“Great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

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!

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room on a high floor.

The hotel is quite ok and the rooms not the newest but clean and comfortable.The location is not bad but its sometimes hard to find a taxi. However, the service is definately below average. The staff seems a bit helpless and lost. They try but seem to be overwhelmed with the smallest requests.

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip and found it suited my needs very well and was reasonably priced. The location is a bit out of the way, but the hotel and the room was clean and suitable. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice and big. The breakfast buffet was ok – pretty standard to what comparable hotels offer. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. The only complaint is the location as it was a bit tough to get a taxi since it’s not on a major road.

I don’t know how well this hotel would suit tourists to Hangzhou because it is a 15-20 minute taxi ride to West Lake and the tourist attractions. But if you’re just looking for a place to rest your head – whether you’re in HZ to sightsee or on a business trip – that is clean, professional and reasonably priced this is a good option.

We stayed here because it was included in our tour package. It ticked all basics, so I don't have any complaints at all because we only stayed for a night. Room was clean, mattress was comfortable. All equipment worked well and they provided standard amenities. If you only need a place to sleep but still comfortable, then this hotel would be one of the choices.

Room was definitely on the smaller side and a bit dingy. For 3 people, it was a bit of a challenge with all our luggage and laptops. I checked out the gym and it was pretty freaky downstairs. No light and it was in the basement like a dungeon. Small treadmill and a few pieces of equipment and it was freezing cold. I ended up using the stairwell to do stair running for my exercise. Got a breakfast voucher as part of my tour package and breakfast was excellent with a buffet serving both western and traditional chinese meal. On the table with coffee machine, I took the small tin can of tea leaves with me thinking it was free. I got charged around $3USD for it.

Lovely room with all the amenities, at a great price (USD 59). Odd: double room comes with only one breakfast, so they collect 30 RMB for the second breakfast at the restaurant! Ridiculous. But, breakfast was excellent, and well worth it.
Location is odd, about a block to walk to any kind of main street. But there were all kinds of restaurants, in one direction the highend types, in another direction the streetlevel restaurants. It's not close to the famous lake (20 minute hot walk), but compare prices for closeness! The taxi driver did not recognize the name or address, so I recommend that you make a special effort to print out a map and/or the name and address in Chinese characters, in LARGE characters, as the driver had a hard time reading anything I showed him. We just drove randomly around the city center for a while until I noticed the BW logo on the hotel wall!
One oddity I must mention. We had an end room. The room actually jutted out from the end structure of the building, so that there was a big window beside the door, and another big window in the usual location, at the outer end of the room. Made for lovely ventilation, and lots of natural light. Loved it.
Also, the bed was beyond king-size; maybe emperor-size. Must be 8-9 feet across. Amazing!!

My tour group stayed here for 2 nights and we are very satisfied with it. Rooms are clean and well equipped with hair dryer, ironing board and weighing scale in the bathroom. Breakfast is good but you have to be there early as seats are limited. The hotel is located away from the main road. It is good as there is no traffic noise but may have to walk a distance to get to the nearest shopping place. Will stay there again.
