There is plaster falling off the walls, stains everywhere & a terrible smell. We were with a large group & had pre booked otherwise I would have left & happily stayed in the nearby town. It's government owned, has no competition nearby so they don't bother , they don't clean. they don't repair or refurbish. Staying there is a bit like doing time in a prison !

Room Tip: No - just avoid it.

This hotel is near Shaolin Temple (about a twenty minute walk form the main site), though the Temple is very commercialised and not worth a major trekto get there.
The receptionist was courteous and tried to be helpful.

However , ...
Bathroom was dirty, with hairs in basin and toilet (when I complained, they just wiped it over with a dirty towel).
'Air conditioning' was a concealed fan that was largely ineffective
Curtains in room were broken
Hotel decor was dirty and shabby (NOT a new hotel as some reviews say).
Breakfast was cold, greasy and unappetising, and crawling with flies
No internet access unless you have your own laptop
No fridge
Overpriced restaurant and local shop on site
No way of getting back to the town from the hotel with luggage apart from a 'taxi' arranged by hotel at over three times the going rate.
Our taxi driver could not find this hotel and took us to a real four star hotel called Chan Wu in DengFeng, which was sparkling, luxurious, and with extremely friendly staff, offering the same price accommodation. Would have stayed there had we not booked ZIH in advance.

If you are really keen to peek into the unique life in Shaolin, that is your only choice. The majority of visitors of the Shaolin temple and the kungfu schools come on organised day trips from Luyoang, Dengfeng and Zhengzhou. But the real magic of Shaolin can be felt only when those hoards of people are not there.

You could see that when they built the hotel, it was designed as an upscale retreat but poor management has left it quite vacant and slightly creepy. Your food choice would be limited not only in the hotel but also in the area as everything closes after dark. But nevertheless, the uniqueness of the location is its best asset.

p.s. A previous traveller mentioned that hotel staff wanted to withhold their deposit for damages they have not caused. We got our deposit back (500 RMB) with no questions asked.

We traveled to the Shaolin Temple from Zhengzhou and stayed at this hotel one night. We had planned on two nights and two rooms. The air conditioning did not work. We were told it is only turned on when it is hot outside. It was in the 80's when we were there. Bathrooms are dirty. They will inspect your room when you leave. If there is even one spot on any towels, you will pay $5 per towel that has a spot on it. We had a coffee stain on one towel and another stain on a bath mat that had been there when we checked in. We were charged $10USD on check out. We showed them the second room we had as well that had a stain on a bath mat it and they said, "Oh we klnow about that one". In other words, they will charge you for stains. Then, put the towel back in the room after it has been washed and probably charge the next customer who stays there. Hotel staff will NOT accommodate your needs. Very little English is spoken there. Restaurant staff and food is even worse! AVOID THIS HOTEL AND RESTAURANT.

Dirty, smelly and unhygienic - easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere! The room and bathroom had never been cleaned - the drains were blocked and there was blood splatters on the wall. Dust and bed mites prevailed and the smell of raw sewage in the bathroom was particularly unpleasant.

We chose this hotel as it is in the Shaolin Heritage Area, as my partner and his son had organised Gong Fu training with the Shaolin Monks. The best thing about the hotel is the location, which is perfect, however do not believe the 4 star rating the hotel has - they are dreaming and use this to charge top end prices.
