Recent guest reviews
Hotel is clean and quite new. Nice rooms with good views of the lake. The lobby is a great place for a nice cool beer and meet people. Breakfast is quite a big spread of Eastern and Western. The indoor pool is cool with lifeguard on duty.
Very kind and friendly staff at front door and reception. Overall atmosphere in hotel is so good, buffet in 2nd floor is wonderful and full of choice, as well as famous Cantonese/Hong Kong dishes in 3rd floor. Room faces the Yuan Dang Lake and Bai Lu Zhou Park, good view and enjoy the sunset. Nice meeting rooms layout and service, good for business purpose.
A high-class hotel located in center of Xiamen city. Nice view over the lake Yandang Weihu. Large and well equipped rooms. Large bathroom with shower and bathtub. Breakfast with large range of different dishes and quick service. Rather well equipped gym.
The first thing you see when you walk inside the hotel is the beautiful lobby, very open en calm. There is a selfplaying piano which creates a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, allthough only a couple of them speak good English. I have had some difficulties to explain myself sometimes. The room is big with separate shower and bath. The length of the bed was 1.90 m and that is exactly my size so it was a bit small. Everything is very clean. The breakfast has an abundant choice of continental and Chinese dishes. Very nice quality of food. Besides they have 2 other restaurants; a German Beerhouse and a Chinese restaurant which is very nice too. I recommand this hotel to everyone who travels to Xiamen.
Stayed 3 night. Very good clean modern rooms. Beautiful room (2005). Excellent view. Close to clubs. Excellent staff. Fast elevators. Very big breakfast buffet with egg station and other Chinese stuff. Fruit section can be improved. Connected to a paulaner restaurant which was so so.
I stayed in this hotel in my recent business trip to Xiamen. Check in and out without sny hassle. The room was very good with nice view looking down to the look. Breakfast was very good with a lot of choices. I used the gym that was ok. Will choose this hotel in my next trip to Xiamen.
Fantastic hotel with all the frills of a 5 star. Check in was very fast and easy. We were upgraded to a room on the 18th floor which to me isn't really an upgrade if it's "only" a higher floor. But of course still nice. The pool is amazing (sooo long) and the breakfast buffet was delicious! The only minor detail to be improved is the enforcement if swimming pool etiquette and possibly also some anti-slip mats on the stairs leading up to the pool. But definitely, if in Xiamen, stay here!
Nice, friendly, sweet staff Good foods Nice lake view Comfortable and clean room Good facilities Professional and well trained people Convenient location Guests-concentrated orientation Reasonable price
Room: The room is modern and spacious. Bed is soft and comfy. (as opposed to some hotels that have hard beds) Toilets are modern. Cleanliness needs improvement especially in the shower room where there are signs of mold at the corners of the shower room (not too bad condition though, but do improve) Pros: The hotel has 3 restaurants, this is one of the major buy in for the hotel. I tried the Chinese restaurant on the 3rd floor, it is good enough). The hotel breakfast buffet selection is excellent - better than some of the 5 stars in Xiamen. Would I stay again? Probably - I do like the fact about the restaurants choices. Do note that the hotel is a distance from the airport, do make time to travel to the airport (Xiamen is extremely small but the traffic jams can make a 20 mins journey to an hour journey)
Positives - check in and out was quick and efficient. Gym was spacious and fully equipped. Right on the lake with spectacular views if you end up on a high floor. Negatives - most of the staff seemed to be new or lacked any training. Often they seemed to be busy checking their phone rather than doing their job. Pretty incredible to see a staff member (assume a manager) having their breakfast in view of paying customers whilst playing on the phone and occasionally instructing the staff! Have stayed in Other Kempinski hotels where the service have been excellent. Xiamen branch unfortunately has some ways to go.
