Rooms were fine, but the problem is the staff and reception hardly speak any English. Location is bad, very grey and far away from everything, you will always need a taxi to get away (if you can get one, as nobody speaks English). I would definitely not recommend it to foreigners, I would look for a nice hotel close to... More

We visited this hotel in September 2014. I was staying with friends, and when she arrived, it felt great. In the lobby, there is a small café which sells delicious pastries and desserts, however, they are a bit expensive. A tip for new travelers: you need to find a way to get breakfast on your own; the breakfast isn't very... More

Upon arrival we saw a nice lobby, but our room had a dirty and torn carpet and a chair in similar situation, it smelled from cigarettes smoke, so we asked to change to non smoking room. This time we received a smaller room, with suitcase stand that collapsed upon putting my suitcase on it, I got angry and asked to... More

I normally stay in the budget hotels when I visit Hangzhou, this time I stepped it up a star by going to the Culture Plaza Hotel. First impression was "Wow, that is the biggest bed I have ever seen!" Great room, clean and big. Staff was very helpful and spoken English. My only problem was with the location, you need... More

The hotel is owned by the adjoining bookstore so every room has it's own library and some of them are in English. The rooms are very 'western business' though ours and the bathroom were BIG. On the big theme we had the biggest hotel bed we have ever seen - you could put 4 pillows across the bed and still... More

Stayed here for a three night stay in Hangzhou. It is a simple 4 star hotel in an okay location about a 30 min walk from the West Lake. I wish now i'd stayed somewhere a bit closer but I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. The staff spoke good English when I checked in. I am pleased... More

This was one of the best hotels that I stayed in in China. The staff in general could understand English. Room service was fast and efficient. Hotel is situated within walking distance of various shops and tourist attractions. BBC World Service available on TV. They really put in an effort to accommodate all tastes during breakfast.

Great hotel a 10 mon bus ride from the West Lake. You won't get any better than this place for the great price as I found out in Shanghai. Staff are very friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable - will definitely return

This superior and extremely comfortable 21 storey, 174 room hotel is situated on a main thoroughfare 5 km or a 25 yuan (US$4) taxi journey from the famous West Lake. In the bar/coffee shop on the reception level (floor 2) delicious pastries are for sale. Guest rooms are generously large, with down pillows, tea & coffee making facilities and even... More
