“Hua Shan Hotel: a 4-star but 2-star quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

Except for the toilet and bed sheets, the room has dirt in all edges and corners of floor and table tops. Table lamp falling off, and dirty shades. Even the hot water was irrational, water toggling between real hot and cold water as you take bath. Road noise high(even on 7th flr).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

We stayed at the Hua Shan Hotel before and after a trip to Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain) as it was the hotel suggested by our tour guide. It was OK for the purpose. The lobby was large and attractive. The rooms were nice, but the carpet was stained and the sink was cracked. In our first room, we had a strong smoke smell (in a non-smoking room) and had problems with the water pressure and temperature. The second stay was better, but the water pressure and temperature again was a bit of a problem. A few of the staff spoke some English. We had a simple meal in the restaurant which was OK. Breakfast, while advertised as Oriental and Western, offered few western choices. They did have an egg station, but the chef made only eggs over very-easy, regardless of requested style. They also had bread/toast with jam. The location across the street from the Tunxi Ancient Street and the river was nice. Also, the hotel stored our luggage for free during our visit to Huang Shan. They offered storage of valuables behind the counter and storage of normal luggage in a secure room. Storage is essential as the mountain involves many steps and a long walk to the hotel, even after the cable car ride to the top. It is best to take only a backpack or light tote bag with the essentials for your stay on the mountain.

We spent two nights at the Huanshan Hotel. One before we went up to the Yellow (Huangshan) Mountains and one after we came back down. The room was some what drab and a bit worn, when we got off the elevator on our floor there was a couple of old sheets on the hall floor do to recent leak in the roof. The hall was dark and a bit musty not your typical 4 star establishment except for the fancy lobby. The rooms were clean and the beds were standard rock hard Chinese mattresses, price is low and location is very good. Had a view over the river and the location right across from the entrance to Tunxi Ancient town entrance was very handy. The heat didn't come on till around 7 at night....common practice in this provence which made for rather uncomfortable reading or relaxing outside of the warmth of bed.

The staff mostly didn't speak English but were very friendly and there was usually one person at the desk who figured out what we wanted. The business center was very helpful and the computer time was quite cheap. The business center as well as the Lobby and restaurant were always really COLD.

The restaurant was very inexpensive for dinner no one spoke English and it was pretty much just order by pointing and hope for the best. The food was hot, cheap and not to bad. Breakfast was pretty much Chinese fare with some ability to almost toast bread and they did have someone fixing omelets if you ate after 8 am.

I guess the location was it's best feature.

  • Liked — Cheap internet access and proximity to Ancient Town
  • Disliked — No heat available till 7pm....I like to have heat when I turn it on.
  • Tips/Secrets — Better restaurants in Ancient town than the hotel restaurant
