It has it all - nice contemporary architecture, accomodation, restaurants, outdoor walking trails, Great Wall - you name, they got it! Nice place to have team meetings where you can combine business with outdoor activities.

The Commune by The Great Wall is located about 2 hours by car north west of Beijing. The Commune is an interesting concept where guests share a house with a large common area/kitchen. The bedrooms are essentially a hotel room. There were 3 bedrooms in the house in which we stayed. This is first class accommodation with modern, well-equiped bathrooms,... More

The concept and the buildings are quite impressive. However, the services at the western restaurant were so bad! We ordered our own appetizers and main courses. When the soups and salad dish came, they just put them all in the middle of the table. After we rearranged our own soups and salad ourselves and started for 2 minutes, the pasta... More

The trip to the Great Wall included my wife and I, my cousin, her husband and daughter (Nina) and my other cousin. Nina had heard about The Commune by the Great Wall from someone at work. It sounded like a great place to view the wall while getting a private tour. The ride was about 1.5 hours (one way) from... More

We went there for an overnight stay and loved it. Brandon at reservations was very helpful and prompt in the email follow-ups. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite at the Canteviler House no. 7. The rooms were small but clean. There was no view of the great wall as promised, so that was a disappointment. However, the quiet private... More

I haven't actually stayed at this hotel, but visited the area, had a drink at the cafe and checked out the Great Wall nearby. I can only say that the architectural design of the different suites, scattered all over the forest, is beautiful and very modern. Loved the use of eco-friendly bamboo! Not many visitors on this part of the... More

The restaurant is just located at the foot of the hill where the wall was built. Liked the dishes at the restaurant and design of the building.

We live in Beijing and heard a lot about Commune so we decided to make a 2 nights stay also in order to see the Great Wall. The hotel is now managed by Soho, no more by Kempinski. We payed a high price to have a so called "family room" and were extremely disappointed ! We came with our two... More

I am writing this review while still at the Commune. We came here from our home in Beijing hoping to spend 2 days relaxing at a beautiful location with 5 star service. Nothing like that: the Commune is no longer managed by Kempinski already since last November 2012, but that does not appear anywhere in their website. As a consequence... More

We recently spent one night and 1.5 days at the Commune. Overall it was a wonderful experience. We went there with the intent to get out of Beijing for part of the weekend.
