Lakeview Xuanwu Hotel
Ranked #25 of 1,969 Hotels in Nanjing
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Service was excellent, you call and they answer! Towels, iron, ice, laundry... it all happens very quickly, impressively so. Check in was super easy. English was no problem.

We booked a suite which slept 3 people (when using a rollaway). The beds were excellent (firm) but the room was warm. Someone told us they shut off the AC during fall and winter months; our trip was in October. That might be fine for lower floors, but we were towards the top and hot air rises. After a warm shower, the room was pretty warm and opening the windows didn't help much.

The hotel is well situated near the lake, right on a subway line and near a station, and 2 stops from the main train station. It is also around the corner from Hunan Road - a major shopping area. We had them do some laundry which was rather expensive but convenient and returned the same day. BTW, it turns out a Fornet location is right around the corner on Hunan Road which is probably the cheaper laundry option - I just didn't know until it was too late.

The hotel in general is excellent, but I found the fixtures in our particular room to be a bit worn. Water faucets were loose, the bathroom door latch was near end-of-life, the room's door hinge was pulling away from the frame. It wasn't as impressive as the pictures I've seen online. The details were a bit lacking... Would I stay here again? Yes.

I can recommend this hotel by reasons as below,
- Very convinient; 1 minute from an exit of subway. You can easily move from and to Nanjing railway station and South Naning railway station which superexpress trains stop.
- Good neighborhood; There is "Hunan" road near this hotel where is one of the two downtowns of Nanjing. The other one is "ShinJieKou", where is at only three or four stations by riding the subway.
- Good neighborhood; Near this hotel, there is a big lake and park, called XuanWu lake, where we can see beautiful seaneries.
- Good cost performance; This hotel is not so expensive as other five star hotels, and clean enough for foreigners.

As the result, this is not the first class hotel, but worth for staying.

Firstly arrived with surprised location which facing with Xuanwu Lake.
Lobby was great with warmly welcome atmosphere to the new guest for the first step.
There were plenty of helpful staffs though we have a problem with language, but not a problem for communications.
Room was spacious with fully equipped to complete all you needed during your overseas trip.
No review for hotel foods since food court just a minute walk to explore.
For shopaholic, local brand shops are waiting for visitors to enjoy their fashion design.

Overall, I will definitely stay to this hotel again for my next trip in Nanjing.

Stayed here July 16, 2013 to July 18, 2013. Great hotel Staff are friendly and helpful and speak reasonable English.

I booked a superior room and my booking came with one free breakfast. The price was $100.00 Canadian a night and well worth it.

Room was clean with fresh bedding and the usual room amenities and free Wi-Fi ( just ask the front desk for the password ).

Hotel had an indoor pool which was most welcomed after the heat of the day.

Near the Xuan Wu Lake Park, a must see, and the Dragon bridge pedestrian area which is also a must see, especially at night

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: get a room with a view of Xuan Wu Lake Park

The location is excellent near the cross section of two major streets and also near the lake. The rooms are not too large but comfortable. The swimming pool, gym and spa are great but the expensive buffet dinner was a disaster. We reached around eight thirty and realised that we were scraping the bottom of the dish. The buffet dinner cost 200 yuan approximately and was bad. At nine, the staff almost shut down the restaurant even with us still sitting there.

Room Tip: Please select a lake facing room if you book online.

The hotel is located in a superb location with a great view of the lake and the sacred mountain.
The restaurant (breakfast and dinner) is round and offer a great view of the entire city.
The local Metro line is right next, an the train station is only two stations (5 minutes by Taxi) away.
The staff was very helpful, in particular they purchased a train ticket for me (for 20 Yuan =~ 2.5 $)
The room was great and compfi, In the morning I just stepped out and straight to the islands in the middle of the lake. great choice.

Stayed at Lakeview hotel for two nights. The rooms are nice and spacious with good wifi connection. The breakfast buffet has an excellent spread and very tasty food. The view of the lake from the revolving restaurant is amazing. The only problem is that a lot of staff, including reception staff don't understand English. To ask for an Iron and table, I had to make 4 - 5 calls to different people until one of them came over to my room and I had to show them what I was asking for. Otherwise, at RMB 650 per night, its a good place to stay if you want to walk just 300 meters in the morning and reach the lake side.
