The hotel is located in a very beautiful area by the sea. The beach is nice and the environment is excellent. The hotel is very good but very focus in the Chinese guests offering limited option for non mandarin speakers ( food, TV and staff) The overall service is very good and a good place to stay. I should be... More

The Golden Gulf Hotel is situated right on the sea at the end of a popular boardwalk in downtown Yantai. I would venture to say it is an older section of the town due to some of the architecture in the immediate area. This hotel is on the older side but still demonstrates a high level of customer service. I... More

I have had a great 3 day stay here. It's close to the beach so a long walk was welcome after a day of business. The hotel is great, it's clean, the staff are friendly and the rooms are spacious. Breakfast was good and the western food acceptable. I would stay here again.

The Golden Gulf Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Yantai. It is located along the water at the end of the waterfront esplanade. It has nice views of the islands and of the city, especially at night. The staff is the best part of this hotel, they will always go above and beyond to help you. Not all... More

Great location with easy access to the beautiful esplanade and historic buildings. City centre is about a 15/20 minute walk.Try going through the back streets near the hotel. Interesting food markets are something to be seen. The customer service at this hotel is first class. From the moment you pull up the bell boy is polite and efficient, book in... More

I stayed here with my family in January towards the end of the Chinese spring festival. The hotel itself is located in a good area with views of the bay and an interesting "hutong type" area behind it. The rooms and the lobby are exceptionally clean and decorated nicely. I didn't try the included breakfast although it seemed pretty typical... More

Yantai is a small coastal city of 600,000 or so, and this hotel sits right by the water. The lobby is large, but design is typical of local china tackiness. The room is average size, has the super old cathode ray non flat tv, but i was glad they had mtv and cnn and everything else in between. They thankfully... More

This seaside hotel is at the end of a promenade and seawall not far from a wine museum and "Times Square" where street vendors run a 7 day a week flea market. The hotel has all the usual five star amenities including a fabulous spa. The spa, called a sauna in China, features a huge soaker pool, showers, sauna, and... More
