Next tot eh Great Wall

Posted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: The rooms and the location
Cons: Afternoon tea
Location: The Great wall of China!
The hotel is nice and we generally enjoyed our experience but there were 2 large parties there with a band so it spoilt in my opinion the ambience of the hotel

A project worth visiting

Posted Nov 4, 2012
Pros: Architecture and design
Cons: There was a kinda stinky smell in the room
Location: Beautiful. Awe-inspiring. The Great Wall. Come-on people!
We stayed one night at the Commune. Wow. What a project. I was stunned and taken in by the amazing architecture and design elements. The staff were really great. Everything was taken care of. Our otherwise delightful room in Chalet 1 had a strange odour of water stuck in pipes or sewerage. This bothered my travelling companion more so than I. The walk around to the wall was beautiful, even in the rain. And the whole setting was serene and otherworldly. While others had expressed concern at the service level of the hotel, I found it to be appropriate. Everyone was quite friendly and extremely helpful. And the restaurants were better and better priced than we had anticipated. I do so hope that they maintain the buildings and furnishings in the hotel. IT is truly a unique project, and I would recommend it to lovers of modern architecture, design and people who enjoy China and the Chinese experience.

Beautiful mountain retreat

Posted Jun 17, 2012
Pros: the design of the houses and the fact that is in at the wall
Cons: it needs a bit better upkeep
Location: amazing! on a beautiful part of the mountains outside Beijing, with private access to a piece of the Great Wall
It's a beautiful hotel, great location on the mountains and with access to a private section of the great wall. Some areas need a bit more upkeep, but in general its a great place. Great for designers/architects, every house is designed by renowned architects.

Pros: Location is as advertised, by the Great Wall
Cons: Service is good but not quite up to the 5 star standard advertised
Can be very hard to find. the entrance off the expressway is no signposted and the website does not give the phone no.of the hotel

Stunning Architecture and Private access to wall, perfect Beijing get away

Posted Aug 13, 2009
The buildings at the Commune are amazing. Stunning, sleek and airy architecture complimented with perfect lighting and top notch service.Being the only ones walking along the wall is a memorable experience. For the high standards of rooms and service the price is more than worth it. An excellent weekend away escaping the hustle and bustle of Beijing. The hotel has a pool, a few choice places for dining, a gorgeous yet a bit pricey spa, and a kid's play centre. Waking up to overlooking the wall was an absolute highlight of the whole China trip.

Emplacement ideal pour la muraille de chine

Posted Aug 25, 2012 on Hotels
Sejour unique sur la muraille de chine. La partie privee est authentique, meme si un peu dure a pratiquer (si vous avez le vertige...). Les villas sont magnifiques, nous avons adoré la Bamboo villa, chambre spacieuses et confortables. Pour y acceder, le meilleur plan est le train depuis Beijing North pour Badallin (6yuans) et un taxi jusqu'a l'hotel (50yuans max, prevoyez l'adresse en chinois); plus rentable que les 1300yuans chargés par l'hotel...
