    A 派公寓 about 5 minutes walk from 双井 is pretty nice and within your budget, as is 时超国贸, which is between 国贸 and 双井。 富力城 at 双井 subway is quite nice, but it might be over your budget these days. I mainly know things around that area; don't know if it's convenient for you. Of course, you never want to deal with an agent, but people who've gone through the agent just southwest of the west entrance to a派公寓 have been pretty happy with them.

    Try 北京INN in Chao yang men area, close to subway, shopping mall, several supermarket etc. Anyway, good luck.

    @Minger: I'll check it out. I think one of the locations is a bit too far south though, it'll get a very long travel route for some of us:-)

    @Peter: Doubt that, there's not many 4-bedrooms around and a 4br in duplex sounds even more hard to find.. but it'd be cool to get separate floors for bedrooms / office.

    @Ryan: Nice :-)

    Not bad :-) Dongzhimen is great location-wise. Did you just go to random agent offices or did you use one particular?

    Call all the numbers that say they're not agents. Tell them that you want to rent out your apartment and ask if they can help you. When they say yes, block their numbers and repeat until you find a landlord. Rent from the landlord.

    That...that is brilliant. Jesus. Why didn't I think of that? Incredible. I will try this if/when I need to do so.
