“Good hotel, average location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Radisson Blu is a good hotel located near the primary Tianjin railway station (the one that connects to Beijing via high speed rail). While close to the train station, it is somewhat far from the downtown area, which is exacerbated by the significant rush hour traffic. I stayed here for a conference which had transportation provided, which helped with the transport situation. Taxis were plentiful in absence of that.

The rooms were clean and well appointed, with nice bathrooms. The hotel restaurant had a good buffet for both breakfast and dinner (I can't speak for lunch, as I didn't eat there). This is helpful since the immediate area does not have many dining options.

Thank you for taking the time to review Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Tianjin.

I am very pleased you enjoyed the quality of our rooms, bathrooms and restaurant.. We also have a Chinese restaurant that serves a wide array of dishes from all over China and is very popular among our guests.

As you have highlighted, the hotel is a short walk from the High Speed train to Beijing. We are the closest international hotel to the station and this is an ideal location for business and leisure travellers to begin their stay in Tianjin.

The hotel is located about 3 kilometers from the main shopping district of Tianjin. This can be accessed in a taxi, or for the more energetic, its a beautiful walk along the river.

Again, thank you for your review.

Warmest regards

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

A short two-night stay at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Tianjin where the location surpassed expectation but the service was lacking. While I understand that it’s not a top-of-the-line hotel I certainly expected better from a large international hotel operating in one of China’s largest cities.

Arriving in our hotel we were shown to our room which was missing the television remote which was replaced by housekeeping upon our request the following day. However, more importantly the internet in the room is wired access only meaning we could only [easily] use one of the two laptops and two mobile phones in our possession – a real pain given that I use a combination of E-Mail and WhatsApp for work.

On top of that the ladies at the check-in counter were great at facilitating the check-in but quite clueless about the local area. Upon asking for the nearest China Unicom to recharge my phone they advised they were unsure/there were none in the area. However, when wandering around I was able to find TWO China Unicom stores within a few blocks. It would be really great if they at least knew where travellers could recharge phones powered by China’s major networks.

Summary:
++ Convenient location
+ A lovely interior and well furnished rooms
- Remote missing upon arrival
- King sized bed is two singles side-by-side
-- No WiFi is silly when most people own at least 2 WiFi devices
--- Very confused receptionist desk

Room Tip: If you need a China Unicom ask them which direction the 7-11 is and then take a left at the first st...

Thank you for taking the time to review Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Tianjin.

I was disappointed to hear of the service and product shortfalls you experienced during your stay with us. I sincerley appreciate you highlighting these concerns to ensure we conduct our training to satisfy our guests need.

In regards to the in-room internet, the hotel offers a wired ethernet service, however upon request we can provided wireless routers so you can connect multiple devices.

On a positive note, we are very pleased you found the location ideal. We are just a short walk from the main railway station and very close to the beuatiful river that runs throught the middle of Tianjin. We are also very pleased you found the interior and room very well furnished.

Again, thank you for your review.

Best regards

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Hotel is very convenient to the Train Station by subway line 2 (just one stop). What I didn't know is that this subway line is not finished, so beware that the Train Station is the terminal of the line which close scrutiny of the subway map will make apparent. When we first checked in our non-smoking room smelled quite smoky, so we called down to the desk and they promptly upgraded us to a room without any odor. The set-up of the room is great for business travelers with a wonderful work area, with the only complaint being no wifi. The bedding was very comfortable and the bathroom looks great. Had a few problems with the toilet and got to know a couple of the maintenance men. Regardless of the issues the staff was always right on top of them with a very cheerful attitude.

Room Tip: Just have the hotel get a cab for you and take a hotel business card to give to a cab driver for you...

Good location with everything you need within walking distance. There is a small mall with Walmart nearby and the subject is also nearby(5 min walk) There are also some eateries opposite the hotel.
Room is big, spacious and clean. I especially like the toilet which is humongous. Lan cable is available in the room for free internet usage but there isnt any wifi. so in order to use the internet, you need to bring your lap top along.
there is also an indoor pool in the hotel which is good for a swim in the winter season

"Definitely a 5 star hotel !" Thank you!! We are very pleased we met your expectations and you enjoyed your stay with us.

As you have highlighted in your review, the hotel is located opposite the Walmart shopping Mall, and also nearby numerous restaurants. We are also only a short walk from the Tianjin - Beijin Bullet Train station and the subway station is directly opposite the hotel.

In regards to internet in the room, whilst the room is wired, upon request we can provide a wireless router to ensure you enjoy wireless access.

Again, thank you for your positive review.

On business in Tianjin. This hotel is architecturally different, but really quite nice. Close the the river and the railway station (fast trains), its got a good location.. Reasonable rates as long as town isn't booked out for a world summit of some kind.

Lovely clean, modern hotel. Check in was fast and efficient. Room was large and well appointed. The bathroom is beautiful. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in China. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful hotel. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Business Class room is lovely. Try for a higher floor.
