Goethe Hotel in Hangzhou

I had a pleasant stay at the hotel. Would consider staying there again next time. Although it is centrally located, we did have a hard time getting a taxi from the hotel.........

Nice Hotel in Hangzhou - not 5 stars yet

Posted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: Nice lobby, good location for train riders.
Cons: Staff's English skills Internet Send the staff to the Shanghai Hilton to learn what a breakfast and restaurant service should be
Location: Not much in a 2-3 block radius, crazy traffic, one Burger King sign and some department stores under construction
Expensive looking hotel next to the train station. While I stayed there the hotel looked deserted. Lobby, bar empty. The staff spoke some level of English but not overly eager to engage the arriving guest. Silly me, I did not check if the building was smoke free or at least the floor. There was no smell of cigarette smoking in the room the floor was saturated with smoke smell. Ashtrays next to the elevator doors! The room is nice. The cable TV offered one (1) English language channel. For a moment of thought this was 1993! It was the "official Chinese" English TV language channel. It is pretty hard on those us waking up at 2AM. The Internet service is okay, but the band width is not enough for a Skype video call. The buffet dinner was okay. I cannot say the same for the breakfast. The restaurant does not open till 7AM. The food is not exactly "Western" as perhaps the name "Goethe" and 5 stars would imply. Bread or pastry were not available, the coffee tasted "instant". The staff had trouble with basic English. The infra red food warmer also decided to quit this Friday morning and at least 3 electricians were trying to find the source of the trouble.

Perfekt für Zugreisende

Hauptargument für die Wahl des Goethe Hotels war die Lage direkt am Hauptbahnhof (5 Minuten Fußweg). In den oberen Etagen gibts eine tolle Aussicht über die City und ggf. den Westsee. Das Zimmer war sauber und gut ausgestattet, allerdings nicht gerade stylish und modern (Gold, Gold, Gold). Freundlicher Service mit gutem Englisch.

Hotel Goethe - good stay for business

Posted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels
The Hotel Goethe is quite nice, the rooms are very comfortable with nice decor and the Wifi actually works unlike most other hotels in China, where Wifi means you have to plug the computer in. The gym is decent and the breakfast bar is good with a pretty view over the city. It's super close to the train station which is convenient for business travel. However, the neighborhood is not great for any sightseeing or restaurants so you'll have to hop in a cab and head to the lake for that.
