Lovely place and communal areas, room itself was very cramped but good for money. Room was very dark though as was no main light only individual bed lamps. Wifi in communal area was excellent.

So a 7am start! Good job we didn't have a late night!
Two hour coach ride to the Great Wall, starting off early to avoid traffic.We arrived around 9am and other than the rows of stalls selling gifts the area was very quite.
