Well equipped for hosting conferences & very family friendly. But, it's a bit of a hike from main attractions of Hangzhou like West Lakes area. All the same, if you don't mind s 10 minute walk the metro is not that far away. Downside is the bar doesn't really provide many options.

Some people might like this place, but I had problems trying to grasp the concept. It might be due to the low season, but this place is far from the place it pretends to be.

I just got back from a business conference held at this hotel. Thought I would just update the review since it has been 2 1/2 years since the last review. Obviously not many people get out to this hotel from the number of reviews. It really is a nice hotel facility. I really concur with the previous review. Way too... More

The First World Hotel is a typical brand new 5 (local) stars Chinese hotel with a lot of "gold" and flashy furnitures and also a lot of high tech equipments everywhere. Unfortunately, if this high tech equip is funny (more funny than really convenient), it makes things complicated when you want to make sure lights are off during the night... More
