This apartment consists of three rooms, entrance, kitchen and toilet of a space of 77 square metres. The rooms are a master bed room, bed study and living room. It is newly furnished to cater to the basic needs of a temporary and economic stay.
It is located in a quiet residential area on the campus of Beijing Foreign Studies University, a gated-community with excellent security, on the north west third ring road. Close to the university and high tech areas of Beijing, it is a stop of 19 bus routes of high frequency with plentiful taxi service and the metro (Line 4) just two stop away. It is 33 km from the airport, about 50 minutes by car. The airport shuttle bus from the airport also stops near the campus, too.
You may have difficulty in moving in town in CBD areas. Try coming in town from a bit outside. It is much easier to get about either in the suburb or into downtown of Beijing especially in busy hours.

It is an ideal choice to beat down your expenses to save and spend on your experience and novelty in Beijing.
There are restaurants of various classes and tastes and shops of daily goods nearby on the campus. Care to see the morning vegetable market or experience Chinese campus canteen or walk along the river to Summer Palace, ask me.
Both short- or long-term stay can be arranged.
Nous avons été très satisfaits de l’accueil chaleureux que monsieur Gang Zhao nous a réservé.
L'appartement est propre, bien équipé (wifi, machine à laver le linge, frigidaire...). Les lits sont confortables.
Il y a des petits magasins dans la résidence.
Nous ne pouvons que recommander cet appartement, sachant que le métro le plus proche est à une demi-heure à pied et qu'il est très facile de prendre un taxi.
C'est un mode d'hébergement authentique, au centre de la population locale.
OVERALL:The apartment is great and offers a comfortable and authentic experience of life in Beijing. Gang was a fantastic, charming and responsive host. The neighbors on the street were great too and would smile and yell out hello every time we walked by. APARTMENT: The apartment is clean and nice. It was very well furnished and had everything you would need for the stay including soap, shampoo, laundry soap, extra blankets, etc. The air conditioning was great. It can be set for each room in the apartment. The washer is new and very useful for longer stays. NEIGHBORHOOD: It is located within the walls of Beijing Foreign Studies University so it is close to restaurants, shops, etc. You can reach it via a side gate (~150 m) or via the main gate (~300 m) when the side gate closes at 9 PM. There are two small stores on the campus (~200 m) and one has a small noodle/soup shop next to it where we would buy noodles each morning. The apartment is very quiet. LOCATION: The apartment is between two metro lines (about 1.5 km) so it takes 15-20 minutes to walk to the metro on either side. Going to Changchunqiao station is the fastest and you walk through a beautiful park along the river. Otherwise, it always takes less than a minute to grab a cab from just outside the side gate (a 150 m walk from the apartment). It is a 5 minute ride to the metro and costs CNY 13 (EUR 1.80/ USD 2). We did this most of the time and it worked out great. It's worth noting that it can be hard to get a cab back from the Changchunqiao station if the mall there has already closed. We had a great experience with Gang and will certainly try to come back and stay again when we visit Beijing.
Gang is a conscientious and accommodating host. The apartment is terrific and the neighbourhood is full of interest. This is where to go for an authentic experience of life in Beijing.
My mother and I stayed at Gang's place for four nights. We had a comfortable stay. It was very clean, included all that we needed for cooking and sleeping, and was in a safe area of town. It took us 15 minutes to walk to the nearest metro station, but we enjoyed the exercise. Gang was very helpful with directions and providing advice. I would recommend it.
We stayed in the apartment for a week in October / November.
We are a family of 4 and we had a lot of space in this apartment.
It was just great!
The apartment is placed in a traditional house built in the 1980ies, located in a university campus. The apartment has recently been redecorated; it is very comfortable and completely furnished.
There are a lot of restaurants within 5 minutes of walking from the apartment.
Bus stops are right outside campus area and the subway is just 5 min by local bus from the campus area. Most convenient airport transportation is the airport shuttle bus which stops at Friendship hotel, only 5 min by local bus from the campus area.
I will recommend this place anytime and would book this apartment for our next visit to Beijing.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
