  • Honestly loved being here, the staff were extremely helpful and nice. The location of this place is awesome since all the main places are within 30 min via taxi or subway (subway is your best bet!) The only thing I didn't like was that the AC was kept low, sometimes too low. We went in the winter where it was 15-18 degrees F (-9.4- -7.7C) and would have liked it warmer since we are from Florida USA. Never had a problem with the bathroom but the curtain could have gone all the way. Highly rec!!!!

  • This was my second time to stay at DBPA and I have been happy each time I've stayed. The trips organized and/or led by the staff are superb. We camped on the great wall and had a great experience. Even on a hot June day the short hike to an uncommonly visited part of the wall was spectacular. Sunset and sunrise were both great. Joe did a good job leading the trip. I would have loved to have been able to hike for a few more hours to get further into the mountains, but what we did was fine.
