Staff, location, amenities

Conveniently located - approximately 15-20min from the airport; walking distance to the Gulangyu ferry (5min) pier as well as Nanputuo Temple / Xiamen University (30min.) and a major shopping district (5-10min).  Professional, personable staff - happily catered to and remembered our every need (including dietary requirements) throughout our stay. Very clean, well-appointed rooms - spacious and modern, including complimentary bottled water (daily) and complimentary wifi Internet access (anywhere in the hotel, including the gym/pool area).  Well maintained facilities - Indoor swimming pool, full gym (cardio equipment, weight machines, and free weights), spa, numerous restaurants, lobby bar (with live music in the evenings), gift shops, etc. Overall, we'd give the Swiss International, Xiamen 5 stars!

Top rate hotel with top rate service!”

The location of the hotel is perfect for all Xiamen tourist features;we had amazing service both prior to arrival with excellent tourist assistance and during.

I cannot praise the staff at Swiss International Hotel enough. I had enquired prior to our arrival for tourist assistance regarding Kinmen, the Taiwan owned island not far from Xiamen. Sadly an English guide was not located but I am confident that if there was, the Swiss hotel staff would have located them. It was a special weekend trip for my husband and I, and made so much more special by the quality of the staff and the service we were treated to - Upon arrival we found we had been upgraded to one of their best suites that came with Executive Club benefits. Just amazing! Thank you Sara, Aaron and Lucy. TIP: You can catch the ferry from the Dongdu International ferry Terminal to Kinmen very easily. Cost was 320RMB for 2 and took 1 hour. Immigration and customs no fuss. I would recommend if you can prearrange an english speaking guide prior but if not go to the Kinmen Tourism Bureau upon arrival. There was a very helpful staff member who spoke enough English to assist. She managed at very short notice to locate a car and driver to take us around the island at a cost of 400RMB per hour. We told the tourism staff member where we wanted to go and she wrote it out for the driver. Would suggest Master Wu's knife factory, Guningtou War Museum, Zhaishan tunnels, Juguang tower in the Shuitou village and also taking the time to look at the shelled houses and buildings, all still bearing scars from being bombed. Fascinating history and a beautiful island. We didnt visit but met the owners of an irish pub called White Lion Café Pub, which sounded fun.

Hotel is exceptional ”

Swiss Grand Hotel is located to an ideal location for tour bus pick up in front of the hotel and 5minutes walk to Zhong Shan High Street. We have breakfast in Zhong Shan Road, one of them is HuangZehe Peanut Soup Shop (黄則和花生湯店), this old local food stalls shop is build in 1945. We like the peanut broth with egg and without egg, Seafood with hints of peanut noodles (沙茶面) which taste like our prawn noodles in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Besides these two local food, they also sell some dim sum, fishball soup (鱼丸汤) , soup noodles, fried meesua (廈門炒米粉), old ginger duck, oyster omelette (海蛎煎), spring roll (春卷), oyster mee suar (海蛎面綫), etc. This hotel is facing Gulangyu (Gulang Island), thus we can see the beautiful night view of Gulangyu. There is a playroom for young children where hotel guest is allowed to bring their child to play for an hour. There is table soccer and snooker for teenagers or young ung adults. The Chinese Restauran serve good Minan food and sell good coffee beans.

The hotel is nice, near major attractions, such as Gulan Yu, Xiamen University, Nan Putou tample, Zhongshan Road etc. Great location, clean room, hotel staff are very friendly, and very good service. We had our breakfast in this hotel for 4 days, no much difference on the food. The breakfast was poor, below expectation.

Excellent indoor play area for young children.”

My daughter enjoyed the indoor play area where the hotel offered 1 hour free play for hotel guest. We enjoyed the coffee at the coffee lounge. The room was clean and quiet. There isn't any smoking smell in the room. The hotel is very near the beautiful Zhongshan Lu Pedestrian Street, about 10-15 minutes walk where you can have Huang ZeHe Peanut Soup Restaurant which also serves local delights for breakfast. The Chinese Restaurant serve good Chinese food which includes Xiamen food. The coffee house serve good variety for dinner buffet with drinks. Hotel staff were friendly and able to speak English. We were able to pay the bills with Visa or Master credit card.

