My home is located in north Chengde (承德), where the World Heritage Puning Temple (普宁寺), Putuo Zongcheng Temple (普陀宗乘寺), Xumi Fushou Temple (须弥福寿寺), and Anyuan Temple (安远庙) are seated around. The community is surrounded by hills and Chengde’s mother river Wulie He (武烈河) just runs in front of it. You can see the Hammer Peak (磬锤峰) and lovely pavilions from the windows and on the balcony. The famous Mountain Resort (避暑山庄) is a 15mins drive.
It has three cosy bed rooms, a bright living room, a modern kitchen, and two baths rooms. We happily provide sheets, towels and the basic essentials. Feel free to use the laundry washer in the bath room, and cook meal in the kitchen. Parking in the community is free.
1. Location is the most valuable point. It is right across the summer mountain resort, 3 min on foot, shopping mall and restaurants everywhere. If you drove there, pay a lot of attention to the ring road. 2. Bad smell in the whole apartment all the time. Cigarette smell! It's on the sofa, in the wallpaper, in the bed&bedding! There is gas leaking in the kitchen, so DO SLEEP WITH THE DOOR CLOSED! I was woken up 3 times at night by the strong cigarette smell, hated that! 3. Don't believe the bathroom photos, it's a total LIE! And certainly don't use any of the towels, the disposable toothbrushes and cups! 4. The water boiler is broken and stinks like shit, yes, I mean shit. Buy some water and drink, don't try to boil because it'll be shitty. 5. Cold apartment, very cold. We had to fetch another blanket in the other bedroom to sleep. The aircon must stay on, which makes the room super super dry. Put a wet towel on the floor before you go to sleep otherwise you'd be coughing blood the next morning. Stinky stinky apartment!!!!!!
