How to Get There
Me and my daughter visited Hangzhou for one day. When we returned from the Westlake we tried to get a taxi. After more then 25 taxi just would not stop we started to run late for our train back to Shanghai. We asked the personnel of this hotel for help. Even though we did Nog stay here they did there best and beyond to get us to the train station in time!! Thank you again people from the hotel.
I couldn’t believe that we had stayed in Shangri-La Hotel?! The hotel looks like 2-3 stars only! Please check the photos.
I had a very unpleasant check-in! There were 4 staff at the reception, two for each guest. I was queuing between them. When one of the guests walked away, someone walked in front of me from nowhere and the staff didn’t ask them to queue. (I know Chinese do that often, but since there were two staff for each guest, they should be aware and do something, instead of pretend they don’t see anything?! And made me continuously wait!)
Second, when it finally came to my turn, I gave them 2 passports and said we have booked 2 rooms. Ms. Kitty Cheng checked on her system and said she found one room only. I immediately showed her the 2 room confirmations on my phone. She refused to look and keep saying she found one room only. I said can you please look up and check the confirmation numbers. She never look up, no eyes contact at all!! After triple checking, she finally found it on her own and yet didn’t look to us.
We put our luggage in the room and immediately headed off to meetings and came back at night. I complained to my assistant of booking such an old hotel, she said she at least get me a “mountain view”... well, the hotel put me on the second floor and I can only see trees and ROOFTOP!!! No sight or shadow of the mountain!
The only thing I felt appreciated is the concierge/guest service. All of them are nice and helpful with great smile! Thank you!
Fantastic room, wonderful location, and and Carrie in the Horizon Club is the BEST. Super helpful, wonderful English, and I felt very comfortable.
The location is right next to all of the places that are worth seeing, many pagodas to view, and the local opera is close as well.
