“Wake up call by school kids, great location!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

IBIS Xiamen is located just perfectly for a city trip is this Chinese city. The hotel is near the train station.

Rooms are rather small, but equipped with what you need for only sleeping. Hotel is just next to a school, and those kids might wake you up if you like to sleep longer than 7.30.

Staff is friendly and speaks 'so-so' English. Overall okay hotel.

The Ibis Xiamen Kaiyuan hotel is just 5 minutes away from Xiamen BRT Stop / Xiamen Train Station. Something to note is that as of July 2014, Xiamen Train Station is closed for renovations and there is only Xiamen North (Xiamen bei) Station operating now. It costs 3 Yuan and takes about an hour on the BRT from Xiamen Bei Station to Xiamen Station.

Location wise, the hotel is centrally located from all the main attractions in Xiamen - almost everything is a 30 minute bus ride away and the bus stop isn't too far away. There is a lot of shopping and restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel. A McDonalds Snack Bar is located right outside the lobby and several fast food restaurants in the building next door.

My room was minimally clean, not exceptional but still acceptable. There were stain marks on the walls and the shower taps were a little bit dirty but the bed was clean. All the usual amenities that you'd expect from a hotel are provided (toiletries, sandals, towels, etc). The rooms are not huge, but its just nice for two people.

I had two main issues with the room - the air-conditioning was working only sporadically which caused the rooms to get really hot then really cold and the shower holder was broken and couldn't hold the shower head.

WiFi is provided in the rooms, rather than just in the main lobby. There is also a LAN Port in the room and LAN Cables provided if you prefer connecting via cables. TV has plenty of channels, but only one or two in English.

The staff were basically there to do their job and weren't exceptionally helpful.

Overall, this is one of the more disappointing Ibis hotels I've stayed at. It is definitely not up to the usual Ibis standards. I would pretty much say that the main benefits of the place is that it is a cheap brand name hotel at US$30/night and the location is good.

Room Tip: High floors, away from the BRT is good

Good location but too noisy during daytime because of the noise from the school at the back of the building. Staff could not speak english well. Difficult to ask or complaint. Quite near to moslem and halal restaurant. All tv channels arein chinese.

Room Tip: Do not pick the room that is facing the school of you need daytime rest or sleep.

This is my second review of the same hotel.
The hotel staff remains professional and friendly.
The issue I had this time round was of the hotel policy of switching off the air conditioning during spring regardless of temperature. I was sweating profusely in the room, had to call the reception to request fo a fan and that was refused politely due to hotel policy.
I was unbearable that night.
And the worst part was, the train station is closed for renovation. I specially took a $100, one hour ride to stay in this hotel due to my previous experience and of it's location where I could have easily stayed near the airport or the pier where there are more eateries and shopping.
Not going to consider this hotel throughout Spring and Summer.

Room Tip: Avoid during Spring at all cost unless the hotel policy changes. Xiamen is relatively warm during Sp...
