The hotel is very good and clean inside. The rooms are very clean and attractive... The staff are friendly and keeping service standards. But one thing I noticed that, the reception is not attractive and not so good.

This is a charming old hotel in one of the historic sections of Tianjin. Local attractions such as wudadao are within walking distance and there are shops and restaurants close by. The hotel has fairly large rooms decorated in 20s/30s style and the staff are helpful. Parts of the hotel such as reception look slightly drab but overall the hotel... More

I had a chance to stay at this unique property and i was purely trying because a friend mentioned it before during her stay in Tianjin. The hotel seems to be one of the cities first International hotels and does have a good charm to itself. The famous old elevator from early 20th century is a clear sign of the... More

This hotel opened in the late 20' in what was then the British concession. The building is nice and the recent refurbishment preserved the historical character of this place. The old Otis lift installed in 1928 contributes to the charm of the place (don’t worry there is also a brand new one!). The location in Heping district the central part... More

Very nice welcome at the desk. The entrance hall reminds of a 20ies style hotel and puts you in that kind of travelling mood. An iron elevator cage supports that image. The rooms are big and have a canape which invites to read. Bathrooms have a bathtub are big with. Could need some refurbish, though and cleaned more properly. The... More

The hotel is in a historic building of Tianjin, from the 20s, it has some kind of charm. Rooms was big, and comfy, very quiet, but bathroom is aging a bit. Neighborhood is not so nice, but walking distance from nicer place, and anyway taxis are very cheap. Didn't test the restaurant downstairs, and service is minimal. All in all,... More

It was a total pleasure staying here. The 3 star hotel has a staff with a 5 star attitude. This goes from the front desk to management and housekeeping staff. The hotel has been completely renovated. It hosts both a Chinese and Japanese restaurant, both are a good value for the portions and ambiance. It is located close to the... More

We stayed here on a trip to Tianjin in 2004. The room was overpriced, and a bit old and dingy. In fairness, this is one of the oldest hotels in Tianjin still in operation, and we did also enjoy the hotel’s faded glory, especially the old elevator. The location was also great for tourists - across the street from the... More
