- Wangfujing Pedestrian Shopping Street (王府井大街 - the most popular and biggest shopping street in Beijing; packed with restaurants and street food stalls)
- The Temple of Heaven (Religious complex from 1406 for annual ceremonies of prayer to "Heaven" for good harvest)
So far so good not much comment for we only stay one night here before we depart to airport.
I do not like to leave negative comments, but this helps others to make decisions. I like to be honest.
This listing is ok, but the flat is not "Superior" at all. It could be, but is not.
It is conveniently located close to a subway station, restaurants, 7 eleven, and a main avenue, but the building maintenance is not good. Corridors, hallways, and windowpanes are all dirty.
It Is safe, the building and the area, this must be said.
The flat itself is ok... with AC, washing machine, fridge, and a microwave, but is dirty. Is very dirty.
I found four cockroaches in the bathroom area (which is next to the kitchen and do not have a door to make it more private), and a few more in the bedroom, including one on the bed, during my stay of 5 days.
I found it the last night, I guess I shared bed with it for the whole stay.
Check in was smooth and the host was very friendly and courteous, no problems there. He speaks fluent english and you can call him to arrange check out time.
