The location comes as a surprise when our vehicle park at the entrance of a deserted tourist shopping complex. The hotel itself is not far from the gate, but we need to carry our baggages ourselves to get there. Good and clean rooms. Nice and quiet for a good night rest. Facilities are basic, but you get what you pay for. Advantage : The Emei Cultural Show is in the same complex so just a walking distance. Very convenient. Disadvantage : Breakfast is so-so, and they only start serving by 7.30am so you by the time you reach the Emei Bus station to go to the mountain, you will find long queues already there.

My friend and I had a twin room which was very large and nicely decorated. The staff do not speak English, but they are patient with broken Chinese. They are friendly and ready to help. The rooms are very clean and offer a good amount of amenities and fast wireless internet in the rooms. The hotel is next to some good places to eat and offers some good Sichuan snack food. It is also next to a large temple and many things to see. They offer a breakfast and it is alright, a typical Chinese breakfast food. Not terrible, just not the best breakfast. We ate, enjoyed it and carried on with our journey to leshan mountain.

We stayed at the Upper Zen Hotel in Emei City while visiting Emeishan and Leshan, for 3 nights. Approx 10 minute taxi ride to Baguo village (park entrance for Mount Emei). Stayed in the business double room, breakfast inclusive. Location: approximately 30 min walk from the bus station, recommend taking a taxi. Very close to Dafo Temple, which is very impressive. It is a new-ish hotel in a new development which is very impressive looking, but mostly not open yet and fairly deserted both day and night while we were there! Poorly signed- if you find the elephant city statue, it's behind this (on your right). Accessibility: hotel has stairs and a lift. Note, the hotel wouldn't book us a taxi as they said they were unable to phone taxis in Emei City, so to get a taxi meant walking out to the main roads (about 400m) and trying to hail a cab, which can be variably difficult in Emei City. Reception: minimal English, generally unfriendly (can be quite common in Chinese hotels); check-in mostly ok though. Rooms: pros - quiet, very spacious, AC, wi-fi. Newish rooms with complementary water. Cons - only moderately clean (common for Chinese hotels also); lots of mould in the shower. Bed awfully uncomfortable - springs sticking into us! Some of the room lights not working. No safe. Fridge unplugged (?to save electricity); we were able to plug it in and get it working by moving some furniture. Breakfast: mostly Asian-style. Although breakfast is meant to start from 7am, if the hotel is quiet they will only bother to get things out when people come down. Some toast and eggs / meat (?spam) brought to our table along with watermelon and coffee. They were very kind to give us each take-away breakfasts which were made up for us on the day we left at 6am to climb the mountain. Overall: ok hotel with pros and cons, would probably stay again if the rest of the new development was open, as it will likely be a lot more busy and fun area.

Stayed at the Upper Zen (or ShangShe in pinyin mandarin) hotel based on the earlier positive reviews here. Was not disappointed. It was a nice and relatively new modern hotel which is located on the edge of the Dafuo Temple in Emeishan town. To be clear, it is not staying in a monastery. (Sometimes these can be really spartan). Upper Zen is a modern boutique hotel. Small efficient front desk, breakfast restaurant and nicely appointed rooms. Dark wood and warm lighting for a quiet and serene ambiance befitting the location. Breakfast was included in our rate (via ctrip.com). We had to leave early on the last morning to head up emeishan and their restaurant would not have been open. They were most accommodating and packed a simple takeaway bag for us the night before. Since it is located near temple grounds, it is great for strolling around. Within 5-10 mins, there is a traditional chinese theatre, walking street and other attractions. If you leave the grounds in the other direction across the bridge, there is a large circular public park where the locals gather for the evening activities. Food is within a 5-10 min walk away. The region is a new development which means the hustle and bustle typical of chinese cities has not quite arrived. Peaceful and desirable in my book. don't expect KTV lounges and massage parlours nearby. Instead, look forward to a calm and collected family environment.
