I love my artistic and comfortable home. But my job is quite busy sometimes, so I am here to share the extra space with you. Hope you can enjoy your stay in my home as much as I do.
Your bedroom named 桃花 LUCKY FLOWER. Why give it this name? It is not only because the bedings are mainly pink , there is an copy of famous Chinese painting collected from the Palace Museum, but also because the guests who lived here have celebrated their birthday, who found out they were pregnant, and who spent their love anniversary here,etc. Also there are many interesting people who have lived here achieve what they want during their stay: the startup CEOs made successful deals with their clients, the film makers wrote great stories, the Marathon runner achieve his personal best competition result, etc. I see flower as the symble of good luck. I hope this room can brings you joy and good luck as well. You bedroom fits two (King size bed) ,plus you have access to the whole apartment besides my own bedroom. King size bed measures 180cm x 200cm. You know better if it is big enough for you. There is also a super big wardrobe in your room. The bedroom is not too big (100sq ft) but cosy and well organized. It is balanced with a big living room where you are welcome at any time to get together and hang out. Your room is isolated from the street, it is inside the apartment, conveniently located next to the bathroom and kitchen. Your room is north facing. There is a window facing the other residential building.
Bathroom is shared and it is located next door to your room along with the kitchen which you are free to use. Free guest shampoo, bath gel are on the top of the shelf next to the window in the bathroom. Free tooth brush and toothpaste are on the shelf next to the mirror in the bathroom. Clean 5-star hotel towel is on your (URL HIDDEN) will have access to the living room with cable TV, wifi, dinner table, Piano, Ukulele, balcony and what not (if the city itself is not entertaining enough).
Besides the above facilities and service, you can also enjoy free Yunnan coffee, Lipton Yellow Label Tea in the kitchen. You are welcome to enjoy some fresh fruit and dessert that I share with you. If you are lucky, you may have the chance to taste the healthy&delicious food that "Zhenzhen's kitchen" offered.
I have a lot of friends.they like to hang out here sometimes. Don't hesitate to join us in the living room for a movie or a game of cards if it pleases you. You can also totally ignore us and stay in the room. We respect your privacy. Normally by 11 pm everybody leaves and at midnight we are fast asleep.
I am lucky to live in a great neighborhood. My home is located right next to the Fu Xing Men Wai Da Jie, it is the extension part of the Chang An Jie, where close to most of thetourists attractions so you won't even need to take a taxi to see the city's best. It is a 5 minute walk to Beijing Capital Museum, 10 mins walk to the Central Conservatory of Music, 12 mins subway to the Tian An Men Square, National Centre for the Performing Arts, National Museum of China, Palace Museum, Qian Men Street, 9 mins subway to Military museum, The China Millennium Monument,16 mins subway to the Temple of Heaven, 22 mins subway to the Temple of Earth,etc. Also, the Great Wall express bus can pick you up from home, it only cost you 1.5 hour one way, and RMB 50 round trip. (All you need to do is to book a seat one day before.)
Don't miss Beijing's nightlife. It's happening just 25 mins subway away in Sanlitun and Gongti Area.
Public transportation is super convenient. 3mins walk you can arrive the Line1 Nan Li Shi Lu subway station and bus station. There are also bicycle rental service in the famous travel attractions, the nearest two bicycle rental service stops are 3 mins walk , on the Zhen Wu Miao Er Tiao, next to the China National Radio station and the China Central Television Audio-Visual Archives. If you can't find it, I can show you where it is.
If you are coming from Beijing Capital Airport I would recommend that you take the Airport Express Train to Dong Zhi Men station and then Line 2 to Jian Guo Men station, and then Line 1 to Nan Li Shi Road Station which is 3 mins walk away from my home. This trip will take you about 45 mins and will cost you RMB29 Yuan. In a city like Beijing with heavy traffic all the time, taking subway is always faster, cheaper than a cab. However, if you have heavy luggages, I recommend the airport taxi, it will cost you take you about 1 hour and will cost you RMB 110 Yuan.
The best Chinese breakfast I've had in Beijing is in 2 mins walk. You can buy yogurt, fruits in the convenient shop in front of the house. Several backery shops are in 3-5 mins walk. The KFC and Starbucks nearby also offer western breakfast from 7 am.
There is a convenient store 华联超市in front of the house, where you can buy the necessities , such as towel, toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, shampoo, etc. 2 mins walk to a much bigger underground supermarket TIAN KE LONG 天客隆超市. There are food vendors selling Chinese Buns,pancakes, cooked meat, handmade Toufu, Chinese soy milk, and fresh fruits outside of the yard we live every Monday,Wednesday, Friday and Sunday around 5-7pm. There are also many restaurants and Banks nearby.
If you are visiting China from other countries, I highly recommend you to buy a Chinese SIM card. Spending RMB100 should be enough for a week of stay in Beijing. You can buy the SIM card from a China Mobile shop near my home in 2 mins walk. Or you can find any China Mobile or China Unicom shops in the airport or on your way to my home.
There is a smart weighing scale in the living room,you can use it to test your health. I also have a 1kg dumbbell which you can play. There is a massage&spa shop in front of the house. A free public fitness playground with Ping Pong table is cross the street,1 min walk. You can also run around the blocks if you are a runner.
Adaptor can be offered for foreign guests. So does VPN (with extra fee)
The checkin time is flexible. If you arrive early, lets say 9-11am, you can put your baggage in the living room then go to explore the city ,while waiting for the current guest to leave before noon, and the cleaning lady to do her job. Every situation is unique so we will work it out using common sense to make everyone comfortable.
May you have a fabulous stay in my home.
