To be fair, I chose this hotel on price alone. It's located next to a major freeway interchange, but 1 that's not close to either CBD or to the famous West Lake. I ended up taking taxis everywhere. Even with a confirmed, pre-paid reservation, you'd think that checking in with an American credit card was like offering to pay with... More

The hotel is comfortable enough. Meets all the requirements of a 4 star hotel. More pro-active help with my luggage will be appreciated. The bathroom has a see through wall, with blinds that you can roll down for privacy. Roll up and watch TV in the bathtub :) There is not much to do in the vicinity as others said.... More

I stayed during May. It is a nice hotel and staff friendly but there's nothing around. If you don't care fod location it is ok. But If you want fun and good restaurant you should stay by West Lake area.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night in April 2014. The room was spacious and clean. Everything worked well and there was lots of hot water to soak in the tub. The separate glass shower was a nice touch. The bed provided a comfortable sleep. In room safe was handy and they offered smoking rooms. The breakfast buffet was... More

Just stay a night at here after visited Hangzhou Songcheng. It's a great hotel,more comfortable than the hotel that I stayed in Shanghai.Come with 2 welcome drinks (soft drink) and wet towels in the refrigerator.The room is big.I like the pillow so much as it is very soft.Recommended "The Romance of Songcheng,Hangzhou" show.I'm so amused with the show.Good Job!

I usually stay at the IC but chose Crowne Plaza due to proximity to my meeting venue. The location isn't great and about 25-30 mins drive to the West Lake during rush hour. Didn't see much happening around in the evening either. Checking in was bad . . Even compared Chinese standard. The girl at the reception did not even... More

I travel frequently to Hangzhou on business and this is located quite near to the factory I visit. The location is a little out of the town centre but cabs are cheap and plentiful. Great value at £70 a night for a huge suite! Bar is a bit clinical and no draft beer, breakfast is a huge eclectic buffet! Yup... More

Hotel is ok for one or two nights. The hotel is getting old and the rooms are in need of a refreshment. The staff is very kind and helpful. Breakfast is ok but nothing special. I can and will probably stay here again. And a bit far from town, but just 20 minute walk to a food street/market.

Hotel located a distance away from town and facing flyovers. Maybe noisy if rooms facing the flyovers. Tourist attractions are far away. Room given was nice and big with comfortable bed. However, breakfast area a bit disorganised where guests are not taken to available table. This happened when two different guests argued that a specific table was theirs, and each... More
