If you easily suffer from cuteness overload, this place is not for you. Its cute panda theme is ubiquitous and relentless: panda paintings, panda shaped beds, panda stuffed toys, panda soap dispensers. Other than the panda-inspired décor, it’s an adequate, functional small hotel. The rooms aren't exactly luxurious, being entirely tiled (no carpets), with a bedside table only on one side (at least in our room) of a very firm queen-size bed. The bathroom was okay, air conditioning worked well, and wifi was fast. If you’re just looking for something decent to spend the night, don’t need luxury and don’t mind being accosted by pandas in all shapes, forms, and instantiations at every turn, it’s a good and very reasonably priced choice (we paid USD 45 per night). The location is convenient to the high-speed rail Emeishan station, about a 10 minute walk, but not much else. No shops around, though an excellent and cheap courtyard restaurant (Pu Yuan) is just outside the front door. For coffee and a night cap we went to Anantara, a five-star resort about a 15-minute walk away. Note that the breakfast at Panda Inn is entirely geared towards Chinese, there are no Western options, not even toast, so either you need to love congee or bring provisions. If you must spend the night near Mt Emei, this is a reasonable option, but if I were ever to come back, I’d probably do a day trip from Chengdu.

The Panda Inn certainly looks very cool upon arriving--there are paintings of pandas in various settings throughout all the hallways. All the decor has to do with pandas: the mugs, the soap dispensers, there's even a soft panda toy on the bed waiting for you. It's certainly very unique, as much as it is bizarre. In terms of comfort and accommodations, this hotel really was not up to snuff and I was quite surprised to see such a high ranking on TripAdvisor upon our return. The beds are essentially springs with a piece of cardboard thrown on top and are incredibly uncomfortable. The bathroom was clean for the most part but when I tried to use the soap dispenser, rust came out. Also, the shower door did not shut properly, forcing me to flood the bathroom. It was unclear how the heating system worked and we were incredibly chilly at night under thin blankets, particularly when it was barely above freezing outside the room. Finally, the setup of the hotel is very strange--check-in and breakfast are in a hotel-like building, whereas our rooms were a short drive away in what appeared to be a deserted apartment complex. We truly had the feeling that we were the only people for miles.

This place is all about Pandas. There are Panda furniture, linen, cups, everything. Lovely building with delightful nooks and crannies. We stayed only one night. There was no water, so no dinner or any other service for that matter. It is far from the city/restaurants. We walked- about 45 minutes, but very pleasant, as there is a new park nearby, with a lake, and just lovely to spend time in. It is a brand new building. Good lighting, everything in working order, other than the temporary water problem. Clean, wi-fi in the rooms. Breakfast was Chinese, no western options. Compared to other '4 star' hotels we stayed in during this trip, this was luxury.

Panda Inn Emeishan was opened in May. It is now about 5months since teh opening. It is a quain inn renovated from old traditional Chinese gueshouse. The idea of the panda Inn is well thought off/. Rooms were nicely decorated with Panda memorabilia.. Each room has aPanda name and where he or she is born. The rooms are very clean and nicely renovated. Now the part of the service- Staff speaks very little or no English. Phone services tot eh rooms are only within the Inn of Hotel. If you have incoming all and need to talk\to someone you hae to go to the lobby of another building and take your phone call. Breakfast buffet consist only of Chinese Sichuan type food. No toast ot bread or tea or coffee are serve. This make it difficult for westerners to visit the Inn. it does have a cute bar where they have a2 man band that evening celebrating Mid Autumn festival. Everyone was having fun. Most of the guests are Local Chinese. We were the only 8 local Americans that evening. Recommend for those who are into Pandas as it is a quaint boutique. it has potential for foreigners if they work on the Reception and the meals . Menu written only in Chinese. So difficult to order. Teh location is at least 20-30mins from teh town. So if you want dinner you need to find a cab wi=hich can be a challenge.

During my Chengdu trip in Aug, I travelled to Emeishan specially to stay in this Panda Inn for 1 night as I love Panda. I called the Hotel when I arrived at the Emeishan Bus Station and they picked me up free of charge. Was allocated the luxurious and huge buddhism theme room with a King size bed. Aircon and Wifi signal were very strong in the room too. Realised that the price was so much cheaper when I called the hotel to book directly (http://www.panda-inn.cn/) instead of booking through Agoda. I paid only CNY590 for the room as compared to CNY818 if book via Agoda. Do be aware that they do not accept international credit card and there's a need to give a CNY200 cash deposit even though i hadalready made full payment. Guess it's a security measure just in case the cute panda stuff in the room went missing. Had my meal in 1 of the 3 Panda theme dining room - lthe Panda set meal was delicious. The only disappointment I had was the breakfast which is only a bowl of plain noodle wtih some vegetable and a fried egg but it's quite a standard breakfast in Chengdu. Was provided the free transfer back to Emeishan Bus Station upon check-out. Overall, I am very satisfied with the hotel room and will definitely stay longer on my next trip.
