“Great value hotel for family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

This hotel is located in the centre of the city, and it was (still is) relatively new when we visited it earlier this year. We really liked the higher floor that they upgraded us to (the executive suite I think it was called). It is in a building that I think was originally built for office but later was converted to a hotel. Hotel rooms were from certain floors and above. The room we had was clean and nice and spcious with double beds. There's a Wanda cinema in the same building too.

Breakfast was included and although there wasn't as much variety as Starwood's 5-star hotel brands, they were good for the money we paid for. Kids were happy.

In general we liked this hotel and recommend it for other family travellers.

Room Tip: higher floor (i.e. upgrade if possible)

This place was really interesting. The location is great. The staff was friendly.

The lobby was cool. They have an XBox Kinect for people to play with. There's no policy on use age so we didn't get to use it because two Chinese kids were using it for hours. There were also board games and stuff.

I will definitely visit again. Great new hotel!

I am staying here for a week business trip and all I can say it's a great hotel and I feel very comfortable. Surely, no minibar or luxury soap in the bathroom but the rooms are really nice and actually not small, the bed is super comfortable, staff speaks English and is nice and not rude, wifi works great at no extra charge. Staff very helpful and they have changed my room in no time when it turned out the aircon couldn't be changed and the room was getting too hot. The brekky is basic but nice and plenty to chose from. The gym is excellent and so is the pool. You can stay very comfortable in Dalian and all that for a great price. Will try the restaurant tonight for dinner ;)

I will start with the positive points
The reception spoke well English they were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean the bed very comfortable. The rate was very reasonable.
Now for the rest
I arrived 12 am there was nobody there to help with the luggege, I thought maybe because of the late hour there is no Bellboy service but the same was when i checked out in the morning there was nobody there to help you.
I would put this hotel in the Holiday inn express category, the rooms are new and clean but extremely small and claustrophobic no minibar was empty but there was a coffee maker in the room and a hot water Kettle that needs Einstein to know how to boil hot water in it.
the lobby is on the 6th floor so at the hotel entrance on the ground floor there is nobody there to greet you and tell you were to go you have to figure everything out yourself..
The shower had low pressure and the water temp was inconsistent and frustrating.
The coffee at breakfast tasted terrible and stale.
I didn't know anything about this ALOFT brand Before and that it belongs to the Sheraton SPG group so i didn't know what to expect even though they consider themselves a 5 star hotel couldn't figure out why maybe because of the stars you see when you look out the window.
If you are looking for a better low end hotel stay here if you are looking for Comfort and Luxury look somewhere else.
