            Room is slightly small but it is clean and comfortable enough. Location is the best option and the metro station next to this hotel is on the line that is just few stops away from city area. Will be back next time, price can be cheaper maybe.

            Great location, great service, excellent value
            Trouble free booking via Agoda. Excellent rate for 5 star hotel. The front desk was professional and efficient. They upgraded me to deluxe room with a lake view - fantastic! When I found the air con noisy, the hotel responded quickly, and change my room with a quiet and more effective air con on the same floor, with the same lake view. To get to the subway, turn right on leaving the hotel and the MRT station Exit 1 Xuanwumen, is about 20m walk, great for getting around on the clean, easy to use subway system. A train about every 5-10 minutes. If you are looking for a cheap and good food court, keep walking past the subway entrance to the main road, go down the under pass to the opposite side and just to left of the underpass is a shopping mall Nanjing YAOHAN with a good value food court in the lower ground level, and just 50m further on, there is a Paris Bacquette bread shop and a Starbucks. Yaohan Foodcourt has nice hearty beef noodle soup of about USD4. Paris Baguette is more expensive at a trendier USD7 per sandwich. Breakfast selection is reasonable, but the lake view from the 20th floor revolving restaurant is unbeatable. A superb way to start the day, with good strong coffee. Must see in Nanjing – Ming Tomb (USD11), Xuanwu Lake (free) and Sun Yat Sen Mausoleum (free) Take metro line #1 Metro to Xinjiekou, change to Line #2 to Muxuyuan station. Exit #1 with English sign "To Sun Yat-Sen Mausoleum Beauty Spot". At the large board of tourist map of Zhongshan Mountain National Park immediately outside Muxuyuan exit, walk on Ninghang Gong Lu (road). Turn left at Lingyuan Road & walk a few meters to arrive at the free Sightseeing Shuttle no. 1. Total = 5 minutes' walking.

            Lakeview Xuanwu Hotel is an excellent international hotel right beside the Xuanwu Lake in north Nanjing. With the MRT line connecting from airport thru. Nanjing south station, it is very easy access to the rest of the city. It's within walking distance of the many shopping Centre in the city and so many attraction and interesting places - such as Dr Sun Yatsen's Mausoleum, Xuanwu lake, Mochou lake, Presidential palace, Confucius temple and the new sport stadium as well so many sightseeing options from the hotel, i am recommending this Hotel for my friends as they are coming to visit Nanjing city for their upcoming trip soon.

            The location of the hotel is very good, close to railway station and Xuanwu Lake. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. The hotel is up to its five star standards. The only regret is that the room did not come with breakfast, and the price for breakfast is overpriced and there is no place to have breakfast nearby.

            Horrible treatment by staff”
            At check In, I provided the Agoda booking id, which clearly states I have already paid. The hotel staff there said their working agreement with Agoda has fell apart, and said they were unable to obtain the money from Agoda. This is obviously an issue between the hotel and Agoda, yet the hotel shifted the responsibility to us and said unless we paid them (meaning we would pay twice, first to Agoda, and again to hotel), they could not offer us a room. What a horrible experience ! We were tired from our journey, and just wanted some rest. They even suggested we cancel the booking (despite telling them we would incur cancellation fees) , and then pay them. This wasn't fair to us, but they didn't care. Finally believe they got to Agoda,.and they released the money, and they "happily" told us.the issue is sorted and now they could give us a room. Overall, a very bad experience and felt that we were being bullied by the hotel. No notice at all was received beforehand.

            The Lakeview Xuanwu is an excellent international hotel right beside the Xuanwu Lake in north Nanjing. Its only 2 stops on the metro from the railway station so very easy access and easy access to the rest of the city. It's within asking distance of the International Centre one of the mega shopping centres in the city and the centre of the city is only 3 stops by metro so location is great. By contrast within 5 minutes you can be walking by the lake and in 30 minutes you can be in one of the temples that look over the lake so plenty of sightseeing options from the hotel. You walk through the old city walls to get to the lake.

            The Lakeview is right beside the Xuanwu Lake and the metro stop - therefore great for getting around the city and for getting out of the city. The Lake is a great place for a walk - join the locals early in the morning - and you also have the added attraction of the old city walls to follow or walk on. You can walk around the Lake to the east side to get onto the Purple mountain and all the historical and archaeological sites there - or just enjoy the cable car ride to the top or a walk in clean air and in a forest environment with well marked paths

            The Lakeview is as it says beside the lake in the north of the city just 2 stops from the main train station. The hotel is a very comfortable stay with an excellent international buffet breakfast. Depending what your interests are you can stroll around the lake to Purple Mountain to explore the sights there or get the metro from the stop outside the hotel to investigate the rest of the city. The area near the hotel is vey busy as you have a main shopping street just south of the hotel and the new international centre next door.

            Next door to subway station, across the road from Xuanwu Lake, around the corner from Hunan Rd
            I chose to stay here because of its fabulous location and because I had enjoyed my stay here 3 years previously. Staff are friendly and very helpful, and the amenities first class. I had made an error in my booking and arrived a day early, but staff in reception were able to find a deluxe room for that night and the next (at such extreme short notice). I asked for a stronger bedside light to read by and it was changed immediately. The Western style breakfast provided by room service was well presented and cooked to perfection. On the downside, the deluxe room is now reduced in size by about half compared to what is was in 2009, and the movie channel had very bad reception, in fact it was un-watchable. But all in all, it is an excellent hotel in an excellent location.
