Love this hotel!

I am not one for interior spaces in hotels - I find them mostly pretentious and a waste of real estate - but for some reason, I gawked at the interior of this golden globe each time I left my room. It is really something; maybe a cameo in a Bond-esque movie is in its future.

My room was massive, with a wonderful view of the river. I stood there and plotted how I would make Bond talk once I captured him.

Billy at the Front Desk stands out - he was willing to help on whatever matter he could, including walking me downstairs and showing me the best way to find a convenience store (as opposed to just rattling off instructions).

Beware, the area in which the hotel sits is a sterile CBD. There is nothing to do outside the hotel, but I was happy to stay put.

A modern luxurious hotel with unique architectural design located in the business district of Hangzhou.
Spacious rooms, full of amenities.
Magnificent river view.
A huge "Outlet" shopping mall with direct access from hotel premises.
An underground station 5 minutes walking distance.
If you have a properly located room, you can watch the incredible night Light Show directly from you room window.

The Golden ball took me by surprise. i figured it was inexpensive, business type hotel, so i did not do any research. the architecture is amazing. The rooms were very very nice and very clean. The service was also impeccable. the only drawback for me was that there were not good restaurants to choose from. i was there one night, and it was a Sunday night. the main restaurant was closed. The German restaurant had, literally, not a person in it. and all that was left was buffet....and I dont eat buffet. BUT, having said that, it was my only complaint.

Room Tip: room with water view.

Amazing hotel, beautiful rooms with great view, good restaurant, nice staff. Been there for a exhibition at ball room and all organisation was perfect. In the evening went out nearby the park for the fantastic water show and took a walk to the river. Nothing to complain about.

Positively surprised! First time to China and Hangzhou so I have nothing to compare with but I can only recommend the place.

Rooms: Had a room on the 17th floor so I do not know whether the rooms on other floors have a different layout because of the building design. Spacious, enough space for clothes to hang and put, bathroom big enough with separation for shower and even toilet. Clean and tidy, perhaps some years old but you really do not recognize this.

Breakfast: Mixture of Chinese, Asian and Continental Breakfast. Everything is available! Actually I think it is too much because you really spent time in looking what is offered instead in having breakfast...

Personnel: Here I have to tell that this was just more than perfect! Wherever you went you had been taken care of. I had due to accident even the support from the hotel that they joined me with one of their employees to the hospital for a check. This free of charge and without even asking or any discussion. Just helpful! Once again thanks very much (also special thanks to Roy who joined med to the hospital and was guiding me through the different dep. and translated - Big thanks)
