We were recommended this hotel by a friend for our trip to see the Great Wall of China - so pleased we decided to stay. We were in the Chairman Suite (the only room they had free on the date when we booked) for one night. The whole hotel is lovely - really nicely decorated big rooms (quite indulgent in fact - admittedly we were in the Chairman Suite but the other rooms looked on par), lovely staff, well run - and has a fantastic 'feel' about it. The 'eco' elements are evident but certainly do not get in the way of this being a remarkably high standard hotel. We ate in their nearby 'Schoolyard' sister hotel (they can arrange free transfers between them) which was also very good food. Location wise they arranged a transfer for us from Beijing airport and then back to Beijing city the following afternoon- very efficient and they are very responsive and helpful over email. Whilst you are there they can arrange for free shuttles to the Wall (around 5-10min drive) or you can walk if you choose.
Highly recommended. Stay here if you plan on visiting the Great Wall, or just for a relaxing/romantic break. Ambiance, rooms, views, staff, food, amenities etc are all top drawer and will exceed expectations. We will definitely be returning if we have a spare day next time we're around Beijing!!
