Always wanted to stay at a castle hotel in my dream. Well, most of the castle hotels with prestige accommodation in Europe are all ridiculous expensive, then The luxury collection of Dalian castle hotel showed up and became the must have experience on my hotel list. The hotel is situated by the ocean front, not any near the beach, but has a great view of the ocean and harbor bridge. It’s gorgeous in the sunset. As soon as you step inside of the hotel, you would be amazed by the beautiful French decor in the grant lobby filled with crystal Chandelier and luxury furniture. The front desk staff Icey welcomed me warmly and assisted me in check in smoothly. By no time, I was at my ocean front view suite. She walked me in the suite and introduced all the amenities inside. Thanks to her and her team amazing hospitality, I had a very enjoyable time with the hotel. The bar on the 5th floor and a courtyard were also lovely to spend time at. The gym has all the basic equipments I need for a good workout session after having some great meals in the lobby restaurant. Two thumb up to recommend this great hotel and allow me to have a one night castle experience in Dalian, China.

My stay at the Castle started off with a pretty “chaotic” check in experience - it was 6pm, I did mobile check-in as an elite member, yet the front desk agent struggled to find me a room that was ready. That caught me off guard a bit but the situation was eventually sorted out after ~15 minutes. I went up to my room and was very pleasantly surprised by what it had to offer. My room was very spacious and well-lit. I was not a fan of the decor but meanwhile I have to say that the design was tasteful nonetheless. Bathroom amenities were above and beyond what I expected with a full smart bidet washlet available and a huge tub and sink vanity. I expected to have a decent view but oh boy it was way better than “decent” - instead of the featureless ocean I was expecting to see, I had a view of the entire west end of downtown Dalian, the Bohai Bay and a giant bridge, which put on an amazing “light show” every single night - surely the best part of my stay. My housekeeping lady was very pleasant as well, always smiling and proactively asked about my preferences and schedule so she can fit her service better into my routine - she even offered me water to go when I departed into the 30 degree heat - can't ask for a better housekeeper! One little thing I found slightly annoying though - the hotel is located in a reserved hilltop area, very secure but it seems that after their shuttle stops at 7pm you are on your own to walk up and down the hill. It's approximately 10-15 minutes of a walk, and I found it physically demanding to myself. My partner loved it though and laughed at me the whole way up when I was busy catching my breath... thought I'd mention this, not a deal breaker though. In general, albeit the higher room rate, I would still call this my favourite hotel in Dalian - it's really in its own league in the city, in that it is not only a luxury hotel, but also a luxury hotel with characters.

I come to Dalian quite often (2-3 times per year) and I stayed in the Castle hotel most of time. The hotel is in a great location with impressive decor. Ocean view is fantastic I read some of negative comments below on their service. At least from my experiences (counting maybe 10 times of stay, each time 1-2 weeks), I have to say their service is top notch. Staff are super friendly. The dinning managers Peter Wang and Troy Wang are super professional and very helpful. Andy Yang Yu in concierge is super friendly. I have been treated very well by them. Thank you!!! However, by staying in the Castle for many times, I do observe that the quality of breakfast is slightly declining. The selection is less. The popular watermelon juice is not as fresh and condensed as before. Something needs to improve in future. Overall, I had a great time in the Castle hotel. Thanks again for all you have done!

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights due to a family wedding. The hotel itself has a good atmosphere and the best overview on Dalian. Wedding was well executed and the food for lunch was good considering the 200 guests. At the same time, there were many bad things that cannot be accepted by a Luxury hotel of Bonvoy group. Bars are horrible and there isn’t a single professional bartender, service is slow and totally inefficient. Getting a drink on the terrace 5th floor is so hard, we had to beg everyday for somebody to come and serve us. Toilets in the common areas (2nd and 5th floor) are dirty and without paper, bad smell and sigarettes. Towels in the rooms are falling apart (please buy some new ones) and the smell in the bathroom wasn’t so pleasant. Since a night stay is quite expensive, i do expect it to be at high standards. Great location but everything else is poorly managed.

