Hotel nearby West Lake is advised, e.g. Lotus Glade Hotel 52 Hangzhou (http://www.lianyu52.com/en/index.asp), West Lake 7 Hotel Hangzhou (http://www.westlake7.com/).

Most of bullet train departures from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. Bus from Pudong airport to Hangzhou is available from the airport distance bus station on 2F of Terminal 1.

Hangzhou, China

1), At the east part of the westlake with much more convenient transportation, becoz it's downtown area. And there are a lot of hotels you can choose from the economical to five stars.

At the west part of the west lake, with very peaceful and serene surroundings. There are some hostels dotted in that area. But i think it's not easy for you since you are the first time here in Hangzhou.

2), Hangzhou is a city you can visit all year round. You can visit the Lingyin Temple, walk around the lake, Qinghefang Old street, Leifeng pagoda, Tea Plantation, Bamboo lined path at Yunqi........

3), The most economical way: Take subway Line 2 to the Hongqiao Train Station. Take train from Shanghai to Hangzhou.

The most convenient way: Take the Long Distance Bus from PVG airport to Hangzhou and get off at the wULIN Square.

More info please if available. I will be in Hangzhou for 5 months and would like to know more about places to stay. Clean, quiet if possible. I ask for little more than that. L
