You cannot get a better location than HERE in Beijing.It is conveniently located between two metro stations.
You could walk to Dongzhimen station in 5 minutes or less. This station is served by Line 2 and Line 13. It is also the terminal of the airport train. The embassy district and trendy Sanlitun are within easy walking.
You could do simple cooking in the apartment. However, most visitors would be unlikely to do that because of the wide variety of restaurants nearby: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian and Western. Needless to say, you would also be well served by McDonalds, KFC, Pizza huts and other fast food chains.
All the modern facilities that most travelers take for granted are within easy access. You have a choice of many banks to transact your business. Shops and supermarkets that cater to foreign/domestic needs are within walking distances.
Located in the embassy district, security is this area would be better than most parts of Beijing.
Each unit has its own kitchenette, refrigerator, washing machine, dryer! (unusual in China), microwave oven, sheets and linen, private bath room with 24-hour hot water, broadband internet access, TV, 24-hr security, air-conditioning in summer and central heating in winter.
Your landlord provides a touring service. He is a Beijinger who knows the city 'inside out'. He owns a car (a 5-seater) and can show you around Beijing for RMB600. A trip to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs costs RMB700. For more details pls visit www.realbeijingtours.com
This is a personalized service without the irritating 'shopping stops'. With a deep knowledge of Chinese culture and fluent English, your host will give you an unforgettable impression of Beijing.
In short, you could hit the ground running in Beijing if you chose to stay here.

The North China/Beijing region
Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China, the seat of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, and the Central People's Government of China.
It is the political, economic, cultural, and communication centre of the country, as well as that for international relations.
Beijing has historically been one of China's ancient capitals. Beijing has a history of over 3,000 years, which began with the overthrow of the Shang Dynasty (around the 16th-11th century B.C.) by King Wu of the Zhou Dynasty. Called Jing in ancient times, Beijing was once the capital of the State of Yan during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.).
Later, during the Liao Dynasty, Beijing was the alternate capital, called Yanjing. During the Jin Dynasty, Beijing, then called Zhongdu, was formally made China's capital. Beijing was renamed Dadu during the Yuan Dynasty and later became Jingshi during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is now known as Beijing, meaning "north capital."
Beijing, China's capital since the Jin dynasty, has already enjoyed a history of over 800 years. Through their wisdom and hard work, the laboring people of previous and ensuing dynasties have left many marvels, cultural relics and objects, and a brilliant cultural legacy.
Tian'anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, is the centre of Beijing. In its midst towers the Monument to the People's Heroes and in the south stands the Memorial Hall of Mao Zedong. Flanking the west of the square is the Great Hall of the People and in the east are the Museum of Chinese History and the Museum of the Chinese Revolution.
Tian'anmen Square is now the essential destination for every visitor, Chinese or foreign, to Beijing. In addition, Beihai, Jingshan, and Xiangshan Parks, as well as the Badachu scenic area are all renowned tourist attractions in Beijing, praised by visitors from all over the
Chaoyang District is located in the eastern part of Central Beijing. It occupies an area of 470.8 sq.km, with a regular population of 2.82 million. This district is full of vitality and creativity; it has prosperous economy and harmonious social atmosphere.
Chaoyang is praised as the “first district in Chinese diplomacy,” and it has been an important gate for China in dealing with foreign relations. Foreign resources are abundant here. More than 60 percent of foreign business agencies and more than 90 percent of foreign political agencies in Beijing are gathered in this district. The first, second and third embassy zones are located here, including the embassies of all countries, except Russia and Luxemburg, who have established diplomatic relations with China. As an open capital district, Chaoyang has also established friendly city relations with Manhattan in New York, United States; the La Defense Area in Paris, France; the Kangnam area in Seoul, Republic of Korea; as well as 24 cities in Germany, Japan, Australia and other countries.
Chaoyang is an important node connecting the Chinese economy to the economy of the world. Its renowned Central Business District (CBD) is located in this area. In the 3.99 sq.km region of CBD, the floor space that has been constructed or is being planned has reached to 10 sq.km. More than 120 of the world’s top-500 companies have established operations in the district. Of the 24 foreign-invested banks in Beijing, 17 are located here. The new Beijing Television Centre (BTV), China Central Television Headquarters (CCTV) and the International Media Centre of Phoenix TV are nearing completion in Chaoyang. There are many profitable business opportunities here. Well- famous transnational companies and well-known brands to choose from, the CBD is becoming a smorgasbord and welcome respite for the rich.
Chaoyang District is also a centre of modern sports and culture of the capital. All kinds of sports venues have functional and advanced equipments as well as supplementary services. The Asian Games, the World Junior Championships and many other international sports’ competitions have been held here with success. There are 14 main competition venues with different architectural styles. The Olympic Forest Park,“Bird’s Nest,”“Water Cube” and Olympic Press Centres will be landmarks in Beijing’ s new-century urban construction. The Olympic flag will soon flutter in the skies of 2008’s Beijing. Chaoyang District will take the Olympic business opportunities to develop its economy, sharing this feast with the whole world.

