Close to the former residence of Chairman Mao, the Shaoshan Hotel (Shaoshan Binguan) is a garden-style hotel located in the mountainous Shaofeng Scenic Area. The hotel’s exterior and interior are designed in keeping with the traditional Chinese concept of fengshui, and the hotel blends with the natural surroundings. This Shaoshan hotel’s rooms come equipped with IDD phones, broadband Internet access, flat screen TVs and other comfortable modern amenities. Diners can enjoy a range of regional Chinese dishes in the on-site restaurant or relax in the traditional tea house. Well-equipped to cater to the needs of business guests, there are 12 conference rooms, a business center and services such as car rental, fax/copy and ticket reservation. Those who like to stay in shape when on vacation can go for a workout in the gym, have a game of basketball, or take a swim in the local river as the Chairman himself often did.
