This apartment also equipped with washer and dryer which is very convenient for us. The location is excellent, just a five minutes walk to the famous XiMenDing Shopping Area and Subway station (exit1 or...

To be fair, the owners never advertised this as a warm and cozy home stay but the fact that they do not live there shows. Perhaps we were unlucky to have been allocated the worst unit of the lot but the mildew-filled grout and the slimy floor tiles in the shower stall in addition to the general wear and tear...

The room that we stayed in was spacious and comes with a comfy sofa set. We feel at home every time we come back after a day of shopping & adventure. The hosts (阿昌,小维 & 小武)were extremely friendly and helpful. They never failed to answer our questions and provide good suggestions. They provide a map with the nearby attractions for...

One disadvantage is that the bathroom tends to have minor "flood" after a bath as the water tends to flow slowly into the drainage. The minsu owner is friendly and takes the effort to explain every...

Handsome and friendly hosts (xiao wu and xiao wei)...waiting for us and spent time to show us the rooms and how to use the washing machine and dryer.

Love this accommodation. It's everything u can ask for. Short walk to ximending station in safe neighbourhood. Washing machine cum dryer in-room. Plenty of clean cupboard space, with many new clean hangers provided, how thoughtful. Lots of clean shelf space to place stuff. Feels just like home. Apartment on a busy street yet sleep quality was good. No noise from...
