APARTMENT: Queen sized bedroom in a nice apartment within a new apartment complex. The bathroom (yours for private use) is spotlessly clean. It's entrance is about a meter (3ish feet) from the bedroom door, and it has a fully enclosed shower along with a washing machine. Large living room, kitchen coatroom, sunroom. BIg window behind the guest bed, with thick curtains to block out all light if needed.
LOCATION: I live east side of the city near Salitun and Gongti (Workers' Stadium) areas, one of Beijing's best areas for restaurants, shopping, and bars. My place is right next to the second ring road, which means quick access to the ancient city center. The nearest metro station, Dongsishitiao Station (on Line 2) is only a few blocks away. The top destinations listed in the guidebooks in the city center are the Forbidden City, the Lama Temple, and Houhai, but I'm also happy to point out some great places in Beijing that might not be listed in the guidebooks.
