If you are after a really authentic suburban experience, this is it ... a nice leafy apartment compound, with views of the river and mountain in a very local area, with a chorus of frogs and birds every night - and a warm host family environment.
Song is very inclusive and often invited me to join them for home-cooked meals (Sunday lunch a specialty!) and always made me something for breakfast.
It is convenient in as much as there are several supermarkets and restaurants just outside the (high security) compound. Even a bus depot. But it's quite a good 15-min 25-30 RMB taxi ride to the Metro, so if you're thinking of zipping here and there it's maybe not the place for you.
Song went out of her way to help me with local directions and bookings etc in Chinese when needed.
Overall, happy to recommend it as a warm and friendly home base in Hangzhou. I would stay here again next time. Great value, thanks.
the apartment is warm and cozy and our room is big and comfortable with a balcony and great views of the river and surroundings. we totally recommend everyone to try her place. she is a very nice host, friendly and helpful and will return if coming back to hangshou.
