“Quiet modern boutique hotel near Emeishan”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Stayed at the Upper Zen (or ShangShe in pinyin mandarin) hotel based on the earlier positive reviews here. Was not disappointed. It was a nice and relatively new modern hotel which is located on the edge of the Dafuo Temple in Emeishan town.

To be clear, it is not staying in a monastery. (Sometimes these can be really spartan). Upper Zen is a modern boutique hotel. Small efficient front desk, breakfast restaurant and nicely appointed rooms. Dark wood and warm lighting for a quiet and serene ambiance befitting the location.

Breakfast was included in our rate (via ctrip.com). We had to leave early on the last morning to head up emeishan and their restaurant would not have been open. They were most accommodating and packed a simple takeaway bag for us the night before.

Since it is located near temple grounds, it is great for strolling around. Within 5-10 mins, there is a traditional chinese theatre, walking street and other attractions. If you leave the grounds in the other direction across the bridge, there is a large circular public park where the locals gather for the evening activities.

Food is within a 5-10 min walk away. The region is a new development which means the hustle and bustle typical of chinese cities has not quite arrived. Peaceful and desirable in my book. don't expect KTV lounges and massage parlours nearby. Instead, look forward to a calm and collected family environment.

Quiet spot. Great new and super clean hotel. Location is à bit off the main streets but ON the other hand quiet. 7km from baoguo temple. Only minus is it is so new That they are not busy enough to have à restaurant. Nearby options enough but take care to sit at a table before 8pm
