Pod Inn (Hangzhou Xihu)
Ranked #84 of 2,443 Hotels in Hangzhou
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Room was very small but clean enough however it only a very tiny slit window so very dark . The twin room meant bunks beds which is a bit strange for adults but beds were comfy and clean. Room came with two PCs which were useful. Location is good, close to lake, bus stop and cycle hire scheme. Bus goes direct to train station from close by.Price went up on the weekend and the cost of hiring bikes from them is extortionate! Has a fun, young vibe and I would recommend.

Room Tip: No smoking floor was ground floor but we had no problem with noise

Reviewed 7 June 2012

We stayed in pod Inn Hangzhou on the 4th June 2012. The location is good, about 30 minutes' drive from Hangzhou railway station. Taxi fare is around RMB25. Bus stop is 500 meters away, and 7-8 minutes walk to Xihu area. Standard double room (RMB161/night), is very small, a bit squeeze for 2 persons. No free disposable item. Only small towels are provided. But the cleanliness of the room make us felt comfortable. The outlook of the hotel is attractive, with the colour of orange and white. All the staff are young and polite. They will greet you and give you a cheerful smile whenever you meet them during your stay. The next day, from Pod Inn, we took a taxi to Xiaoshan Airport, paying RMB115. Pod Inn will be a good choice for you and me who are looking for a budget hotel.

Strategic location, just around Xihu area, but a bit off the main road. Room is super super small, but hey it's okay as I'm just single traveller. The room is geared toward young people, with LCD TV inside. However, receptionist is not speaking English at all ! Quite difficult to ask information around Hangzhou area

They call it "Pod Inn" for a reason, the rooms are small but the value is great (you even get a PC with free broadband in your room!) The hotel atmosphere is very trendy and geared toward a younger clientele, and aside from the linoleum tiles in my room starting to peel up, the stay was uniformly positive. A great choice for travelers on a budget.
