Very helpful and thoughtful owner; beautifully furnished and clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thought we'd select a slightly different holiday destination this year and go to China. The natural choice for our maiden China voyage was Beijing. The apartment is in a gated residential district of SouthEast Beijing and well located for hailing licenced taxis or taking the bus. The nearest subway (metro, tube) is about 20 minutes walk away. We found the subway to be very good value (around £0.50 for a single journey) and reliable (in terms of time) for getting around Beijing. The subway facilities are also clean modern and air conditioned. The residential district was well located for trying out local cuisine with a number of restaurants within a 10 minute walk. There were also several grocery shops conveniently close by. Unfortunately staples for the British diet like butter, jam and black tea proved impossible to find. Notably, I always felt safe in the area, even when exploring the local eateries late in the evening.

For non far Easterners China can be a daunting place to visit as both the written and spoken language are so unique and few Chinese people speak Engligh so trying to negotiate activities like eating out, travel, shopping and touring can be extremely tricky without a local host.

This is why the property owner (and her wonderful brother) were so crucial to making our stay enjoyable. Although not present in the city she was very accessible and would reasons promptly to email enquiries provided links to apps and tourism websites.

She thought of everything. She provided the property address and nearest bus stop in Chinese for taxi drivers and locals. Her brother (who resided in an apartment the floor above) and was happy to be called upon at anytime to resolve issues like Getting the wifi working, to helping us organise a taxi back to the airport. She also cautioned us about common scams such as illegal taxi firms and and tour guide firm pairing us genuine services and targeting foreigners - commonplace in the region. Needless to say, we were very grateful to have such kind, helpful, accessible property owners.

Our arrival time was very late so her brother kindly provided breakfast for our first morning.

There were also English maps, English to Chinese phrase books and dictionaries and tour guides.

Our stay (6 days) seemed very short for the large city. If I were to return to Beijing I would definitely consider staying at this apartment again.

Amazing place to stay while visiting Beijing

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Susan's apartment. It was so much more than we expected it to be. The apartment had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped, which was very nice. The apartment is also very suited for families with children.

Susan's brother was really kind, he prepared breakfast for us for the next morning and explained everything really well, although he couldn't speak English. He also reserved a van for our departure, which was really kind of him.

Susan also had metro passes in the apartment, so that was really useful! The were also maps of Beijing and dictionaries that we could use.

The apartment was very well located, the bus stop was a few minutes away and the subway station was also closeby. Supermarkets and other stores were also a few minutes away.

We had an amazing time at the apartment with the four of us. I would recommend to everyone to stay at this place. If we would come back to Beijing, we would definately choose to stay here again!

Thank you Susan and Yuan
