“Fine but idiosyncratic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2008

This hotel clearly targets the upper end of business and leisure travellers and is ambitious in its scale - more than 1500 rooms. The principal architectural feature is a cavernous atrium. One of the negative effects of the atrium is the fact that some standard rooms - including the one I stayed in - have no windows. If you are claustrophobic, take care when booking. The breakfast buffet is excellent with enough choice to satisfy the western as well as the many eastern clients. The staff was, on the whole, helpful and spoke at least some English.

  • Liked — Good breakfast, good wireless internet connection in the rooms.
  • Disliked — The windowless room.
  • Stayed November 2008

Location is the only downside to this hotel, but its very close to the airport. Top notch service, good english spoken here by the staf. The pool and exercise rooms are great.

Stayed in a two room suite for about 400 RMB per night. Two plasma TVs, amenaties, super clean facilities. The Buffet is also pretty good.

  • Liked — Great value
  • Disliked — 10 Minute drive to downtown Xiamen
  • Stayed July 2007, traveled on business
