I stayed in the Kempinski for 11 days for a business trip. It was the recommended hotel in Dalian from my company so I took it.
As everything in Dalian, expect this to be very big, I was on the 21st floor and there were many still above me.
The location is good being situated next to a walking area, a mall, a park and one of the main roads in Dalian.
The room is very spacious, with a very nice bed, complimentary water, tee and coffee.
One of the striking things I found was a gas mask; it turned out these are mandatory in case of a fire.
I didn't watch TV but I did notice that it was on a rather difficult angle to be watching it from the bed.
Wi-Fi was so-so disconnecting sometimes. The good thing is that there is Ethernet as well so as long as you have a port you can connect via cable. The speed of the Internet was good enough for video conversations on Skype. Expect many services not to work though as traffic is filtered.
There was rich assortment of bread, pastries, cheeses, etc. during breakfast and all was tasty. There was also a selection of typical Chinese dishes in case one wants to start the day with noodles as opposed to English breakfast. The tea was good, the coffee not so much. Bare in mind that the coffee was bad everywhere in Dalian. Chinese do not have a tradition with coffee, but there is wide assortment of teas.
All-in-all a very nice experience and will certainly stay in the Kempinski again during my next visit.
