It's a cozy room in a 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms apartment near Olympic Stadium. There is a king-size bed and a TV set in this room. I added a table and a hanger in this room. So it is more convienent than before.
All utilities are included: High speed internet, free parking, TV, air conditioning, WIFI, washing machine, shampoo, condition, soap, tooth paste. You are also welcome to utilize the kitchen to make your food. Also, you can join me for a meal or two and try my Chinese South-North style cooking.
The place is in Anxiang North Road, in Anxiangli Community. It is very near to the Olympic Stadium (Bird Nest, Water Cube). It's about 5 minutes walking distance or you can take Bus 86 or 928 for one stop to reach the gate of the park. My home is very convenient to go to Beijing Language and Culture University, Peking University, Tsinghua University, subway, etc. by Bus 86(The stop is just downstairs). There is shuttle bus from airport to my home (Aoyuncun Line), the stop is just downstairs of my home . And the living is convenient too. There are several restaurants in this building(Beijing roast duck) and in my community. And There are two small markets downstairs of the apartment. You can buy food, meat, fruits, vegetable, etc. There is also a bank ATM and a hospital on the street.
I am an associate professor in a university in Beijing. I went to Harvard, MIT in Cambridge last year and at that time I knew airbnb. I like to know new friends from airbnb. We can know the real lives each other. If you live my home, you can know the real life of beijing's general people.

Welcome to Beijing :)
We stayed Taohong's big bed near Olympic Stadium for 5days. She was really friendly and nice like my mother or relatives (; The location of Taohong' really convenient to get to Sanlitun or center of Beijing. We could see the olympic stadium and water cube everyday, and her house is also very convenient to get to wudaokou where the BLCU and lots of restaurants are located. The bed was really cozy and Taohong and her family were very nice as well. ;) Want to stat there again when i get to Beijing again
my stay was good. as I came back late and went out in early morning so I didn't really get to see the host much but she's very quick to respond on my text messages. thanks!
I was lucky enough to stay with Taohong and her family during my week long stay in Beijing and can recommend it to you!
The apartment is located 1 block from the Birds Nest and Water Cube so easy walking to both major attractions. A short bus ride or brisk walk will take you to the Subway that runs directly into the heart of Beijing. Taxis are accessible at the bus stop right in front of the apartment.
Inside you will find the warm company of Taohong and her family, such a pleasure to meet them! On my night of arrival I was greeted with smiles and a delicious meal of delicious Duck and also Jiaozi (dumplings), what a treat! The apartment is spacious and clean.The room where I stayed had a giant comfortable bed that I looked forward to at the end of a day spent exploring.
I will stay here again next year and can recommend it to you as well. Thank you again Taohong!
Taohong was a good host. She was thoughtful and helped us with translation and directions. We enjoyed our stay at her place.
Taohong was a fantastic host. I came to Beijing for a conference, and the place was perfectly located so that I could walk if I wanted. The bed was very comfortable, and anything that I requested (towel, iron, etc.) was readily provided for me. Taohong and her family are very nice people, and I would gladly come back and stay with them. I'm very glad to have met them.
I had a lovely stay at Taohong. She was very kind and has a very sweet husband and son. Her cooking is delicious and she has been very helpful. Thanks to her I was able to make sense of the public transport system and I learned more about China in general. The room has a huge bed and a desk. The airconditiong works perfectly, even during the hot Beijing summer. Taohong's place is close to the big universities of Beijing. Taking a bus to Tshingua takes about 15 minutes. To reach PKU you'll need to transfer at Wudaokou and it will be 25 minutes in total.
Taohong and her family were a lovely family to spend my time with in Beijing! I studied at BLCU (near wudaokou subway), it was a cheap, quick and convenient bus ride there.
They were always willing to help me and Taohong made me some yummy Chinese food to welcome me to their home.
The room looks like the picture, the bed is softer than most Chinese beds, the bathroom is yours to use however, they do have their laundry in there as well.
If your purpose in Beijing is to tour than I would maybe recommend a different place seeing as it is not located right by a metro. But, if you are studying in Wudaokou, have business at the Olympic Park or just want to meet some great people stay with Taohong!
I came here to Beijing for study Mandarin Chinese with my wife for 3 months.
I guarantee as everyone said, Taohong is a great host. I stayed with Taohong and her family for 7 nights and decided to stay with her family for the next 85 nights. The room is convenient and clean, and I think it's better than any other room in Beijing.
She and her lovely husband are always happy to help and answer every questions with a smile.
They is willing to teach and answer questions about our Mandarin Chinese all the time.
I'm courteous and feel for her family as well, me and my wife bother them too much but they always help us as well.
We always use their refrigerater and kitchen to cook our food because my wife is allergic to monosodium glutamate (MSG), seasoning powder and gourmet powder. They also organized their refrigerater and kitchen to accommodate us. Thank you very much.
I loved my staying in Taohong's apartment. She was a wonderful host and provided me everything that I needed. The room was fairly big enough and the bed was comfortable. Also, she invited me for a dinner and her dishes were delicious as well. I definitely recommend you to stay here.
