Ventajas: The staff was helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. The location was very close to the ancient part of Great Wall and it was very convenient to travel to Great Wall.
Desventajas: We paid for the breakfast and when we reached there they did not acknowledge and serve them. We were supposed to be paying a certain amount of money including the breakfast and when we reached there they charged us extra but not serving breakfast.
Ventajas: The location and the fact that we had the hostel to ourselves. Facilities in the hostel were like a 5* hotel. Hosts were friendly too.
Desventajas: They need to make better food.
Ventajas: It is a nice location with the perfect opportunity to see an amazing part of the great wall not to far away. The wall wasn't crowded like it is around the main part in Badaling.
Desventajas: The Hostel rooms are nice and the facilities seem to be looked after well. Unfortunately there could be some bether communication between the Hostel staff/owner with their guest about what the Hostel offers and what they will charge you for. Despite that we really enjoyed our time there.
Desventajas: Pictures of the hotel was misleading. Requested for a mountain view room but was given a random room. Information on Official passports / visa process not well informed. Location not walking distance to Great Wall as mentioned on their page.
Ventajas: The hostel was very clean, the room was spacious and the location is great. The staff doesn’t speak English but I could communicate thanks to my poor Chinese and the staff is really friendly. I have seen some people complaining about food prices, is not that expensive compared to the ordinary restaurants around Beijing maybe 40% more expensive . Drinks were expensive anyway a can of coke can not be 10 yuan since is about 2 yuan on the market and 4 yuan at ordinary restaurants. Is not true that there is not another choice about food, if you walk down for about 10-15 min you can get the 919 bus and get off after 2 stations. You can see some restaurants by the side of the road one even selling traditional donkey meet. Anyway the prices are the same with the hostel’s ones.
Desventajas: TOILET DOORS! They just don’t exist. You have to share the the bathroom with 7 other people and this bathroom has no door, it has only a curtain( I don’t know the exact English definition for it ) but the problem is that everything is visible from this curtain, I mean is like having nothing. I will leave a picture of it so it can be checked.
Ventajas: I really loved to feel welcome! They invited me to join their dinner with friends what was really kind and what I really appreciate it.
Desventajas: That not all of the staff people speak English.
Ventajas: The staff were brilliant and helpful, even though they did not speak any English
Ventajas: The atmosphere was great. The place is right outside an amazing part of the wall near Badaling which is called Badaling ancient wall or few other names, anyway, the place has very few tourist, especially if you get there in the morning which is easy because you sleep there :) Food is great. Not cheap though.
Desventajas: The stuff was really helpful but didn't know much English. We used a translation app and it was great. The place is hard to find and there is no explanation on how to get there with public transportation even though it's possible.
Ventajas: What an amazing place to stay, the staff were so friendly and helpful, only 50m away from the entrance to The Great Wall of China, with no crowds
Desventajas: As often in China, the directions to get there are grossly insufficient. There is a bus stop only one kilometer away from the property. They do not tell you they are located in a famous place, the entrance to 古长城, gu chang cheng, the ancient wall. If you are a hiker, go there, you can spend a few hours alone even on very crowded days, while the official bit of the wall in Badaling, though a little bit more scenic, feels like Beijing's metro, because the stretch open to the public is ridiculously short. I did not find any other hiking trails in the area, they apparently do not want people to roam in the countryside.
Si decides alojarte en The Great Wall Courtyard Hostel de Yanqing, estarás a menos de 15 minutos en coche de Gran Muralla China, Badaling y Parque natural de Badaling. Tendrás consigna de equipaje, una lavandería y una caja fuerte en recepción a tu disposición. Hay un aparcamiento sin asistencia gratuito disponible.

Ventajas: The breakfast was terrible but staff were friendly.
Ventajas: The owner was amazingly nice and helpful. He helped us book a driver to visit the region and find the local spots to mingle with the villages and share in their local culture. Really beautiful place to explore through villages and mountains, right by the Great Wall.
Desventajas: Only downside is that where the hotel is located at, the village is in major renovation due to the upcoming Olympics. Kills of the charm of the place, but once its fully up and running, that village will be stunning and this hotel will be your best choice in the region.
Ventajas: This hotel is an amazing little place! The staff were friendly and attentive. They didn’t speak English but we managed using translate apps. The food was delicious, some of the best we ate in the whole trip!
Desventajas: Keep in mind the courtyard area gets very cold in winter, but you can get cosy in your room.
Ventajas: The owner is incredibly hospitable, and attentive to her guests' needs. From the moment we got there, she ensured we were comfortable and satisfied with our accommodation and offered us food to eat. During the day, she offered us tea and the restaurant makes delicious traditional Chinese meals for what I think was a reasonable price. The fact that a traditional Chinese breakfast is included in the nightly rate was a definite plus! I'll add that in the fall/winter it is pretty cold in the common areas and while there is a heater in the room, it still could be a little chilly- because I had read other reviews that said this, I came prepared for the weather, and thus the chilly atmosphere was all just part of the experience. Overall, the hostel exceeded my expectations and I'll definitely be coming back here. Another important note - she has a friendly schnauzer, who is very cute and well trained! He/she may walk up to greet you, but is otherwise kept away from guests.

