Location is very close to mayhem that is the city centre of Hangzhou, yet it is surrounded by tranquillity. From about forty minutes to an hour from the international airport depending on traffic.
This property I am told is one of the first few international standard hotels that opened. Of similar vintage to the Shangri-la Hotel down the road. This is where the similarity ends between the two.
This hotel feels completely NEW! One would not realise that the property is old but for the fact that I was told.
The lobby is grand with both porters and reception being attentive.
The accommodation is located in 5 (or was it 6) tower blocks.
Corridors are bright and clean.
The room is not huge but is adequate size with all the necessary facilities one would require and expect of a 5 star property.
The bed is stupendously comfortable and I must admit to having a great sleep for the 4 nights I was in the hotel. The fact that the pillows were great helped as well.
Full amenities were there in the bathroom and these are of good quality.
Bathrobes and bath towels are all very fluffy and of good cotton.
There is a laptop size safe in the room which means you can put your 15 inch laptop in there if you needed to.
Breakfast had a great spread with a range of Western, Chinese and international foods available. The pastries are very nice.
I had the buffet lunch in here on one day and it was very good as well with a Japanese Sushi and Sashimi station apart from all the usual Western and Chinese selections.
The bar at the reception is good and staff generally very attentive.
Tried out the cigar lounge near Accommodation Tower 3 and this was alright though the staff here had to run to the bar at reception for all orders which does cause a little delay. But staff are attentive.
My package at the property had wifi included. Wifi speed was acceptable IF it worked. Problem is that one has to log in every 20 minutes when the system kicks you off. So this was an inconvenient thing.
Attended a conference in the hotel and all the food that was catered, staff attention and arrangements were magnificent and even better than many international hotel chains in China.
I would come back here to stay any time. It is a most luxurious location.
