TravelPod Member ReviewsShilin Hotel Huangshan
Our guide recommended Shilin over Paiyonlou as we are told the rooms are larger and cleaner. Shilin was a comfortable stay on the mountain. The double room was very small so you might consider opting for the twin room which is slightly larger and has a small balcony.
Zero English. Meals were OK but nothing special.

... In the distance the cloud settled around the peaks so it looked like they were poking out of a big sea of milk. It was well worth the early start! After breakfast, we gather our backpacks, meet Ada and start the walk back to the cable car. It's still a lot of steps and there are a lot of people but we are going in the opposite direction to most. It's going to be a cool miserable day at the top so we are very ...
It's not too early a start to the day which is great and as I get ready for the tour I find out that that I won't be the only non Chinese person on it which is different. I meet a guy called Gilles from Amsterdam and a lady called Aofie from Ireland. We're all very excited especially the other two as they've been stuck in the town for 2 days waiting for the weather to clear so that they could hike ...
