We spent 2 nights here in May 2015 and loved it. We stayed in the private double room and yes, although it is a bit pricey, it is very nice and I think an excellent choice especially for a special occasion. The fireplace in the room is a lovely extra touch. It is located in a quite village (although there... More

The Great Wall Box House is in a wonderful position on the outskirts of Gubeikou village with views over the Great Wall. I stayed in a dormitory room with six beds and a shared bathroom a short walk away. The room was warm and the bed very comfortable. The only slight problem with the room was that there is no...

Amazing hosts, heated toilet seats, friendly cats, and amazingly close to The Great Wall. This place is the best and I would absolutely go back in a heartbeat. Monica was incredibly helpful -- she coordinating our transportation, gave us great directions to the trail head, and provided awesome food pre & post-hike. Again -- I would love to go back... More

Stayed 2 nights in November 2014. Arranged Airport transfer through Hotel for 500 RMB. Room very comfortable and clean. All meals provided and were fresh and tasty. Excellent value. Ask for sandwiched to take on full day hikes. Staff can give plenty of great advice about where to go. We dropped off our bags and went up onto the local... More

Visited with two kids, ages 4 and 8. Had been to the area before and knew that we wanted to stay close to the Wall as that was our main purpose for this visit to China, and staying in Beijing and taking day trips would have meant too much time in the car. This place way exceeded our expectations. We... More

This is an absolutely beautiful hostel / hotel. From the moment I arrived, I felt relaxed . It's just the atmosphere at this place. The staff are all very friendly and provide exceptional service. Getting to the hostel is another story. They provide very clear instructions on how to get there. I had no problems following the directions. Note, watch... More

I stayed here towards the end of a 3 week holiday in China and it was probably the highlight of the trip. From booking to departure, communication was superb. GWBH provided detailed instructions for how to get to the hotel via self-drive and public transport options. On arrival, we received a warm greeting and a walk-through of the hotel and... More

I traveled alone from Beijing to Gubeikou, which was an adventure and a half. Getting out of the village was easier, as the people who work at the hostel help out a lot with this. When I arrived, I was delighted to see the location of the hostel and was greeted by a very warm woman. The room I stayed... More

My girlfriend and I stayed her for one night during a 2-day hiking trip to the Simatai (sp?) section of the Great Wall. The location is great, and the rooms and common areas are very clean. There is even a nice area outside with lounge chairs. Despite what some prior reviewers said, the dinner they served us was plentiful -... More

My spouse and I spent two nights at the Box House and loved it. We were in the private room which is very nice if a bit pricey but the easy access to two great Wall hikes makes it worth the trip and cost. I highly recommend the Crouching Tiger hike. We met a woman at the guest house and... More
