Tea Boutique Hotel4.0 out of 5.0

An oasis of calm and excellent service in a chaotic world. We unfortunately only stayed one night, but our room was spacious and excellently furnished. The bar is a great place to chill, with moderately priced and a wide selection of drinks and a surprisingly good mixture of sounds from around the world. My Negroni was perfect. Limited selection of wines by the glass though. We will definitely visit again.
Good location and all the rooms have a nice design but If you want a room with a view of the lake, that will not be possible because it only has 3 floors. The reception lobby is a little cold but you can get over it. In the room there is a master switch button which cuts off al the power to the room, even the plugs. If you push it, your phone won't charge.
By all accounts this place was reported as a 4.5 star hotel. Reality bites and 2 star rating at best. The Hotel entry floor is cracked and broken, it is dark, dirty, damp and musty. Staff are amateurs and untidy. One single very tired lift. Rooms are tired and very smelly. Not a nice place at all. I feel many of the reviews are bogus just to get you in and take your money. Photos are not true to like. Stay at your own risk.
I stayed again here and its actually quite a comfortable hotel. Its Shuguang Lu ( Shoe Gwang loo) on the other side of the mountain. Its actually just a few meters from the Walmart ( In the stadium) which also includes a litany of shoppes and restaurants. Many of them very local and worth trying Its also right across the street from the path over the mountain to west lake Now I did NOT have dinner here but it seems quite popular with the locals. I did have the breakfast. I know many complained no variety ( 4 choices) but with 30 rooms you cannot layout a buffet like 300 room hotels. The food is not bad and portions are pretty good (see photos) I also recommend the local restaurants on the path to west lake. One that is just inside on the roadway (near the hiking hotel) is good. Look its off the main road where the escalator takes you under the street. Its just north look for the bank and the building pictured. All and all this is great hotel that is reasonably priced, is small and local
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The room was really spacious and we were pleasantly surprised by the little extras like fruit bowl, Tiger Hill spring water in a jar and 2 free cocktails at the bar. There are 3 types of tea to try in the room. We also ate twice at the restaurant connected to the hotel. Highly recommend the squirrel fish, scallops and the beef and foie gras stirfry. We also tried a very interesting vegetable dish (pictured). On our first day we walked through a park (entrance directly across the street) to get to West Lake. It took about 30 minutes at a leisurely pace. On the second day we took a bus from the bus stop directly in front of the hotel to get to Linying Temple. It took about 30 minutes. Would definitely come back and recommend to our friends.
Hotel had had it's time. The rooms, however are nice. The rest is 80s... brown cockling carpet, peeling fassade, cracky floor at lobby, etc. Breakfirst is set menu with a small buffet part. Staff partly bored, partly friendly. Nice location at the part, however had some difficultiy to get taxi back to the hotel in the evening after dinner in town. Was rather expensive with 100 Euros per night, maybe better option in the town...
I stayed here last year and was not overly impressed by the staff. As with the last trip, the rooms are clean, and well appointed. This hotel is on Shuguang Lu and you can turn right, walk 25 m and the entrance to walk over the mountains to west lake is right there. Its just a short walk over the hill (15 to 30 depending on your climbing ability) with loads to see on the way. You emerge right at west lake A couple of restaurants on the west lake side that are local, and if you are brave enough worth it. I got a huge bowl of lamb soup and a local beer for 28 rmb. Two restaurants side by side. Look for the one with the pair of chickens on it ( on right side if walking towards west lake) This hotel, with the exception of the bus stop in front, is quiet with an extraordinary view of the mountains. Lots of little restaurants on the adjacent street ( turn right and the first major street on the right you will find small local places) I am glad I gave this hotel a second chance
We actually went there while wondering around the West Lake park for some nice food. We did not stay at the hotel. Service was not the fastest but the Beijing duck was quite nice. Crab is also another speciality of the house.
The best place we stayed in a three-month trip across Asia. Beautifully located on the West Lake, the hotel is decorated elegantly with a tea theme, three separate teas are provided in the rooms (which are more like suites with a small office area, sofa and open plan living space). It's a lovely place and the staff were incredibly helpful in organising things and writing down places in Mandarin to help us navigate. Cannot recommend it enough.
This hotel is a medium sized establishment situated outside of the city of Hangzhou in a quiet suburb near the West Lake. Makes an ideal base from which to explore the lake and other attractions in the area. The hotel is boutique with all the rooms furnished in traditional style, but with all the facilities you could need. On the road outside are a wide range of restaurants offering both Chinese and Western food. In the evening the village is quite lively and attractive. The staff were friendly and helpful, but don't expect a western style breakfast. We were there in winter, but in summer there is a nice terrace to relax on.
