Other Things to Note
I have 6 apartments in one building, they are exactly the same with layout, size and facilities, slightly difference with furniture.
I don't like to regulate my guest any rules, just please be nice to the furniture and try to remember to turn the lights and A/C off whenever you leave the apartment. The check in time should be after 1pm and check out time before 12am, but it can be flexible based on the reservation and availability. Pls inform me immediately if there is any problem of the amenities and I will arrange the worker to take care at earliest time.
The best thing going for this studio flat - as advertised and commented by many - is the location. It is right near two subway stops (10 min walk), easy access to the old historic part (inside 2nd ring), as well as near the trendy east sanlitun area (places to go out, western or fancy food), plus right near the airport expressway train (15 min walk).
The building and studio itself are nothing to write home about. They are reasonable enough, but the building a bit run down and the flat somewhat close to the picture, although a bit worn. Think of it as a 3 star Chinese hotel and your expectations will be in line.
Price is also good value.
Robert is a good guy - quiet and not super outgoing, but responsive. We had a mix-up on the driver picking us up from the airport (driver did not show), so Robert picked up our cab fare. Luckily I speak Mandarin, as arriving 11:30 at night with 3 kids may be daunting for many expats. We also had a bad shower head, which he replaced in 1 day; and we needed more folding chairs, which he got to right away.
The only issue was the flat was not clean when we first arrived. The maids did a minimal job on the exposed areas, but the closets and drawers were very dirty. Again, Robert offered to re-send the maids with us overseeing them, but my wife and I just preferred to roll up our sleeves and do it ourselves, as we have seen enough Chinese maids to know this isn't Japan or Spain levels of cleanliness.
We also stayed a month (kids went to a camp, I did a work project), and the fact everyone was happy and no one got sick, well I leave very happy. We also had 2/4 weeks with blue sky in Beijing, so that also colored my experience in a positive way.
the studio is worn out...beds are worn out, kitchen utensils not complete,...not worth for the money.
Felt insure in the room.
Nice place, Robert was quick to resolve any issues we had. Close to train station, a little hard to find originally but he came and met us and took us to the building. Thanks for the stay
Robert was a very helpful host. He also offered to drive us to see the Great Wall and gave us very reasonable rates (a lot cheaper than any tour company we spoke with) and took the time to drive us all the way out to the less crowded section farther from Beijing (2.5 hrs). The apartment we stayed at was a bit difficult to find--for future renters of that unit: be advised that you have to go through the lobby to the outside/back of the building and make an immediate left where you will see a security desk. The neighborhood is fine and you'll be near some local shops. There is a bank and ATM across the street to exchange money and a casual restaurant at the lobby of the apartment complex.
