Shanghai and eastern China’s subtropical climate brings with it four distinct seasons. The weather is generally mild and temperate, with a great deal of rainfall even in the drier months of the year. The frequent monsoon showers and scorching temperatures of June, July and August can make it uncomfortably humid, with the mercury regularly rising over 35°C. Winter is overcast and chilly, although snow seldom falls in this eastern region of China. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit Shanghai and eastern China, with pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists.
With views out over the iconic West Lake, the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou offers an incredibly comfortable place to stay in downtown Hangzhou. With 390 rooms, it's larger than most hotels that we recommend, but we feel it's a fantastic option.
The Hyatt Regency is a contemporary hotel that offers the most wonderful views over West Lake, an iconic scene that has been captured by Chinese artists and poets for many centuries. Hangzhou is a relatively quiet and very scenic city when compared to the likes of Beijing; this relaxed feel is very much at the heart of the hotel with tasteful and subtle decor, a peaceful lobby area and an indulgent spa.
There are numerous dining options including a cafe, the highly regarded 28 Hublin Road that serves Chinese cuisine, as well as a pastry boutique and a contemporary bar.
We feel this is an excellent option for those wanting a great standard of accommodation and value for money.
There are 390 rooms in total that are spacious, contemporary and incredibly tasteful. The Standard rooms enjoy city views, but if you are looking for lake views we suggest going for the View rooms as these boast a bay window with panoramic West Lake views.