"Very comfortable apartment"
Good location, quiet, comfortable, but it needs some refreshment, kitchenette and bathroom are quite old. The owner is very kind, he was always available for helping us.

"No hassels, very satisfied, everything just as advertised"
Everything was just as I expected from the reviews that I read. The apartment is not a palace, but it is quite adequate and very clean. The two best selling points of the apartment are it location...great restaurant downstairs that is very reasonably priced and the apartment is centrally located and just a five minute walk to two subway lines...including an express train that runs to and from the airport. The other major selling point is Robert. He is awesome. He met us at 2:00am to give us the key and show us the apartment. I had lost a bag at the airport and Robert made multiple inquires and phone calls trying to recover the bag for me. I tried to book his apartment again in January but he had already booked it. He made multiple phone calls and email inquires both before our arrival and after to make sure all was well. Robert is simply awesome. I will ALWAYS call Robert first to book this apartment anytime I am in Beijing. Don't hesitate to book this place...you will be satisfied.

The building houses businesses and residences. It was a bit of a culture shock. The shower was somewhat stressful as we kept worrying about the water all over the floor. It was fantastic to have a washer and dryer (although, the dryer does very little drying). The apartment was quiet most of the time and located in a central location, between two major subway stops. There are also taxis everywhere. We often walked to restaurants and stores around the corner. The two restaurants on the first floor were great, too!
Our host offered trips to and to drive us around, which was really helpful! The kitchen had most utensils and pots that one could need. It was great having a kitchen and refrigerator (small). And, there was Wifi!

"Comfortable and Convenient"
This apartment was in a perfect location. It was close to a lot of vendors, restaurants, and even a McDonalds. It was very quiet in the evenings which resulted in a good solid rest for the next day's adventures.
I felt very safe in this area and in the apartment. I was travelling by myself and was not an experienced traveller. There was security at the main entrance and they were always friendly.
I would definitely stay here again, if I get another chance to go to Beijing.

"Clean, affordable apartment convenient to subway and tourist attractions"
The location was very convenient to the airport express and the subway which gets you to almost all the tourist attractions. The apartment was clean and bright, the bed and bedding comfortable. There was a small heat wave during our visit, so we really appreciated the efficient air-conditioning and the drinking water provided by the apartment owner. The kitchen was basic but we found such incredibly inexpensive little restaurants right behind the building for breakfast that we could not justify cooking! The restaurant on the ground floor was also pretty good, so we only used the fridge to store some fruit and pretty well just ate out. It is great to have laundry facilities although the dryer was not very efficient, something we did not bother investigating. The owner is very responsive when we needed anything, so we highly recommend this rental with the caveat: this is not a luxury rental.

"We really enjoyed it"
We stayed in Yuanjia appartment for more than two weeks. We really liked the location, close to two subway stations and many bus lines. Also - and that is important for a stay in Beijing these days - it was easy to get a taxi. There are lots of shops around to buy drinks and food. Robert, the owner, speaks very good English and it is very easy to handle things with him. He is very friendly and even gave us a lift to the airport when we went home.
The appartment itself might not be comparable to a five star hotel, but it was clean, quiet ( less noise than in a hotel) and had a kitchen, washing machine, big fridge, wifi, TV and so on. When we asked for a DVD- player Robert even bought one.
We will stay there again.

"Great place to stay in Beijing"
I was very satisfied with my stay in this apartment.
The owner was very flexible with check in/ check out times.
The studio was clean, bright and conveniently located. I would definitely go back there if I come back to Beijing.
