Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed it. So back in Xiamen again, I choose to stay here again.
We were not disappointed. This hotel actually has some atmosphere, iit even exudes a kind of effortless style missing from most swankey yet characterless Chinese hotels.
Xiamen is a lovely city which helps and the hotel lounge its actually a great place to chill.
Lovely big bedroom
Massive and comfortable bed
With an actual working thermostat
Really very good breakfast
We had a great meal in the Shogan hotel restaurant
All in all a good place to stay

Modern and spacious room, stylish furniture and very comfortable bed. The bathroom does not match the room (it is high time to make some renowation). Great breakfast, wilde range of different styles of foods. Located near nice restaurants (Chiese, Taiwanese, Japanese). If you cross the street, you will find yourself in a very nice park (perfect place to take a moring or an evening walk). If you use the rear door, you will enter the Starbucks Coffee.

I have stayed at the MP Xiamen for over 10 years. The recent renovation is fantastic and only made a great experience better.

The restaurants inside and located nearby offer the best variety in the city.

When in Xiamen i recommend that everyone stay at the Marco Polo

Staying in Marco Polo Hotel, Xiamen always is a pleasure. The staff are attentive and proactive from check-in to check-out. I have so far not been disappointed everytime I stay at this hotel. The hotel is recently upgraded so you have the "luxury" feeling. Now they need to work on "upgrading" their breakfast selection and presentation, which although not bad, could benefit from offering a wider selection.

Room Tip: Just simply ask the staff at check-in if you have not pre-booked. They will usually try to accomodat...

The Marco Polo Hotel is right next to the famous Coffee Street with bougainvillea vines and hibiscus trees prominent and in full bloom on the grounds. The lobby has ornate floral decorations with an arcade of luxury shops (Vuitton!) descending on the right. There is even a Starbucks connected to the hotel. The breakfast is absolutely amazing and serves both Asian and Western options in such profusion I rarely needed lunch. The downstairs lobby has a lovely sitting area with live performances from 5-9pm in the evenings. There is a pool and fitness room on the 3rd floor. In our hotel room, we had two good movie channels and could call in a free pillow specialist - who offers ten different types of pillows. Excellent service in every way. There is a small lake to walk around right in front of the hotel and several good Italian and Japanese restaurants right across the street, just before Coffee Street begins. Behind the hotel is a small foreign food store, where you can buy items like a cold Dr. Pepper! It is a short 16RMB taxi ride to the Zhongshan Walking Street and the ferry to Gulangyu Island.

in Xiamen for business guys , so the rooms were not built with western standards in mind of noise reduction , its the only fault i can really say about the place

3 times stays this year (2012) for business trip, which highly recommened by my customers in Xiamen, plus also lived it by my colleagues from Hong Kong. Besides nice loation, I could enjoy my private time for bar & coffee drink nearby. Eventhough this hotel facities is no longer fashion and updated, but maintained excellence. My 1st. stay experience was in 1996 when Maro Polo Xiamen was just open, I still could find old employee in hotel for charting when check-in (eg. Alice ), it is so nice to feel time back and it is still my preferred hotel stay like back home.
