Pod Inn hotel is very suitable for those who want to have a cheap trip in vacations. It has a good location near West Lake while the pricing of which is comparatively cheap, so it attracts many students and office workers. Even though the room of the hotel is not as large and luxury as five-star hotel’s, it’s more cozy... More

Strategic location, just around Xihu area, but a bit off the main road. Room is super super small, but hey it's okay as I'm just single traveller. The room is geared toward young people, with LCD TV inside. However, receptionist is not speaking English at all ! Quite difficult to ask information around Hangzhou area

The hotel atmosphere is very trendy and geared toward a younger clientele, and aside from the linoleum tiles in my room starting to peel up, the stay was uniformly positive. A great... More
