“A very homely boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

It's a gorgeous hotel! The exterior design is very oriental but the interior is simple and nice. We got a corner room on the second floor and the room was huge, I think it's definitely worth more than what we paid for. The hotel only provides simple breakfast and you actually have to DIY. The staff will send us bread, milk, eggs and apples every evening for next day's breakfast. There's a toaster and egg cooking machine in our room plus a medium size fridge. If you don't feel like cooking, there are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and local snacks on the street, right outside the hotel.

The hotel security is also very good as all guests must ring the door bell and wait for the staffs to come open the door for you before you get to enter the hotel. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends who plan to travel to HZ and I'll definitely come back again!

Room Tip: Corner suites are large, try to get a room on higher floor for a better view but you'll have to...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I and my wife stayed here in March and as then they were still putting the finishing touches to some of the rooms. But this work going on never disturbed our stay. The rooms are big enough and immaculate as is the whole hotel. The reception staff are pleasant and check in was faultless. Assistance with your luggage is also available if need be . There is a nice lounge area with plentiful books to read and a television. The room has all one needs and though there is no door between the bathroom area and bedroom this was no problem for us, but may be for some. Though we did see on one other room there was a blind of some form to put down between. Free wifi is available and there was no problems with the connection. Getting there from the railway station was a short walk and it is not far at all from West Lake being within easy walking distance, and there is a good choice of restaurants in the area. All in all a pleasant stay and would highly recommend it.
