The apartment has real possibilities! However, the list is long so be patient. The owner said the apartment had air conditioning in our emails. When we arrived he said that the building maintainence had yet to begin on the repairs of the ac. The drain in the shower flowed so poorly we were only able to take a 2 minute shower to keep the bathroom from flooding. The living room furniture was disgusting. Ripped fake leather with many band aid type repairs. In our emails I enquired about cable tv. He said many channels. He did fail to mention that out of the 35 channels only one is in english. Finally became tired of sweating at night and tried the ac. It worked great. So my assumption is he was pinching pennies. Also he charged me more than the $490.00 usd in his listing...
Also, the dishes and utensils were FILTHY! The hot water pot had never been cleaned and as I was drinking tea I noticed some odd. So I peeked in the pot! YUCK!
The apartment is located at the end of a very busy very narrow street that most taxi drivers can not find. Even the english speaking taxi service was never able to pick us up from the apartment. Two nights before we were to depart, the toilet stopped working. I tried to call the owner around 9:00 pm and he never answered my calls. Now I see why no person has left any feedback as this owner has been listed on TripAdvisor for a few years.
I think there are many other apartments that I will check out next time I am in Beijing, which happens to be in 2 months.... Good luck all and enjoy Beijing, it is AWESOME!
