The commune is a very special and unusual hotel located near badaling (the Great Wall main touristy site) When entering the hotel grounds it felt like we were in a James Bond film, the different hotel houses are very modern and beautifully contrast but also in contradiction blend in with their natural surrounding thanks to the choice of colours and...

As other reviews have highlighted, it is quite difficult to write a concise, negative or positive overview of commune by the Great Wall. The experience is mixed and expectation difficult to manage. The below is a summary of my visit: Myself and my partner arrived at the Commune late afternoon having flown into Beijing from Guilin. The first thing to... More

This is a hard hotel to review and one of the strangest places I've stayed. It certainly wasn't a five star or luxury experience, arrived in the evening and wasn't offered any help with bags through the front door. Front desk staff didn't offer much emotion. After check-in we were driven to the closest villa, within each villa are multiple... More

I stayed here 1 night 2 days as part of a company workshop/retreat. The rooms were comfortable the food was nice. But the biggest drawcard is the short 10-15 minute walk to the great wall. It snowed overnight and we were greeted with the most amazing sights. Fantastic place to base yourself before exploring the wall.

I took my two kids (7&4) and my parents here for one night. It was really beautiful hotel with mountains and trees and Great Wall around it. It was fun to climb up the Great Wall. The service from reception and restaurant were not bad. The supervisor of house keeping was very rude though. We stayed in a three bedrooms... More

We started off horribly. the car that we booked to pick us up from the airport didn't even show up and It took the hotel 1 hour to send another one . When we arrived to the hotel to complain they were kind and gave as a discount as compensation. We then ate lunch at the restaurant which was way... More

We were a wedding party of around 80 guests. We were staying at the Bamboo house villa. Starting off with the negative (slight), the rooms are quite basic (although one of the most comfortable beds ever), and the overpriced restaurant with average food (2 cold coffees will empty your pockets by 12 GBP). Apart from this, this venue is splendid... More

I have given the Commune 5 stars because our experience of being the only people on the Great Wall watching sunset was just incredible. I researched as much as I could before booking and found mixed reviews on the hotel. I'm so glad we still booked it. I requested a quiet room in advance after reading reviews of noisy accommodation... More

Well I assume the great wall is the great place to visit for each and every person in the world if got a chance. I'm pretty much fascinated about it's build and the way it is. That's why the Hotel, Commune by the Great Wall meets up the need for people like me who want to visit the great wall.... More

This hotel is very original and very well located close to the great wall. The additional great thing is a private acces to the great wall which is a unic experience. The hotel is composed by several buildings constructed by architects severals years ago. This is for the positive points because a part that all the rest is negative. We... More
