Jixian Pavilion in West Lake at Twilight, Hangzhou, China
Huachen International Grand Hotel, Hangzhou
- Central urban location with rooftop views across the city
- Modern, stylish accommodation and common areas make this a great hub for Hangzhou sightseeing
This Chinese-style international hotel is settled into the hustle and bustle of central Hangzhou, but is only a 10 minute walk from West Lake.
The sweeping curves and modern décor of the grand lobby welcome you in as the storeys stretch away above you. Huachen International Grand Hotel offers spectacular, sky-scraping views from many of its rooms, where the cityscape is laid out in front of you, at night, a collection of blinking, colourful lights like fireflies speckled across the night sky’s canvas. These awesome urban views are also available from the restaurant, on the hotel’s 19th floor.
The 'Four Seasons' Food & Coffee House offers Western-style cuisine in an all-day buffet, with views out over the city and to the majestic pagodas, water masses and lush greenery of West Lake.
If something with a local flavour tickles your taste buds, the hotel’s Tang Palace Chinese Restaurant is the place to head, serving up specifically Szechuan and Hunan specialities in a cosy, traditional setting. To whet your appetite, head first to the bar, to begin the process of unwinding after an exciting day of sightseeing and exploring this region’s extensive attractions.
Those fantastic rooftop views across the city and towards the lake beyond highlight the joys of being city-bound, but so near to Hangzhou’s UNESCO attraction - West Lake – and its pagodas and temples.