Excellent location in Xiamen. Only 20 minutes away from the airport, walking distance from the Xiamen High Street (Zhongshan Lu) and the ferry station to the historic Gulangyu Island. Perfect place to stay for vacationers. The rooms are spacious with a relaxing atmosphere (especially if you have a seaside view) and the service rendered is attentive. The breakfast buffet serves both Asian and continental dishes comprehensively. Has a lovely indoor pool as well!

Perfect location for exploring Xiamen”

Upgrade to a lovely suite with the benefits of the Executive Club Floor, proximity to and view of Gulangyu,

Our stay started out on a positive note before we even arrived with advice that we had been upgraded to rooms on the 28th floor with use of the Executive club. My suite was clean, spacious, nicely decorated and with great amenities, and my friend was even more effusive about hers which was even larger! Staff on the Executive Club floor were attentive, friendly and helpful. My only criticism (and I think it is minor, given that we didn't expect the upgrade in the first place) is that the evening buffet finishes at 7.30pm and having arrived late due to flight delay it would have been a nice touch if something apart from peanuts could have been russled up. The hotel is in a great location, convenient for taking the ferry to Gulangyu and a short taxi ride to the Botanical Gardens or Xiamen University. The hotel pool and gym looked good, although I didn't actually use them. Food and drink in the lobby bar was reasonably priced and generally nice, but have to say we were disappointed with the chicken and mushroom puffs, which took 30 minutes to appear and contained plenty of puff but virtually no chicken or mushrooms! One possible drawback for non-Chinese speakers - the hotel is unable to provide an English tourist map of Xiamen, and it seems this problem is widespread as we also asked at tourist offices without any success. That being said, the locals were helpful enough when we used our poor Chinese skills to seek directions on several occasions and we managed to get where we wanted to go, even using the local bus to the Botanical Gardens. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

Near to Zhongshan Lu”

location, big room and cleaniness

The hotel is located near to Zhongshan Lu where there are many shopping centers, snack shops and restaurants. It's not that far to 2 of the main sights (Nanputuo Temple and Xiamen Uni). Less than 15 rmb taxi fare. A taxi to/from the airport costs around 40-60 rmb (depending on the traffic). It is just opposite Gulangyu Island so request for a room with that view. However for foreign tourists like me, we are only allowed to use the opposite harbor after 6:30 pm. The harbor is for domestic tourists. Please take a taxi to the Dongdu international harbor if you would like to visit this island. I am happy with the amenities provided - a large toilet, large room, large screen television and comfortable bed. Easily fit 4 pax for a 2 pax room. A sofa bed is also provided. The breakfast was okay, not that great but certainly satisfactory. However, the staff needs to improve in managing the queue for the breakfast buffet when there is a large volume of guests. I was there on last Saturday and there were guests cutting queue because they have to attend a seminar in like 30 mins time. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my stay but not blown away.

wonderful room, great varieties at breakfast, near shopping street
room facing the dock could be noisy

My husband and I first stayed here on the very first day of our study trip organized by a Singapore ceramic society. When we have to come back to Xiamen to wait for our flight to Bangkok, we decided to stay here again because their breakfast was very good. After 10 days in small towns a good western breakfast is something we look forwards to. On our last morning, we came down to breakfast quiet late about 9. "Breakfast for two please," I told the receptionist. She answered me in Chinese-with a shade of contempt for a black hair person not being able to speak Chinese. "Sorry I cannot speak chinese." Her response to that was "Sorry we are full." I pointed to several empty tables but the girl stood her ground and told us "No- we are full." She did not even try to help us find a table nor does she offer us a seat to wait. After more than 30 years of traveling this was the first five star hotel that throw us onto the cold wet street of Xiamen on an empty stomach. I went down to tell the front desk manager as much. Well after that we managed to get our breakfast and were treated like VIP. The German manageress and her team were wonderful. Without them I would give a 1 star rating to Dining because we did not manage to get into the breakfast room.

