I didn't enjoy my stay here. Far too large and impersonal to be pleasant. The dining room was like a large food hall and it was difficult to get service. The room was large enough but not especially clean...probably because it liked shabby. We were with a group so it was possibly a cheap option but did not compare with... More

This hotel is well located - 15 minutes walking from the lake. Rooms and beds are clean although the carpet would need changing and paintings would need to be refreshed. It is good value for money. The restaurant only offers Chinese options and I would suggest to have breakfast outside. Walls are quite thin and you wouldn't want lousy neighbours... More

I was recommended West lake golden plaza by the colleague i was to meet and do business with. Its central (of course depends on where your area work lies) and that a plus plus.... More

For the low cost by Western standards, this hotel offers a clean, comfortable room in Hangzhou. As others have mentioned, it is a 15-minute walk from West Lake. If you're adventurous, there are plenty of local restaurants and convenience stores nearby. Check-in and out was easy but we had to leave a deposit of 2x our room rate for a... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. It is a standard business hotel with Western style interior. The furnishing was in a good condition and the cleaning was actually much than the average for Chinese hotels (which can be quite appalling). We were a little surprised at first by the size of the room deposit, as we were only... More

The hotel is in a great location which is just about 15 min walking to the city center. And about 20-30min walking (if I had got the right direction) to hte most properous street - Qinghefang. Because I was a buget visitor so I thought walking in a distance to the street was fine. The view from the room was... More

Stood there just for one night, good place, friendly staff and elegant room. We were lucky to stay in a corner room, so with all curtains opened we could see the town at our feet, great sensation.

Very spacious and comfortable room, good location in the center, but not 'closed' to the lake. Friendly staff with poor English skills. Tasty food in the restaurant, but interior and waiters are so messy (extremely dirty clothes, nails...), that you don't want to think how the kitchen looks like. However no food poisoned even if eating there two lunches (only... More

We knew this hotel wasn't near the lake, but thought there's be more eating options "in town" than by the lake - turns out that probably wasn't a good assumption! In my mind I'd imagined that there'd just be a handful of overpriced tourist trap restaurants near the lake, which was also not a correct. In hindsight, I'd probably stay... More
