This hotel located in the business area of Harbin is a good alternative the Shangri-la.
Before Sofitel (previously Singapore Hotel) opened, there was really only one 5 star international hotel in Harbin, Shangri-La, where they charged very high prices.
Although Sofitel is not as good as Shangri-la, but it is more than acceptable.
I'm your average business traveller who values cleanliness, quietness and efficiency above all else. This hotel ticks all the boxes.
Sure it might lack the Michelin grade restaurant or the boutique spa, but this is a hotel, not a resort and it gets the job done well. I think over time, it will also improve towards Shangri-la level.
