Its location is excellent! Just walking distance to West Lake (and it's on the "good" side of West Lake that's close to downtown). It's hard to get taxi in Hangzhou, so great location is important. We arrived by train and saw long taxi lineup at the station. So we decide to take subway instead and this hotel is accessible by subway (about 10 min walk).
The location is excellent as major sightseeing areas are just within walking distance (e.g. West Lake, Song Dynasty Street). It will save you a lot of finding taxi and traffic time. It is also accessible by bus, which gives you an alternate choice when you can't find taxi.
The room is spacious and beds are comfortable. Staff are friendly.
The breakfast buffet is included in our booking and there are lots of varieties in the buffet.
In summary, it's definitely a excellent choice and worth its price for its location, service and food. We will stay there again on our next visit!
