AMAZING! We loved every second from the moment we arrived. From the outside this place looks like noting but when you go through the gates it is a lovely little courtyard with rooms all off the side. The main thing you will notice is the 12 gorgeous fussy cats that live here. If you are allergic DO NOT STAY hehe.... More

This hotel offers the opportunity to really enjoy the outdoors and some quiet downtime after frenetic Beijing. We took the easy option with two small kids and our Beijing guide drove us out to Gubeikou - about 2 hours on the road. The hotel offers beautiful spacious rooms, with great warm bedding and a chilly walk to shared bathrooms very... More

So it is a big hassle to get here either two buses from Beijing or one bus ride and an expensive taxi ride 140 yen . The power went out at 8am and didn't come back on until 5.30 pm which meant a whole day without power, internet, being able to call them when we gat lost on the wall... More

A truly wonderful place with top notch service in a breathtaking location. It is worth the effort to get here from Beijing. Took us around 2 and a half hours on the bus (the Box House will send you all the directions which are VERY helpful indeed!) and we found it not problem. Don't believe the people on the bus... More

Throughout my travels in China, staying at The Great Wall Box House and exploring the Gubeikou portion of the wall will forever be the highlight of my trip. It was worth the effort to get here and a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Beijing. The staff were very friendly and my room was more than adequate...everything appeared... More

We have just got back from a wonderful experience with The Great Wall Box House. We stayed in the twin room which was lovely, although, if your budget allows, we would definitely recommend the room with the fire. Every single detail was thought of in this place, and the staff were friendly and so helpful. Walking on the wall around... More

After leaving the hustle and bustle of Beijing, the Great Wall Box House offers the most tranquil experiece imaginable. It is a such a lovely retreat offering wonderful service, beautiful surroundings and delicious home-cooked meals. If your budget allows, the private room, with it's own fireplace, is incredibly cozy and romantic. Also, cuddling with the sweet resident cats was an... More

Through all the years of traveling we have never met such genuinely lovely people as Monica and Ju (sorry if names incorrectly spelt :s). From the point of arrival they were so welcoming and full of generosity! The location of this tranquil accommodation is set in a stunning ancient Chinese village situated beside the Great Wall itself. The room we... More

I stayed in this place twice, and loved it both times! The hostel is more like a boutique hotel and has lovely interiors, a dozen (?) cute cats (don't go here if you hate cats or are allergic to them!) and a beautiful, quaint courtyard with flowers, vegetables and a view of the great wall. Family dinners are fun and... More

Stayed here for a weekend. Awesome staff, great location. The place must be even better in the warmer time of the year - the yard is nice. The cats was an extra plus for our two kids. Will be back in the spring and enjoy a glass of wine in the yard.

This is Joe (Qiao), who is a big fan of the Great Wall. I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different types of the Great Wall: 1, Gubeikou Great Wall is the wild wall connected with Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall. 2, Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing. 3, If you want to experience REAL and WILD Great Wall, Gubeikou is the one what you must do.

Featuring stone walls and wooden furnishings, heated rooms come with Great Wall views. There are shared bathroom and heated toilet facilities in the courtyard.
