Arrived in the afternoon.Perfect weather.Our guide told us it would take about 10 to 15 mins to reach the first outlook, We went up to the third one with short stops.The steps are mixed sizes small and some as high as 40cm.Im not 100% fit and made it up.
There are a mix of tourist/food shops below .Well worth the effort.

make sure to go on a day that is not raining or about to rain. The view of the mountains will be better without fog or humidity. It is very old wall and the architecture is really moving. I was touched to see this magnificent feat done by the Chinese people. Feeling the walls and stones really had an impact on me.

Totally impressed by the Great Wall we took a trip to Mutianyu which is further from Beijing but it takes you to some of the highest towers. We got a cable car to tower 14 then walked up to the steepest tower 20 amazing sights but a killer of a climb visited a jade factory also and Ming tombs and a tea speciality house on way back. Great value. You can also take a chair lift on this tour to tower 7 for 120yuan so is the cable car extra ) and toboggan down to entrance. Cable car takes you further higher and steeper. A must for Beijing visitors

Tastefully developed and with a chairlift to aid you onto the Great Wall, Mutianyu is the perfect location to view this ancient wonder. We were accompanied by Nancy our English speaking guide. Nancy us a true gem easing us along at our pace whilst at the same time ensuring that we gained a comprehensive understanding of what we were seeing and experiencing.

Decided to stay here based on proximity to GW so we could get up the wall early. It would have been smarter to stay in Beijing and charter a car in the early morning or join a tour. The hotel is at the top of a 1km, extremely steep driveway. To get to the entrance to the wall it's about 2km by foot from the hotel. When returning, you have to climb back up the driveway, which has sections as steep as anything on the wall.

The room aesthetic is nice, but the beds are hard and the furniture in different states of decay. We came during summer - very hot outside, but the A/C in the room worked well (on the other hand, the bathroom was like a sauna) .

I definitely overpaid for the experience - over $200 US for the night. Then the cost of getting transport at another US$200 RT to Beijing. I feared the traffic in Beijing and figured this was a way around it, but we caught traffic all the same when returning mid-day. If you can get a day tour to the Mutianyu wall for less than US250 a head, it's probably worth it.

The skeleton crew service was OK. The man and woman who attend to the place are kind of hard to find, but friendly and responsive considering my broken chinese. Minimal help in english.

I don't understand many of the positive reviews posted about this place. It's certainly rustic, but at the price of a top class Beijing Hotel, it comes nowhere close.

It would be a significant improvement if the hotel shuttled guests back and forth to the GW entrance in the back of the facility motorized tricycle (that would be fun, too).

If you're visiting the Great Wall, find another way.
