Located on the top of the mountain with too small room and bathroom facilities. If you stay only for one or two nights and spend most of your time trekking around Huangshan area, this hotel will be a good place to stay. Restaurant, breakfast and room all average but with friendly staff

Planning our trip to Huangshan we understood that we want to stay at the top of mountains and that all hotels there would be overpriced. This is exactly relevant to Shilin hotel. In general the hotel is not bad; simply you need to understand that such location cost money, but not the hotel itself, I would rank it as 3*.... More

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...
