I chose this hotel as my event was happening here and did not want any hassle as it was my first time to Yantai. The hotel is located along the sea and not too far away from town centre. Location There are shops in the small roads and alleys just outside the hotel but I did not walk out to... More

This July I stayed for one night at this classic old European style hotel located at the north end of the boardwalk in Yantai, right on the East China Sea. The location alone is worth an overnight stay. In the evening, you can walk around narrow streets and alleys lined with the shops and pubs of old town Yantai. Visit... More

Nice hotel, very stately in style. Very nice service and a huge selection for breakfast to suit all nationalities. Located right on the water. If you want a hotel thats a little more Chinese in style, this is a good option.

I would highly recommend this hotel. I have stayed at 5 star hotels in Beijing and Shanghai and this one would be on the top of my list. I am not a VIP by any means but was treated like one by the staff. I am American and I was travelling with some of my family who are from China... More

A rather nice hotel with all services that you ask for as a business traveler. The breakfast buffé is nice with an international touch, but the warm food could be served at somewhat higher temperature... The beds are rather hard, but that's typical China standard. Had some trouble with the Internet connection in my room, both with cable and with... More

I only stayed one night, but enjoyed the experience. The staff are professional and the hotel is very comfortable. The decoration veered towards luxury, but not totally to western taste. Wifi was poor. However, it is very well located to explore Yantai, and it is beautifully located on the coast. I would have no problems returning to the Golden Gulf,... More

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.

Stayed at hotel for 4 weeks when relocating to Yantai. Nice hotel near center of city. On waterfront. Good selection of foods, clean large rooms. KTV downstairs. Western piano bar upstairs, Japanese and Chinese restaurants in hotel. Great stay and would recommend highly.