Ventajas: The location is good, the staff is great
Desventajas: Not clean
Ventajas: It’s a fabulous experience staying with the family who owns the property. Very friendly and very helpful, can speak moderately good English, delicious homemade fresh noodle soup for dinner, and an exceptionally quiet place for a good rest and recharge away from the busy city life!! Will come back again and highly recommend to friends!
Desventajas: A little difficult to find for first timers but very responsive owner who spoke directly with the taxi driver to help find the way. Maybe a few more food options will be nice.
Ventajas: My first time going to the Great Wall. We decided to go the night before so that we walk to the wall early the next day. It was the best decision because we beat the crowd. And, the best part was staying at this lodge. A traditional Chinese lodge/hostel, very clean, comfortable, and run by a very nice family. They were very friendly, polite, and kind to us. The lodge was only ~ 7 minutes walk to the wall. I will go back and highly recommend this place.

Ventajas: The courtyard style was nice, though it was a bit too crowded with furniture. The hotel was super close to the Great Wall. Staff were lovely.
Desventajas: It’s on a road which is under construction so quite dusty and busy. Had been hoping it would feel more like a small village location. Room was small - lucky we only had small backpacks. No closets or room to open a large suitcase.
7,0 Muy bueno
Ventajas: Atypical place. Lovely welcoming owners/managers. Quite close to train station and the Great Wall entrance.
Desventajas: The dining room was very cold. Our room was also quite cold (only realised late at night that the heater was not working properly. No staff available then. Would have said something but only staid one night.)
Ventajas: Very friendly and helpful staff and owner. They gave us very good tips about activities and restaurants around. The courtyard is very peaceful and kids friendly, exactly what we needed :)
Desventajas: Currently there are big works in the village which makes it very dusty outside, difficult for sensitive people... but once inside the courtyard it is OK.
Si decides alojarte en Commune by The Great Wall de Changping, estarás a menos de 15 minutos en coche de Gran Muralla China, Badaling y Juyongguan. Tendrás un servicio de recepción las 24 horas y consigna de equipaje a tu disposición. Hay un aparcamiento sin asistencia gratuito disponible.
Ventajas: The houses dotted amongst the trees are beautiful. It is a peaceful place, and good for people who are looking for a nice place to walk from. Make sure your bring appropriate clothing!
Desventajas: 1). The initial room I was checked into was extremely different from the advertised room I had booked (much smaller, no seating area, no balcony etc). When I complained the kind staff moved me to a room that matched what I had booked, which was great, but they shouldn't have made the mistake in the first place. 2). The western menu is not really very western, it is clearly written by a local person based upon what they imagine a western menu to be, but it is very inferior compared to what one would expect internationally, including in international hotels in China. Especially restrictive for vegetarians. The Chinese menu is extensive, so if that is what you seek then you will be in luck. 3). The rooms and hotel lobby do not provide any guidance or information about local attractions or transport options. The hotel is close to a huge range of tourist attractions, parks, walking areas, historical tombs, etc - but you are very much alone in needing to discover it. If you are familiar with the area and have Chinese transport apps on your phone you should be ok, if you are from further away then you could easily miss the attractions of the area. 4). The room service menu is ridiculously limited (not even a single drink etc). The staff are kind and helpful, and when I requested things that were not on the menu (white wine, french fries etc) they provided them - but because the menu is so limited you have no idea how much you are going to pay!

Ventajas: The location, the infrastructure, and the way everything is kept clean and organized.
Desventajas: They try to compensate lack of competence with more people. Staff is mostly not trained well. Don't care about guests' request. Don't know how to take care of customers. Horribly managed.
Ventajas: It was beautiful. The staff was very accommodating and kind. No complaints.
Desventajas: Everything was gorgeous. No complaints.

Ventajas: the location was magical
Desventajas: rip off taxi ride booked by the hotel to go back to Beijing. Fee was set up by the hotel.
Ventajas: It's such a wonderful place out in the green. The villas are absolutely marvelous.
Desventajas: Managed by Kempinski? The problem was the bar and restaurant. The staff is badly trained, little knowledge about their own products. Tables weren't cleared at all and there were piles of plates and seafood shells in the middle of many tables including ours. The food quality as well as drinks at the bar were far off 5* quality (Kempinski?)
Ventajas: The private access to The Great Wall.
Desventajas: There is nothing to se at the hotel before May. The resturant with tio view is not Open. Thet Will not fall for a taxi bit tries to force you to pau 600 for drivning you to Beijing. We came with a taxi at 230. Stealing from tourists instead of just calling a cab. The restaurant served the main course before the starters - because the starters takes longer time to prepare..
Ventajas: Lovely place to stay and access to a private part of the Great Wall only for hotel guests
Ventajas: Amazing. It’s very own section of the wall. Rooms are incredible
Desventajas: Next to the Great Wall
Ventajas: Amazing complex of designed villas located in stunning location with a private access to the Great Wall. Highly recommended for families - the kids' zone is stunning!
Desventajas: We arrived to the hotel from Beijing by taxi (regular cab booked by previous hotel). We paid around 230 CNY for a ride (toll charge included). But when we asked Commune to book us a cab to go back to Beijing - the only option was a 600 CNY fixed rate cab...With a small child and heavy luggage we didn't have much of the options but to pay. Breakfast was a big disappointment, old bread, limited vegetarian options, bad coffee.
Ventajas: The beds were great but the service was better. Friendly, helpful staff - despite the fact I booked for the wrong date and showed up a day early, the staff were very accommodating and even upgraded us. Private access to the Great Wall was incredible - it's definitely worth going for.
Desventajas: Due to the size of the buildings, there was a fine layer of dust or dirt on the balcony however internally it was quite clean.
