We really enjoyed our stay at Shen Jie's home. It is very comfortable, roomy, and easy to come and go from. The host took good care of us even when we had to call several times because we pushed the wrong button on the TV. If we ever travel to Beijing again we will be sure to contact Jie again.
Very nice apartment. Quiet en green surroundings, near the subway (10-15 min. walk). We haven't met Jie, but her husband and her sister in law were very helpfull.
It was our first experience with airbnb, and a very good one! When we will return to Beijing we will certainly stay again with Jie.
