“Large rooms, amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Second year we went to this hotel, still amazed. Sure the furniture are a bit worn out, but hey, this is China were things decay at a spectacular speed.
The best thing about the hotel is how large the rooms are for such a reasonable price. And taking a bath while looking over Tianjin from the 36th floor is a very pleasant experience.
I found the staff particularly helpful. I needed diapers for the girls, and someone actually accompanied me to the nearest supermarkets until I finally found what I needed.
And of course the location is optimal, at the end of Tianjin's best shopping street.
We had tried the previous years the japanese hotel next door, but the Tangla is just a different class entirely, for almost the same price.

Room Tip: Looks like some rooms have a larger bathroom. But even the smaller ones are very very large.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Took a weekend trip to Tianjin to celebrate an anniversary with my significant other, looked at a couple hotels, and settled on the Tangla for it's large rooms on high floors. The hotel had a beautiful lobby, but the reception area was a bit strange, off to the side in a dimly lit room, though it did provide a vip feel, it was still a bit awkward. While checking in, the duty manager Mr. Bai upgraded us to a larger room upon learning that it was our anniversary. Thumbs up. The room was beautiful, super comfy bed and the bathroom was awesome. Everything about the room is quality, from the pillow menu to the Molton Brown toiletries. The stand alone bathtub with a view of downtown Beijing was pretty amazing. One thing about the room that was a bit annoying was the air conditioning is not strong, and they don't turn on the ac in the hallways. The indoor pool was quite nice, the water could be a bit cleaner.

The hotel also has a pretty good seafood buffet, but the way it's advertised is a little bit misleading. There is no all you can eat lobster, or crab, they give you only half a Boston lobster and one tiny crab, for almost 500 rmb per person, you'd expect a bit more. The rest of the seafood that they did provide was pretty good, but the selection was a bit paltry due to our slightly late dinner reservation of 730pm. The quality of the seafood is quite good, the sashimi is cut to order, they give you nice chunky cuts, not the paper thin sloppy slices you get in most buffets. Surprisingly the most memorable seafood from this meal was the Mackerel from the teppanyaki bar, by far the freshest and juiciest I've ever had. The hotel was kind enough to help us celebrate by providing us with a complimentary cake =). The service staff at the restaurant was excellent.

Breakfast buffet... not the best. The selection here was a bit dull, and the guys who were running the egg bar was a bit rude. The place kept running out of plates/glasses/silverware etc.... The yogurt is some low end 2 kuai yogurt from 7-11 and many of the dishes were not hot, the sausage, bacon and grilled tomato was cold. The croissants and pastry selection was pretty good, the juices were okay, but nothing to write home about.

Overall, I would most likely stay at this hotel again, the rooms were beautiful and most of the staff did what they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Room Tip: If you stay here during the summer, ask for a room that has a strong a/c.

Amazing Rooms and View of downtown Tianjin
Very clean, specially love the smell in the lobby going up to your room.
Very relaxing.
Center of everything you want to do in Tianjin.

Bath room is great, bath overlooking the city.

Would stay here again if ever i am in Tianjin.

The hotels has a wonderful design and the rooms are very spacious. The view from the rooms is also quite spectacular. All in all the design of the hotel is what you would expect from a (former) Raffles hotel.

However the service qaulity is absolutely not up to the standard of the hotel. Hotel staff is not greeting you and the level of english is quite poor (with some exceptions).

This hotel on Nanjing Road is convneniently located to shopping and restaurants and great views to boot. My room on the 47th floor corner has an unimpeded view of the city and far from the traffic noise below. The room is big with a separate seating area and a bathroom that can match the size of guest rooms rooms in other hotels.. It has a free-standing bath with its own TV and separatec ubicles for shower, WC and a walk-in closet, all luxuriously furnished. One can admire the view from the bath through the full height windows without worrying with prying eye from adjacent properties. The bed is really comfortable.
The breakfast buffet has a generous spread to satisfy both western and local tastes. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. The check-in and check-out experience was a notch down as it was less warm. Overall still a good stay although the rates were a bit tiff.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room which has great views from the room and bath.

Yo I stayed at this place this hotel is the bomb,
it's the kinda place you wanna go which yo moms,
they got mad views of the city and the food be real tight
you can take a bath while looking out over the city lights.
The help was for real the service was stellar
The beds are temper-pedic and the pillows light as feathers.
The price was just right and easy sleepin' all night
You could go somewhere else but it wouldn't be as nice.

Tangla where it be at!

The hotel is located at the center of Tianjin city and just across the Binjangdao street. As gustrooms are above 40 floors, its night view was worth seeing. Especially night view from bathroom was impressive. Breakfast buffet was not that bad. I think it's a little bit expensive for the quality, but I recommend this hotel if you stay less than 2 nights.

Room Tip: I stayed at grand room and its night view was impressive.
