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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Not your Starwood and IHG hotels definately, but surely the place that you want to stay in to soak in the view. Smacked rite infront of the broken and friendship bridges, this is a dream room for all professional & amatuer photographers.
