“Beginning of the Great Wall”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This is a beautiful Hotel in the middle of the old city. A step back into History
Please note the staff and shop owners do not speak english at all

The rooms is well equipped but not 4 wort a four star rating.
The One thing I did not like about the room was the Bathroom, Very small with an open shower over the toilet. The Bathroom is divided by from the bedroom with a glass panel and Plastic curtain

Only serve Chinese breakfast
Please make sure you get an English speaking guide, all names and boards are in Chinese

Reviewed 7 July 2011

Stayed in a standard room for one night in early July 2011. Really enjoyed our stay here - room wasn't spacious but featured decent AC, fast ethernet internet and clean bathroom with a hot shower. The location, right inside of the west gate of the old city, allows you to explore both in and out of the city walls which was nice, as we were able to get some good bbq/lanzhou la mian meals outside hutongs, while still be only about a five minute walk from the big sites on near the East Gate. Plus the price we were quoted was very reasonable - this hotel gets my recommendation!

Reviewed 27 April 2011

The Shanhai Holiday Hotel is ideally located in Shanhaiguan to experience the sights of this historic area. The staff are friendly and helpful. Sometimes in the restaurant the service is a bit overwhelming as the staff try so hard to do everything for the guests (down to private room to dine in with dedicated waiter). Sarah, the front lobby manager, is exceptional and will do anything for guests without it being any trouble to her whatsoever - every hotel should have a Sarah. The only hiccup with our stay was the pickup/transfer from the train station to the hotel was not there when the train arrived, and I had to phone the hotel to see what was going on. I was then told to take a taxi, and I had to stand my ground about having organised and paid for a car to pick us up. This was the only problem in an otherwise very enjoyable stay. The early check-in (after night train) and offer of late check-out (not needed) were very much appreciated. Overall a hotel that really looks after its guests. Stay there if you are in Shanhaiguan (but get a taxi to and from the train station).

Room Tip: Book a suite online - $68 Australian a night!
