  • Hello! Booking the Jinshan hotel

    Hi, I'm planning a very quick visit to the great wall at Jinshanling, and would love to book a night at the Jinshan hotel for two people on June 9 2017. I have a phone number, which I've called and got someone who doesn't speak English. I don't speak Chinese, so I couldn't book! I'd like to have a confirmed booking before I go, so how can I do that?

    PS - great forum! Love the maps.

    While there's probably no real need to book in advance, you'll have the same communication problem when you get there. Maybe you can find someone who will make the call for you. I used to go to Chinese restaurants at off hours and ask waitresses for this kind of favor.

    See this thread for details about the hotel.

      I have stayed at the Great Wall Box House many times and the owner (Joe is the name if I recall correctly) does speak English. It's just few minutes walk to the start of the Gubeikou wall which will connect to the Jinshanling wall if you are looking at doing the hike.

        I've heard Jinshanling is closed for retauration, do you know anything about this?
