It's a great surprise to stay in this very old-fashioned but quiet hotel just close to the famous parts of West Lake!
The room we stayed was a row house featuring three stories, one living room on the 1st floor, one bedroom and bathroom on the 2nd floor and one balcony on the top floor where we could enjoy sunshine there, but unfortunatly we got to the hotel late and the day got dark and rained..
The bathroom was big and showerhead was very comfortable. I love all the octagonal things in this room: lamp, paper, table, seats.. one of the staffs told us they're all custom-made!
I would also like to recommend its free bicycle rental, it‘s an awesome experience to be able to get around without terrible traffic jam and experience what West Lake truely feels like.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than a luxury boutique hotel, the new member of Relais & Châteaux family is also a listed building steeped in history. Created on the remnants of Shikumen villas, typical local residences in the 1930s, Chaptel Hangzhou is an architectural gem. The time-honored compound mirrors China in the past, and also leads the fashion today. The traditional Chinese wooden furniture with Art Deco ornaments show us the charm of classicism, the independent balcony and terrace in each villa open an access to the naturalism, and the incomparable hotel service brings us an enjoyment of humanism. The taste of Chaptel lies not only in its culture and history, but also the divine dishes. Xike Hall serves the authentic western food, traditional local delicacies and classic British afternoon tea. It is a great feast for tongue. Located near the picturesque West Lake and the city center, Chaptel Hangzhou is absolutely a good choice for both business and leisure purposes. ... more less
