The design of the hotel attempts to bring back the atmosphere of 1940s; a retro feel with a modern touch. A bar is opened from friday to sunday at the hotel main lobby. A walk from the hotel to MRT only takes 5-10 minutes.
The room is nice with contemporary style. The bed is firm without being hard. We really liked the style of the room. The bathroom is compact, but practical enough. The rainforest style shower is AMAZING. The only comment we would make regarding the room is there is no bathroom door …. maybe a problem if you’re sharing with a friend. Cleanliness in the hotel is excellent.
The hotel is situated about a 10 minute walk from Xiamen Station. There are a lot of small restaurants and fast food chains (both Eastern and Western) in the area.
There is a trendy looking bar in the hotel but only seems busy at weekends.
The breakfast is good and offers mainly eastern options (apart from a croissant). The filter coffee is great. I was very surprised by it.
All in all, we highly recommend inhouse Hotel. It’s a great balance of price and comfort.

Plenty of cosmetics and snacks! Attentive and helpful staff. Staff were able to remember our names and room number after just one night.

She also helped us to order Li Yi sun biscuits and got it delivered to hotel on time. I feel that all the staff were super helpful and polite. There is always 1 or 2 taxis waiting outside the hotel so it is very convenient should you wish to take a cab. Overall, I had a pleasant experience at Just Sleep Ximending and I highly recommened it.
