It is interesting that in the past decade each time I visited Hang Zhou I always stayed in this guesthouse. This hotel is very popular because of the fact it used to be the residence of Chairman Mao. The hotel itself is like a beautiful park since it is one part of the famous West Lake. The view is unbeatable! The hotel facilities are good but there is room for improvement in terms of services. Staffs are all very polite but lack of the sense of servicing the guests, which is quite common in China. There are not too much choices for breakfast buffet, since this hotel is not run by any international hotel management group.
