We came to Tianjin to visit family, friends, and have dental treatment at the dental hospital one stop away (door to door only 8 min). We chose this hotel because of the easy access from the subway - third stop from main railway station. It’s an easy walk to many attractions like the '5 great avenues', central city, major shopping street (both new & old), and night market.
We stayed here twice recently in different room types, over several days. We were very happy with room size, facilities, and comfort. We found all the staff friendly and helpful. Even though the area is very busy, the rooms on both sides of the hotel were quiet. The new construction mentioned in another review is almost complete. We always found taxis waiting at the nearby corner when we need them. There is a supermarket in the Isetan department store basement diagonally opposite, plus several convenience stores nearby.
Watch out for the unreasonable internet cost if not included in your room rate. It worked pretty well, via the LAN as we used it. We did not use any of the hotel restaurants or other hotel facilities.
A note on subway access: Directions to the hotel are not clear, and trip advisor & google maps do not show the hotel position accurately. Exit B3 was easiest, coming in to the basement food court of the mall. Up the escalators and across passing the department store service desk, turn left and a side door into the hotel lobby. C1 also came into the food level, but was more convoluted coming from subway line 3.
