There is not much to see in Cixi, in fact there is nothing to see but if you find yourself there then stay at the
ADD; NO 301 Sishan Road, Cixi, Zhejiang, P.R.C.
TEL; 0574-63914888.
It's a japanese style hotel with 4 floors.

There is a Western style buffet and breakfast area off the lobby. It seemed more Western China than Western to me. I had to do the rounds a few times before I found something to eat. The sushi did not look that fresh. I finally went for the roast chicken with old roasted potatoes. The table next to me munched on starfish, yuck! The maitre d', Jacky, was very attentive and insisted that I try an espresso from his new coffee machine.

The hallways are well lit.

The rooms are small but very nicely laid out. I like how the vanity wall is not solid which makes the bathroom area less claustrophobic.

The bed was very comfortable with a big wall TV. HBO was free but you had to pay for CNN access. Free internet access is always a plus.

There is a Japanese style bathtub near the window which looked nice but is a waste of space.

All the rooms have balconies which look onto a lovely inner courtyard.

If you like going to the gym then this hotel has an issue. The gym does not open until 2pm and when it does open it is a little crammed but I still managed to get a good work out in. Forget the pool it is a kidney shape and tiny. The hotel did offer free bikes to guests but I did not use them.
