“Brilliant value, excellent stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed at this guesthouse for two weeks. It is one of the best value places we have ever stayed in. It is also far nicer than anywhere else available in the Zeng Cuo An area. We went to see quite a few places (all the top-rated ones on Trip Advisor and Booking.com) when we first arrived and no where else came close to being as nice.

It is a modernised traditional Chinese house where the rooms are set around a small beautiful courtyard garden, designed by the owners. We stayed in one of the rooms facing directly on the courtyard. It was light and airy with a comfortable bed. Our room had a large bathroom with two sinks and a shower.

The service was absolutely brilliant. The owners and their family were all very nice. The receptionist Xiao Huang was particularly friendly and helpful and she really helped make our stay such an enjoyable experience. There is also a cute dog called Simba who guards the property and eats whatever is available!

We paid RMB 190 per night. This is a little cheaper than is available on online but we were there in low season and stayed for a while. We thought this was brilliant value. Obviously for this price everything isn't perfect (but it isn't far off) and you can't expect it to be when you pay so little.

The area surrounding the guesthouse has lots of shops, bars and B&Bs. The seaside is a 2 minute walk away. There are nice walks along the coast in both directions. There are regular buses to the main areas of Xiamen which are about 15 mins away.

Therefore, in summary, we can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the courtyard are the brightest but the loft and garden rooms are more private and...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

booked through agoda and met the owners. it's a new hotel, used to be a really old house preserved well and renovated. has a really zen feeling and relaxing to it. totally express what xiamen is all about, a mix of old and the new. really nice modern rooms, facilities and free water lol. at first it would be kind of hard to look for it, but it's near all the other bnb/inns in the siming district. just look for the convenience store as a landmark (note this store sells mostly expired goods haha)

Room Tip: single rooms can be good for two
