Classic style on waterway in middle of pedestrian old town. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops nearby. Chinese Venice. Friendly service. Buggies are available if you don’t want to walk. Extremely picturesque at night.
We stayed at the hotel as part of a conference and the stay was pleasant enough. The hotel was renovated in an old style charm but also at the same time, it seems that its just old but in good condition if that makes sense. Lobby area is inviting and staff are helpful. English is spoken but its the level of competency that you'll find in the rest of China, which is not the same level as Indonesia or Thailand. In short, sufficient enough to convey a message but dont expect in-depth conversations. The grounds are what makes the stay enjoyable. The whole village is charming quite touristy at times.
I honestly do not know much about the history of the hotel because i was too busy taking care of my child. But from my observation during my stay, the hotel looks as if the entire structure was preserved outside and renovated inside to accommodate hotel rooms and facilities. The interior of the lobby looks oriental modern and does not disappoint. The lobby is spacious and well-lit, with heaters in some areas that could keep a person or two warm if you stand beneath it. The reception area is a good blend of contemporary and old. I think it is to transition the customer into the room. Because the rooms look old and as if transported back in the 50s (?) China with four post bed, old cabinets and drawers and an office desk. It is also quite dim, to the point where sometimes i would have to squint and move slowly when i am trying to find things in the room. It feels stuffy to be completely honest. What concerns me the most is the thinness of the walls! Every squeak every needle dropped on the room next door could be heard in our room, let alone the banging of doors early in the mornings by unruly local Chinese and them speaking loudly to each other as if cursing. My baby and i have been woken many times by doors being banged shut in mornings and at one point even at 2 AM! The hotel must set policies on noise past 8 PM. There are children staying at the hotel too. The breakfast buffet selection was basic — they’ve got the East and West covered in a span of around 20 meter buffet area and that’s just about it. Service was so-so too with some communication gap. English is not a language that is spoken often in Wuzhen and neither at this hotel. Your food, just because it looks like you’ve finished, will be taken away quickly by their servers unless you tell them not to which i’ve neglected to do a couple of times because i had to leave my spot and tend to my son. So i ended up going back to the buffet stations and get the food that i havent eat / that theyve taken. I think it’s okay to stay at this hotel for just one night, only to experience and see Wuzhen. But no more than that. One night would suffice as it is already enough time to walk around the entire town. …
Waterside Resort is perhaps the largest in the Wuzhen resort. The whole Wuzhen tourist area is a huge "resort" by itself - when checking in, you are not checking in into your hotel. You check in at the Wuzhen Resort front desk. You'll then be directed to your booked hotel, in this case, Waterside. Your luggage will be labeled properly and delivered to the hotel. As mentioned, Waterside is a huge resort and is devided into 4 zones. Entering from the West lobby, which is a typical 5-6 stars hotel reception area, in modern deco, zone 1 is modern hotel rooms look. Zone 2 has some wood deco along the corridor. Zone 3 is on another side, with old wood style looking rooms and corridor. Our room is in zone 4, entering from the East gate, is typical old stone alley, old wood roll houses hundreds years old. Ground floor is a common sitting room. Our room is on the 2nd floor with a quite steep staircase but don't worry, resrot staff very nice and helped bring our luggages into the room. Room deco, as expected, is old style, back to perhaps a hundred year old era. There are several restaurants in Waterside. All looks very good with nice deco. Breakfast is excellent. A good variety of local and Western style food to choose from. If we come to Wuzhen again, we would stay at Waterside.…
Hotel is quiet unique nicely decorated with classic ancient chinese charm. Breakfast wow be ready to avoid tour group rush clearing plates by plates or empty trays. Swimming pool indoor not heated as mentioned by someone and life guard insist that you must wear a cap to swim as he stand guarding all the time. Wifi sucks and you have to bring your passport for setting up to the not so friendly receptionist
