Perfect rooms all with sea-view on beautiful Gulangyu island. Their new Thai restaurant "Red Thai" is no doubt the best place to eat genuine delicious Thai food. Staff is correct and helpful. Executive floor has great snacks and is very relaxing.

It's a 5 star hotel, and is very good. The sea views are lovely, even from the lower floors. The rooms are becoming a little dated, and the pool was not as gorgeous as the photo. The gym was standard. No sauna. The Chinese breakfast had good options. The western breakfast was so so. The lobby is nice. Service was... More

The hotel is always busy, a lot of guests, but the staffs are always helpful. The room (with sea / lake view) is good, comfortable and big. The washroom is not so new, but in acceptable condition. The breakfast is .. you can skip it and go to the nearby street for something nicer.

I try to update my reviews of this location once a year. There have been a number of improvements at SIH since my last stay. Many rooms have been upgraded and redecorated ... including some of the VIP suites on the higher levels. A new THAI themed restaurant has opened in early December. The reviewer had a chance to sample... More

It is one of the best hotels we stayed with our children. Hotel is conveniently located in front of Gulangyu island, 5 min walks to Zhongshan Road and 3 clicks away from Xiamen University and South Putuo Temple. During our stay, we walked or took the bus, whose stops are just in front of the hotel. We booked a family... More

Lovely Hotel with a beautiful view across to Gulang island. We had a high floor facing the island. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Breakfast offered a large selection and even a Western menu that the waiters where offering in case you didn't like anything else. The coffee from the machine was a welcome break from the normal Chinese offering.... More

The hotel is located near to Zhongshan Lu where there are many shopping centers, snack shops and restaurants. It's not that far to 2 of the main sights (Nanputuo Temple and Xiamen Uni). Less than 15 rmb taxi fare. A taxi to/from the airport costs around 40-60 rmb (depending on the traffic). It is just opposite Gulangyu Island so request... More
