Teddy Bear Hotel
Ranked #2 of 326 Hotels in Emeishan
Reviewed October 6, 2013

we stayed at Teddy Bear and Happy Hotel during our recent trip to Emeishan. while only a block apart, the differences were many. Teddy Bear had wonderful breakfasts and excellent stir fried rice dishes. Happy Hotel had more traditional Sichuan cuisine and surprised us with good quality. Teddy Bear had a pool table and an overall friendly buzz - staff and other travelers helped make the Teddy Bear warm and welcoming. our family stayed in a room with four beds and a private bathroom w/ shower for about 20% the price of the Happy Hotel. If you don't mind a little "rough around the edges" existence, you'll enjoy the savings at the Teddy Bear. If you need more right angles and finished trim work and have the $$, I suppose the Happy Hotel will suit you. However, while we were at the Happy Hotel, we kept coming back to Teddy Bear for many reasons. If we come back to Emeishan, we'll be booking at Teddy Bear exclusively!

This place was only ok. The son of the owner is really nice and helpful but the mother sure is not. The food is overpriced as is the mediocre 'Western' coffee. Internet did not work in the room which was cramped and full of threats on excess charges we would receive for accidents that may happen. I'd suggest eating at the amazing alley of food near the hostel and also possibly staying in the gorgeous monasteries in the hills.

Probably the nicest hostel we stayed in throughout our china trip (we stayed in about 10 total), and one of the cheapest.

The room was clean (with the exception of a slight smell in the bathroom) and very nice. The location was also pretty good, at the base of Emeishan and right next to the long distance bus station.

The staff were helpful and spoke good English.

Stayed here for a night on 10/9/2013. Teddy bear hotel is situated at bao Guo shi town (保国诗), jus beside the bus interchange (for buses from most major cities eg chengdu, leshan etc) and also the bus interchange for buses up to leidongping temple (雷同平) at emei Shang.
The hotel is really convenient! Stayed in room 309 which is a twin wooden room. Cost 228rmb for a night. Toothbrush, shower gel, shampoo, and electric kettle provided. The room looks really cute (not ugly but adorable) the pillows are kinda soft n flat but we made do with the extra quilts. The beds were firm and jus nice. Individual control aircon which is a plus point as it can be pretty warm at the time of the year.
Lots of eateries and restaurants near by, however, none look as clean as the restaurent by teddy bear hotel. Had a yummy good dinner that doesn't cost more than other restaurants out there. Service were fantastic! They serve with a smile.
Information are readily available from the counter. Staff speaks reasonably well English. Menu comes in English, Korean, French and some other language. Try their fried rice with pork and green chilie, simply delicious! (Not for those who can't take spicy stuff).
Hotel provides services require for most travelers, such as they are able to help you reserve plane and buses tickets, laundry services, free deposit of luggage etc. wifi is available thru out, even in rooms. Strong signal as well. Free walking stick (bamboo stick) for hikers. Come in handy for the wet stairs up the mt.

Now the things that I think the hotel should improve: 1st the bath room. WC is next to shower point which gets the toilet seat wet. Maybe a partition from the shower will be great. 2nd: how about free instant coffee and tea since there is an electric kettle in the room? 3rd: since some of us really get up early to beat the crowd in emeishan, how about serving breakfast before 6am since the first bus up to emeishan is 6am?

Overall, it's really a hidden gem. Well done for the staff and the owner!!

Ps: sad to hear that their brown poodle passed away :(

What can I say? Great everything. Value amazing for how much you get. Good food, great staff and rooms and amazing prices.

Laundry service is DIY but staff all speak English and are very helpful. We got a "small" one bed room for 2 people at 128yuan. Massages are about $10 USD and hour. Which you need after days of hiking.

Right next to bus station and ticker office. Short walk toai. Entrance to the mountain and hiking trails.

Loved it!

Staff were not too helpful with planning walking routes up Mt Emei, they gave us not advice on queing for tickets, busy weekends and what tickets to buy to best ways up and down. We had booked a car - organised by the hostel staff - to take us to Chengdu, pick up 7am. Just after the receptionist was ringing around people - it seemed it hadn't been organised when this was promised and we had given 200 yuan deposit. Finally car came at 730am, it wasn't the drivers own car, he didn't know where he was going, got lost on approach to Chengdu and car broke down, even with the help of a hitch hiker! It was a joke and dangerous, we abandaoned car and driver in the middle of a 6 laned moterway where he was broken down and got a cab! Staff need to be more organised and helpful.

Stayed here last November for two nights. I stayed in a large room, had a problem with the bathroom, mentioned it to the staff who quickly inspected and confirmed it, and immediately switch the room for me. There was construction opposite the hostel at the time i stayed there, hence noise may be expected, but it would have been completed by the time of writing.

Overall, Teddy Bear is a very nice and clean hostel. Interior is nicely decorated. There is a large common room with pool table etc. Staffs are very nice and happily pass you a map of emei shan and explain to you the walking route at emei. They also let you borrow a walking stick for free.
