Condo/Apartment
Located in the heart of Beijing and among the romantic old alleyways of the city, my home is a traditional Chinese house beautifully renovated into a cozy, peaceful studio loft. The neighborhood combines all the best parts of Beijing -- traditional urban fabric, longtime residents (my neighbors have been here for decades), and authentic Beijing vibes, alongside craft breweries and cafes. It is steps away from gorgeous cultural relics, imperial parks, restaurants, bars, and shopping! Space The space combines the beautiful bones of a traditional Chinese house (gorgeous columns and beams!) with a sleek, modern facelift. It is bright, cozy, well-appointed, and peaceful.

It is steps away from gorgeous cultural relics, imperial parks, restaurants, bars, and shopping! Space The space combines the beautiful bones of a traditional Chinese house (gorgeous columns and beams!) with a sleek, modern facelift. It is bright, cozy, well-appointed, and peaceful. It is situated in an old courtyard that is densely populated -- feels like walking into a countryside village! But one generally doesn't hear the neighbors unless they are passing by. It really feels like a quiet haven in the heart of the city. *NOTE: This place is probably not suitable for tall or clumsy people! Or those with bad backs! The loft area is close to beams (I am petite, and I have bumped my head when not being careful), also the closet area in the loft requires ducking under a large beam -- time to use your quads! More

Children are welcome, but the space is small and the stairs are steep! So, please use your own judgement as to whether this place would be safe for your child. The courtyard is quiet, so please keep the noise to a minimum, especially after 11pm! Thank you!

About the neighbourhood
The Drum Tower neighborhood (Gulou) is famous for its traditional alleyways and vibrant restaurants, bars, and shopping. It is located in the city center to the north of the Forbidden City. You can walk to the Forbidden City (roughly 40 mins) from the apartment, or you can meander there through the network of former imperial parks (Qianhai, Houhai, and Beihai Park with its beautiful hilltop pagoda). To the north, the Drum Tower, Confucian Temple, and Lama Temple are all within walking distance. If you walk east down our hutong (alleyway), you will hit the enormously popular (too popular) Nanluoguxiang with its many shops and restaurants. A five minute walk in one direction will get you to the most delicious coffee at Voyage Cafe, and in the
Getting around
The place is about 7 minutes walking from Shichahai station on line 8 and about 12 mins walking from the Nanluoguxiang station on lines 8 and 6. There are also bus stops, shared bikes, and taxis galore.
