Second Best Hotel in Xiamen, China – Part 3

  • SumoMe

As mentioned earlier in my first post of Xiamen, we were supposed to switch hotels after the first night. The second hotel, without a doubt, was much better than the one we stayed in. The next morning, we went for breakfast, packed and took a cab to the next hotel.

Couldn’t resist taking the picture of giant sneakers!

The hotel that we were going to was called Wyndham Hotel Xiamen, which is also ranked #2 by TripAdvisor. Once we entered the lobby, it felt like we were in a different world altogether. The majestic chandeliers were so grand and sparkly, the floors so smooth and shiny, and the area so spacious! Luxurious, definitely luxurious.

While Saucer was performing the necessary check in procedures, I couldn’t help but be awed by my surroundings.

Soon, our room was ready and we were given a key card. Look, even the lift lobby was so classy!

We were given a twin bed room, but each bed was wide enough for 2 persons! It was larger than the standard size single bed, but just slightly smaller than a queen bed. Best of all? The bed was super comfy and the pillows were made from down. Heavenly! :)

The room had a floor to ceiling window which opened to a  glorious view of the river!

The bathroom was spacious, with a cubicle for shower and a cubicle for toilet.

The shower head was huge with strong water pressure – exactly what a good shower is made of. :)

But what I love most of the wash room is the bath tub! I actually spent a lot of my time in the tub having a bubble bath! Exceptionally delightful especially after working out in the gym. :)

Every morning, we woke up to the amazing view of the river.

And every evening, we were treated to a beautiful sunset, all from the comfort of our room. The island opposite of the river is called Gulangyu, which is synonymous to Xiamen’s pride. It’s an island that we visited a few days later, together with my friends from Beijing. :)

Needless to say, our experience in Wyndham Hotel had been nothing short of fabulous. Well, when the room rate is about RMB1,000+ per night, some expectations are bound to be there, no?
