Siming district is best. Whether for business or holiday. Its best central location. If Gulanyu Island and shopping on Zhongshan Lu is your preference... Try Tegoo Hotel (70 USD ) Swiss Int'l ( 120 USD) my personal favorite ...or for some historical hotel Lujiang Harbour ( 100 USD) all are within walking of key visitor interests. Also, consider the coffee street area of Siming district ( Hubin Bei Lu ) where all the expats and trendy seem gather. Consider Marco Polo ( 110 USD) or highly rated Pan Pacific. ( USD 100 )After 25 years travelling to Xiamen these are your best bets ! Use the T/A hotel choices for exact rates during your visit time. Taxi from Airport between 30-40 RMB depanding upon your choice. For walking once you arrive its the 1st 3 options listed. If you prefer coffee street area you are no more than 10 RMB to the key visitor interest areas. ENJOY !!!
