Magic Millennium Hotel Xiamen Best HotelsMagic Millennium Blog

Note!  Xiamen hotel online booking is convenient, but often quite expensive.   If you book on arrival you shouldbe able to get them down 10 or 20%, or even 30% if off season, but you run the risk of no rooms (though with the present economy, that probably is not likely).  CLICK HERE to Google and book Xiamen hotels rooms.

My Favorites
Off Island: 
Accomodations & dining on Gulangyu are not the best, so I recommend Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen.  Right downtown, it is a pleasant stroll to either downtown or the Gulangyu ferry, and as Xiamen's first international hotel, it has the best rooms, service, and dining (best buffets in town.   Click Here for info.

On Gulangyu Island:  Gulanyu Villa is delightful; grassy lawns, near the beach; but remote, and not much fun in inclement weather.  7th Day Adventist Sanatorium is also secluded, quiet, cheap, and has good vegetarian food.   Bayview Inn is a favorite with wedding photographers; white picket fence, yard.  Near the ferry; but pricey if not booked in advance, and when my friends booked online, the Bayview argued about deducting the deposit (for which they had a receipt) from the bill, saying it was an internet fee (but they had paid a separate internet fee).  So for on-island, you might try Yo Yo Inn.

** Yo Yo Inn  The Andersons just returned to trace John's Anderson's roots (he was born in Hope Hospital on Gulangyu in the 1940s), and they stayed at Yo Yo Inn, and were delighted with the place, the food, and the convenient location (10 minutes from ferry).  Includes wi-fi in room and lobby, free breakfast.
Address: #66 Quanzhou Rd.  Google Yo Yo Inn Xiamen Gulangyu to book online (many sites will do it).

*Gulangyu Villa Hotel (Gǔlàngyǔ Biéshù Jiúdiàn 鼓浪别墅酒店) 3 Stars. Delightfully secluded beachfront location. Take ferry to back of island. Tel: 2063280
Add: #14 Gǔshēng Lù Zip 361002 鼓声路14号

7th Day Adventist Sanatorium (Měihuá Lǎorén Liáoyǎng Yuàn 美华老人疗养院) Delightful inexpensive hilltop retreat; great vegetarian food. Take ferry to Gǔlàng Villa Hotel (Gǔlàngyǔ Biéshù Jiúdiàn 鼓浪别墅酒店). Turn right, walk up the coast a bit, ascend narrow granite path behind the bust of the man who invented Pīnyīn, take left fork. Just past the hilltop cemetery. Tel: 2066517

Xiàmén Night Lily Guesthouse/Bed & Breakfast (Xiàmén Yèbǎihé Bīnguǎn 厦门夜百合宾馆). No one answers any of the numbers, so I assume it is closed, though their website is still up:

Going Cheap on Gulangyu
Warning!  You get what you pay for (or don't pay for).  With a good discount, the Xiamen Millennium Harbourview, with their great rooms and buffets, are a great deal.  But if you insist on staying on Gulangyu, here are the less expensive places.

Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen  First and Best #1 Millennium Harbourview Hotel was Xiamen's first international hotel; click here to see why it is still the best.   Millennium is ideally located, it is just a short stroll to downtown Zhongshan road, or the Gulangyu Ferry. My favorite restaurants include their Portofino, Xiamen's finest Italian, and Harbour Cafe, which has Xiamen's best breakfast buffet, and different international cuisines each night of the week.  Loong Yuen has great Cantonese and food, and watch their amazing pasta master work his magic.  Also visit their Sakura Japanese restaurant.
