Arrived at this modern 4+ star Hotel and was immediately struck by the level of attention of the staff. Check in went very well and quickly and in no time was ushered to a beautiful room facing onto the lake. The room had everything you could wish for and was obviously well set up for business travellers, as well as... More

The location of this hotel is very good. It is near the entrance of Xuan Wu Lake and an underground station. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast had many local and western dishes of uneven quality. The coffee was poor. The other Chinese restaurant was OK. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Hotel counter staff service is acceptable but they lacked local knowledge e.g. couldn't really advise how/where to take transport to other places outside Nanjing; difficulty in locating certain streets or landmarks etc. This can be...

Room is clean, and reasonable comfortable for 2. Adequate facilities: TV programs, wi fi. Nothing fancy nor luxurious inside the room. Worth the price. Carpet is a bit old, need replacement. Smart TV is a plus.

The hotel reception was fine, the rooms are good but just let down by the breakfast service. Breakfast at the rotating top restaurant was not cheap and the level of service plus the half warm breakfast fayre & empty juice containers were a big disappointment. I would thus recommend eating out on the street and give this restaurant a miss,... More

I stayed here after competing on a Chinese TV show and had already been treated very well by the production team for a week in a pleasant hotel near the airport. At the end of the trip, I wanted to splash out a bit more and enjoy a bit more luxury. Lakeview is a beautifully presented and centrally located hotel... More

I have stayed here before many times. Very nice hotel - but if you need internet: FORGET!! Cannot manage Facetime - not even voice - because of the POOR bandwith offered by the hotel!! My laptop locked up totally, trying to updates Windows. Outrageous. Management has done absolutely nothing to improve, in spite of previous remarks.soo disappointing.

Good location hotel, very easy to access to many interested travel places, close to MRT only walk 3-5 minutes. Staff can speak English well, good services and give advice when we have questions. Rooms pretty clean.
