really a good hotel to stay if you visit to Xiamen, especially for the people who are plan to shopping! The hotel is located at the central of the city, in type of shop lot, inside a shopping mall . The lobby of the hotel is simple only, just situated inside the entrance of the shopping mall, you won't realize... More

The Xiamen Bestel Hotel is located right in the most happening place in Xiamen, the Zhongshan Road Walking Street. Around 30 minutes to/from the airport by taxi.(around CNY 50). It is located inside a large shopping mall. The area is a food and shopping haven for locals & tourists alike. The famed Taiwan Snack Street is just a few steps... More

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.

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
