“Decent accomodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

Well, I was in Xiamen just couple of weeks ago for a famous worldwide exhibition, and our chinese colleagues have organized our stay in this hotel.
The room was provided with matrimonial bed, minibar, safe, desktop with cable for internet, and a clean toilet with shower box.
The bidet in the toilet was missing.
The chinese staff was as usual always very kind, but the poor knowledge of english language was disappointing and leading to nerves; but we're guests in China, and we should speak chinese, so I kept always smiling and kind.
A young Egyptian boy down to the concierge was speaking fairly well english, tough with his arab accent, nevertheless he was always very kind and well mannered.
Breakfast similar to the western style one, I say similar because I could not absolutely find the taste of the food I can have here in Italy.
The only black spot I've found in it was the lack of direct sun light inside the bedroom, which was forcing to use the lights.
I have not experience of other international hotels in Xiamen, but I can say good value for money, clean rooms, helpful service, very kind staff, and after all a quite decent accomodation.

This is one of the hotels I really want to be back again. Clean and very comfortable rooms, breakfast is very tasty and give enough choices. I didnt expect such a service in Xiamen for sure. Taxi easily find the way to the hotel. I was totally satisfied.

Chose this hotel purely for location (near where I had to be).
Room was spacious and clean, bed was big and very comfy.

Found ALL staff members to be extremely friendly, housekeeping were full of smiles, front desk very helpful and welcoming.

As for food, I only tried breakfast and it was above average for Chinese 4 star. Eggs, bacon, sausage, egg, beans, sauted potatoes and toast did the job.

Would definitiely stay here again, CTrip rate was 528rmb for queen room , for that price I could not find a single fault with the hotel.

Free Wifi in rooms.

I am always treated like a King when I stay in this hotel, highly recommended for business travelers. I have stayed in most major hotels in XIamen but I always come back to ra-mee-da, chang sheng jiu dian! The food is excellent, the best value for your RMB in Xiamen. The exercise room was recently remodeled. I have stayed in this hotel over 100 days.

Room Tip: Choose a room with walk-in shower.

First time in Xiamen, decided to be safe and choose Ramada as it's an international chain. Happy with the decision as the service was pleasant, helpful with my storage (boxes left there for a few days), rooms comfortable and breakfast spread fantastic.

Location slightly out of the way but taxis are easy to find. Travelling to main shopping belt of Zhongshan Road around RMB18. From airport 30 min, and less than RMB40.

This is not the best Ramada hotel I have stayed out. I picked it simply for the reason of its proximity to airport and reasonable price. However upon arrival, I soon discovered this hotel, as previous review indicated, is a bit worn and outdated so I can only consider it a "passable" Ramada.

Location wise, it is very close to the airport (about 15 min) but at the old part of downtown. While it is still convenient, it is a bit far from all the "must-go" places. Fortunately taxi cabs are cheap and take you easily anywhere.

I was upgraded to a suite on the executive floor with free internet and drinks. The room is considered spacious and has all the amenities I need but I must say the decor is outdated and does need a facelit urgently. I was informed this hotel is undergoing a major renovation so I assme all guestrooms will look significantly better in a year or two. Having to say that, the BED is unbelievably comfortable and is probably one of the best beds I have ever slept on during my six years of business travel in China! This is totally one of the few highlights in my trip to Xiamen!

Service. Hotel staff is courteous and friendly so I really can not be critical. However, breakfast is below standard and has something left to be desired - selection is scarce and quality is poor. Major improvement in this area is urgently needed.

Overall I consider my first ever experience with Ramada Xiamen OK but not great. Would I stay here again? Possibly not, especially considering there are many other better choices..... but for budget conscious travelers, this is probably an OK choice.
