4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. The rooms are luxurious...particularly the bathrooms. Breakfast buffet is good but not great. The only really thing I didn't care for was that it always seems I am the only person staying in the hotel. The lobby, bars and restaurants in the hotel are all devoid of patrons.

My wife and I stayed here to visit her brother back in January 2013. I could not believe the price of the room we received. The view was fantastic and service was excellent. The buffet on the top floor was tasty and affordable. If anyone would like a 4-5 star quality hotel in the Hangzhou area, please do stay here... More

This is a great hotel after the stay in the Relax Hotel. Obviously more costly too. The Junior suite is very spacious and I then moved to their deluxe room which was small but well appointed and comfortable. If you arrive by high speed train, the station is a 100m away. The breakfast is good and the buffet dinner has... More

When you first walk in there is a feeling of fanciness with all the marlble and the fountain - although a slightly dated look! Check-in was a shambles and took forever as there were about 20 English people checking in and no one spoke English at check-in, which was confusing for everyone. After checking in I was impressed with the... More

Hotel is quite removed from the lake which isn't a huge issue as long as you can get a taxi from the lake to take you back. It is walkable (around 30 mins) if you want to try as we did after failing to hail any. Room was quite small though very well appointed and bathroom was excellent. Room service... More

I stayed here at the end of business trip to hangzhou as it was close to the train station. Never again. A lot of building works going on around the hotel, so it was very noisy. View from the 33 restaurant and bar are great. I arrived for breakfast at 10.02am, breakfast was still out as people were eating, but... More

Popped in for coffee prior to catching train to Shanghai and got stung for 334 yuan for three cups of very ordinary latte in the foyer coffee shop, that is about $A13 per cup. It pays to check the price before ordering. We were not guests at the hotel and the staff were uncompromising in their position.

Yes it is not a fantasy it real world in a swarm of people in crowded street of china.Quiet place for relaxing in heaven.A trip to ancient china but in a modern life style.You can not imagine that a hidden heaven waiting for you.Be sure that you will find every thing that you looking for is available in one place.

Overblown design, but apart from that, enormous rooms, clean, friendly service. Locatiowise more suited for the business traveller (not at the West Lake but in walking distance from the railway station). The bathroom is gigantic and suprises with attention to hygiene details like the wall-hung toilet rather than the floor standing clunckers with their always disgusting and uncleanable rims. All...
