A short walk from Sanlitun (Beijing´s diplomatic quarter) and the Lufthansa Center. SOHO Residence consists of a single building. One of Beijing´s few low density properties. The better layouts have bright spaces. Apartments at SOHO Residence have minimalist decor including paneled corridors. Open kitchen at many units. Basic but functional gym and pool facilities. Kids playground but no garden. Very high occupancy.
*Pros: SOHO Residence is walking distance to Sanlitun. Minimalist decor and furnishings. Gym and pool access included in the rent.
*Cons: SOHO Residence has no garden. Originally built as an office building. Most layouts are excellent, but a few are impractical.

We have been living here for nearly 2 years now and we are still very happy. Staying in a 3 bed apartment and the thing we like about Soho Residence is the feeling of space and exclusivity available both within the properties and the communal areas. Good sized kitchens fully equipped. The standard of spoken English here is excellent amongst all the management staff and they can provide additional services like dry cleaning etc. The gym, massage rooms, yoga classes and massive pool are all excellent bonuses and very useful for trying to get back into shape after a late night. Kids play area could be a little bigger, but to be honest the wife loves taking them for walks around the embassy area because of all the trees and Liangma River. We feel very safe here.
Location is a 4 minute walk to Liang Ma Bridge subway on line 10 and it’s really easy to get a cab on an evening out. 7/11 (30 secs walk) with a JingKeLong supermarket and international produce market (3 mins) and Jenny Lous (10 mins) away. There are hundreds of restaurants all within a 5 mins walk. I work in CBD, so it’s either a 7 min subway ride or a 10 min cab depending on traffic, however Dongzhimen and Sanlitun or all on our doorstep. Very convenient to get around in town and get onto the airport expressway when I travel.
Above all, Soho Residence is a surprisingly quiet place to live which allows you to escape from it all. Compared to Soho Sanlitun, where I have friends, and there’s just too much hussle and bussle. A good mix of friendly families and single professionals who are here to live and enjoy life. Well recommended!
I’ve been in Beijing for over 5 years and I have to say that Soho Residences is one of the better run developments in Central Beijing. The management has English speakers, who are always willing to help with any issues that have arisen and have always been professional and friendly. There’s just a feeling of class and position that other developments just don’t have, they’ve really been helpful. The gym, while a little small, is still equipped well and the pool is fabulous for the kids in the afternoon. I’ve found it so convenient for shopping, as local supermarkets; the Lufthansa Centre and the Westin Hotel are just a stone’s throw away. Line 10 is really close and when we want to go out to eat, we can either walk 2 minutes for the Westin’s Sunday brunch or Bar Street is within walking distance. Positioned next door to the embassy district, it’s a relaxing little oasis in the middle of this busy city. My only gripe is the car park is a little restrictive. Apart from that heartily recommended.Share this review with a friend
