No water and towels provided in the gym. Size of the room is ok but toilet is small. Toiletries like toothbrush, shaver, hair dryer, shampoo and bath gel provided. Wifi... More

Proximity to West Lake, convenient access to good restaurants, shopping, transportation and a nice level of comfort guided my search for a hotel in Hangzhou for my 3 nights stay there. This hotel was my top choice and it delivered on every criteria and more. The renowned restaurant- Grandma's Place is 10 to 15 minutes leisurely paced walk away, as... More

Alas, the Friendship Hotel has been eclipsed by the Hyatt Regency and Four Seasons in Hangzhou. For many years, the Friendship Hotel was the place to stay, with excellent staff and a wonderful revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel affording magnificent views over WestLake and the city of Hangzhou. And, only a few blocks walk to Westlake and... More

This hotel was really close to the famous Westlake, which I really would recommend to everybody travelling to Hangzhou. Unfortunatelly the mist is so dense in Hangzhou, that you slowly lose orientation while walking around it. The hotel had really awesome toilets - high tech ;) The bath was a little small, but ok anyway if you spend all the... More
