Stayed there for 3 nights in early January. Situated next to the Songhua river and a minute taxi ride to Harbin shopping street. Was there in the middle of winter. Strong heating system. Wonderful buffett breakfast with a wide variety of selctions from Western to eastern selectios. I tried the hot pot at the Shang palace ice restaurant whic is only open in winter. Had the RMB288pp hot pot. Food was ample but the real attraction is the restaurant made completely of ice. Service was attentive. There is a heater underneath the table to keep ypu warm and glove are provided. Temperature in the restaurant is approc -15c.Try going for lunch when it is not full. Recommend to book ahead. The rooms at the hotel are dated and needs a refurbish. Not really up to a 5* Shangri La elsewhere. However it is still one of the best in Harbin and the price are reflective also.
