Hangzhou Jinxi Hotel

Reviewed October 13, 2013

It was a nice surprise when the taxi arrived at the hotel! We chose it because it was close to the lake. Didn't expect the hotel to be so nice. Room was clean, service was good. The restaurant serves very nice food too. We will go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for the up-stair rooms, more lights. The Chinese restaurant is very good, it's a must!

I spent 4 nights here in June 2013. It was fantastic. clean and modern, but most importantly surrounded by beautiful greenery and of course the famous west lake. The staff were very kind, even though there were some language barrier moments :)

Really quiet place with the lake just across the road. Spent 2 nights there and loved the decor. We had lunch there and the food was nicely done. Good service. Within walking distance to watch impression Hangzhou.

I stayed at the Jinxi Hotel in May 2013 and I would definitely return. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and the restaurant meals that we had at the hotel were excellent. On our return to Hangzhou they were completely booked so we stayed at the Xihu State Guesthouse. Both hotels are very nice; if you do not speak any CHinese it might be a challenge to stay at either but I'd recommend both.

Room Tip: The first room I was shown faced the street. I asked for a quieter room and was shifted into Villa 3...

Really good place to stay in, the place is very quiet with a big garden and west lake or xihu lake is right at the front gate of the hotel.
The main city center is a little way off, but taxis to and from the hotel are easy to get, taxi fare will be around 15 to 20 RMB to the main city center, to the silk market and other nearby places of interest. Alternatively, you can also take a nice walk along the lakeside, it will take you around 30 - 40 mins to cover the distance to the main markets which is on opposite side of the lake.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is not included in the tariff, but is worth paying for, it is buffet type with a wide range and variety that even vegetarians will enjoy.
The Hangzhou-Xiaoshan international airport is 40 - 60 mins away depending on traffic, taxj fare is usually around 125 - 140 RMB, if you want to catch a train to Shanghai, a taxi ride to the railway station from the hotel will cost around 25 RMB.
The place is very clean and very quiet, with english speaking staff at the front desk. They were always very helpful in arranging for a taxi or just providing general information.
Thoroughly enjoyed the stay there and look forward to visiting Hangzhou and Jinxi Hotel again.

My wife and I stayed spent three nights at the Jinxi Hotel during the second week of May, 2012. We were definitely the only Americans at the hotel and really the only westerners that we saw during our stay. For us this was wonderful as we like the immersion experience, but many westerners who want to be catered to might prefer another hotel. For example, most of the staff at the front desk and in the restaurant spoke minimal English.

The location is excellent for spending time walking around West Lake, going to the West Lake Impression show, etc., but it will take a taxi ride to get to downtown Hangzhou.

The hotel itself was without a doubt the quietest I have ever stayed in. The lobby and "villas" are beautifully appointed with Japanese garden-like patios and courtyards around every corner. Has the feel of the beautifully manicured landscapes of the west lake. Our room was pretty standard with a very comfortable king-size bed, a shower stall but no bathtub. Well equipped overall. the only minor complaints were that the toilet was a little leaky and the thermostat was locked so the temperature is controlled - got a bit warm at night.

As others have written, the main restaurant offers a buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with mostly Chinese offerings. The food was generally very good and we found ourselves eating quite a bit because there was so much available and with a wide variety.

Overall, this was a great stay and would certainly come back to the Jinxi Hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 3 on the second floor - a bit of a walk from the lobby but very, very quiet!

Stayed here for 4 nights in winter 2011. The rooms are very clean and the ambience is lovely, with a lot of greenery and lawns around the main building. It was quiet and very idyllic. The West Lake is right across the street and it was easy to go there for walks in the mornings. I liked the small touches such as color-coded bath/facial towels in the bathrooms - which were also very nice and had rainfall showers.

A number of drunken guests were hollering outside our room one night (about 1-2am?) and I called reception who promptly chased them away. No such experiences on the other nights.
