I would recommend this hotel if you plan to explore West Lake due to its good location. There are some bus station nearby to bring you to all directions. Taxi drivers are familiar with this place as well. This place is also near Hangzhou Botanical Garden so it will give you nature feel. You will wake up each morning by...

The room is SO DAMN SMALL, but COMFY. Really like the blanket and pillow. I got the bunk beds and non-smoking room. The staff was really really NICE. They can speak a little bit English and that was very helpful. However, this place is isolated, whenever I wanna use Uber they find it hard to reach this hotel.

Easy and not far to walk to West Lake although at the quieter side of the lake. We had bunk beds, we swapped rooms because our window didn't lock only to later find someone else walk in our room as they had also been checked in there. When this was resolved room was fine. There isn't much room and the...

Despite the fancy pictures on its website, Pod Inn actually offers extremely humid and small rooms with moisture all other the sailing and ... bed bugs ! And of course if the company of bed bugs were not enough, as a previous poster mentioned, you can rent the services of a prostitute (a small card is slipped under the door...

Budget accommodation, great location and good staff, but the rooms are rundown and a bit yuck. This place really is budget, but for the price and location you just can't beat it. It's really cheap and so close to the incredible gardens of the West Lake. You can hire bikes from the hotel, making it easy to get around and...

We stayed in pod Inn Hangzhou on the 4th June 2012. The location is good, about 30 minutes' drive from Hangzhou railway station. Taxi fare is around RMB25. Bus stop is 500 meters away, and 7-8 minutes walk to Xihu area. Standard double room (RMB161/night), is very small, a bit squeeze for 2 persons. No free disposable item. Only small...

Strategic location, just around Xihu area, but a bit off the main road. Room is super super small, but hey it's okay as I'm just single traveller. The room is geared toward young people, with LCD TV inside. However, receptionist is not speaking English at all ! Quite difficult to ask information around Hangzhou area
