Check-in asked to keep my original passport
Note: each serviced apartment has a washer with inbuilt dryer so be sure to bring along your own laundry detergent. Sheets are vvv fresh and clean, and pure white. Upon check-in, there were 2 bottles of free Perrier water provided and some fruit. Free continental breakfast was simple but v nice. Jura coffee machine and free to go paper cups. Also note: the official address is Tower 11& 12, Novel Century, Lane 81 Xin Geng Road but this is the side entrance that needs a key card to get in. Ask the car to drop you at Lane 171, Tian Yao Qiao Road (there are no signs either offering this info, and saw a few frustrated and confused guests) Note: upon check in, the receptionist wanted my original passport to keep for half a day, she said she needed the actual passport to bring to the police station. I offered her a photocopy of the passport but she refused. She wanted the actual passport. This didn't sound right. I didn't do so and checked out the next day.