Absolutely Fantastic Hotel”

Proximity to Tourst Attractions, Great Pool/Gym/Large Clean Comfortable Rooms/Friendly English speaking staff and great restaurants.

Stayed 4 nights. Rooms were large, clean and with comfortable beds. Fantastic in-door pool and professional gym. Staff extremely friendly and ever ready to help and can assist in English if you don't speak Mandarin. Great restaurants and conveniently located to all the tourist attractions and easy access to the airport. I had a fantastic time and if you are unusre about where to stay in Xiamen I can guarantee you its value for money at the Swiss. Am definitely coming back!

Exceptional”

I was booked into the Swiss Grand for 3 nights with my family (2 & 4 year-old). The staff made our stay very enjoyable. Even with our limited Chinese the staff at the front (Molly) helped us with various questions and requests. The rooms itself was what you would typically find in a hotel in that range. I think the wall must be pretty thick as I didn't hear any outside noise come through. The hotel it well located near shops. The seaview is a must. Would highly recommend staying here.

Great hotel with sea views and very helpful staff”

Very easy to communicate in English. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and the rooms withsea views are fantastic.

i was in xiamen on business and the hotel is ideally situated close to town and to xiamen university, with whom my university is developing a partnership with. the staff were wonderful and it was very easy to communicate in english. when you telephoned any of the services, those answering the telephone answered in english knowing from my extension number that i was an english guest. the rooms are very well appointed and those with a sea view are excellent. i will always try to make sure that i book into this hotel when travelling to xiamen for business.

Great hotel!”

Very very spacious room. Price very reasonable

We had a great stay at Swiss inter hotel. The location is awesome. It was walking distance from the pier where you purchase and ride the ferry to the island. Also when you have children KFC, MCD and Pizza Hut is walking distance. Another plus point STARBUCKS, 5 min walk! All in all i would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Xiamen.

Great location”

Location, facilities, and service

I stayed here a week for vacation. This hotel is in an excellent location within walking distance of Zhongshan Road and many good restaurants. It is also a short taxi ride from the main business area. I would recommend an executive room with a sea view on a high floor. There is a fantastic view of Gulang island and the executive lounge is very pleasant. The only issues I had was with the air conditioning and breakfast. The AC would run hot but maintenance would come promptly when called and cold air would blow until the evening but then it would be hot again overnight. It seemed to be a problem in other rooms as well because some other guests were complaining about it. The breakfast had good quality ingredients but the preparation could use a bit of work. The pastries however were excellent. Overall a very good stay.

It's a nice experience to stay at Swiss International Hotels. The environment here is great. It's close to the ferry and the Zhongshan Street. Our booked room is very big with a great sea view. We feel greatly relaxed here. It's a good choice to stay here for vacation.

Beautiful hotel with beautiful view”

Location, spacious room, harbour view

This is one of the few hotels which are facing the harbor with an excellent view of Gulangyu island. This a truly international hotel with modern facilities, spacious room and good food. The seafood is very fresh, which is expected in Xiamen. The only unfortunate thing was that there were a lot of mainland Chinese tourists staying in this hotel, and mainland Chinese are known as chain-smokers! They smoke everywhere and the hotel staff didn't seem to care! In an international hotel like this they should ban indoor smoking. But, it seems like it's the norm for people to smoke in hotel lobbies in China.

Best New Hotel in Xiamen in 2011”

New Hotel with International Management

my stay in xiamen was really nice. hotel is good, and the staff is welcomed and taking good care for guest. even though the hotel is relative new, but it seemed very crowed. many corporate events taken placed in their ballrooms. lastly, this hotel is really 5 star international hotel, managed by western gm (many hotels in china, which called with chinese name always exaggerated their star value).

Great hotel fantastic location ”

This could be the best hotel to stay in Xiamen. The weather was raining most times during our entire 5 nights stay, fortunately we stayed at the shikara suite with club lounge access.Thanks to their club lounge staff, in particular Zoey, Krystal,Catherine and other staffs, we have enjoyed our holiday. However, not much can be said about the attitude of a male concierge on the first night ie. 5th March 10-1030 pm . He was pretty rude to say the least.
