“Serene and gorgeous hotel, excellent service!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We loved this hotel so much that we spent loads of time hiding from the hot, humid summer heat in our room. The room was really well laid out and very stylish in a lovely, understated way. Big spacious bathroom. Big spacious bed. The service was wonderful. We had dinner one night in the restaurant and enjoyed it a lot. Enjoyed a drink in the little bar, too. Our only constructive criticism was that we felt breakfast ends too early (9.30am). And it would have been even better if we could have hired bicycles directly from the hotel so that we could easily get to and around West Lake (which is a cab ride, or a very hot humid walk of around 30 min, away). Overall, we were not blown away by Hangzhou or West Lake though. The city is pretty built up and busy, the lake is a bit overrated and the waterfront areas are a little kitsch. But a pleasant enough place to escape from Shanghai if you don't have time to travel further.

The Tea Boutique Hotel's exterior doesn't do it justice. Doesn't look all that much from the outside but the interior is superb. The rooms are nice appointed and roomy with a small sitting area and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have experienced in China.

The room has fruit delivered each day for you to eat which is a nice touch, plus there is free coffee and papers available on the second floor. The staff are friendly and helpful and all the reception staff speak good English which is a real help.

The hotel is just outside of West Lake so is well located and ir isn't the price of those located with the area.

I will definitely stay here again when I'm next in Hangzhou.

We stayed here for a few days before and after our trip Huangshan and really enjoyed it. Our room was stylish, very clean and comfortable, there was complimentary tea in the room and good coffee from an espresso machine in the business area.

The staff were really helpful and Jared was incredibly helpful even walking us to show were to get the bus to Huangshan mountain. See my other review for how that trip is quite simple. The other reception staff were also very friendly and willing to look up attractions and help us arrange to get around - the public buses are straight forward and interesting and the taxis were all good.

It is a good location right opposite the park which borders West Lake and the fun little theatre complex by the Yellow Dragon Cave. Turn right and within 5 minutes is a huge Walmart, McDonalds and Pizza Hut. More interesting local bars and restaurants are another 5 minutes further down on the park side of the road.

Spent one night here in May and really enjoyed it. Fantastic staff (the manager was especially terrific, very helpful with my group). Excellent restaurant, beautiful rooms, and the entire space has a simple, clean feel. Really well done. The city is very spread out, but the hotel has a good location close to West Lake, though it would be a long walk.

Room Tip: Second floor has a library space with coffee, reading materials, and a Mac to use.

Recently stayed at Tea Boutique Hotel for two nights. The property was selected due to proximity to West Lake (without being on the lake or having views of same - and paying the price!) as well as its tariff. We found the staff to be extremely helpful (sufficient English to assist us), the room very comfortable with a small sitting area and the location enabled exploration of Yellow Dragon Cave/hill just across the road with its early morning activities (fascinating) and a 20 minute stroll into the city centre. A supermarket nearby together with many small shops/bars/restaurants so no problem in eating off site. The Hotel had a restaurant (but we only had breakfast - just sufficient for Western tastes) and a small bar (lacking some atmosphere but we did enjoy a very good white wine). We did enjoy the smaller size of this property and found it a quiet "oasis" at end of touring day for a break between busy sightseeing and evening outing.

We couldn't fault this hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable with a great bathroom! The staff were very helpful in recommending nearby locations to eat and providing us with maps and arranging a taxi. We hadn't booked breakfast with the room but we ended up having the buffet breakfast at a very reasonable price. The location of the hotel is really great if you want to be near the lake and some good walks.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and were overall very happy.
The staff was very friendly and always keen to help.
The room was very spacious and we loved the wooden interior style of the room. There was a sofa with a table and a plate with apples and small tomatoes that was filled each day. There were different loose teas and beautiful tea pot and cups.
The bathroom was also very spacious with a big round bathtub with bathing salt, foam and all other toiletries.
The king size bed was very comfortable. There was an option to choose a pillow with flavour (ginko, lavender etc.), we were happy with the ones provided and did not test it therefore.
We tried the breakfast for one morning. You could choose between Asian, American and Healthy vegetarian breakfast set. We chose the two latter ones and got a plate with omelette, salad, sausage, fruits, toast and jam in French toast style and a cheese sandwich. No matter, you can still help yourself at the buffet with tea/coffee, toast, fresh fruits and pastries. It was really nice.
Location: the Lake is about 30 min by foot away. There is a Wal-Mart close by where you can also find some restaurant options.
For going into downtown where there are several malls, you can take bus no. 28 that leaves from the other side of the street just opposit the hotel. It costs you 1,5 yuan per person (just put the coins into the box when entering the bus in the front). Get out at the fourth stop.
