Nothing to fault here; it was just what it should be. Well-maintained rooms, great lake view, obliging service, excellent croissants at breakfast. A pity that the pool & fitness area were under renovation. For me it was great to have a Xiamen Airlines office in the hotel, and the staff there were excellent.

The location is great, there is bus stop front the hotel, many small stores and restaurant near by. It come with free breakfast.
The hotel stuff are friendly, but the hotel is little dated. The hallway have no AC, feel hot!

the room was spacious and very clean personel friendly very polite and helpful.The breakfast lay out catered mainly to the chinese and korean customers who made up over 90% of the guests.The breakfast layout for westerners had all the basic items.English was no problem with the check in staff.The hotel was a bit far away of interesting sites but taxi fares were cheap only between 10 to max 20 yuan.To tzhe airport about 37 Yuan.I did not see any restaurant of intderest near by.Opposite is a tiny supermsrket for beer water snacks.A branch of the Bank of china near by.Cross the wooden pedestrian bridge turn to the right than left after about 50 meter is a backery walk to the next crossing then turn right and after about 70 meter the bank is on your right hand side.This is a good hotel for business people who are on a diet.

Room tip: select a room with lake view

This Hotel is also known as Xiamen Lakeside Hotel. It would appear to be managed/owned by Xiamen Airlines. Situated in a very nice location in the center of Xiamen.
The staff is very friendly and helpful but with limited english.
Another great plus was the free Wi-Fi throughout the property!! Breakfast was plentiful for Asian tastes but limited to western plates.

They are offering a complimentary shuttle bus to/from airport.
Rooms are very clean with complimentary coffee and tea.
I spend two weeks there and I really enjoyed.

This Hotel might also be known as Xiamen Lakeside Hotel and Lakeside Hotel, Xiamen? It would appear to be managed/owned by Xiamen Airlines.

We enjoyed four nights at this property.

Unfortunately, our visit to Xiamen and the Lakeside Hotel didn't start too well.

We were a tad curious/miffed that the Hotel had not replied to our emails requesting details of our options for transfers from the airport? Well we understand that sometimes the gremlins in China can work in mysterious ways? Matters didn't greatly improve when on arrival at the Hotel when we were assigned a "non smoking" room on an otherwise smoking floor. Our protests eventually resulted in a change to a room on a designated non smoking floor. The delay of about 30 minutes was acceptable.

Oh, and the swimming pool was not in operation due to repairs/maintenance!! At the time of review this factor is still not noted on the Hotels website or on the booking websites?? Even in China this is not good, guys??

Come next morning we were fully acquainted with the property.

It is well located to the central district, ferry terminals, etc. The property IS lakeside and if inclined provides guests with a great option for the morning constitutional walk/jog.

Our room on the 24th floor was a good size with a (smallish) king bed with good quality linen although it might be described as tired. The bathroom was a little tight but the bath/shower (shower curtain) was serviced by consistently quick hot water...a big plus!!

Another great plus was the free Wi-Fi throughout the property!!

Breakfast was plentiful for Asian tastes but limited to western palates? This isn't a criticism, simply fact. Personally, with juice, cereal (limited), fruit (limited), pastries, toast, tea and coffee and an "egg station" we were satisfied. Frankly, I suspect this is a better outcome for us than Asian tastes might experience in regional Oz??

But for us, although the property was adequate, and I confess to booking on price, the Hotel's mostly young enthusiastic staff carried the property!!

Most had some English, some more than others, but whether you were fully understood or not the staff would consult with each other in order to accommodate your needs.

In particular, this made travel by taxi very easy and without stress. On one day we were able to book a taxi by the hour through the staff. All fares are very affordable and metered, we never experienced any issues with drivers.

And, yes we took the complimentary bus transfer back to the airport.

Yes, we got what we paid for and (eventually) we enjoyed the experience.

Would we stay at the Xiamen Lakeside on another visit?? That would depend entirely on the offers available at the time??

But thanks again to ALL the great staff!!
