Fiona was quick to reply and was extremely helpful prior to our trip (doing more than she had to with our trip preparations!). The neighbourhood is approachable and international with plenty of great places to eat and drink. From this base, it's easy to sight-see Beijing, and you can walk to the airport express. The apartment was comfortable and has everything you need. It's not quite as clean and shiny as it looks in the pictures but it's comfortable. Opening the windows seemed to get rid of the cigarette smell. As other reviews have pointed out - you won't get the personalised service that you may be used to from air bnb - it is a serviced apartment company, so you may not meet your host, but the staff at the company are friendly and helpful. We liked being left alone. You go to the company's office, which is a short walk from the apartment, to check-in and get your access card.
1. Location, located in SanLiTun close to bars, restaurants and shopping.
2. Safe, quiet building. Main door requires card key to enter, very safe.
3. Clean, cozy aparment, with toiletries available for guests.
4. Host was available late at night over the phone to help with the card reader which I couldn't figure out (2am!)
1. Card reader is difficult to figure out! Ask host to show you how to open the door with the key!!!
Bait and switch. Basically I didn't get the place advertised. When I got there I was the standard 1br at Season's Park. If you've been to Season's Park before you'll know they all look alike and look nothing like these pictures. When I asked them why it wasn't as advertised they told me (probably not true) that someone extended their stay at the advertised place and they were giving me a free "upgrade" to the 1br. It's all BS. Unfortunately there was no other options for me at that hour. Great location near Sanlitun but just over promised and under delivered. Typical.
Very good location, walk 5mins to SanLiTun. Cozy lovely apartment. And very comfortable. Love it!
hello, i am maximilian, i work in fashion in milan, and I am a very demanding person! Fiona's flat is perfect located in a posh area called Dongzhimen/Sanlintun. The building is super modern and have all residence services underneath: quick laundry, convenince shops, well furnished supermarket and etc. Strategically positioned in a very chic area of Beijing full of cool noodles and local restaurants, pizza, tacos and etc. on the top of that just 5 minutes walking from worker's stadium (24hrs resturants and bars / something absolutely rare and unusual for beijing). also excellent for people who wants to enjoy beijing nightlife! just 15 min walking from the best clubbing area of beijing (sanlintun). (cocobabana is the collest club of beijing). the apartment also includes all safety comodities: safety box, code door and entrance card! no keys are needed! its super modern and safe! Fiona's residence flat is absolutely gorgeous for both people that is looking for a safe holiday or in business trip! Fiona and her super sweet team are absolutely helpful on anything you might need for a SUBLIME stay in beijing! limousine airport pick up on request! I would definately return back there! enjoy your stay!
the staff is friendly and helpful. but the cleaning can be better
- Location is good.
- If you lower your expectations the apartment is fine.
- Was always able to get in touch with Rich&Young company when needed and they helped as much as possible with the big problems.
- Fiona not there to meet as others have said. She was "at the hospital”. Wouldn’t have been an issue as other staff where available but the move in wasn’t particularly smooth. I would have appreciated Fiona there to help deal with the problems.
- 1st Apartment not as advertised. Was dirty, toilet flusher broken, no cable tv etc.
- 2nd apartment TV didn’t work and not too clean.
- 3rd apartment was OK and I stayed in this one.
- Iron didn’t work. When told Fiona about problem nothing happened to fix it so didn’t have ironed clothes for a month.
- Advertised Cable TV: It is Chinese cable tv so don’t expect CNN, HBO, etc. More Chinese channels.
- Advertised GYM: There is a gym but it is 70RMB (12USD) per visit. It is not included in price. Half the machines are broken. It is a 5-10 min walk to the gym.
- Cold in winter. Heating wasn’t turned on. Was cold.
- Fridge door didn’t close properly so I always felt it never really got cold enough inside and things went off early.
If you want a place for a short period, like a month, to use then it is OK. It is good location and I was happy there. If your willing to pay a premium and get a basic, modern, clean apartment then I recommend it. However, don’t expect the photos and don’t expect the AirBNB treatment you're used to. This is a money generating business and you will feel it in what is provided in the apartment and the service you receive.
the flat is nice, calm, comfortable, 10min with the bus to sunlitun ... i would book it again:)
Great place, well located, very clean
Clean room, very accommodating and responsive host, very convenient location. Thanks for a great stay!
