Honestly speaking, the condition of the accommodation on Mount Huashan is very basic and poor, compared with the standard of Yellow Mountain, Mount Emei or Mount Tai, which is understandable because it is impossible to establish a big 3 stars, 4 stars or 5 stars hotel on the mountain where fours sides are precipitous cliffs. There is no highway but only stone steps to get to the top of the mountain. Currently there are several hotels (actually guest houses) on the mountain, providing basic room facilities, food and drink. Private bathroom and shower are not available in all hotels on the mountain. Most of the rooms are small dorm which can accommodate around 8~16 people. Only a few of the rooms are 2 beds rooms, 3 beds rooms and 4 beds rooms. If you really mind poor bedding facilities and cleanness, we suggest you make the trip to Huashan in a day, which is possible if you start your tour early. However, if you want to enjoy sunset and sunrise, and don’t mind the poor accommodation and expensive cost, you can stay a night on the mountain. Below are the major hotels on the mountain.Huashan Hotels Location Maps
