The hotel is probably the perfect location for tourists visiting Xiamen. It's situated just across the road from the ferry terminal to Gulangyu and also at the end of Zhongshan Road, which is where the night market is.
The hotel itself is very clean and well maintained. I booked a Business room, but I was a little disappointed to find that the room had absolutely no view, and as it was facing the wall of the next building there was no natural light at all. Apart from that I was quite pleased with the room itself. There was a comfortable three-seater sofa, but unfortunately no desk at which you could sit to work with a laptop etc. You would have expected that in a room that was marketed for business travellers. The minibar was stocked with free soft drinks and beer which were replenished every day. There is free Wi-Fi and wired internet, which worked fine. The bed was very comfortable, with good quality Egyptian cotton linen.
The only hotel restaurant I tried was the evening buffet, which cost CNY174 (about USD28). The food was reasonable quality, but is very much aimed at Chinese guests. As a westerner, I still found enough to eat, but I don't think I would have gone back a second time.
The English language ability of the staff was not so good, but they did try hard and were friendly enough. I had a late evening flight on my last day but they wouldn't let me extend my checkout beyond 12 noon. Maybe that was simply because they were fully booked.
There is a free shuttle bus to take you to/from the airport, which was nice to have.
