Tong'an Hostel
Ranked #16 of 474 Tongxiang B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 June 2011

I was surprised at first when I went to add a review and couldn't find this hotel as it is easily one of the nicest I've ever stayed in, in any country! Don't be fooled - the "Hostel" in the name is a misnomer. This is NOT a hostel - it's currently a 4.5 star hotel, undoubtedly on its way to 5 stars.

Although it's only four years old, the setting is that of an old Chinese water town and if you're not a fan of cookie-cutter hotels, you will definitely appreciate the charm of this place. Even stepping on the rare sagging floorboard gives you a feeling of pleasure that this hotel is so authentic to its location.

I was fortunate to get a suite during my short stay here - one living room and a bedroom with a king-sized bed for just one person - what could be more luxurious than space in China? The one less than outstanding part of my room was the fact that the bedding felt a bit damp when I went to sleep, but I suppose that's understandable when you're in a water town and I was quick to get over that one little flaw.

My friends stayed in another room just down the hall, but the views from both rooms were spectacular - both overlooked the waterway near the ferry entrance to the town. On the other side of the hallway outside our rooms was the pool. It was very large but the water appeared cloudy and I never saw anyone in it. However, this is probably due to the fact that most Chinese people are averse to getting a tan, so I didn't expect to see any locals lounging poolside. I wanted to get in myself, but didn't have the time to do that AND wander around town with my camera - in the end, my love of photography won.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for charm, luxury and affordability. Also, I'd advise going during the week rather than the weekend, especially if you're looking for an escape from the crowds that tend to appear at any Chinese destination on a holiday or weekend. You won't regret visiting this wonderful water town or staying in this fantastic hotel!
