“Current state of East King Business Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2010

I lived at this hotel in 2008 and had great memories of high quality ammenities (ie. pool, gym, steam/sauna). I have returned and to my dissatisfaction, the hotel is not being kept up properly. The locker rooms are disgusting, the pool is not well kept (no chlorine & roof is leaking) and many machines in the gym are broken. Promises are being made that this will be fixed but knowing the managment I doubt it will happen. NEED MGT CHANGE!

I love this hotel. And I found it quite by accident. I was staying at the much-hyped Friendship Hotel around the corner but felt quite strongly that it wasn't good value for what I was paying. So after one night there I went for a walk around the block looking for an alternative and wrote down a couple of other options. I saw this lovely imposing-looking hotel tucked away just off Pinghai Road, and when I looked it up on ctrip, the rates were quite reasonable.

I booked the most economical city-view room, which cost 368 per night, which included free internet and breakfast. When I arrived they told me they only had a king, which didn't really suit me, my sister and her son, so after a bit of a song and dance in my broken Chinese, they gave me a beautiful corner room with a pullout sofa. The room was stunningly huge - with floor to ceiling windows, a desk, dining area, lounge area and small kitchenette. There was no tub - only a shower, but even the bathroom had a window, which let in a lot of natural light.

The place has a very Chinese feel to the way it is run. You get the sense there that it doesn't see a lot of western tourists (which is probably why the room rates are so reasonable and why it is such a great find), but it has everything I wanted and more. The gym and pool were lovely, there was a huge outdoor terrace area by the gym, and breakfast included a modest selection of cereals, fruit, custom-made eggs and some Asian offerings. Best of all, right at the foot of the hotel, there is the sizeable Wushan night market that sets up every evening. It couldn't be more convenient to pop out for an hour of hard bargaining and then saunter back up to my room. And of course, being right off of Pinghai Road, it is well situated for access to the lake, and is close to many decent restaurants in the downtown core.

This is a great find in Hangzhou - it has the right location, amenities and price. The only real drawback is the lack of English spoken, which wasn't a big problem in the end, as the staff were quite eager to help.
