CIMG1057

These apartments are locate west of Xindong Road on the right side of Sanlitun Village and basically opposite of the famous Beijing Workers’ Stadium in Gongti Beilu. The entire area of Sanlitun offers not only Chinese and International restaurants but also luxury facilities and an entire city area of Nightclubs and bars. The place for public transport is also very convenient having a few bus lines in every main street and two subway lines near: Line 2 for Dongsishitiao and Line 10 with Tuanjiehu.

The Gym

Facilities:

It offers a small gym on the first floor with outdoor views, good management and private parking.

Advantages:

The Shimao compound is located in a very centric area, 20 minutes by walk from “The Place” and the Silk Market. It only will take you a 15 minutes ride to CBD and another 15 minutes to Lufthansa. Sanlitun is full of luxury brands and a few of the best restaurants having mostly all facilities. If you like to go out, you will not need more than 5 minutes by walk to the nightclubs or to the Sanlitun Bar Street. There are a few banks around and the Police Station is also 5 minutes away. It is also the neighbourhood of mostly all Embassies and official Culture centres.

Disadvantages:

Shimao does not offer a private outdoor space and 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.
