The place in Beijing that is most suited to serviced apartments is Beijing CBD. This is the city's business hub, with Fortune 500 companies settlements in Beijing (sometimes their China's headquarter, 100 of those companies have office in the Beijing CBD).
The Beijing CBD project has been an amazing urban lansdcape change in 10 years. The project was launched in 2000 and since then everything is going very fast. The most iconic tower in this project is currently the CCTV tower and its design that was a tremendous challenge for structure engineers.
Actually more tha half of foreign companies in Beijing are located in this area, at the point that it is difficult to plan the future for the area with so much activity. The Beijing CBD needs to be extended, and solutions are being found up north in Wangjing, while IT companies are favored to move to Zhogguancun, in the west of Beijing.
There is currently even embassies in the area, if the original diplomatic district was in Sanlitun, it has moved and now embassies are spreading across Beijing. In Jianguomen, close to this area you find embassies of Great Britain, Koweit, Thailand, Mongolia.
