Templeside was a pleasant quiet stay. We had 2 adults, 4 children stay in a 3 bunk room with private bathroom. It was clean and quiet. It's a 15min walk (holding the slowest one) to subway station,we timed it. With the kids normal pace it would take 20/25min. We got to see a lot of interesting things and try food along the way so we didn't mind too much. Took the tour to the wall using templeside. The tour was good, usual stops along the way at tea houses etc for you to buy would have liked more time at the wall (2hours not enough, 3 would be perfect) and less at the shopping stops along the way. Templeside hutong accomodation have 2 sites. Initially we made the booking at templeside deluxe, changed our rooms a few months later and didn't realise that the new rooms were not at the deluxe version. Never saw the deluxe but apparently it was just around the corner. Would have liked to have been told about the change of venue out of courtesy. Only found out by accident from another couple enquiring as to why they had been put somewhere else. (did wonder where the court yard was!). We were happy where we were though so let it drop. Still good value for money.
