What the serviced apartments are like

Apartments are about 25 minute by foot or one one subway stop/15 minutes by bus from the school. You have your own bathroom and kitchen, the apartments are very safe, located in modern building complex and fully furnished. The apartment comes with 24/7 security service & reception service, air-con, heating, stove, microwave, WIFI, a fridge and weekly cleaning service. There is an international ATM in the complex that accepts international cards and the street outside has plenty of restaurants and shops.  The studio apartments are designed for one to two and the two bedroom apartments for two to four people. All bills are already included in the price.

What are the serviced apartments are not like

The apartments are renovated, furnished and offer good living quality. However, they are not a 5 star hotel and the quality of furniture and renovation might not be as high as for example in a homestay. Reception services are in Mandarin (you can of course always call us for help) and while the bus to school goes quite frequently, you might have to wait a bit for it to arrive. As it is not a hotel, the lay-out of the apartments can differ, with studios being between 35sm and 50sm big and two bedroom apartments between 56sm and 100sm. If you want it is possible to switch apartments, subject to availability.


  • Studio Apartment, 35sm – 50sm
  • Two Bedroom Apartment, 65sm – 100sm
If you require different size apartments, please let us know and we will find a suitable solution for you.

The Area

To get to the school, you will cross a renovated section of the Grand Canal. Built in the 5th century it is the world’s longest canal and today both still an important trading route and UNESCO world heritage site. There is a gym, Carrefour supermarket and banks all within walking distance. The Pingguo Art District, with plenty of bars, galleries and shops is a 10 minute walk away, as is the next subway station, the Jiulongguang subway cross where lines 7 and 14 connect.

testimonial fom former student Alex LTL Mandarin School Beijing“I found the serviced apartment a very good experience, especially that it was located close to school, with many restaurants in the area and two convenience stores in the building. Also the air con system was very good, which is important during Beijing summer. I  would gladly stay there again when I come to LTL for another course.”

testimonial fom former student Robert LTL Mandarin School Beijing

“I like living close to the school and the Central Business District, but still in a very traditional Chinese area, where I speak Mandarin wherever I go. It is good to have a place to relax and take a break after class, where life is easy, someone does the cleaning for you and there are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby. I am very happy I chose the serviced apartment option.”

– Robert, Switzerland (12 wks, Standard Individual)

testimonial fom former student Grischa LTL Mandarin School Beijing“The LTL serviced apartments are conveniently located, within 25 minutes walking distance from the school. Alternatively, there is also a bus stop opposite the compound which takes you close to the school (roughly 200 meters). The serviced apartments themselves are situated in a quiet and safe building complex which has an inside community court. It is very interesting and pleasant to watch typical Chinese activities such as “floor character drawing”, Tai Chi, badminton etc.
The apartments are bright and their layout is practical (bathroom, kitchenette and main room with bed, seating area and desk). Facilities include free wifi access, television, washing machine and air conditioning.
House administration is flexible and friendly – available all day round, they also offer a laundry service for bed linen and cleaning if needed. There are also good shopping facilities nearby: a grocery market opposite the compound, Tesco and Carrefour both within around 15 minutes walking distance.”

– Grischa, Germany (10 wks Intensive Individual)
