hotel is located near peaks of HuangShan, easy to find it, close to see sunrise or sunset. rooms are smelly and not big, but big enough, bring your toothbrush. food is good, even breakfast buffet offers little of western taste (sausage, eggs, tomatoes, toast bread, tea - for 50rmb), dinner buffet (120rmb) is good, recommended. choose room with window and...

This hotel was booked for 3 people. 2 in a double bedded room and another person in a single room. The rooms were adequate and reasonably clean. The toilet and shower room was quite unique and small but again adequate and reasonably clean. The hotel being on the higher slopes was very Chinese and although the buffet style breakfast and...

Having read about the cut-throat prices and the terrible service of the Huangshan mountain-top hotels, I approached Shilin with some degree of caution/scepticism. The price for a night for a tiny 15sqm room was very high but unfortunately necessary if one wanted to spend the night on the mountain in order to catch the mountain's legendary sunrise/sunsets. The room was... More

All the hotels in Huangshan mountains say they are a 4 star hotel. Well, you can discuss that. We have stayed in several hotels up there, but our stay in Shilin was the best. This hotel has a nice Photo-atmosphere. This year the staff spoke English. The location is perfect. And yes, you pay a lot of money but I... More

The hotel is at the top of the mountain. The hotel and restaurant supplies are lugged up, 100 kg at a time, by porters, suspended from bamboo rods supported on their shoulders. So I am not going to complain at being charged 800 yuan for a 14 square meter room, or 200 yuan for a chicken, a plate of fried... More

This was the worst hotel of our trip to China. The rooms were filthy and there ws mould everywhere. We had to change our rooms twice because we couldn't stay in the ones they offered us. The staff was also unfriendly and didn't speak any English. Never again!

Very close to the Beihai hotel that is on most maps. It's off the main track so I think it would be quieter than Beihai. Also closer to Lion's Peak for those who want to watch the sunrise. Lion's Peak is an easy 20 minute walk away. Some will complain that the restaurant is expensive but the food was great... More

Shilin is a decent hotel considering we are here to enjoy the nature and not to stay much in the room. It would have been more complete if they had some sort of coffee shop for a good evening conversation before retiring.

They charge me 1,480 rmb for one person and the room didn't even have toiletries. So much noise in the night because they let people sleep in the lobby. The service was the worst even if you ask something they answer you in a bad way. Food was ok but nothing special,it was 99 buffet. Don't stay here.
