Ideally located for one night stop. You can catch sunrise just around the corner and sunset is not too far away. The Xihai canyon is also about 30mins hike away. The twin room is very cosy and we are able to see the Taiping cable car from our window. Room is clean but small. What to expect when everything is... More

This hotel located at the Mt. Huangshan. The nearest hotel to go to Lion Peak for those who wants to see the sunrise. Unfortunately I was late at that time so the Lion Peak already pack with people. Make sure you bring your coat or jacket because even I went there on summer, the condition is very cold up there,... More

Previous reviewers had very negative things to say about the Shilin Hotel. Perhaps they only stayed in 1 place on the mountain top and were not able to compare the Shilin to other hotels in the vicinity. We stayed in 3 hotels over 3 nights and this one of the better places(the worst was Hotel Baiyun). We arrived at 1:30... More

Stayed here overnight having booked a queen room with a view on ctrip. One of the most expensive hotels on our trip for a second rate hotel. Checked in only to find our queen room was actually a double. The room was so small I couldn't even squeeze to do a push up next to the bed. Not that I... More

I'm writing this as a budget backpacker who stayed in the dorm room of the hotel, not the even more ridiculously priced rooms. The hotel is at the top of the mountain in a decent location. All hotels here take advantage of people wanting to stay the night so all drinks, food and accommodation are overpriced and you don't get... More

This hotel, which opened in 1998, is located at the foot of Lion Peak in the Yellow Mountain region. Essentially, it's at the top of a mountain, accommodates hikers and has a very high throughput of guests (few stay more than one night). Thus, we didn't expect much. Imagine our surprise, therefore, when we discovered a comfortable, genuinely four-star hotel... More

Hotel room is a bit small but did fit an adult and 2 kids. Beds are ok, room is warm during the winter. You just have to bring your own toiletries as they charged you if you use theirs. Food on the hotel is a bit expensive but porters have to carry them up every single day. You will bump... More

Stayed there is past December and it was a nice hotel. The rooms were a little small, but suited us fine. I get the compliantly about it being a 4 star hotel while most likely comparable to a holiday inn, but you are on top of a mountain, and porters must carry supplies to it on a daily basis. The...

This hotel at the top of Huangshan Mountain boasts a 4 star rating from the Chinese government, but would only rate 2 diamonds in the US on the AAA scale. First off, it's a bit of a hike (even if you don't take the scenic route) from either cable car station. You can hire porters to carry you in a... More

The service and attitude of the staff was very bad. Through our agency we had bought one night incl. breakfast, not buffet just simple table breakfast. When we came to ask where it was, they said that it was not incl. and that breakfast was never incl. in any room types. Back home in Shanghai I contacted the agency we... More
