We spent 2 hours looking for the hotel because a) Hotels.com map was wrong, b) no taxi driver we asked knows the hotel, c) people who work in shops/restaurants in the vicinity don't know the hotel d) name of the hotel is incorrect - I.e no mention of "Yiliang Hotel" anywhere. Sign = Narada Boutique Hotel, not Yiliang Hotel. Hotel... More

Cozy, Clean, Nice Thai themed interiors. Good location if the trip is for business as it's situated at the middle of the business district of HangZhou. A bit but not that far from the tourist destinations (West Lake). But there's a seafood market/restaurant/food court in the vicinity and some interesting street food stalls that pop up during the night nearby.... More

Parking area is limited, not a big space. Location is surrounded by many office buildings. There are some restaurants around the the hotel, you can reach them by walking. Breakfast menu is fine but many menus were not completed by the names, so you just guess while cant get info from staffs since they cant speak english.

A very nice hotel and really clean. It helps that the staff speaks decent English. It is however very far from downtown. Otherwise it is a place worth staying at.

It 's a nice hotel. However, it 's a bit far from downtown. You can walk down to Tianmushan Road and take a bus to downtown easily. I had been staying here for 3 days. I think It 's worthwhile staying here.

I was traveling to Hangzhou for a holiday and just wanted a clean hotel to rest and relax as I would be out sightseeing all day. The photos from the hotel website gave me an impression that this would be a clean and fuss free hotel. The service was very average and the rooms did not have really good sound... More

Wow, these SSAW hotels are really an excellent value. For about $50 US (338 RMB) I got a queen bed in an extremely modern, clean room, with free internet access. You have to walk down a driveway to get to the entrance, but once there you'll realize how nice this place is. However, this is not a good place for... More

We booked this hotel to stay by the Huanglong stadium to be near the starting line for the Hangzhou marathon. We were expecting a fairly dull hotel for the price and were certainly greeted by a fairly dull hotel façade. Yet, the SSAW Yilian turned out to be a little jewel behind that façade. There was a lot of effort... More
