This was one of my worst stays in China, given the amount of money paid, could have stayed in a 5-star hotel in any tier-1 city.
Grouse no. 1: I am not local, but my better half is. And we were charged an extra 200RMB just because I am not holding a Chinese passport. (We nearly blew our top when they asked my husband to produce his identity card, as they didn't accept the China passport)
Grouse no. 2: we stayed in a standard room. The carpets looked really worn, there were hair everywhere on the carpet... I had to make sure kids wore their slippers everywhere in the room.
To be fair, their hot water was good and at a good pressure and they provided extra towels for the kids without prompting when we asked for 2 more pairs of slippers.
Breakfast was charged at 40RMB per set (no children rates).
Huangshan is a beautiful place but I would rather stay at the bottom of the mountain and take the cable car early in the morning to do all my hiking and have a good rest in the better priced hotels/hostels at the mountain side.
One last thing, location-wise, this would be good if you are hiking from baiheling and want to climb Guangmingding and on to Yingkesong, this hotel would be good. If from the other direction, ie Yingkesong to Beihai direction, stay at Beihai instead.
