浙江三立开元名都大酒店 in mandarin for those taking a taxi, as the driver may not understand. If you enjoy nice view, Rm 1023 is great, you can enjoy the view, read a book during the afternoon, as the sun direction is not facing you. Nearby do not have much thing, but if you take your time explore, there is park and stadium (see picture). It would be a nice place to cycle. If you need food and shopping, perhaps you will need to cab out further. For basic stuff, nearby there is one small convenience store about 5mins walk.
We stayed here for several nights, room was very big and had all you needed. Large bathroom with rain shower, great bed, coffea and tea making and great view from 26 floor, nice viewing lift to get there, just above is their lounge which is a nice place to have a drink. Breakfast has a wide assortment of everything, but not realy a lot of taste. The wifi was bad, just not working or hardly working.The rate was around 100 euro per night including breakfast for two which is fair, it is not that close to west lake, about 10 km which means a 30 minute ride by taxi.
Nice clean, spacious hotel room. Bathroom was large and had a separate tap for safe drinking water. The breakfast buffet was lovely and had a great assortment of foods from which to choose. The restaurant staff was pleasant. Enjoyed our stay here.
Very modern and comfortable stay at this hotel. The bathroom is very clean, with both a shower and a tub. The breakfast is really good here as well. The only downside is that this hotel seems pretty far from the downtown area, so it's a little far getting around.
As usual, never disappointed by a stay in a New Century branch. Very comfortable room, average location however. As it was after Chinese new year, it was kinda crowded, especially for breakfast. One bar and more dining options would not hurt.
Due to the Chinese New Year celebrations we ended up staying at this hotel which was a little outside the city centre. It was an okay hotel with nice rooms, although I first received a room on the 26th floor, where it felt like the previous guest had been smoking non-stop from check-in to check-out. Many thanks therefore to the reception staff for fixing me a non-smoking room on the 25th floor instead, where it was actually possible to breathe. The hotel seemed to cater mostly to Chinese guests, which probably explains that several of the staff didn’t speak English that well. The breakfast was okay, again catering mostly to Chinese guests. There is supposed to be free Wi-Fi, but it's almost impossible to get online. I would probably chose something more central if visiting Hangzhou again.
Yes, as said frames were pretty OK, but quality wasn´t as good. Need to say that room also was OK but kitchen didn´t meet expectations. Not only that food that I ordered in evening was late (not served at same time that colleagues) but it was also cold. In breakfast – yes there was plenty of Chinese choices – we still are in China but if that is called Chinese & international… Also in check in – I can understand if staff has difficulties to provide service or understand English, but if same happens once my Chinese colleague tries to solve simple check out issues then one may feel frustration… So frames & rooms – OK Food and check out no good. Definitely no business hotel, more like groups and families. Just like it appears to be – in breakfast.
From outside everything look perfect. When you got into the lobby still everything look fine. But once you get into your room and look for more details, everything not look well at all. They don't clean the room well, breakfast just ok.
First off, I will state that the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Aside from that, everything about this hotel is poor and I would seriously recommend keeping one's distance. In terms of the room, the TV channel selection was very limited, the wifi worked only 10% of the time and the shower was broken (it could not be kept in one position and apparently couldn't be fixed). It's far out from the city but I was here for a conference so the bad location didn't affect me too much. The service however is the worst thing about this place, totally untrained and rude staff with no functioning systems and some nonsensical aspects. For example, having to wait for 15 minutes for an aloof busboy to come to the room to type in a code just to make a domestic external call - every single time! All the more ridiculous because the hotel walls seem to to repel phone signal, even on the 25th floor. Making any request of reception or room service is nigh on futile as they will happily pass you from desk to desk without informing the next person of your request - even though I was speaking to them in Chinese. Limited and overpriced room food takes at least an hour and arrives cold with no apology. Genuinely this place is not fit to host anyone. Some of the rudest and most appalling service I've faced and I have been a business traveller around China for 4 & 1/2 years.
We stayed at this hotel in January 2013 as part of a China Tour. this was a beautiful hotel with crystal chandeliers that were fabulous at the entrance. The dinner at the restaurant was average and the cheese in cheeseburgers was unrecognizable. although the hotel is beautiful the view from the room was terrible. An old house in the back with basically a garbage dunp from the hotel that was just piled up. There is a KTV building attached to the hotel which is for male adult entertainment. I was up early and went for a stroll through thehotel and ended up in the building which was OK for an adult but certainly not recommeded for children. The decor is stunning and the costs to build must have been crazy so I went and got my girlfriend to show her the area and some of the entertainemnt rooms as it was early. Quite a visit in that some leftover party people were shrewn around and eventually there was a big beefy chinese guy that strongly suggested this was not a place to bring a woman. Overall though, a very nice hotel as long as you stay in the hotel. The glass exterior elevator is pretty cool too!
