Hello Sharon,

Thank you for the message. From Westlake 7 Service Apartment Hangzhou at West Lake to Song Cheng, if you want to take bus No.4, you need to walk about 550m to Longxiangqiao Bus Stop, and you will take about 50 minutes to get there. Song Cheng is actually a cultural theme park in Hangzhou, and it is suitable to visit during all four seasons. Both Hangzhou Station and Hangzhou East Station have subway connected to Longxiangqiao Station, and you can get there for about 10 minutes to Hangzhou Station and about 25 minutes from Hangzhou East Station. Besides, as the subway stations at the two railway stations are arranged within the railway station, you can get to subway station with a little walk. Also, there usually are some escalators and elevators, you don’t have to worry much about going with suitcases. From Longxiangqiao Station to Westlake 7 Service Apartment, you can choose the Exit D and walk left along Pinghai Road, turn right at the second traffic light to Yuewang Road, then keep walking for about 40 meters, you will see the apartment building across the road.

Have a nice day!

how do i get from four points sheraton 868 Dongxin Ave Binjian Hangzhou to Puyan Residential District Jiagnnan Avenue - Intellingent Tower Fu'erte Hotel Building 2 Binjiang Hangzhou

Hello Pierre,

Greetings from China! Do you mean how to get to the “Fuerte Business Hotel” from “Four Points By Sheraton Hangzhou Binjiang”? If yes, you could directly take a taxi there for only about 6-8 minutes, since the two places are only about 1.1km’s walking distance away from each other. Actually, taking a bus is not so convenient for the really short distance. If you want to go there on foot, you could walk follow the GPS and input the start of龙禧福朋喜来登酒店 and the destination of富尔特商务酒店(杭州滨江店), which needs about 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy your day!
