Reviewed December 26, 2013

In simple words:
Far away from city centre, walking to Zhaolin park approx 30 minutes, prices not at all acceptable, breakfast typical local, nothing for western people's tongue, almost no English though friendly and helpful, rooms smelly, old and crappy, one out of 6 sockets are working, ceiling lights most broken.
Any good things ? Yes the heating was working well and the water was also hot, so what else did we need …
Interesting and funny detail: The hotel shows beautiful pictures of the hotel rooms on the front desk picture frame and in the elevators how it looked like maybe 20 years ago, but its just a pure illusion. And they simply don't get it, …. so sad :((

Room Tip: Beware the place. There are other western hotel chains on the main shopping street (the famous pedes...

Horrible experience at this hotel... Old hotel, not well located... We was the only guest at the check-in and it's took very long time with the 2 front desk employees. No body speak english in the staff, it's was a nightmare..Very difficult to have a taxi from there... When we checked-out, we wait for a taxi 1 hour and we were close to miss our train... The breakfast was horrible... and the dishes was dirty. I can't say something positive about this hotel... NOTHING GOOD! BE AWARE, THIS HOTEL IS NAMED ALSO: Starway Premier Hotel Weiye Harbin.

We went to Harbin for the 2011 Snow and Ice Festival and many of the hotels were quite full, so we ended up choosing the Weiye Hotel based on (1) location, (2) it was a 4-star hotel and (3) the price.

(1) The location was advertised as downtown, unfortunately it was not downtown and the taxi driver had difficulty finding the place on a one way system. It is at least 15 minutes by taxi from Central Street (which is really downtown).

(2) This is not a 4-star hotel and is not set up for English speaking guests. The bar has been closed down, so you can't get a drink. There's no minibar, even though there is a minibar slip advertising the prices. The bedroom was just okay, but there was mould all through the bathroom and it felt dirty. The ventilation is poor and it was way too cold to open a window, so the room smelt musty.

(3) Price was what we wanted to pay, but this place was not worth the money. Breakfast was included in our rate and advertised as Western, but no Western breakfast, we had a fried egg and some melon then got something elsewhere.

I thought that the staff were very helpful and friendly, but I would avoid this hotel as there are plenty of others to choose from.
