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.
