We stayed here in June as a group of 4 women. The generous size of the unit and especially the bathroom was very welcome. It was immaculately clean and very peaceful in the evenings given it's location just off one of the busier roads. The location and service (Mei and her family are extremely helpful) is what sets this place apart. On previous visits I had stayed at the Citidines Central but I would prefer this apartment on my next visit. Great for families and small groups, with a small kitchen, but you'd be crazy to cook - the Muslim Quarter and all its tasty options are right on the doorstep. The relatively new subway is close by and makes for an easy journey to the new train station to catch the high speed train to Huashan for the day. (although first subway train is 6.30am so if you want an earlier start to Huashan grab a cab to the station - about 30rmb from memory). We did not take advantage of Mei's tours as we found we could do them considerably cheaper by just catching local buses. Mei confirmed for us which bus to catch and if your target is primarily the Warriors then catching the local bus is ideal. We only had one minor issue (although it was major at the time!) - the faulty lock on the door caused us to be locked into the apartment with no other means of exit. We lost a few hours of our last day waiting to be rescued (the door had to be dismantled) but Mei compensated us by arranging a private car to the airport so that we could add a few hours onto the end of our day. The lock had to be replaced so I know this would not be a problem in the future.
