Nice ambience”
My taxi driver dropped me at the T junction and I walked in to the street to find this hotel not far from the junction. Very nice ambience and chill out in the cafe of the hotel. the hotel is old and need more maintenance, otherwise everything is fine.

Beautiful, quiet Hotel with good location”
Xiamen Books Hotel is a located in a elegant but old building. It has a beautiful garden, a quiet book cafe and is suitable for travelers looking for a scenic experience. The location is slightly hidden but within a comfortable walking distance from the busiest part of the Zhongshan Road Pedestrian Street. The nearest bus stop is only 2 mins walk away and can bring you to the vicinity of Xiamen University and Nanputuo Temple conveniently. Bathroom and rooms are also considerably clean for an old building. with towels and basic amenities all provided. I would strongly recommend this for casual travelers, couples or solo travelers looking for a secret and quiet hideaway. They also have a cat which is very friendly so do expect to be welcomed by the adorable furkid.

Highly recomended ”
This place is located in very convenient area. You can walk to Zhong shan pedestrian street and you can find many restaurants around the hotel. The room and the garden are very romantic and cozy. Bath room is very spacious. Which I especially liked is the staff. Only a few staff speaks english and I don't speak chinese. Even though they were very kind and helped me so much. I am sure that I will choose this place when I travell to Xiamen next time.

An excellent boutique garden hotel with personalize service! ”
Highly recommended hotel for couples and families that requires personalized service that you can't find in bigger hotels. It's located within walking distance of the main shopping street of Zhong Shan Pedestrian street. It's surrounding is filled with greenery in a garden setting. A well known seafood restaurant is just next door. I wish to record my thanks to the very helpful and kind lady boss who goes out of her way to help me locate my missing mobile phone which I left on the taxi. Thank you.

Romantic but needs some renovation”
Spacious Japanese style room. Walking distance from main shopping street. No breakfast on offer but many simple restaurants in the same street. Receptionist grumpy on arrival but later nicer. The garden could be wonderful if better care would be taken of it.

This place is cozy, well located, with character.”
The place is v close to Zhong Shan Road, with ample eateries around. Extremely convenient with a bus stop in front that takes u everywhere, at a flat fare of RMB1. One negative is that the place is moderately cleaned daily i.e. Bedsheets r not changed daily but new towels given.

Cute Loft Rooms”
Location, Quick Access to Main Shopping Area and Restaurants
Quirky B and B located a stone throw from ZhongShan Lu ( main shopping district in Xiamen). The rooms at the bottom floor were small 2 storey lofts while the ones upstairs were doubles. It's located in a quiet lane not too far from Zhongshanlu. While the room was clean and newly renovated, the beds were typically hard and the wifi was annoyingly slow. It took us a while to find the hotel since it looked like a dilapidated school from the front.

Good location, Nice deco with traditional touch
Very well located, close to pedestrian street and pier to Gulangyu. We actually managed to walk to the pier. It took about 20-30 minutes. The staffs are not very professional but did the job.

great location and lovely hotel”
location and decoration
It's a very lovely hotel. It's historic. The room is quite nice and warm. The service is also good. But agoda didn't communicate well with the hotel. I've paid through agoda, but it didn't show in the system. So the staff there asked me to pay again. It can be avoided for better communication. The location is very good. Very quiet there at night. At the same time, just a few minutes to walk to the most popular place, Zhong Shan Road and the ferry pier.

美しい庭と、洋館風の建物を持つすばらしいホテルです。コロンス島にはいいホテルがたくさんありますが、厦門島ではこのようなホテルは少ないので、たいへん貴重です。ホテルには猫が1匹おり、人によく慣れていて、夜部屋に入ってきて(1階の部屋だったので)一緒に布団で寝たのはよい思い出です。猫が好きではない人は部屋に猫が入ってこないよう気をつけてください。

失望!”
價錢相對便宜、位於市中心、check in 簡單快捷
也許我的評語並不客觀。因為到達後發現和我網上看到的圖片相差甚遠,進入房間後更有一股濃濃的霉味!廁所沒有門,沒有布遮擋,很沒安全感。院子裏更有碩大的老鼠穿行而過……最後決定放棄入住。所以其實本人在此hotel逗留的時間不超過一小時,沒有真正使用此hotel的服務設施,所以本人的評語該是很主觀的……但,此Hotel的確讓本人大失所望,特別是剛從經營服務非常周到的金門民宿回來後!
