I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 5 years and it remains my first choice for a hotel in Hangzhou. Centrally located it is an easy walk down to the lake, has many features nearby, and is an easy taxi ride to those further away.
The rooms are smaller than some other hotels, but I have always found them comfortable. Rooms are a little dated on some floors but really great on others. But I can understand they are upgrading all the time. I like the rooms with a view of the lake, but often am happy with just one of the business rooms too if on a short stay.
In terms of food there are a number of restaurants in house, but equally some great restaurants nearby too. There is a sichuan restaurant nearby which will blow your socks off! In house there is a great Japanese restaurant near the top of the hotel. I would be lying if i said I remember everything as my brother-in-law and I drank quite a lot of Saki so things got a little blurry towards the end of the evening. I do remember though great food and some beautiful and unusual options. He also ended the evening with a book about BMW's touring the Grand Canal, but neither of us are quite sure why?
Breakfast here though is a must. A fantastic selection of food, they will make your eggs how you like but sitting in the revolving restaurant and slowly watching the view change as you eat is cool!
Totally recommended for anyone. English spoken by staff is great and concierge staff are always very helpful too.