We booked the Castle hotel for 2 nights for a holiday, and the experience there turned into a nightmare. The service was unbearable and the instead of providing service, the staff tend to argue with the clients with A VERY ARROGANT ATTITUDE. They change their minds all the time: when we were a bit late for our breakfast (we believed it was 2-3 mins and they claimed it was 9 mins), two staff arrogantly told us to go away as we were late (instead of letting us quickly grab something to eat, after all we payed over 400 RMB for that breakfast). We then decided to go straight to lunch, but they claimed there were no available tables (no reserved tables for stay-in clients). After we complained, suddenly the lunch table were available, and a guy who claimed to be the restaurant manager called us, only to give a very unsincere apology (and let us know the people who told us to go away were not in the service team but in the kitchen team, like it matters). Then he offered us some fruites, which was not what we needed at all when we were starving, and funnily that fruites never appeared and he never offered a real solution. After that they claimed that it was us who rejected the fruites. Second morning we went to breakfast on-time, and the tea&coffee never appeared until we asked for times. The table next to us was complaining about the same thing: they take your order for tea or coffee, and they don't bring it until you ask. Not to mention the resurant didn't even have some cheese or olives to offer. When we checked out, we questioned about the bill of the breakfast, and after ages of waiting (we had a flight to catch and they really took their time), the restuarant manager, Mr. Troy Wang showed up, and again, ARROGANTLY told us there is no solution that they could offer, but some fruits (again, the fruits that never showed up)! So, in general, the service was a joke. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. No need to pay hundreds of dollars to be insulted. 我们在大连城堡酒店定了两个晚上,作为一个周末假期。真真实实有了噩梦般的体验。 酒店的服务人员态度极差,根本不想解决问题,只是想傲慢地向你证明你是错的,而他们是对的。 我们第一天早上吃早餐的时候晚了几分钟(我们认为是两三分钟,他们说是9分钟),两个服务人员态度非常不好的让我们走开,因为早餐时间已经过了。连我们随便进去盛点稀饭吃一口(毕竟我们付了400多的早餐钱,而且餐厅里很多人都仍在吃饭)都不可以。 接下来我们决定算了,直接订桌吃午餐,他们又告诉我们午餐没位置(因为对外部客人开放,所以位置定完了,对住店客人完全没有预留,也没有优先。)也就是说,如果你住在酒店,又不想吃room service,那你就只能饿着。 在我们投诉以后,一个女性工作人员给我们打电话,忽然又可以安排位置了。然后一个男性工作人员(后来得知名字叫Troy Wang)打电话过来,给了一个非常不真诚的解决方案:给盘水果打发我们。在我们表达的不满以后,水果也没有给我们(后来说是我们自己不要的)。挂了电话就没有下文,完全不想提供任何解决方案。 第二天,我们准时去餐厅吃早餐,先不说餐厅的种类有限(连个奶酪或橄榄都没有),服务员问了我们要茶还是咖啡以后,根本就忘了这茬,我们提醒以后才临时去去了咖啡给我们。邻桌也在抱怨一样的问题:他们问你想喝茶还是咖啡,但直到你提醒他们,才会送过来。 退房的时候,我们账单提出了疑问,在等了很久以后(先是等大堂经理,然后又要等餐厅经理,完全不顾我们有飞机要赶),餐厅经理终于出现,态度非常差。在告诉我们除了送我们点水果以外没有任何其他解决方式以后(那盘从来没出现的水果,呵呵),就甩开我们走掉了,根本不想解决问题。 综合,我们饿了肚子,又惹了一肚子气。每晚2000多的酒店(我们定的还是豪华海景房),就这种服务,也太差劲了。听我的,选个别的吧,大连好酒店多了去了。不必来受这个气。
