We came on a 3D2N trip from SH. Xiamen is just crowded, from Gulangyu to all the major spots in the city (Xiamen University included) at least an hour worth of wait. Anyway, back to the hotel...

The check-in was smooth and friendly, we had a staff (Eleven) - all smiles. The room itself is modern and we like the balcony overseeing the garden below, the air is fresh and it does get windy late in the afternoon. (you will sleep very very well)

The breakfast, simple and healthy, decent variety. I thought the venue is under-staff at times because after 9am, I notice it took them quite a while to replenish the food. (waited 30 minutes for the cold milk)

The dinner - variety isnt there at all but we were very happy with the freshness of the seafood and roast. The only downside was the house wine selection, we were told they wont open a new bottle just to cater for one order (makes sense) Service from the staff - Mickey, Janet and a gentleman (from Lebanon) - not only smiles but genuine top class cutomer experience.

The only downside is the lack of taxis otherwise, highly recommend this hotel.

I am a fan!

Stayed several times in Xiamen over the last year for business (and pleasure) and tried several of the high-end hotels. The Meridien (7 stays so far) is a good choice if you dont mind having no bars and restaurants nearby. It's all clean, good value, magnificant setting on the mountain, decent breakfast, top-notch service (especially at the buffet-restaurant) and everything else you can expect from a 5-star hotel.

Points of attention,
- Paying for internet? We dont live in 1995 anymore...
- Little bit too loud live-music in the bar if you need a quick dinner after a late-night work
- Twice my non-smoking room smelled like smoke (and these rooms are often more expensive), it was solved with a treatment (worked surprisingly well) but they had to repeat the treatment several times as it only works several hours. It seems some hotels in China have this problem better under control than others...

Le Meridien is a beaitiful hotel with a lot of attention to details, helpfull reception personel, nice rooms with very good beds and nice bathroom. Breakfast buffet with a lot of different kitchen styles. Dinner buffet is not really high end and drinks are expensive. 10 mins by taxi to city center.

Really nicely designed property built into the hills above Xiamen. Its a taxi ride from the city proper but its good to be away from the downtown hustle and bustle in peaceful surroundings . Nice gardens and layout around the property with good use of planting and water features Well worth a visit.

Beautiful hotel set in lush hills and palm trees. The rooms are spacious and bright. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The hotel is surrounded by running trails and has a great tennis court. Le meridien always impresses and this is one of their best ones! I love how they incorporate some of the country's touches in the rooms. Service is professional and attentive without being stuffy. Only drawback is a bit far from city center, but I was on business and happy to return to this wonderful hotel.

Looks fantastic to arrive here at night, as situated on hill with lights all around, entrance area looked very plush, let down immediately by its staff! Upon check in they were really snooty, it almost seemed as though because we were only staying one night that we were not worth the effort. Bar area was nice, member of staff although very slow, was nice, dry martini went down well, poor selection of tv for any European visitor. Overall decidedly average.

Dear Wild H,

Thanks for taking the time to review us after your recent stay.

I was disappointed to read that you thought the service at the Front Desk at check in wasn’t up you your expectations –that is not the feedback we usually receive however I’ll be sure to pass your comments to them so they can continue to provide exceptional servive to every guest.

I was pleased that you enjoyed your martini in our Latitude 24 Bar.

Hopefully next time you visit Xiamen you can stay a little longer!

Warmest regards
Matthew
