We had really nice time in Beijing and appartment was super! Location, the size of the appartment and of course very helpful host, Florence! She had good tips for us about neighbourhood and Beijing in general. Also, she took us straight away to leave our info for local police (that's good to do in China when your not staying in hotel). Owners even invited for a drink, but unfortunately we had too busy schedule, but it only means that there must be a second time visit here later! We definitely recommend!
It was wonderful staying at florence's flat, Florence and Ray are both kind and friendly. it is located in one of the most trendy part of Beijing, amazing view on the 14th floor. It is comfortable and fully equipped with lots of everything you need in the house. There is a real handy western supermarket and little restaurants in the basement of the shopping mall next to the building, and plenty bars and restaurants nearby too! If i was to add anything to note, is that the internet is a bit temperamental. However, this is something we could totally live without for a few days while enjoying a holiday in Beijing :)
What can I say about Florence and her place that hasn't already been said?! The location is fantastic, walking distance to all the best night life in Beijing. The apartment itself is a real home from home, has everything your could wish for and more. The communication was excellent, answered all my questions and provided helpful advice. Shame we didn't have the time to sit down and have cup of tea! Florence and Ray are a true credit to airbnb! Hope to see you next time I'm in Beijing.
This property is very well located within Beijing, and although not exactly a stone's throw from the Forbidden City but a 10-30 minute taxi ride from almost anywhere you might wish to go. The actual locality is rich in shops, markets, bars and restaurants, both Chinese and western. The flat is spacious and graciously furnished, and Florence herself could not have been more helpful. Like the city itself, this is definitely a place to visit again, and highly recommended.
This is a fabulous apartment in a great location. Within a couple of blocks you have a wide variety of Chinese food, a European grocery and a Texas BBQ restaurant. It's within walking distance to the Silk Market and many other venues of interest. The apartment has everything you need and the hosts are great. Spacious, comfortable and way better than a hotel if you want to make your own food. Well located and safe. Tops all round. Within reach of all the tourist areas and plenty of help from Florence. Reasonable price too.
It was my first experience with airbnb and, if it is always like that, I will always travel in this way. Amazing apartment with everything, clean, well located and what to say about Florence... really a nice person, friendly, helpful with everything and much more.
I have to say that might be the best place I've ever stayed.
The apartment is in a great location and was clean. Would definitely recommend staying here!
After living in Beijing for 8 years we were looking for a home away from home for our remaining and busy last 2 weeks - and we found it!
Florence and Rays Apartment is in a great location, very nice decorated, spacious and offers beautiful views. It offers all ammenities, is clean and very comfortable. We only met Florence and she is a great host!
We hope to be able to return soon for a vacation and have recommended it to our friends. Thanks Florence and Ray for your hospitality!
This is a really nice apartment, perfectly furnished and in a very good location. Florence and Ray are very nice hosts and always helpful. I enjoyed my stay there and will certainly come back.
I stayed at Florence and Ray's place in Beijing for 3 weeks in October while taking a Mandarin program nearby. The apartment was large, comfortable and very conveniently located. The neighborhood offers the best of two worlds. Walk a few blocks in one direction and you'll find the ex-pat world of Sanlitun and all its bars, restaurants, and shops. Walk a few blocks the other way, and you're in an authentic Beijing neighborhood, surrounded by Beijing families who call this place home. Everything you could possibly need is right at hand (supermarket, dry cleaner, cheap eats) and best of all, Florence and Ray are fantastic people who are as welcoming, friendly and helpful as one could hope for.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
