TravelPod Member ReviewsRedstar Culture Hotel Hangzhou
You really do get the culture of staying in a Chinese Hotel when you stay here. The staff were as helpful as they could be, the room was clean however I am not used to the smell of cigarettes everywhere in the hotel. Thankfully my room did not smell to much, however there was an ashtray on the table, on the toilet roll holder and next to the bed. It is a long walk from the main West Lake however the reason I chose the hotel was its location to the Hangzhou train station

The tea theme stayed with us until the day after when we went to visit the National Tea Museum: hectares and hectares of manicured green ...
... tea is good for your eyes particularly if using a computer after a period of time. Also don't throw out your used green tea leaves, rub them on your eyes to get rid of the blackness when tired. As the traffic is often painful, we went for a stroll in another part of the West Lake park instead of trying to go back to the hotel for dinner. We were all keen to head home after dinner knowing that our wake up call would be ...
... to have some fresh fruit to snack on. And because we love her, I will point out that Miss Perry got very adventurous and purchased Australian mandarins... Dinner on the lake and an earlish night. Washing night. We are yet to tell the students that the day we fly to Hong Kong, we will need to depart the hotel at 5am. They are already concerned about the 'early' starts, that is to say the 8:30 ...
