This apartment was very nice! The location was great! We had a blast here. Everyone that worked with Vera were nice and easy to get in contact with!
I rented Vera's Beijing apartment for several weeks in may 2014. The Apartment itself was good quality in fairly new building located about a 5 - 10 minute walk from either the Dongzhimin station or Sanlitun area. Vera and the management staff were very professional and had no problems with English (or my limited Chinese). The room itself was clean, had a nice bathroom with walk in shower, granite and hardwood floors and a nice kitchenette. Although the bed was firm I had no problems sleeping, the room was relatively quiet and the Air Conditioner worked well, even on a few days when it was over 35C outside. The Kitchen is stocked with most utensils needed for two people. I cooked about 30% of the time and everything worked as expected. There is a rice cooker and water boiler, two element stove top, small refrigerator and a microwave. Everything was modern and worked well. Good for up to two people. Bathroom was clean and everything worked although it was a bit small - but totally usable. Hot water was nearly instant and never had pressure issues (modern building. The internet access is very good, plenty fast to Chinese companies like Baidu, renren and youku. I had no problem accessing my corp environment via VPN and even streamed video without problems from Chinese streaming sites. A CCTV receiver and flat screen TV worked well although all except two channels had only Chinese content. Location. The location is quite nice but was not as close to the airport express as expected - although it was not too far. There are two grocery stores, Sanlitun, workers stadium, several embassies and Dongzhimen station(lines 2, 13 and airport express) are within easy walk. CBD is a short taxi ride away. Finding the location the first time is a bit of an adventure although the directions provided were accurate. The north entrance looks a bit sketchy since it's down a small street - no worries: it's safe being next to a police station. TIPS: Taxis: Nearby is a holiday inn express and sometimes it was easier to pick up a taxi there. Otherwise some of the taxi's around Sanlitun will try to charge high flat fees. On Dongzhimen outer street I found it easier to pickup a cab than from the south exit. Food: Jenny Lou's is next to Beijing Kindergarten #1 and is pretty decent for expat food. Prices are not horrible although for best produce go to a Chinese marketplace. There are cheaper alternatives near Dongzhimen station mall or near the corner of Workers Stadium road E and N. Registration: Foreigners need to register with the local police department within 24 hours of arrival. The management team handled this for me easily and they returned with my passport and addendum paperwork within a few hours. Summary: I will stay at this apartment again. It was quiet, had good working and sleeping environment and the proximity to transit and expat locations were a plus for...
Had a great time, my contact during the trip was Lisa. Very helpful and always quick to respond via email/ phone!
As the description states, Sanlitun Village is very close by foot so eating out is easy to do. It's also worth checking out Great Leap Brewery (gastro? pub) for burgers & beer which is just around the corner (walk to the holiday inn from the South exit, turn right)!
Will be sure to stay here again next time in Beijing...
It is very cozy and clean apartment, very good host! I really would recommend this for anyone who visits Beijing.

Tracy was helping me out instead of Vera. Tracy was super nice and thoughtful. Some of the other staff were very nice in suggesting places to visit and things to eat. The apartment was very clean with a lot of extra amenities. I would definitely stay here again.
The environment was quiet good and the staffs were polite. It was such a good place for us to stay in Beijing .
Great place to stay in Beijing!!! Not far from the subway, not at all… just a small walk to it.
Tracy and all the staff were super attentive and helpful.
We booked our great wall trip with their assistance and it was a great experience over all. The apartment is cozy and doesnt lack anything to most overpriced hotels.
Good room as in description. Efficient ans friendly service. I'd stay here again
Perfect for our one night stay in Beijing. Close to the airport express, and they came to meet us on the street to find the place. Walking distance to Sanlitun etc. Thanks!
