I went to relax with my family after a few hectic days in Beijing. My four kids enjoyed the Kids Club (there are extra charges for the kids club), and Grace who worked in the kids club was brilliant. I enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings (I love architecture and design) and spending time sitting up at the wall enjoying the quiet... More

This is our 5th visit in 3 years. We always returned due to the hotel's quietness. However we noticed obvious changes in service quality as the majority of guests are now mainland Chinese, with at least 3 generations together and loud kids. Together with us there are only 4 expat families in the entire hotel over the weekend. A few... More

The Commune is basically in the middle of nowhere. Therefore everything you might need has to be sourced from the hotel. Please note they do not offer complimentary room service. So in terms of food whatever you want, you have to go get it yourself from the bar / restaurant. The buildings are surely very interesting to see and are... More

Commune by the Wall as it is today can best be described as a graveyard of good intentions. I went there in 2008 and it was at its peak then (guess it was managed by Kempinski at that time). We revisited in 2013 and it was disappointing. The service levels have fallen drastically. The property is not maintained well anymore.... More

We stayed here with 2 youngish children (7 and 5) and we all loved it. It was great having private access to parts of the wall - we went up twice and there was nobody else there, the views were stunning. The room was good and I wanted to move into the kids club, they had really put a lot... More

Stayed there for 3 night during November 2013 for a business trip. Very nice stay and we had the entire apartment block for ourselves. The rooms are not very big but very cosy with all the modern comforts. The conference room is one of the best I have even seen. You get a very nice view of the wall from... More

I was here for 3 days for a business meeting. The accommodation was great and a good sized room had a view of the wall. The room was of a good standard and the bed extremely comfortable, I slept very well indeed. It was nice to walk from the room to the reception building each morning taking in the crisp... More

I stayed here for one night in August 2013 and thought it was fantastic. The staff were beyond excellent, my other half proposed here and they really pulled out all the stops to ensure that our stay went perfectly. I cannot comment on value, as I have not seen the total bill, but I would say as a one off... More

We wanted to see the great wall from our room and we were not disappointed. Having said that, not sure that all the rooms share the same view. Check it upon check-in. The setting of the hotel is nevertheless very nice with beautiful "gardens" and lot of different small buildings. The diner in the chinese type restaurant was excellent with... More

Some quick context, we visited as a couple, we live in Beijing and are very familiar with travelling in China. We stayed 1 night (Saturday) in late July. Paid 3000~ RMB for Superior room in Chalet 1, including BBQ buffet dinner and breakfast for 2 people. I booked the commune as a romantic weekend escape. So what happened.... here's the... More
