We had one night in Dandong and we chose the Zhonglian Hotel because of its location directly across from the Yalu River's Broken Bridge and the North Korean shore. At check-in, the staff fumbled our reservation and checked us into the wrong room - on the parking lot side. Please note, if you're in this hotel and have the parking...

I stayed here for one night after arriving by train from North Korea. The hotel itself seems like a quite nice budget hotel, but the rooms could use a little restoration. Positive: The location is good, right by the river and not far from the Sino-Korean Friendship bridge and the old Yalu bridge. The staff, especially the young doorman whose...

This is one of the best locations in town and the staff is friendly and tries hard to please. Since they cater mostly to Chinese tourists their english is limited. Be prepared and write down some handy phrases in advance. The caveat is that this is a Chinese hotel, meaning you will face harder than usual beds if you are...

stayed here for 2 nights... based on reviews was not the best but i still chose this hotel based on its location... and no regret on my decision... looking right across the yalu river, with the view of the yalu broken bridge and the friendship bridge... the room is spacious and comfortable enough, but the stale tabacco smell is inevitable...

When we checked in, they wanted a 500 RMB deposit. It was a Sunday evening when we checked in and had no local currency. Exchange facilities were advertised at the the reception desk. We ask to change money, apparently they don't change money in evenings or on weekends. We were told to go to a bank. When we asked where...

The location is pretty awesome since the hotel is steps away from the bridge as well as the main tourist area. We negotiated the rate on the spot. A bit on the spendy side IMHO. The breakfast was just ok, nothing special. The AC in the room went out at around 9pm after a short power outage. I had to...

This is an adequate hotel that I would rate at 3 stars. Arguably it has the best location in Dandong with perfect views across the friendship bridge to North Korea. The binoculars in the room are a quirky touch to enable you to have a good view across to the NK side. Dandong as a whole capitalises on its near...

This is just a purely wonderful hotel. Even though I'm a Platinum with the Crowne Plaza chain (IHG), I stayed here because I thought "hmm... I'm going to North Korea, let's stay at a hotel off the beaten path!" My tour guide suggested Zhonglian, and it was AWESOME! It feels like a home away from home, the people are so...

Superb views over the two bridges to North Korea (get up early to visit the broken bridge when it opens at 0730 to avoid the crowds). Great Chinese breakfast. ATM machines in the lobby. Good location for lots of nearby restaurants within easy walking distance and - especially important if you have just arrived from North Korea - a great...

Relatively mediocre hotel, but for the fantastic view overlooking North Korea and the sino-korean friendship bridge. This in itself makes the hotel worth a night's board. Rooms are tidy and clean, and provide binoculars to look out onto the North Korean border guards. You can also watch the trains entering into China, and if you look closely you will see...
