The Diaoyutai Hotel Hangzhou is conceived as the residence of a highly knowledgeable diplomat with rich life experiences; an individual with an open mind who is, by nature, modest and generous in disposition. The Diaoyutai Hotel Hangzhou is the diplomat’s mansion where distinguished visitors from around the world are catered to and entertained as his guests, immersed in traditional Chinese culture combined with contemporary international elements.



The design theme is a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional Chinese courtyard residence, combined with the attractive garden scenery for which Southern China and particularly Hangzhou is famous.

Diaoyutai Hotel Hangzhou is designed by renowned British architecture firm, Atkins, who capture the essence of the prestigious Diaoyutai brand while infusing contemporary aesthetics into the design concept. They skillfully maintain a delicate balance between tradition and modernity, whilst also placing Hangzhou itself within a wider, international context.

The hotel’s interior design is by noted Hong Kong firm Cheng Chung Design. The lobby, restaurants, guest rooms, and banquet halls form a continuous space which fuses international elements with Chinese aesthetics. The functional areas blend the rich legacy of Diaoyutai and the diplomatic culture of the State Guesthouse with the cultural legacy and scenic charms of Hangzhou, one of the eight ancient capitals of China.

Commanding stunning river views and natural beauty near the forest garden, Diaoyutai Hotel Hangzhou is located at No. 65, Wuxing Road, Jianggan District, Qianjiang Central Business District, 25-minute driving distance to Xiaoshan International Airport, and about 30-40-minute driving distance to the West Lake or Liuhe Pagoda.

Gary Chan, General Manager of Diaoyutai Hotel Hangzhou, said, “Hangzhou is an ancient capital with rich culture and history. The hotel blends the culture of this time-honoured city and top-tier hospitality and service originated from the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, bringing Chinese style hospitality experiences with a modern touch to our guests.”
