Review of Elizabeth W:
What a wonderful night spent at the Commune! It was a
mountain oasis from the ultra-modern Shanghai and Beijing.
The staff went out of their way to help us in all aspects,
they catered to all of our needs and provided superb
service. The restaurants were excellent, we enjoyed a
romantic and chic dinner after watching the sun set over the
mountains from our deck. Hiking alone on the Great Wall made
us feel like we were in another world. An unforgettable
experience, a not-to-miss.
