I stayed at Crystal Orange Hotel on 6 June 2010 and am overall happy with the hotel room. The hotel is quite trendy. The rooms were clean and tasteful, with a clean and comfortable bed. I was happy that it was not the super-firm type of mattress that is normally found in China hotel chains. The glass wall of the bathroom added a quirky touch to the room.
Another quirky touch was the pet fighting fish in the room, and the rubik's cube. My son, who takes great pride in solving rubik's cube puzzles fast, said that the colours have been switched around.
The reception staff seem overworked, and do not have the time for niceties. But they are efficient and do their best to get the paperwork done fast and give you your room. However, they do not speak English, and that will be a stumbling block if you do not speak Mandarin.
There is a good Brazilian churrascaria restaurant connected to the Hotel and it costs 68-78rmb per person depending on whether you go on weekday/weekend. The meats were quite good, and the ribs were succulent. You get live entertainment too!
The breakfast, however, is not something to die for. To be honest, it was paltry. The porridge was edible (and that will do for me), but the selection of muffins, cakes and pastries which make up their continental breakfast selection were cold, hard and unpalatable. Egg was done only as "egg over (super)hard" and was cold. No ham, bacon or sausage. If a good buffet breakfast is what makes or breaks your holiday, then it is better to give this a miss.
But for a clean room, comfortable beds, and a good location near to West Lake - all for a reasonable price - I would stay at Cyrstal Orange Hotel again.
