There were a few hotels listed in booking.com that offered airport shuttle service. When I called and checked with those hotels, most only airport shuttle service started at 8am. Finally I settled with Xiamen Discovery Hotel as it offers free airport shuttle to and from airport as early as 6am.
Our stay in Xiamen Discovery turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.
Two professional bell boys at the airport holding our family name plaque greeted us at the arrival hall. The hotel is only 5 minutes away from airport. It is very new, according to the bell boys, It started operation on 25 April 2014. Discovery Hotel chain is from Taiwan and Xiamen is their 1st China branch hotel.No wonder everything in the hotel and rooms were spotless new and clean.
We had an Executive suite so that our two children can sleep in the living area. The 50msq room was able to fit in 1queen, one extra bed and a 3+2 sofa comfortably. Bathroom was huge with a shower room and huge bathtub, spotless clean.
We dined in its trademark Creative Taiwanese Dinning Restaurant. There are only VIP rooms in this restaurants. Guest were shown to respective VIP rooms according to the number of person in their group. It's really fine dinning experience with delicious dishes.
Our breakfast were sent to room at 5am as we need to leave early to catch our early flight. As promised by the hotel, the airport shuttle sent us to the airport around 6 am.
I would say this Taiwanese managed hotel is top notch (ichiban) customer service in all areas.
Highly recommended for airport transit and working trip in the software park area e.g. Lenovo company. This hotel is in a new development area, the nearest mall for shopping and dinning Tesco,is RMB 10 by taxi approx 2,5km away.
