Hotel is brand new and feels like modern luxury resorts. Rooms were nicely designed with reasonable space and posh modern furnishings, the blankets were very fluffy and comfortable. The tea in the room is excellent. It was fairly empty in late November so it was very quiet. The main downside was how they charged for a lot of stuff you... More

Truly a 5 Star hotel set up and from Check in to a 2 night stay ... not a single issue. Very comfortable room and meals for lunch & dinner are of good standards taking consideration that the hotel is way upon the Mountain. Will come back again during my next visit .

Definitely the best choice up in the mountains. Nice and clean, staff also reasonably helpful. Prices are high though, especially coffee. And american coffe comes at a ridiculous 15$ per cup. The restaurant is not good, very tasteless food

This hotel is glossier that expected, especially given its location. We thought we were going to get a small pension but it's quite grand and glossy, like a proper hotel! The facilities are limited, there are no gyms or pools or anything fancy like that but why do you need to do extra exercise if you are exercising all day... More

Theres no tarmac road access to this hotel, and its quite a hike form the Cable Car station. You need to be decently fit to even get to its doorstep. But its quiet, clean, and has a great view. Its a amazing to think how they even built this place in the middle of the mountains. We saw porters carrying... More

I've booked directly with the hotel booking system and double confirmed with online chatting system with the hotel advisor. Guess what, when I arrived at the hotel, the front desk told me they found my booking 3 days later. I even received an after stay comment email and stated my stay is the exact date I booked. Disaster booking system.... More

Efficient and very polite front desk staff, bar tenders, restaurant managers and waiters! Most of them are young and eager to speak (practice) English with foreigners. Good quality and large quantities of breakfast of both Chinese and Western menus prepares us or the hard hiking each day! The room (with a balcony on the 2nd floor) is very clean and... More

After hiking for several hours up and down the hills in Huangshan, all I look for is a clean hotel with a hot shower and a nice bed. The Xihai hotel has both. It's clean and newly renovated. Of course it cannot be compared with the big brands like intercontinental. There are minor problems in the room like the handle... More

It is a government owned/managed hotel on the mountain. The newest and considered the best--designed for foreigners. All goods in the hotel (like other hotels) are carried up by porters who are paid by the weight of the goods carried! In context of the hotel ownership--it's a very nice hotel with good amenities. They offer warm jackets in every room... More

“Not worth paying for a "view" room, as it overlooks the sometimes noisy deck.”

“Front side for better views. Specify if you want a large window room. Higher up rooms are more quite though with tiny windows.”
