“Excellent option in Huangshan”
Reviewed 26 July 2010

This 5 star hotel is huge in every aspect. It is a large convention center at the front and guest rooms are located at the back. There is a lake in the middle of the complex. In the guest room building, and there are two of them, the corridors are the widest I've seen in any hotel. We stayed in the deluxe business rooms, and the room is very big. So big that the distance from the bed to the TV is so wide that I think the 32" inch is probably a bit small. Everything is modern and very new, very clean. The bathroom is very vogue, new style, where you can see from the bedroom.

There was a promotion on and we paid CNY 600 per night for 2 nights. There are cheaper rooms, which in hindsight will be very adequate for even the most demanding traveller.

The positives include a large selection at breakfast and good Chinese restaurant. While we were there, we noticed that the hotel was very quiet, so I guess, if there is no convention, there are hardly any guests.

The negatives include location, which is near the airport, but in the middle of no where. It is not far from the Tunxi town and there is a nightly shuttle to go to the ancient street. If you want to climb Mt Huangshan, I would recommend staying in Tangkou. If you are touring the nearby attractions and your budget allows a private car and driver, then this hotel is a good option.

Excellent, brand new hotel, with very helpful staff. Good restaurants and excellent value in this Chinese hotel. Assistant Manager practically became our personal assistant during our stay, arranging private transportation and translation via mobile phone. Truly a memorable stay and a great starting point for our excursions to the mountain and villages

I cannot rave enough about this hotel - the hotel is huge (we are usually boutique hotel travellers), but we had an amazing stay. The rooms were excellent - five star by all standards - and the restaurant was excellent both at dinner and the amazing breakfast buffet. The service we received from Tony, who spoke excellent English, was above and beyond any expectations. He purchased our bus tickets for us and delivered them during his off hours and was just incredibly friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

This is a huge, new, modern hotel and convention center that exceeds even Western expectations, certainly considering it's located in a small Chinese city.

Lobby and rooms are totally modern, the only Chinese touch being a traditional zig-zag walkway to the rear buildings. Rooms are good-sized by Western standards with moderately firm mattress, modern bathroom and two-way rainforest and hand shower.

The large breakfast buffet has considerable Chinese variety, and the egg station and cereals will leave even Iowans well fed, if not overjoyed at the absence of sweet rolls and crisp bacon.

The staff is friendly and eager to help, and if their English isn't up to the matter, a more fluent speaker is always close by.

Location is the only drawback; it takes a car or taxi to get to the old town. But Tunxi is mainly the gateway to Yellow Mountain, and the hotel serves that purpose well, even giving free loans of telescoping metal walking sticks.

There is free wired broadband in rooms; wifi in the lobby.

We need at hotel for an overnight stop-over before climbing the yellow mountain & after staying one night at this hotel, wished we could have stayed longer. Hotel offered a complimentry pick-up from bus station. check in was excellent, we stayed in an business room.
The room vas very good, brand-new, clean & very comfortable. beds very excellent & room was very quiet. I completely agree with previous review that this hotel will soon become no1 hotel in Huangshan.
Aside from the room being top-class, was sets this hotel apart form all the hotels we stayed at was the service. both the male assistant managers on duty during our stay were absolutely terrific & very helpful. They bot spoke english very well, which was such a relief. They were very attentive to every need. Breakfast was included in out room rate of $588rmb & was also top-class. a chef prepares your eggs & bacon cooked any style in front of you, whilst a huge range of hot & cold foods are available. restaurant staff are excellent.
The hotel allowed us to store our two heavy suitcases (for free) for us to collect after our stay on the yellow mountain. We decided to stay for a few drinks & dinner before our late night flight to shanghai & again everything was top-class from the drinks to the food. the assistant manager on duty, Lou was again very helpful & assisted us the arrangements to our Shanghai hotel - wrote gotel name & address in chinese for shanghai taxi driver which made our arrive in Shanghai stress free.
Again i cant say enough about this hotel. everything was top-class & would recommend to anyone.

After reading the reviews of the other hotels close to Huangshan, we decided to try this new hotel. We had an excellent experience, and we believe that this hotel will soon become the leading hotel in this area. Some parts of the hotel are still under construction, like the swimming pool etc, which will be finished around October 2008. The hotel is at the moment (August) working hard to do landscaping, and I think it will look pretty nice a year from now.

The rooms are very convenient, and compare very well with rooms in leading hotels like Hilton or Sheraton. The rooms have a flatscreen TV, and (wired) internet access is free.
The roomkey is used to enter the room, and is also used in the restaurants to charge to your room. Quite fancy.

The hotel has a Western restaurant and a Chinese restaurant. We only used the Western restaurant for breakfast, which was excellent, with a lot of choice of Western and Chinese breakfast food. We had dinner at the Chinese restaurant (~ EUR 30 for 3 people for a lot of food), and the quality was very good.
This is not a low-cost hotel (I paid EUR 88 per night), but if you appreciate some comfort and luxury I would certainly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is conveniently located, some 10 minutes from Tunxi airport. It is less than an hour drive from Huangshan Mountain. We did the trip to Huangshan Mountain in one day (left at 8:30 am, were back at 5 pm)

  • Liked — Quality of the rooms, restaurant
  • Disliked — The fact that the hotel was not finished yet (eg swimming pool), which is beyond the control of the hotel
