Yes, it is safe to visit the Great Wall of China(https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china_great_wall/) . In some sections like Badaling, Beijing(https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china_great_wall/scene/beijing/badaling.htm) and Mutianyu, Beijing(https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china_great_wall/scene/beijing/mutianyu.htm) , there are cables and pulleys etc for visitors' convenience. You may use them if the kids get tired. I'm afraid you wil not get an apartment in Beijing for a rather short time. how about Hotel Kapok, Beijing? it's close to Tiananmen square and there are courtrooms available.
