We were in Dalian for a wedding (which was held at the Keminski and was lovely)
The hotel facilities were gorgeous, and the staff were incredible - we got a hot tip for a fantastic local restaurant from the concierge, great bar and restaurant service throughout the trip, and good housekeeping.

When one of the members in our group required hospitalisation, the hotel staff were fantastic in getting him to the right place and were genuinely concerned with the outcome, which was really appreciated. They put us up for an additional night without making us change rooms and even went so far as a "get well soon" gift.

Some rooms are in need of renovation, and the price of tea in the lobby is extortionate, but overall, a great place to stay if you find yourself in Dalian.

The Kempinski Hotel is the best stay you can get in Dalian. Wide and nicely decorated, firnedly stuff. They also offer a delicious breakfast with western and chinese food. The Kempinski also offers a SPA area and swimming pool. Like in all Kempinski Hotels in China, there is a German style Paulaner restaurant in the basement with live music and German beer and food.

The Kempinski Hotel saved me in Dalian. It is no exceptional by any means, but it is comfortable. The rooms have been refurbished to modern standards and have nice amenities. I do have a complaint about the service though as they responded quite negatively when I asked why the rooms were so hot and if the heaters were working.

The breakfast is abundant in choice but not exactly of high quality. The hotel is in a fairly convenient location, close to an array of department stores and shopping area. However, if you don't have to come to Dalian. Don't bother.

The best thing about this hotel in China apart from all expected goodies a five star should expect is that they have an Indian Chef in their restaurant. His name is Rawat. You get amazing Indian food. Now the rooms, they are clean, luxurious and comfortable. Dalian despite being at -12 degrees the water is at room temp in bath. At times it becomes little hot in the room, for which you can open a small window and keep it covered by heavy curtains for perfect temperature.

The Kempinski is one of Dalian's newer hotels, located directly across from Labor Park and adjacent to some of Dalian's most flashy shopping destinations.

I selected the Kempinski due to its location slightly outside the downtown area, so that the amount of time transiting to the software park on the other end of the city would be reduced by a few minutes. I also wanted a place to go running in the morning, and was hopeful that Labor Park would be suitable.

The location did save some time versus either the Intercontinental or Shangri-La. Not battling Dalian's congested traffic around Zhongsan Square saved about 10-15 min time savings for the trip to and from the software park.

Labor Park is a disappointment for runners - very popular with locals early in the morning, the trails are not really good for running. So this is not a good reason to select this hotel

The hotel is very lux - the lobby is super clean and spacious, staffed by well trained door attendants and front desk staff.

My room on the 26th floor was impressive - a one bedroom suite, with a separate couch/desk and bedroom. Very spacious and an excellent value considering the price.

The bathroom is also very well appointed, with rain shower and hand held showerheads, a deep bath tub, and nice amenities.

The room is also equipped with a very spacious walk in closet with lots of hangers, shoe shine kit, etc. The room safe is thoughtfully equipped with an internal outlet, to allow charging of laptop or other device while stored in the safe.

F&B choices in the hotel are somewhat limited and could get tiring on a long stay. The beer brewery in the basement sells authentic German brews, with a limited menu.

All in all, Kempinski provides great value and excellent room. Highly recommended for business and leisure travelers alike. This will be my hotel of choice for return trips to the boom town of Dalian in the future.

Dalian is a really neat city. I think that the Kempinski is one of the nicest hotels available. The suites are a good size and feel more modern that the regular rooms, and the price difference seems minimal. Read more about Dalian below:
