The property is located just a few mins from the pier and many other shops. However, since it's in the beginning of the popular tour route, we could constantly hearing the loud speaker form the tour guide downstair from 7am, and crowds gathering till very late at night, so be prepared to stay up late and wake up early in the morning. Plus, the faucet was dripping all night that I just could sleep at all! Glad that we only stayed there for one night.

We stayed in the most high-end room "The Ocean Room" (300RMB/night), there're all the basics in the room (TV, DVD player, kettle with cups, toothbrush and toothpastes, shampoo). However, the entire room is quite filthy and the bathroom stink! We had to ask the cleaning lady to spray air freshener for us. The bed was as hard as hardwood floor still you could feel the springs pinching into your back. The funny thing is we could find a way to switch on the TV so we end went downstair to asked and it ended up we have to pay 200RMB deposit for the remote controller to operate the TV in the room. LOL!

Coffee is good in the cafe, but not cheap (US price, ~ $3USD for a cappucinno). The biggest attraction is those cats lying around in the backyard. Also, staff are quite nice too.

We actually quoted the price of a 4stars hotel on the otherside of the island, which would only costs 400RMB/ night, but the difference is HUGE! I don't know about others, but I would prefer spending a little more for a comfortable sleep and cleanliness.

To book the place was already a drama since you have to transfer money from a chinese bank account ino their bank account to guarantee the room booking, so if you are not resident in China, good luck, The reservation staff and also at the hotel speak hardly english. We booked a room for RMB 180,00 since all other were full. When we arrived the room was in a terrible state! Bathroom filthy with hair in every sink (shower and washing basin) and on the floor, the room was the same, hair all over the place, looked like cleaning took them 5min. You did not dare to walk barefoot anywhere! For RMB 180,00 that was far the worst room I ever stayed in China, Not even towels were provided and we got some after complaining, they stank mouldy. The bathroom floor was all wet, since water was dripping through the ceiling, they came to fix the problem, but when I entered the room to check their progress the "engineer" was smoking in our bathroom, so no manners at all. The hotel is also very noisy, since there is a long staircase to reach the rooms, A friend travelling with us stayed in an even cheaper room with shared bathroom, but you don't want to make use of them! Food is a massive issue on the island since we did not find any nice place to eat at all. Luckily at least Naya could help with that, menue was extensive and food served was nice. Also the little restaurant and garden attached to the hotel are pleasant to sit at night or during the day. If you should stay longer try the youth hostel just 50m up the road from the Naya, they also have good food. Unfortunately we did not check out their rooms, since we prepaid Naya. The island itself has very little to offer so don't bother staying for long. Its swarmed with chinese tour groups that come for the day and its difficult to get around, since they have no cars or bikes, They offer golf cars but they only take you to certain places, if you wanna get away from the crowds you have to walk for a while, since the island is not very small. All in all, if you are short in time, don't bother to stay here, better go the Hakka villages about 2,5 h drive from Xiamen, less tourists, very nice landscape and simply an interesting place to go to.

Gulangyu island in Xiamen is a popular place to visit. If you can stay there a night or two it is a bonus.

The Naya Hotel is in the old German consulate.It has a mixture of rooms, with dorms at 50rmb, standard doubles at 140 Rmb, and then some 'specialist' rooms from 220 to 350 Rmb a night. First night we stayed in a standard room. It was ok - clean and basic. Lots of hot water in the shower but no extras - not even a towel! The one problem was that it was at the front, so you are woken by the tour guides with loud speakers from around 815am!

Second night we moved to one of the special rooms - the 'islet' (280Rmb) (the special rooms all have names like 'wheat' , 'ocean' and 'garden'). They are much comfortable and worth the extra money. They have things like TV and DVD as well, and give you towels!

The place has a small restaurant. Breakfast is 20Rmb and includes a good strong cup of coffee and a egg and tomato sandwich (very good by Chinese standards). They also have simple meals such as 'chicken rice' - really Japanese style chicken curry and rice - I think many of their customers are Japanese.

Booking will be a problem if you are not in China / do not speak Chinese. You need to pay a deposit into a Chinese bank account - however I think if you are coming a week day you should be able to get a standard room without booking, and then perhaps transfer to a special room the next night. At least one of the staff members speaks English.

They also have free wireless internet - I'm using it to write the review! There are also other small places on the island to stay. Definitely worth spending a couple of days here.
