This hotel is great in terms of location, just a 5 minute walk to the entrance of the Huangguoshu waterfall scenic area. Check in was quite fast, although I had the impression we woke up the entire hotel staff. More and more of them keep emerging from behind reception, as if startled by the presence of guests. Overall they were pleasant though and paying with a none China issued credit card was not a problem.
The room was big enough and nicely laid out. However the dead cockroach and mud-splattered curtains dampened our enthusiasm.
We tried to have dinner, but were told it was not possible - a tour group was occupying the restaurant and all attention went to them. They made no effort to accomodate us whatsoever.
We ended up walking down the street to the entrance of the scenic area and having dinner for 120RMB (2 people) at a restaurant that was luckily still open.
This place seems to cater to tour groups and there seems to be some seasonal variation in service levels.
I would think that individual travllers need to be aware that they are paying RMB500+ (in March at least) just for proximity to the waterfall. No other reason would justify the price.
Visiting the area and its attractions is possible from Anshun or even Guiyang, where there are more options and better prices.
I cannot recommend this hotel.
