The Space

This lovely little apartment is located in the most beautiful place, Shichahai near the Old Drum Tower Street, hidden in a quiet residential alley.

[ Apartment details ]
The apartment is on the 4th floor, the elevator and corridor has access control hence it is really safe, secure with lots of privacy. The apartment has an area of 67 square meters. Although it is small, it is a complete and cosy nest for travelers to have a good rest after a long day of traveling. The bedroom has a double bed, hence it is able to accomodate 1-2 person. The living room has a sofa and a dining table. As for the kitchen, all electrical appliances and equipments are complete and cookwares available. The bathroom and toilet is separated by a glass panel. There is a phone and television and wireless network available in the apartment.

If you require anything, you can easily communicate with me via walkie-talkie. Welcome to stay in this apartment for a year if you enjoy living in Beijing! I have a US guest and British couple, who worked in Beijing for a period of time, they really enjoyed staying here and experiencing the Beijing atmosphere.

[ Transportation ]
This district's transportation is very convenient, it is close to the Line 2 & Line 8 subway and accessible to various buses. It is really convenient to travel to any destinations.

[ Locations ]
There are a variety of bars and restaurants nearby, serving local delicacy. The apartment is surrounded by Shicha river, South Luogu Alley, Drum Tower, Beihai, Jingshan, Deshengmen and other attractions. There are many alleys in Beijing and you can always experience Beijing in the authentic style. The apartment is not too far away from the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and Lama Temple. You can travel by the railway to Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Wangfujing, Xidan and other popular places in Beijing.

[ Message from the host ]
I enjoy designing this apartment as though it is one of my art pieces, many of my guests contributed their ideas to how it could be designed. I hope you will treat this apartment just like your own and take good care of the cleanliness and amenities.

Guest Access

All things are ready for guests. Including food and water.

Interaction with Guests

I am very proud that finally we will become good friends with all the guests.

The Neighborhood

The absolute center of the city, but the neighborhood is very quiet;
From here to anywhere is very convenient;
It has become a popular area of fashion.
Shichahai, Houhai, Nanluoguxiang, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Tiananmen Square, Wudaoying, Drum Tower, Jingshan Park ...... whether you go in any direction, you can find traces of history and culture.

Getting Around

Traffic is very convenient,there are a lot of public transportation lines, including the subway and bus.
There are two subway lines, Line 2 and Line 8; There are many public bus lines; however, you'd better riding a bike, you will find a completely different Beijing in the HuTong.

Other Things to Note

Foreigners living in Beijing, the need for registration at the police station, I can give you help.
