I visited this hotel as part of a tour. The hotel is beautiful. The bathroom in my room was like a bowling alley. It was very long. The room was wonderful. Cannot comment on location as I had organised transport.

Incredibly huge bathroom , but keep the blinds down as our view was of a building site with all the bathroom fittings in a heap on the ground . Very clean . Good breakfast , plenty of variety there . Location is good .

Luxurious hotel with an amazing bathroom. When we first got to our room we had problems with the airconditioning and hot water but these were soon fixed. Great location opposite the canals. Breakfast is tailored to the Asian market, which was a bit disappointing. Our room was large and clean.

This hotel was only a stopover between Beijing and Shanghai and thank god for that. When we first arrived there was a cleaning woman arguing with her husband in the foyer, Great first impression. Our rooms had no air-conditioning and it was like sleeping in a hot sauna. The room smelled of cigarettes. When I rang to find out if... More

The decor and furnishing of the hotel look luxury with wood trimming at the right places. The rooms are reasonable sized and things are ok. I heard some people are complaining of the air-conditioning unit which keeps the temperature too high; my room is ok. The best part is to take a walk just outside of the hotel in the... More

The location is good, overseeing the ancient canal. Opposite there is a local market selling almost everything but the qualities are not guaranteed. On the front left across the street, there is a big underground shopping centre with a supermarket. Inside the hotel, there is a jewelry store near the entrance which shows a sign of bankruptcy for years. I... More

Spent 1 night here on a group tour. I was very excited upon arrival to find that we had an Executive room located on 24th floor. I was really looking forward to looking out the window to what I thought would be a lovely view. I rushed to the window to see that we looked out to a wall about... More

While this hotel certainly does not look new, I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Braim Canal Hotel in Hangzhou. Stayed here while touring China last year. It is located in the city, but it seems like a little bit away from the hubbub. Stayed at six hotels in China and I found this one to be my... More

The Braim Canal Hotel in Hangzhou was comfortable, well maintained, and clean and contained all the amenities needed for travelers. The breakfast offerings were standard Chinese and Western fare. As our stay was only one night with a tour group, we did not get the opportunity to explore the hotel vicinity. I would definitely recommend this hotel. West Lake is... More

We stayed here for 1 night and that's enough. We woke up at 4am because the room temperature was at 29. Tried to adjust it but it didn't work... The shower handle is very hard to use, from cold to hot only have 4 levels, so you probably won't get the water temp that you are comfortable with, either too... More
