    Ivorll International Youth Hostel

    The only real hostel in Wuhan, Ivorll is a stylish choice, with a pleasing blue-and-white colour scheme and thoughtful design touches throughout. There are eight-bunk and four-bunk dorms, both with privacy curtains, and a stylish cafe and cocktail bar offer an easy escape from Wuhan's crowds. Although it's in Wuchang, it has a great location steps from the metro.

  • Lodging in Enshi

    Enshi More Mountain YHA

    This stylish hostel has an atmospheric location in Nü'er Cheng, as well as a nice cafe/bar. Beds are in four- or six-bed dorms, and there are also comfortable private rooms. It is far from the train and bus stations, though. Take bus 31 (¥2, one hour) from the train station to the last stop and then walk for 10 minutes.

  • Lodging in Yichang

    Sanmao Youth Hostel

    The selling point of this simple hostel is a great little outdoor terrace to chill on. Located on the 11th and 12th floors of an apartment building near the Three Gorges Tourist Centre, dorms here sleep four or six, and there's also a single room. Read the directions closely when you book as it's quite tricky to find.

  • Lodging in Wuhan


    Tomolo is a Wuhan brand known for style and panache. You'll enjoy the giant rooms with a sofa, coffee table and large bed, and the bathrooms feature stylish tiling and power showers. While rooms could use a refresh, you can't beat the online rates (from ¥200). Great location in the heart of Hankou, with plenty of street food at your doorstep.

  • Lodging in Wudang Shan

    Wudang International Youth Hostel

    English-speaking staff, good info on visiting the mountain and a nice cafe and bar on the ground floor – this hostel has more going for it than anywhere else in town. Rooms show some wear and beds are a bit hard, but overall they're comfortable and clean. It's a 10-minute walk west (down the hill) from the park entrance.

    Nányán Bīnguǎn

    This is our top pick for on-mountain accommodation. Rooms are in great shape and even have a hint of style, and there's a pleasant outdoor terrace overlooking the valley below. Even on busy weekends it doesn't seem to fill up. It's on the main plaza where the Nanyan bus drops you off.

  • Lodging in Jingzhou

    Jiuge Holiday Hotel

    Large, comfortable rooms with laminate flooring and mosaic-tiled bathrooms make the Holiday a great choice inside the city walls. It's located about 200m past the New East Gate. Online rates fall as low as ¥150; walk-ins pay ¥238. Buses 15 and 21 run here from the train station.

  • Lodging in Wuhan

    Dorsett Wuhan

    With a handy location in the heart of Hankou, the Dorsett is an attentive and efficient four-star hotel. Rooms are large, some with leather furniture and rainforest showers, though not all have windows. There's a Hong Kong–style cafe, small gym and staff that speak some English.

  • Lodging in Wuhan

    Shangri-La Hotel

    One of Wuhan's top international hotels, the Shangri-La gets good marks for service and its convenient Hankou location. Room design is a bit dated (some renovations were taking place during our last visit), but the comfort level meets expectations.

  • Lodging in Yichang

    Ramada Yichang Hotel

    Rooms here won't win any awards for style, but they're more than comfortable and generally a great deal. Staff can help book cruises and onward travel, though their English is limited.

  • Lodging in Jingzhou

    Oyo Hotel

    A reliable Chinese chain hotel, Oyo has decent, inexpensive rooms and a good location not far from the East Gate.

  • Lodging in Wuhan

    Qiaohe Hostel

    A ramshackle hostel in an old lane-house with attached cafe, this welcoming place has a certain dilapidated charm. If you're looking for a cheap bunk in a great location, it's a decent option. There is one eight-bunk dorm, one four-bunk all-female dorm, plus a windowless double (the latter is not a great deal).

  • Lodging in Wuhan

    Zhonghui Hotel

    There are well-kept rooms with clean bathrooms at this Wuchang three-star choice. The cheapest rooms are smaller and have no windows, but are fine enough, and you’ll have fun getting to them in the exterior brass lift. Rates include breakfast. Discounts bring prices down to ¥240.

  • Lodging in Wudang Shan

    Xuányuè Fàndiàn

    Although it's not much to look at, this midrange hotel has a pleasant location on a pedestrian street in town. It’s on the corner of Yuxu Lu and Taihe Zhonglu and is accessed through an entryway that leads to an inner courtyard. Expect discounts to bring room rates down to ¥200.

  • Lodging in Enshi

    Super 8 Hotel

    The well-maintained modern rooms here can be booked online for as little as ¥100. It's across the street from the railway station, on the right side of the road in a large tower, just next to an apartment block complex whose streets turn into a lively night market each evening.

  • Lodging in Wuhan

    Marco Polo

    The Marco Polo may not be the top luxury hotel in Wuhan, but it does enjoy sweeping river views and is walking distance from the tree-lined former concession area. Floral wallpaper, a muted colour scheme and deep soaker tubs make for a relaxing retreat from the city.

  • Lodging in Yichang

    Yiling Hotel

    This place has tired rooms with laminated wood flooring, but it's in a good location close to the river and opposite a number of restaurants, bars and cafes. Discounts drop prices down to around ¥220. A taxi will cost about ¥35 from the east train station.

  • Lodging in Shennongjia

    Wuyue Scenic Area Hotel

    This well-maintained hotel with tasteful rooms and a lovely location is 1.5km south of central Muyu. It's a good base for exploring the region, though as there are no taxis in these parts, you'll need to hoof it to and from town.

  • Lodging in Wudang Shan

    Jianguo Hotel

    The Jianguo is a large luxury hotel at the foot of Wudang Shan and set within the tourist complex. Rooms have outdoor terraces and are comfortable enough, though it seems overpriced for what you get. Limited English.

  • Lodging in Wudang Shan

    Taichi Hotel

    This quality hotel on the mountain has fabulous mountain views. Be careful you don't wind up in a room without a window, though. It’s 200m downhill from the bus drop-off point at Nanyan.
