Take metro line 8 from Shichaihai to Nanluoguxiang and transfer to metro line 6 to Dongsi. Then take metro line 6 to Puhuangyu and change to metro line 14 to Yongdingmenwai. The whole way takes around 45 mins on the way.

Yes! Take Airport Express Line from T2 or T3 to Sanyuanqiao Station. Next, change to metro line 10 to Beitucheng Station. Then, take metro line 8 to Olympic Center Station, Exit B2, and you can see it. The trip takes 40 to 45 minutes, and the fare is CNY 29. :)
