Brickyard Retreat at Mutianyu Great Wall

Horrible epxerience. What an overated place that is. I have no clue why the reputation of this place is still so good. It seems to have once been a good place but it must have gone down rapidly. Worst highlitghts: - overpriced, everything costs extra - no warm breakfast included even in the most expensive private house where I was staying, just cold snacks from the fridge - extra costs for warm breakfast - smelly, old, disgusting water in the whirlpool - food poising for most of us: eggs and vinegar were bad, overdue, dangerous - unfriendly horrible service staff --> Do not go there!!!!!!

Buena Onda

We enjoy the idea, food didn't meet my expectation. Happy hour from 5 to 7 pm Standard set up.
