I would not say this was the best choice but a good choice to be in a city center accessible to almost all good malls, main streets, shopping areas and restaurants. A clean and nicely located property with good clean rooms, staff which was helpful except for housekeeping. I loved the breakfast but was denied of being served a omelette in breakfast buffet, a minus point. Good for a business visitor.

Room Tip: High floors definitely, Check the air conditioning, Mini Bar request

Very nice hotel. Rooms are good and clean, quite confortable. Location is great and the hotel is right at the beginning of a walking street with lots of food stands and shopping street. I will certainly recommend it to friends. Walking distance to various places

It's mid October and we have been checked in for 7 hours and the room is soo hot we can not sleep . We asked for a table or floor fan ... and they said ok no problem ,,it's been 3 hours and 4 phone calls and now they say there are no fans . The windows opens but it does nothing . We are booked in the hotel with a large group but am seriously considering leaving the group and changing hotels. If you don't mind sleeping in a sauna you will sleep well ,,, if you like air conditioning skip this hotel .

Dear Guest,

We are terribly sorry about your experience above in our hotel. The matter was caused by the current season switch, expecially because of a temperature sudden drop just a day before you checked in, which made us have to change the hotel air-conditioning system from cold to heating earlier than usually this year and it’s hard and takes time to switch back and forth. Anyway, it’s us that made your living unbearable, we do apologize to you for this happening and hope you still choose us for your stay in Dalian.

This hotel is exactly what is says on the tin - basic and simple but fine. The central areas were pretty clean and the service staff are helpful and cheerful. The room was pretty clean and the Internet worked fine.

Nothing really stands out but it was fine for a cheap hotel.

My wife and I spent two nights here to relax over a weekend. We once had good expreience with a Holiday Inn Express in Shanghai so we decided to try this one. Turned out there is a gap. The hotel is located in the central area of the old (but not historical) Dalian - many street vendors and a huge number of touristis/shoppers, which means it is crowded and noisy. The adjacening streets are not very clean. The facilities in the hotel room is rather old, especially the windows which can not well insulate the outside noise. Check-in was slow and the staff were like always a few steps behind.

Fortunately Dalian's coastline along the north Binhai road made up for this. We still left in a good mood.

We stayed here for two nights. The experience was just ok. We will probably choose a different hotel in the future.

The hotel is in a good location, very close to everything and you can even walk from the train station if you know where to go. It was difficult for us to get a taxi because it was too close and some taxi drivers didn't want to go there. The hotel is very close to a nice mall with a nice food court and many stores. We got many supplies from the mall.

We had an executive suite, but the room was ok. It could probably use some major cleaning and update. The living room light (beside the couch) didn't work, but once we sat on the couch, it would turn on by itself. It was handy but was annoying after a day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The check in was quick and smooth. The hotel restaurant had good food and the breakfast was well done.

We had issues getting taxi to go to the airport. I think the city might not have enough taxis and we had to share with several other passengers and the trip took awhile.

We decided to stay here after an extensive research; however, after staying in Somerset Heping in Shenyang and had a wonderful experience there. I would look at that one or others before choosing to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room, if you can.
