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

I stayed for 1 night, for tourism. I was met in reception by a very helpful European member of the hotel staff. She assisted me through check in and was attentive and helpful. She spoke very good English. She was able to assist me with directions and restaurant recommendations. It made a big difference to my stay. The hotel is... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the low price (600 RNB, not including breakfast) as the room was pleasant, the air conditioning worked well and the staff were friendly. Wifi was unstable - worked well one day, not at all the next. The big attraction is the revolving rooftop restaurant with a fabuluous view of the West Lake and the town.... More

I was here for 2 nights on a business trip. Stayed in a corner room (Rm 412) and the shape of the room was odd and small. Besides that, everything else was fine. It was also located within walking distance to West Lake and to many shopping complexes in the area. Breakfast was served in a revolving restaurant on the... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 5 years and it remains my first choice for a hotel in Hangzhou. Centrally located it is an easy walk down to the lake, has many features nearby, and is an easy taxi ride to those further away. The rooms are smaller than some other hotels, but I have... More

Solo traveller, Dec 2014, 5 nights, reserved from Booking.com. Had a friend with me for 3 nights, in separate rooms. The hotel is excellent, room service was full of amenities. I really appreciated having a mobile phone in my room, which I took with me a few times (for some reasons, my Irish phone was not working in China), and... More

As a family we booked two adjoining rooms in the Friendship Hotel. We had no issues with language as one of my family speaks some Mandarin. Having said that, some of the staff greeted me in English. The rooms we had were allocated were small but spotlessly clean and well appointed. There was a note in the room indicating the... More

I stayed here for one night - principally to see the West Lake - and it certainly wasn't the fault of the hotel that it never stopped raining for 2 days. I had a lake-facing room on the 8th floor - could see glimpses of the lake between buildings - not really high enough. I felt I paid a little... More
