“Beautiful Historic Parl - best in autumn”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

Did a quick day trip from Beijing, took an hour by car from down town due to traffic but worth it.

In Autumn with the leaves turning this would be a spectacular place, but at any time of year it is a beautiful place to walk around.

Quite a few historic buildings including an old residence of Chairman Mao's, there is some real history to be seen and learned.

There is a cable car / chair lift to take you to the top of the mountain (500+ metres) but walking up is a good way to go, you can see all the sites to make it a little easier, then cable car down.

Worth the travelling time.

Reviewed 24 August 2009

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. First of all, the pictures on the internet do not even look close to the kind of room I was in. Even the furniture is totally different. My room had filthy carpets and the bathroom smelled like a wet dog. The beds were rock hard and small. Everything was outdated including the TV. On the last day, as I was packing, ants kept coming out of my suitcase and I was SO annoyed. Not only that, the staff doesn't speak english. They claim to understand "a little" but they don't. Maybe something really simple, like, "CHECK-OUT". Also, the AC was the worst. It made the room so muggy and everything felt damp. The lobby isn't even cool. It's hot everywhere. The buffet has NO western food except for toast and watermelon. Everything else is Chinese food....and I've had Chinese food before but this buffet doesn't even make it look appetizing.
After a long flight, this was not what I was expecting. Thank goodness we moved hotels.

Reviewed 5 August 2009

My wife and were disappointed in Fragrant Hill Hotel. We traveled there to celebrate our anniversary, only to find that every arrangement offered on the hotel's own website had to be renegotiated when we arrived at check-in, including: price of the room, size and number of beds, and even the view we requested when our booking was accepted. The hotel is showing signs of aging and the service reminded us of the old Maoist days when workers didn't really expect to work to get paid. There was no drinking water provided beyond boiled tap water (safe, but tastes like rusty pipes). We hope to never return to Fragrant Hill Hotel.
