Although my room was rather small, it was clean and neat. The people at the front desk were all helpful and accommodating.
I will say, however, that this hotel was a little difficult to find. If you stay here and can't speak Chinese, be sure to have the hotel's phone number in order to have them tell a taxi driver how to get to the hotel.

... and spending an hour just getting TO the wall wasn't appealing. Tickets in hand we jump on a cable car up to the "top". It's just the top of the ride, the section of the wall we decide to hike is much higher (see pictures). We opt to go to the left. We are told there will be fewer people this way as it is a steeper climb. While we did encounter some people, there were no crowds. Before coming to China I had prepared myself to be with a million people at all times. So ...
After leaving Datong early in the morning we caught our last train in China to Beijing. We have made it from Koh Phi Phi in southern Thailand by the border with Malaysia to Beijing, whose nearest neighbors is North Korea. My rough estimate puts that at over 16,000 km just to complete the wiggly route to get here. Fortunately most of the kilometers were completed on Chinese sleeper train, while a 250km trip from Southern Laos ...
