“Great place to stay for a family travelling to Beijing.” We had a great time in Beijing in September 2012! We arrived at 2.00 am which is late by any standards! The lovely owner was there to meet us at the apartment with the key. An hours drive from the airport (roughly 100 RMB), the apartment is clean and very well stocked with linen and kitchen stuff. A walk down to a plethora of eating places means you rarely have to cook - besides the food is amazing. Great to have ones own place - unlike a hotel - especially with kids - even if ours are not so little any more. I would recommend walking into the nearby Peixin Hotel and grabbing a handful of their cards as we found it a better way to communicate our location to cab drivers! 20 minute walk to the metro station making travelling the city easy. Easy walk to the shops to buy your everyday groceries - Google the chinese characters for things that are urgently needed to circumvent any translation problems. We stayed there for a week. The apartment felt friendly and safe. We would definitely go back to it if we ever return to Beijing. Thank you Jason and Mr. Jiangdong for your kindness and hospitality.
“Beijing Oasis centrally located.” Perfect spot to visit all of Beijing. Jason and his Dad were charming and helped us navigate. The very modern and clean apartment is situated among families and children, close to stores and restaurants, buses, taxis and the metro. We were able to book special tours to the Great Wall and other sites at the Hotel located blocks down the street.
“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.
