My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid March 2014. It is located inside a shopping malll. Keep in mind that there do not seem to be non-smoking room here, so ask them for one that does not smell too bad, we did. The corridor smells like food during meal time as the dinning room is located... More

We've stayed at several different hotels in China, and gotten used to different levels of comfort and service. Hence this review is with other chinese hotels in mind. Good about Bestel Xiamen: location close to the pier for ferry to Gulang Yu, good wi-fi, soft beds, large rooms, large bathrooms. Not so good: Rooms not cleaned properly, non-smoking room smells...

Bestel Hotel is conveniently located between Zhongshan Road and Siming West Road. You could shop and eat late into the night and enjoy both the bustle of night market and street foods as well as clean and hygienic restaurants. The hotel is more like a 3-star hotel, but the staff are very helpful and friendly. This is a rarity as... More

This is a reasonably good hotel with a good location. just a few steps out to xiamen's commercial district. It's also close to the ferry ride to gulangyu island. Glass restroom was quite a surprise but anyway there was a curtain. Food is reasonable. Few english speaking staff.

My Chinese friend found this hotel for us (and I fortunately agreed). There is nothing special with hotel itself, room is big enough, towels clean (even with holes), price is also higher than similar hotels in common Chinese cities (468.- per twin bed during mid-autumn festival). But what is VERY good: - breakfast buffet - surprisingly tasty, mostly Chinese style... More

great location- the small streets around are full of great clothing boutiques (lots for kids), and it's close to the main shopping street, the promenade, and the dock where you take the ferry to the beautiful Gulang yu island. and now, to the rooms. as a person who stayed at a lot of hotel rooms in China, from all kinds,...

The location is great, but the lobby of the hotel is not as pleasing. it is located inside a Mall. The ceiling of the mall near the hotel elevators is leaking with water, it might be cause by rain, even in the lobby some portion is leaking when it rains heavily. For the rooms are clean and beds and pillows... More

Central location near pedestrian streets and Gulangyu ferry. Layout was weird as reception is in the lobby of a mall but it was well sign posted and easy to find. Staff were professional but not very forthcoming with information. They seemed to like to pass the buck. Reception would refer us to the concierge and vice versa. Why even have... More
