Because of the low season, Baiyun was the only hotel on the mountain top that was still open, so the choice was predetermined. We intended to stay in dorm beds (100Y) in rooms for six, but changed our mind and got a private room (Y460). Dorm rooms were pretty nice: well-heated, with cozy wooden beds and fluffy bedding; tea kettles were available and bathrooms were clean. But boys and girls have to live separately, so I'm happy we upgraded to a private room. After a strenuous hike up the eastern slope, privacy and rest felt well-deserved.
The room's quality was that of a Y200-300 room in an average provincial hotel in China, but the high-season price is Y1080, so the low-season discount price felt fair by comparison. Everything in the room and bathroom was new; there was a kettle and a water purifier in the bathroom (which is important if you consider that a 1.5 liter bottle of water costs Y25 in the hotel shop). The heater was powerful, and the blankets were thick. The hotel is very close to Guangmingding (Bright Top Peak), so it's perfect for getting up to catch the sunrise; besides, the lobby has a display with weather forecast and times of sunrise and sunset.
