Great host - responsive communication, even offered to pick me up at the subway station, and dropped me off there the day I checked out. Your hospitality gave this experience an extra star rating!
The room itself is nice - it's just newly fixed up - pics are accurate, nice big shower area, love the nice washing machine. Basics are there for cooking (has rice cooker and microwave, if you drink coffee bring a French Press).
It's on the 4th floor without elevator so keep it in mind if you have large heavy suitcases. The building itself is older/run down, but generally quiet.
Line 8 subway station (Huaxing Road) is nearest to the room, about 15mins walk away. But fastest way to the business center nearby is the bus stop 5mins from the room (about 10mins bus ride) - we even walked once and it took about 20-25mins.
It's great there's a large grocery store (and KFC & McDonalds and other shops) about 7 mins walk away from the room.
Oh - host uses Great Wall Broadband internet for WIFI - unfortunately, VPN won''t work through this company's servers (I tried two VPN services, and read about this company not allowing VPN to work).
