Exceptional service and value”
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!”
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.
Great location and service”
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 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”
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”
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.
Absolutely Fantastic Hotel”
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!
A fight for my breakfast”
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.
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 hotel with sea views and very helpful staff”
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.
wyndham hotel is new with a great location, just minutes walk from zhongshan lu the main artery in downtown xiamen. buffet breakfast is good, but it looked very nice. the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, with modern amenities. the bathroom is clean.
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.
Good service and big room”
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”
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.
hotel room is big”
very nice hotel, only 5-10 minutes walk from zhongsan road and boat to gulangyu. the room is big and facilities are quite new. the breakfast is not that exceptional compared to other hotels in xiamen. quite expensive hotel. if got the opportunity would like to stay there again
Great Hotel exceeded our expectations”
the executive suite room size was big, definitely exceeded our expectations for a hotel in xiamen. breakfast buffet selection is good, however the food selection in the executive lounge isn't great. if you arrived around 7pm, there is no food left, if you ask for some, the hotel staff says there is only 1 round of food served for the whole day. i tried to ask for a salad dressing since there isn't left, they said only 1 bowl per day. can you imagine to have the greens without the dressing? overall, hotel is great. will definitely come back.
Nice hotel in a great location”
Overall, I had a very nice stay at this hotel. Getting taxis in Xiamen is usually a nightmare, but this hotel was able to assist with getting taxis within minutes. The staff was friendly. The location is the best part. It's only a 5 minute walk to Zhongshan pedestrian street and the ferry to gulangyu island, but manages to feel quiet and serene even though it's so close to some very touristy areas. My only serious complaint is that the room was way too hot. I changed the thermostat to be as cold as possible, but it did not work. They had a pretty good variety at breakfast. If it weren't for the stuffy rooms, I would definitely go back.
Best New Hotel in Xiamen in 2011”
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.
Gorgeous views, great location”
i spent a weekend here after finishing a grueling business trip to several asian countries. i selected a deluxe view room and was not disappointed by the sweeping view of the harbor and gulangyu island. the hotel is very close to the old area with colonial architecture, shopping and food streets and was a very convenient base from which to explore xiamen.
