My room was spacious and well-appointed. I liked having a small kitchen and washer-dryer. Cabs were readily available as was the requisite Starbucks. Sunrises were magnificent! Indoor lighting was not quite as easy to use nor as bright as I like. I would definitely stay again.

The rooms are older and much larger than modern rooms, but well maintained. Ours had a large balcony facing the front where the lake was, but trees blocked the view. Rooms facing the back of the hotel might be quieter, though not sure of their view. The bathroom was well appointed and the sheets/towels good quality. Location is wonderful, right on the lake. It's a nice walk to the other side where the restaurants are. Tea farms are an inexpensive taxi ride away.
We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights, and staff there have been more than willing to accommodate our requests. The hotel may not be located right in the middle of the city centre, but conveniently close to bus transportation and scenic hotspots, which I prefer.
Would definitely recommend the hotel.
We went to Hangzhou on business and booked the east hotel because of the reviews on expida
The hotel certainly did not disappoint with fantastic beautifully appointed rooms and foyer,the lifts are an experience in themselves.
Whilst the location could be considered a bit away from Hangzhou's main attraction the West Lake, it only took us about 30 mins to walk there and the location allows for a stroll along the Grenshan canal which is highly recommended
Whilst the amenities room and location are worthy of a four star rating (although those looking for a work out in the gym should stay clear ) what tips this hotel
In five star territory is the brilliant staff,they are some of the most professional,pleasant and helpful people that I have encountered in my travels and they make staying in this hotel a fantastic experience, highly recommend.
