The host, 猋 (Biao) is easily contactable, friendly, and very helpful. Registration with the authorities went smoothly. Apartment is located in an established residential area with walking distance from many restaurants (spoiled for choice), supermarkets, and a small shopping complex. The size is adequate, for max. 4 adults and 2 young children comfort-wise. Subway station is at least 10-min walk. Distance to Beijing CBD is a 35-min train ride. Suggest to re-establish the living/dining area, which currently is occupied by a queen size bed. There is no hot water in the kitchen or toilet taps, which is inconvenient. WiFi is slow accessing non-China sites, which is true anywhere. Internet HDTV with free movies is a delight for kids, but menu is all in Chinese. Overall, it is adequate but could be better.
