We checked in to the Best Western Premier Hotel in Hangzhou as we needed an over-nighter as our main hotel was booked on that day. We arrived by high speed train from Shanghai at the Hangzhou railway station. It was an impressive and comfortable 40 minute ride with the train reaching 301 kmh frequently.
The hotel was located about 20 minutes walk from the train station and so we decided to walk there. We turn right from the station exit and walked straight for about 20 minutes along a park and then lo and behold, the hotel was tucked away on the left in a side street.
The check in was smooth and the room was impressive and big, like a mini suite with separate areas for a King sized bed, a large well appointed working desk with high speed broadband and a lounge area with a Cleopatra lounge. It was comfort plus.
The breakfast was good and affordable at US$8 per pax with a reasonably good spread and service was excellent throughout the hotel as is typical of Chinese hotels and hotels in Asia in general.
The best thing was the room rate which at US$50 per night is a steal when compared to US hotels of similar class. When we factor in the US$1.50 taxi ride to get into town and the picturesque Westlake, it still represents tremendous value to stay at this hotel. China itself is a great value destination for American travelers! We felt safe at all hours and some of the tourist sites are just incredible! Food and hotels are so cheap and affordable that the savings more than covers the price of the air tickets!
