We arrived on a Thursday and there is only 1-2 staff at the reception. We were greeted without care and emotion. The room is small and the shower area leaked water whole area outside the shower was soaked with water after a short shower. The shower head cannot be properly held on its stand and I try to fix for...

We travelled in China for a month and stayed in some of the best hotels (Six Senses, Angsana, Aman - etc) and some hostels on the Wall. This was one of our favourite places. I nearly did not stay here due to the Trip Adviser reviews but i am so glad we did! There were 2 of us but we...

Visited with a group of colleagues on an offsite. Were able to take one of the larger villas which was excellent - both comfortable and architecturally striking. Food good (though wine selection rather limited and expensive for what it was). It has its own private section of the Great Wall (about 2km) which is great for a morning walk. Other...

Our tour group stopped by the restaurant located in the Commune Hotel, on our way back to Beijing, after touring the Great Wall. We were fed family style - no menus were provided. The dishes were mainly Chinese style food, but very difficult to identify. Service staff did not speak English. Overall, the items were not tasty and unfamiliar in...

The location is fabulous, if I really wanna feel what the Great Wall is about stay there! But not more then one or 2 nights. It's quite remote, with really nothing around it. The rooms are quite theme design but not that great. The breakfast was also not bad. Over all facilities are good. But it's all about the nature...

Was there due to business meetings. The place is amazing and you have access to a private section of the wall. The service is average. Few staff members speak English but they do their best to understand and help. The food is really average, not worth to pay those prices.

Dozens of uniquely designed houses in the hills close to a section of the Great Wall. The house of our Superior Room was shared by 2 other rooms, but luckily there was nobody else so the wonderful shared space (kitchen, living room) was all for ourselves. Strangely, the booking systems so until the last minute that the place is full,...

This is a brilliant concept hotel in much need of some tender loving care. The location is beautiful, with multiple villas spread throughout a valley with private access to the Great Wall. The architecture is fantastic, but apart from the main lobby, restaurant and spa building, the rest is poorly maintained, with peeling paint and parts falling off. However, inside...

I stayed at the Commune by the Great Wall for one night and I need to agree with many of the previous comments and ratings. It is really really hard to review. The food was awful. I ordered soup and desert from the Western menu (terrible) and the breakfast was really lousy. Lots of choices but like the whole hotel...

We visited the Commune for a weekend trip from Beijing, attracted by the unique architecture and the opportunity to have a private access to the Great Wall. The design of the distributed buildings and the whole setting in the mountains is absolutely perfect and impressive. Each house has been designed by a different architect and has its own character. Yes,...

“The Hotel was really quiet but as you are sharing the villas with other people that can of course cause a lot of problems.”

“The Bamboo Houses are most warm and appealing. Bamboo House 2 is closest to the reception/gym/spa/restaurants and Great Wall. Lots of steps so not suitable for elderly or kids or persons with limited mobility”
