I am a normal beijinger, live my normal life here in beijing for 40 years, I would like to know new things, meet new people, share fun staff with everybody, so come to my home to experience local life in beijing
Jie Shen was very responsive and gave excellent directions to their home. Very spacious house, close to the subway line and plenty of food in the fridge during the stay. Good wifi and neighborhood. I booked this reservation for some friends visiting from the US and have recommended this place to neighbors for future visitors. You can't go wrong with this listing, much better than staying in a hotel!
My colleagues and I really enjoyed staying here. The bedrooms are spacious and having our own bathrooms was great! Location is good and surrounded by restaurants which. Getting a taxi was very easy as the complex is next to a large street. I highly recommend this place!
We had a wonderful time at Jie's apartment. It was perfect for our whole family. Her husband helped show us around and stocked us up with breakfast food. The apartment was clean, spacious, well-taken care of and located in a good area of Beijing. Her communication was always promt and she was very helpful.
We spent à wonderful Time in this apartment. The apartment is perfect for a 6pers group. Unfortunately we haven't met jie but her husband and her sister in law jennie were so helpful. They welcomed us, brought us to the nearest MRT, help us to organise our trip to the great wall, found for us blind massages and provided us with breakfast and all we need to feel well as if we were at home. We are pleased to advise jie and her place for families or friends who wish to spend a good time in beijing at a good accomodation budget.
We really enjoyed our stay at Shen Jie's home. It is very comfortable, roomy, and easy to come and go from. The host took good care of us even when we had to call several times because we pushed the wrong button on the TV. If we ever travel to Beijing again we will be sure to contact Jie again.
We would definitely return to Jie's home if we ever travel to Beijing again. The home was well stocked, clean, comfortable and had plenty of space for 4 people or more!. We had no problem finding it. Her sister-in-law was very nice and took good care of us. When we had a problem with the TV, Jie's husband came ASAP to get it going for us. Even when it was our fault. It is in a nice, freshly built neighborhood near a huge mall and the subway but it is a 15 minute brisk walk. We also rode the train to the Great Wall that is very near her home. The taxis drivers had no problem getting us there and we easily caught them out front of the complex. We really enjoyed our stay. If I was to say something negative it would be that the bathrooms do not have doors on them. Maybe okay for husband and wife but the other room was shared by 2 friends. I made a curtain from a sheet and pant hangers. Worked great. Thank you.
Response from Jie:
Thank you for your kind advice. I'll make some change. Enjoy!
I first met Shen Jie in early June when I visited Beijing to make arrangements for my research visit in the fall. I had seen the apartment listed on AirBnB and communicated with her to arrange a visit before I booked the rental. Shen Jie was happy to meet with me and she was very friendly and helpful. Needless to say I was very impressed with the apartment....it is her home and it is clean and nice and also very large. She met me at the subway after giving me travel directions and showed me the key features of the apartment and also walked me around the area to show me where to shop etc....
I immediately booked the rental and then we arrived on October 1 for our stay. Although Shen Jie was not there (she was out of town) her sister-in-law Jennie was there to greet us. They provided some food and drinks and also water which is important in China. There were maps and helpful tourist suggestions left for us and both Shen Jie and Jennie were very responsive to our many requests (by text and email) for directions and other things we needed. I cannot say enough nice things about both Shen Jie and Jennie and the apartment......we had a wonderful time and felt very comfortable during our stay in Beijing. I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again if I am in Beijing and in fact, I have even referred some friends about this apartment rental. Thank you Shen Jie!
Response from Jie:
Thank you Eric, I would love to host you again!
Jie Shen's apartment is wonderfully located: five minute walk from three main subway lines, surrounded by a beautiful garden in a gated community. The apartment is lovely, spacious and conveinent. We were welcomed warmly, with plenty of delightful food surprises, all of which have contributed to our great time in Beijing! We felt fortunate to have stayed in your place, Jie. Thanks!
Jie and her husband are some of the most kind people I have ever met.
They were fantastic guests and I would love to see them again. It is always a pleasure to be around fantastic people. I highly recommend Jie to all!
Walk DC and Baltimore Penn Station
Jie and her husband were great guests. Fun, quiet and neat. I would recomend them highly to any other host.
Sincerely, Mike Alcorn
Jie was good about coordinating her arrival and departure times. She took good care of my apartment and my cat, Max.
