“Nice and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

I found this hotel really comfortable and cheap place to stay. The rooms are spacious and the bed was large. The decor was slightly dated but did bother me. I also found the location quite convenient as I could catch a taxi any time of the day and also most taxi drivers know the hotel - although I carried a taxi card with me which is written in Chinese.

The rooms in this hotel are a good size, well appointed, modern and unique. The elegant designs of the rooms is unlike anything I've ever seen in a hotel before. The way the bathroom opens up on 2 sides make very good use of the space, and makes the room seem even larger. There is a revolving restaurant on the top floor which gives spectacular views of West Lake and copious amounts of choice of what you want to eat. They even give you free calls anywhere in China.

The hotel is strategically located within few minutes walk to west lake. Out from lobby to the left just walk straight ahead and here you are at west lake. Along the street there are also a bakery, a local western fast food chain restaurant and small street where you can find small local restaurants. The hotel also provide a booklet of hangzhou guide book with a map. The room was clean nice comfy bed strong shower,standard hotel amenities with few oranges as one of the complimentary. From the room can see west lake from far. Arriving at the hotel from the airport at midnight, the taxi driver got lost a little bit because of the one-way road. But we print out hotel map and address in Chinese with hotel phone number so with this we found it in short.
We asked hotel staff to help us find taxi to airport on 5pm which said to be rush hour but taxi can be found in just few minutes. you can also exchange smaller notes here. Overall we are happy and will return and recommended

The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk away from West Lake. It is located near the fountain show of West Lake. In the morning, it is nice to take a stroll along the West Lake and enjoy the scenery and the activities along the lake.

Hotel is pretty centralised with shopping area between the Lake and the hotel. The facilities are good and the staff are very helpful. It is a nice hotel with reasonable price.

Well located just a short walk to the West Lake and the free water show. Hotel in need of a revamp but clean and comfortable. Very small bathroom but the shower size is large with excellent water pressure. Minor traffic noise on the 10th floor. Each room has a large view window of the City or the Lake. Good wired internet and a comfortable bed. Breakfast is in the revolving restaurant on the 20th floor and would be the best in China. Ham, bacon, duck, sushi, noodles you name it and all perfectly presented and fresh. The location and the breakfast make this Hotel a good choice.

Room Tip: High floors are better for the traffic noise.

Do not use their travel office locate on second floor for booking anything because first they do not accept credit card but will not tell you till the end, second they tend to mess up thing easily as our air fare tickets got mess up - no assigned seat number on the paper tickets. We were being told by the lady at first that it would be fine as long as we call the airline later directly to get the seat number. And we ended up going to the airport 4 hours earlier since we could not get the seat over the phone.

The hotel location is good. But front desk staff needs more customer service training. When asked about some city questions, they just told us to check the information online by ourselves.
