This is a two bedrooms apartment in a 60's Russian planned block-style building. The apartment has a common/dining/reading room area, bathroom with standing shower and Western toilet (see pic), and a smallish kitchen (see pic).
The guest bedroom listed here is where you'll stay. It's a spacious 15sqm space (161sq. ft) with high ceilings. It has a very comfy pull-out sofa bed, and you can fold it up when you want to chill out and watch a movie in your room (TV & DVD player available, along with a growing list of movie discs). There's also a nice and big computer desk if you need to catch up on some work or emails.
The apartment is located on the Third Ring Road in Chaoyang District, it's fairly close to Sanlitun iVillage, bar street and Yaxiu clothing market, as well as WFC, Lufthansa Centre and many foreign embassies. It's only 10 minutes walking distance to the Line 10 and 6 metro station, about 40 minutes to Capital Airport both via taxi (depending on traffic) or Airport Express Line.
Tourist attractions such as Tian'anmen and Drum and Bell tower can be reached via the extensive Beijing subway system, or taxi for a small fee. The newly opened Line 6 metro can take you to Dongcheng district within 15 minutes, popular sightseeing and shopping area such as Nanluoguxiang can be reached in 5 stops. The infamous CCTV Tower Building (also dubbed as 'the Pants' by locals) is only one block away.
The area around the apartment is relatively quiet compared to other busy/touristy areas. It's a compound for local retirees from state owned factories and People's Daily Newspaper. Personally I find it very nice to come back to after a long day of working and studying, or in your case, exploring the city.
There are many little local food joints nearby, and I'd be happy to give you recommendations. There's also a nice little park within walking distance where you'll find local elderlies doing various physical exercises in the morning and sauntering about in the evening after dinner.
Lastly, there's a cat in the house, she just won't leave.
