Tatami sttyle with queen size bed. You can enjoy privacy in your room or relex in the sunny yard. You can discover the real Hutongs by supplied bicycle. Simple breakfast cafe and jucie are free. If you need someone to guide you around, my young and passionate friedns(college students) will give you proffessional guide service at really reasonable price. If you want a deeper understanding of Chinese culture(Langague Cooking Painting,ect),custom-made lessons will be a good choice. All I want is to make your Beijing trip wonderful and impressive.
Anything in the room
I also live in the yard. I would like to communicate with you over a cup of coffee or tea. It must be interesting to discuss different experience, culture,hobby,etc with friends.
5 walking distance to subway. 40 minutes from airport by subway.
Staying with Sue was the best decision I could've made! She is the most caring host you'll have! Besides, living in a hutong gives you the whole real Chinese experience! She was not only helping us to get used to the beijing lifestyle but every single time we needed her, she helped us. Amazing experience!!!!! I'm gonna miss her so much! :(
Auberge espagnole chinoise dynamique ! / Great chinese guest house to meet people !
LES PLUS / PLUS :
- l’emplacement (en plein hutong, à 20 minutes à pied de la place Tian-Anmen, à proximité de la station de métro Hepingmen) / great location in hutong (20mn walking to Tian-Anmen Square, near Hepingmen metro station),
- la chambre agréable équipée de climatisation / comfortable and lovely room with AC,
- la qualité du matelas / very comfortable bed,
- la sollicitude des hôtes (déclaration de séjour à la police, traductions du chinois à l'anglais, etc.) / helpful hosts.
LES MOINS / LESS :
- la propreté relative (à la chinoise) de la cuisine et de la salle de bain / kitchen and bathroom not very clean,
- la cour pour les fumeurs dont les odeurs envahissent toutes les chambres / the courtyard is a smoking area and you can't avoid the smell of the cigarets even in your room,
- pas de ménage / no housekeeping.
We had a great time in Beijing with Sue! The room is located in the Hutons, but very near to Hepingman station. Sue made breakfast for us on the first morning and lend us her bikes to travel around Beijing. Perfect! The room was very neat, very comfortable. If you want an authentic stay in Beijing, you should stay with Sue!
I love this place, Sue and Sue's mother is very nice hosts. I will introduce this place to my friends!
Sue is very kindly host. the room is very clean and cozy, my girlfriend and I love this place!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay of just over a week at Sue's lovely new hutong complex. The room was well furnished, large and the bed fit me fine (I'm 188 cm tall). The courtyard was beautiful with some centuries-old tiles. We were lucky enough to meet her parents whilst we were there and shared many meals together. There was a market/restaurant area a few minutes away. Sue herself was extremely helpful and fun to chat to. The location was convenient and living in one of Beijing's last "real" hutong areas was a real privilege. Navigation through the hutongs is relatively straightforward once you get used to it, but you should cache her exact location on your phone's mapping software before you go. (website hidden) Maps can find her address, also try MapFactor Navigator for Android if you prefer free offline navigating. In any case, Sue picked us up from the nearby metro station. I can see Sue's place rapidly becoming one of the most popular airbnb stays in Beijing, so book early to avoid missing out.
I would definitely book her place again. On the first night, I could taste Chinese home food cooked by her father and it was better than any other restaurants that I've tried in Beijing.
I had absolutely no plan for Beijing when I got there and Sue sat down with me for hours helping me planning the trip. She even gave me a guided tour when she was available. Thank you, Sue :)

As a girl,I like movie, cooking, traveling and making friends.
As a host,I have been an airbnb host for almost one year. It is really wonderful to have different guests come and stay with me, sharing our experience,stories,culture. It makes my life more colorful and meaningful. So I choose to start another 5 rooms for more guests and hope to make these friends' Beijing trip more impressive.
