“No Complaints”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Stayed here January 24-27, 2014. We can't find anything to complain about. The breakfast buffet was delicious and has a variety if Western and Chinese breakfast options and is included in the price. Stayed high up with non-lake view. Service was great. I could get by almost completely in English.

Room clean and is a standard, basic hotel room you would see in a Sheraton.

Location is great. Looking over the lake and right by the heart of Xiamen.

Dinner is great. We had one of the VIP rooms for a night where the service is top notch along with the food.

It has a connection with Xiamen Airlines if that matters to anyone. Maybe you get a better price if you book flights with Xiamen Airlines or if you are part of their club or something. No idea.

One problem is their pool costs money even for guests to use. But considering breakfast buffet was including and for a lot of hotels in North America for the kind of Breakfast Buffet that this hotel was giving away would be around $20-$30 US. So it is hard to complain about paying I think $2.50 US for pool use.

Room Tip: Lakeview is more expensive. But I liked the downtown view because as a foreigner, looking at the hu...

I stayed in Deluxe Lake-view Room( 590RMB/night) for 2 nights in May.
The hotel located in city center, next to Bailuzhou Park, and I can overlook the Yundang lake from my window.
Breakfast is good.
Jinyan provides very good service and you can have comfortable stay with reasonable price.

Nice room, clean and well kept. Great value overall, compared to many hotels I've stayed at. Bathroom seemed a bit dated, but functional. Be prepared to not drink the water from the tap, but they do supply free bottles each day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Laundry service did an outstanding job for me. Restaurant was OK. There were some surprise western dishes, but predominantly Asian. If you're fine with the menu, there should be no problem. Free shuttle to the airport was also a nice perk. Finally, location was great for getting and walking, checking out nearby sights and a little shopping. There's even a Starbucks within a 15 minute walk.

My friend and I spent several nights in this nice property which gave me a warmness and comfort. Our room was at 23th floor with gorges lake view and non-smoking environment. The room is clean, new and meet my expectation of a comfortable room, great love for the super soft pillow and mattress. Housekeeping service is considerate and detail-oriented. Staff are friendly and professional. By the way, the breakfast is full of choice. In general, nothing in this hotel fail me.

Close enough ca. 20-30mins to get to and from the airport by taxi (taxi below CNY30.- one way). This Xiamen Airline hotel offers complimentary shuttle service too but the times didn't fit in with my flight schedule. Check-In service for departures with Xiamen Airlines available at the Hotel. I arrived early and room wasn't ready, but friendly english speaking counter staff offered me coffee and biscuits in comfortable coffee lounge. Rooms well equipped and comfortable, some Western TV channels. Breakfast was OK with some western food available. Staff and concierge spoke some English, were helpful trying to get taxis and gave good advice on time and prices to pay for each taxi ride. Free Wi-Fi throughout the Hotel.

Room Tip: Lakeside view rooms available for additional charge +CNY60 per night

China is a study in contrasts, and the Jinyan Hotel fits that description. The service and rooms are outstanding. For western tastes it is excellent, while the restaurant preserves a strong hint of Chinese cuisine, there are enough options to serve your needs.

If you only speak English, it can be a bit challenging, however the staff will find someone to solve your problem. China is full of surprises, so expect that to a small degree and be patient. Everyone was friendly and tried to be helpful. The rooms were outstanding in comfort and cleanliness. Plush towels, and comforters on the bed. Do not expect a western style top sheet, you won't find it. The bed was very firm but comfortable.

Western style toilet facilities (you won't find them in local restaurants and shops).very clean, and very nice overhead rain showers with hand held fixtures to supplement. Nice cotton plush robes and slippers are provided as well.

Laundry is readily available and very nicely done, fully packaged like a new garment when you receive it back. Pay attention to the laundry forms however as there is one for ordinary laundry and a separate sheet for dry cleaning. While the maid who came to pick it up within a couple minutes of my call, she had some difficulty in English. She was extremely pleasant and looked over my failed attempt to use the right form and quickly sorted it out and took care of it for me.

I needed a computer hookup, and didn't realize that an ethernet outlet and cord were in the room. I asked about wireless and in less than 5 minutes had a wireless router brought to my room. One more call solved the problem. Again, very willing and desirous of pleasing you, it just took a bit more communications.

The only negative I found was that I was unable to figure out the air conditioning, and the room was too warm by morning. I'm sure I could have gotten assistance, I just didn't take the time to ask.

All in all, deserving of a 5 star rating.
