“Beautiful ground. Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

This hotel is in the scenic area and has a beautiful ground.
The room is comfortable and does not smell cigarettes (a big relief).

The coffee at the breakfast is as bad as most in Chinese hotels.
And finding decent coffee at Wuyishan is hard. So bring your own
if you are a coffeeholic like me.

The moment you walk into this hotel and the hotel grounds, you know you're in a world-class hotel. I took many pictures of the grounds alone and the location of the hotel is nestled within the mountains providing many awe-inspiring views.

However the visit is let down by the staff. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and hostels in China, from 2-star Business style all the way through to ones like this, where world leaders have stayed. The staff here are efficient and capable but not very good on the customer service front. They give you what you ask for, if you can speak Chinese, and nothing more. They, like others have mentioned, have no information on tours or any information whatsoever for that matter on anything.

Luckily for me I do speak Chinese and I was able to not starve to death, otherwise I wouldn't have known even where to go for my included breakfasts. The breakfast itself wasn't too bad, just the average Chinese style breakfast really.

If you want a comfortable room, with great views and interesting hotel grounds, then this is the best that Wuyishan has to offer. Just be warned that if you don't speak Chinese, you might have a little trouble. I wouldn't mind so much if this were a 2 star business hotel as that is what you expect but at a world-class 4 or 5 star hotel, which has had many foriegn dignatories stay, you'd expect that they would have at least basic English skills. I've stayed in backpacker hostels in smaller cities in China that had staff who could speak English.. so why not here? Not even the basic level of English..

Room Tip: Make sure you can speak Chinese and plan all your tours yourself.

Villa is situated in a very beautiful place. If you're a nature lover - this place for you. Room was quite simple, but actually I didn't stay in hotel a lot of time - because so many interesting places around.
As for me - I can't say food in the hotel was amazing. Maybe I'm not a big fun of China cusine...but I prefer to eat out of the hotel.
Staff on the reception speak English quite well, but other staff is not very good in it.
Generally place is calm and quite.

After reading numerous positive reviews on trip advisor I decided to stay at this hotel even though it is a little expensive. The hotel looks very give and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were not knowledgeable about the services available. Also the facilities, such as swimming pool, train station pickup and room service are no longer available. The breakfast was included in the price but if you don't like cold soggy Chinese breakfasts don't even bother getting up for it. There was no information available in English or Chinese about things to do and places to go in Wuyishan. And finding your way around is not easy without a map or a tour guide. I can only imagine if you can't speak Chinese it would be almost impossible. This hotel is not worth the money at all.

My family stayed at the Wuyi Villa November 2011. Having read all the prior reviews we are anticipating 4 star hotel with a 1 star rating. My husband even wanted to bring instant noodles just in case we starve !! Much to our relief ... the place is very good. Clean well maintained and friendly staff. It is a rather old hotel ... but there is a quaintness about it. Unlike a lot of chinese hotels ... the rooms do not smell of stale ciggies. When it comes to food ... foreigners will need directions from the locals. Ask ..there are plenty of good food around.

The quality of the rooms and of the restaurant is very good. The reception can handle English and the restaurant has an English menu. There is no western breakfast, however. The hotel is on a very nice location, although the road nearby makes some noise. It is inside the park and It is close to a bus stop, but the buses in the park have no fixed routes. So you have to negotiate with the coordinator at the stop and she does not speak English. There is also no english map with bus stops, so you are advised (forced) to take a guide.
No restaurants, shops or anything else around the hotel. The rooms are on various levels, so there are some steps to be taken sometimes. The show on the opposite bank of the hotel is very good.
It remains a typical chinese hotel though: hard beds, very limited terrace, no bar or swimming pool.

I was very disappointed with the roomservice. Available only on limited time ! very weird..!

When I ordered the breakfast to be delivered to the room.. they told me there was no breakfast service to the room. But I told me there is no room service for breakfast. But I told her it is shown in the hotel room service menu. She said she will call back

When she call back after 5 minutes, she told me that only bread with butter and jam will be served, I told them the room service menu show that full set of breakfast include bacon and omellete and coffee. She said she will call back.

When she call back 10 minutes later, she said there there will be a room service charge of 35 renmin pi

I was so frustrated with the level of room service and told her forget about it..!!

This is the level of service you would expect in a 4 star hotel !!
