Nice hotel, walking distance to west lake (30 minutes) and the central station (10 minutes). The rooms were nice but it smelled a little old and the bathroom had only a bath tub with a shower curtain. The breakfast location is stunning, on the top floor of the building to overview Hangzhou and west lake. For western taste the breakfast... More

It is not a bad hotel. You can easily stay here, if you don't have very high expectations. The rooms were small and shapeless. The price is very reasonable. Some of the staff at the reception can not talk English.

I chose Goethe Hotel in Hangzhou after extensive research, and was very happy with this choice. This hotel is within very easy walking distance of the Hangzhou Train Station (the central one, as there are two big train stations in Hangzhou). Getting from this hotel to West Lake is also very easy, it's either 20+ minutes walking, or taking the... More

Had a business meeting in the hotel and I received a nice room on 30th floor. Sadly, it was just accross the elevators, and loudy guests did wake me up Sound insulation from room to room is a serious issue, as I heard the guest next door sore and snort all night Services however are good and are up to...

Have stayed in Hangzhou a few times, but first time at the Goethe. The rooms are very high end, think Westin or Intercontinental with lots of limestone tile. Location wise your not on the lake like the Hyatt, however you are both in the city area for shopping and a brief walk to the lake. Breakfast had limited western options... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times. The rooms are luxurious...particularly the bathrooms. Breakfast buffet is good but not great. The only really thing I didn't care for was that it always seems I am the only person staying in the hotel. The lobby, bars and restaurants in the hotel are all devoid of patrons.

My wife and I stayed here to visit her brother back in January 2013. I could not believe the price of the room we received. The view was fantastic and service was excellent. The buffet on the top floor was tasty and affordable. If anyone would like a 4-5 star quality hotel in the Hangzhou area, please do stay here... More

This is a great hotel after the stay in the Relax Hotel. Obviously more costly too. The Junior suite is very spacious and I then moved to their deluxe room which was small but well appointed and comfortable. If you arrive by high speed train, the station is a 100m away. The breakfast is good and the buffet dinner has... More
