“Excellent hotel--especially the amazing breakfast in the revolving restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2010

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It was an excellent choice. It's in a great area for walking around. If you prefer to eat local food (as we do) there were a ton of options. Plus, lots of great people-watching in the area. The room was clean and pleasant. One of the reasons we picked the hotel was because people on Trip Advisor talked about the great revolving restaurant where the breakfast is served and the Trip Advisor community was correct once again. The breakfast was amazing! I know it sounds silly to review a hotel based on the breakfast, but the revolving restaurant with views of the city were great--and free!! How amazing is that?! There was a huge spread of food available--Western, Chinese and Japanese. I admit, it was our favorite breakfast on our 24 day trip because of the huge selection (and the fresh waffles that tasted like donuts--not healthy, but delicious). The room was clean and enjoyable and I would definitely stay in this hotel again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

4 of us stayed 2 nights. Then we went on to Shanghai for 5days. They allowed us to store our luggage there free of charge for the entire period. When we came back from Shanghai it was morning, but we were due to fly home that night. They allowed us to store the rest of our luggage at the hotel till night without charge and full of smiles. When we went to collect our luggage the porter helpfully lugged them (5pieces) all onto the taxi and refused our tip. His name is Angel (yes, that's right). He just said its all part of the service. I mean how much better can the service get? We stayed there for 2 nights several days ago and they were still so eager and helpful.
The breakfast (included) at the revolving restaurant was very good. There were Chinese, Western, Japanese food and a whole host of other variety. The view was even better! On the day we had to leave for Shanghai, we had to leave pretty early and lamented that we had no time to enjoy the breakfast with a view. When he heard this, the receptionist made a call. Before our transport came to take us to Shanghai, one of the staff came with 2 big bags. In 1 of them were hot pastries and dumplings while the other contained fruits and cups of yoghurt.
The receptionists all spoke pretty good English though I'm not sure about the porters. Rooms were clean and good.
BTW, I'm told the duvet and pillows are genuine silk that Hangzhou is famous for.
1 warning, though. Pls do not pay extra for the lake-view. There is construction work going on currently in the middle of the night and its SO noisy for those with rooms facing the mud hole mentioned by earlier reviewer. My 2 friends who had the city-view room slept blissfully without hearing a thing. Go enjoy the view at the revoving restaurant. Don't forget to say hello to Angel. He really is an angel.
