“Special experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

I've been to the Simatai Guesthouse and it is a great experience. While currently the Simatai section of the great wall is officially closed, it is still possible to hike on the Great Wall there and do the well-known hike from Simatai to Jinshanling, and staying at this guesthouse makes it easy to do this. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, food great, interesting village nearby, and you can spend the night just a couple hundred meters from the wall. They also have a Facebook page with some details -- to help you arrange the trip there, as it's not easily accessible via public transportation.

DongPo restaurant and guesthouse is the real name of Sinatai guesthouse. It's locations is amazing with excellent views of the great wall en beyond the entrance gate, which means you have the place all to yourself late afternoon / evening. The food is really good and even if you don't stay overnight it is worth having lunch there.

The only con is the toilet, which is in a small house and is just a hole in the ground.

If you don't mind basic, clean accommodation then this is the place for you. If you like 4 - 5 star luxury then just do a day trip and try to have lunch at DongPo restaurant

This treasure is located just beyond the wall at Simatai. What an incredible place to eat and stay. We hiked from Jinshanling to Simatai and stayed at the Guesthouse. The food here was the best we had in China. The man and wife were great hosts. I highly recommend you stay or at least eat here!
