New Gloria Hotel
Ranked #292 of 1,144 Hotels in Harbin
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Paid around 800 yuan during peak season and stayed in B part of the hotel. Rooms were a decent size and quite good condition. No view as such and disappointing shower and bathroom. Nevertheless seemed quite good value but don't expect too much. Breakfast was a typical Chinese spread buffet style and pleasant enough. Right next to Songhua river, very central and close to many of the 'attractions' in Harbin

Stayed: January 2014

This hotel was just right when you come for the Snow and ice Festival as walking /sliding on icy streets can be tricky. we arrived at 2AM and were happy to see friendly faces at reception. the first room had an issue with temperature the air conditioning was on 30 C and the temperature outside was minus 29 c so we slept with the window open to compensate. The staff were good and moved us to a new room overlooking the river. The frozen river was across the road and you could walk most places.

Room Tip: ask for one in the A building

Xin Kailai or New Kailai or New Gloria Plaza Hotel - in Harbin is located right infront of the river bed and almost all rooms are river facing.. just 2 mins of walkable distance to the shopping street (Central Street).. lots of western restaurants are closeby.. like McD, Pizza Hut, Costa Coffee and Starbucks.
The front desk was very helpful with English speaking people.. so kind to help out book cars for tour along with an English speaking guide.. helped to design my tour itinerary..

Rooms was very spacious.. I opted for a twin-bed room.. had internet and well equipped utilities in the room. Breakfast was more chinese than continental but looked ok. no compliants.

Luckily I got the best room on 7th floor.. views right in front of river.. giving me almost 180' view of the street and river outside.

Had a very pleasant stay and courteous hotel staff.

This is a beautiful hotel, located at the beginning of the Central Street, facing the Songhua River.
The Central Street lined with many beautful old architectures. It was part of the original town built by the Russian Jewish people about 100 years ago. (Harbin was once the largest Jew inhabited city in the Far East). There are restaurants (some are famous and historical), shops, megamarkets and hotels along the street.
Room furniture and decoration are old and the carpet cleaning needs improvement. The most bothering condition is the poor sound insulation. There are free internet services (it’s wonderful) --wired internet in rooms, and wireless in the lobby. But the internet itself was slow, and in some cases, not functioning properly. The connection was quite slow and would drop every few minutes.
Strangely no tourist map was available from the front desk. Also disappointed about the rude staff and the poor customer service.

I was there for a conference so had little reason to contact hotel staff as the organisers did all this. The room was very good, excellent views of the river etc. Breakfast was good and in a pleasant area. The location could not be bettered for a visit to this famous city.

This was an unexpected visit on my trip - Haerbin/Harbin had been added to our schedule by our hosts, so we went along with it all.
I am glad we did.
The last review actually sums up the experience of the hotel for a 鬼佬 to a tee, and I cannot add anything else to be frank.
Just be aware, this hotel is a Chinese-facing hotel - it may be in the Russian-influenced North-East, but don't expect anything but Chinese service and the bar closing at 10pm :)

This hotel is right by the main shopping area, main road and main shopping pedestrian street as well as the river.
This location is great.
you can go shopping without seeing too many cars.
You can eat within a few paces and also has a super market in the next block.

there is also a amusement opposite block for night time fun . even 4D games.
On the pedestrian street there are ice carvings and are lit up at night.
The river also has ice carvings, and ice skating.
The main attraction was the ice slide. its great to slide down to the river from the top of the bank.

There is an open area where the monument stands for the great flood . look for the gold bar where it shows the height of the water.

Further down is a cable car open in the summer.

This hotel also has a restaurant with lots of food.
Also frequently visited by officials which i also noticed.

Oh. forgot to mention people here speak very little English so you may need your Chinese speech book

Room Tip: inside rooms will be more quiet.
