In poor condition for such an expensive hotel
the location and the private path to the Great Wall
A bit of a disaster. The room was shabby and in poor condition. The broken down blinds wouldn't close or open properly and looked like they were from a tenement, not an expensive hotel. I noted the problem on arrival and was told an engineer would come. Never happend. Late that night, the manager came to apologize, but at that point the damage was done. Too tired and too late to change rooms. To make it worse, in the morning there was no hot water in the bathroom.

Design Museum worth to visit
Unique designs, green sourroundings, fresh air and private Great Wall
It's a place to go for design sight seeing. The buildings are more than 10 years old and deserve first renovation.

enjoy the design
the location, the design, the surroundings
the park and design building is fantastic, but the service is not qualified, such as no conditioner in bath room, no desk or tea pot in the bed room, too noisy, sound can't be isolated, i can clear hear the people in the beside room, even both of us close the door

Good, but it could have been better!
Secluded but accessible
First the good points. 1-After expressing disappointment with our room, we were quickly upgraded to a much nicer 2-room suite. In the suite, the bathroom was very nice, and the 2 rooms were big. But there were stains on some of the upholstery. 2-This is a nice enclave style property. You feel like you've gotten away from it all. 3-As an experiment in western architecture, it's fun to stroll around the very large property grounds...but after only 10 years, some of the property already looks a bit frayed, as do some of the staff uniforms. Now for some of the bad. 1-Dinner-time Room Service was delivered/served in plastic takeout containers instead of plates. (?!?!) 2-When it comes to complimentary tea service and other similar offers for guests, staff should "get it right the first time". 3-The pool is closed too early, at 7pm. Overall, it was a pleasant stay but there's a lot of room for improvement. It's all about attention to detail!

Worst hotel ever.
No great things, worst hotel ever.
I can tell you this hotel is the worst I have ever stayed, and by a long shot. Upon arrival, thy tried to shuffle us into a decrepit room, my girlfriend found cobwebs in the toilet! We changed room immediately, gave us a damp and dark place. Accepted it. So we had ordered room service for dinner, it came in plastic boxes! For the amount we are paying, it is atrocious. Plastic boxes carried in a plastic bag. The staff broke the plates (porcelain plates) while unpacking first time, so he brought it all back to redo, came back, the food had hair in it...at this time, the floor had broken shards of porcelain, we were very hungry, so proceeded to had dinner. The cleaners came during dinner wanting to sweep it up, but we said we are having dinner, leave it alone, and sweep tomorrow during cleaning. Next day, went out, I put the plastic saying "change my sheets" on the bed as needed. Ordered the hotel to arrange car transport for us to visit badaling great wall, they charged us 500rmb for a round trip, saying its 20+minutes away, so we had to pay. Fine, I paid.

RIP OFF!
COOL , SERVICE, NICE ROOMS
NO PRIVATE TRAIL TO GREAT WALL. IT’S A SHUT DOWN BY GOVERNMENT AND THE HOTEL DOESN’T TELL PEOPLE UNTIL AT CHECK IN!!! TRANSPORTATION IN FROM BEIJING CITY CENTER COSTED $350 CNY ON A REGULAR TAXI AFTER BARGINING. ON THE WAY OUT TO BEIJING AIRPORT, BECAUSE THE HOTEL KNOWS WE ARE STUCK, OPTIONS ARE 1) HOTEL CAR $1000+ CNY 2) HOTEL CALL A REGULAR TAXI FOR US $600 CNY 3) TAKE THE PUBLIC BUS FROM THE VILLAGE $2 (not sure how to get there and how long it will take) The above are experiences from my trip. Other than that, it’s a nice & cool hotel
