It is a great choice for a night prior to ascending Mt. Huangshan, we got a clean basic room with three beds for RMB 130. The hiking seminar that the hotel held at 6pm in their restaurants were very informative but it was conducted in Mandarin. And make sure you bring their maps with you as I saw plenty of...

We picked Ala for the proximity to the bus station in Tankou. Arriving on the day before our reservation, they stored our bags for us, arranged a bus ticket to Hangzhou and gave us the most useful map that we found on Huangshan. The hotel has no English signage on the outside and the booking.com/google maps are completely inaccurate. Local...

This guest house is less than 10 minutes walk from where the buses go to Mount Huanghan. The rooms were immaculately clean, well designed, great quality beds, and provided an excellent nights sleep. They were also excellent value for money - only around 110 RMB per night - and much much nicer than the hotel we stayed in at the...

We were there for 2 nights during Dec 2013. We spent the first night there before going up the mountain; subsequently we left our luggage with them for one night and came back for another night at Ala before leaving Tangkou. The good part of Ala Hotel is that it is within 5 minutes walking distance from the bus drop...

The hotel is O.K. not a bad deal for the money. Good location, but a much better deal is available around the corner at Mr. Hu hotel. Mr. Hu is very nice, service oriented. He will pick you up at the bus stop, drive you to the Yellow Mountain bus stop, pick you up whenever you come down. He will...

If there was a 4.5, I would have picked that, but I don't feel it's quite 5 star, so I settled for 4. The best part of the hotel was the presentation on climbing Huangshan as well as the ability to leave the heavier bags with them for pick up upon our descent. This allowed us to bring up just...

I chose this hotel after reading so many good comments about it on the net; however my own experience was far from pleasant. I walk-in to the hotel without any reservation, the front desk (with a less welcoming manner) informed me that there were no rooms available, and when I decide to turn around, they said someone has just drop...

Ala Huangshan is a no-frills, budget-friendly hotel that like a sparrow, though small, is complete; well, almost. Room is clean but basic (not carpeted). Has amenities including hairdryer. At check-in, I was asked if I brought shampoo/soap; I understand they'll supply for a small fee if you hadn't. Bathroom could've been better designed; water from shower stall flows out resulting...

I booked this hotel despite concerns over the incredibly low price due to it being #1 on tripadvisor and also because of the help they provided in helping plan your mountain trip (since we weren't using a tour guide or part of a tour group). Overall it was exactly as past reviewers had described, the rooms very very basic (you...
