You can’t fully appreciate Quanzhou by day unless you’ve had a good rest by night. Fortunately, Quanzhou has one of our favorite hotels, the Quanzhou Mandarin Hotel (泉州悦华酒店)

The Princess and the Pea My wife must be related to the princess who felt the pea beneath 50 mattresses because she has found fault with fine establishments across the planet, from the legendary Princess Hotel in Acapulco and Hyatt in Maui to the Intercontinental in Vienna and the Bilderberg in Holland (Tsar Peter the Great liked it; my wife said it did not deserve five stars). We’ve also stayed in numerous Quanzhou hotels and each has pros and cons—except for the Mandarin, for which even my wife has only praise.

Room But No Board I’m not in my wife’s class (she says I have no class) but even I appreciate the Mandarin’s laid-back luxury—a rare marriage of elegance and comfort, imposing but inviting. The 380 well-appointed rooms are perfect for relaxing, resting, or getting a bit of work done in private. I also like the small touches, such as fresh flowers, fruit platter, reading materials, and city map. And while “room and board” in most Chinese hotels means the beds are as hard as a board, even my princess appreciated the Mandarin’s luxurious beds. I’d have been happy to hide out in our room—except for meals, of course, which one should not miss at the Mandarin.

Global Cuisine The Mandarin’s Lotus Restaurant serves many styles of Chinese cuisine in a classical setting, and the Kansai Japanese Restaurant could have been teleported straight from Tokyo. We enjoy buffet breakfasts in the Mandarin Garden Cafeteria and Lounge, which felt more like the South Pacific than downtown China. And the icing on the cake is Jeffrey’s Bakery. Fujian’s top pastry chef, Jeffrey offers everything from tiramisu, tarts and Napoleons to specialty breads and rolls. Or try a DIY (do-it-yourself) pastry for a loved one! Tel: 28019999 x5166

Enjoy Quanzhou Mandarin Hotel'ss comprehensive business and conference facilities, or their excellent gym, sauna and heated pool (Quanzhou’s best), or their business center, or the elite Executive Floor’s exclusive services and privileges.


挑剔的“豌豆公主”: 我太太有点像安徒生童话里的豌豆公主。不论是在阿卡普尔科传说中的“豌豆公主”酒店,还是在维也纳的凯悦酒店,抑或是彼尔德伯格公园酒店(这个连沙皇彼得都喜欢得不得了的豪华酒店,我太太却认为它不够档次),每一次入住,我太太都能从中挑出一些毛病出来。可是住在悦华酒店,我太太除了赞扬还是赞扬。

悦华的美食: 酒店的荷风中餐厅有提供中国各地的传统美食;二楼石山日本料理的菜肴口味更是正宗,因为它的很多原材料都是从日本东京直接空运过来的;悦园咖啡厅非常宽敞舒适,我和我太太喜欢在悦园咖啡厅悠闲地吃着早餐,这让我感觉像是在自己的国家,而不是在中国;杰弗里大师做的提拉米苏、拿破仑酥、黑森林等很多糕点常常让我念念不忘;悦华酒店还有完善的商务和会议设施,先进的健身设备,以及服务周到的桑拿中心,商务中心,如果想了解更多更全面的信息的话,你可以登陆悦华酒店的网站.
