Disadvantages:

The Sanlitun area is not very calm during night or day. It is not dangerous but it isn’t either an area to find a close community with children like other villas communities outside Beijing. Chaoyang Park is not far away but it will take you a 15 minutes ride. The Diplomatic compounds are not very new or even have a modern design but they are low and also convenient for families with children who want to live in the centre of Beijing.
