I chose this hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and it certainly did not let me down. From the moment you walk into this hotel you would swear that you are in Europe, not China.
The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are equipped with decent size flat screened televisions, Bose wave radios, and a fully stocked mini-bar. I love coffee in the morning, and this is first hotel that I have stayed at where the mini-bar featured a french press for coffee as opposed to the ubiquitous nescafe freeze dried coffee that is a staple of Asian hotel rooms.
The room, and the bathroom were on the small side, not tiny, and comfortable nonetheless. There was a stand up shower with high water pressure, L'Occitane toiletries.
There is a bar downstairs open until 10 or 11 PM, and an on site buffet serving breakfast and dinner. I didn't get to eat dinner there, but managed to get breakfast, and it was high quality, with the typical selection of most Asian hotels, a mix of western and asian dishes, as well as an omelet bar.
My only gripe, and it is a small one, is that the hotel is on a fairly busy street, and does not have a place for a vehicle to pull in for drop off and pick up. Not a big deal, but at times challenging if you're bringing a lot of boxes or bags in and out.
Overall, the Ex Palm d'or Hotel is a great value in Wenzhou, and I will definitely stay there again the next time work brings me to town.
