The Brickyard Retreat was in a beautiful location and our room had a view of part of the Great Wall. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. Good food and ambience at the restaurant. Raj was friendly and helpful and arranged transportation to the airport for us.

Rooms are sustainably basic but have what you need and are comfortable (or at least ours was). I like that there is no room TV, it’s not what you come for (but there is a TV room). Rooms face North for view of the great wall atop the hill and the upper glass for viewing is not draped and cannot...

Take a break from the hustle and smog of city to enjoy the a peaceful retreat in a village nestled under jagged peaks topped by the ancient watchtowers of Mutianyu. For those who enjoy the luxury of simplicity, you will not be disappointed. James Spear has thoughtfully designed with a unique refined elegance within an abandoned glazed tile factory. His...

My girlfriend and I came to this place and stayed in the Chairman Suite during the Easter weekend. The design of the room and the view to the Great Wall is spectacular.

We pre booked and prepaid for 3 separate rooms, our schedule was to arrive for check-in around 10pm. Upon arrival we were told by the onsite manager that our 3 separate rooms were not available and that they "upgraded" us to one of their 3 bedroom "villas", he also told that we needed to pay an upgrade fee because they...

I stayed here with my family after visiting the Great Wall. The facilities are beautiful with views of the wall. The main hotel with restaurant and check in is just a 5 minute shuttle ride (hotel provided). The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I cannot say enough about the beauty of the properties. We will definitely return.

We ate here after visiting the Great Wall. I enjoyed a nice rye bread with mushroom and some grilled vegetables. This place also has great views and it is a hotel even though we just used the restaurant.

Stayed at the Apricot Lane this time and it was simply fantastic. It was a brand new house and the amenities were superb. It had the added benefit of being closest to the wall. I would highly recommend it! That evening, the hotel hosted a communal dinner where guests dined together over a feast of Chinese wraps and excellent Barolo....
