8 Stunning Apartments in Beijing You Can Rent on AirBnB

Updated: 21 September 2017
There are tons of hotels and guesthouses for you to choose to stay in Beijing, but if you are looking for a homely atmosphere and someone local you can talk to and ask for some tips, why not considering AirBnB rooms? Besides, you won’t imagine how affordable they are, especially compared with the AirBnB rooms in other big cities.

Ensuite Room in Nanluoguxiang Yard

Located in a traditional Chinese courtyard in the Nanluoguxiang tourist resort, the room will be your quiet little space inside the most crowded area in Beijing, with best vintage clothes stores and Houhai bar street just by the corner. The landlord promises to make sure of your comfortable stay by providing the simplistic Japanese style furniture, duvet stuffed with Xinjiang cotton and silk beddings. You may have your own bathroom as well, but the only deficiency is that there’s no private toilet, and you’ll have to go to the public bathroom 1-minute walk from the yard, like everybody else who live in the Beijing hutong does.

Cost per night from $31

Split Courtyard House with an Open Night View

Feeling like staying in the traditional Chinese courtyard but worrying about your privacy? The Split Courtyard House will solve you the problem. The courtyard in the historical Baitasi hutong area was designed into four private sections, so that each group of guests may enjoy the Chinese courtyard of their own – you can’t find such place anywhere else in the world because the Chinese courtyard was originally desired for sharing. Of course there’s a public space in the courtyard for you to exchange ideas with other guests too. The Split Courtyard House is so special that it was recognized by the “2015 Beijing Design Week” and was demonstrated in the city’s urban regeneration of historic area project.
