Nice and comfortable. The main complaint was the horrible sewer smell at all hours of the day and night! Cozy bar and brightly lit tea room very nice for relaxing! Fairly centrally located, although I think Harbin is very spread out! Breakfast was included, but lots of eating places near the hotel!

i stayed for two weeks and found friendship within one. The walls are very old. I feel as though the friendship offered here is of mediocre quality. i learned that food is more valuable than friendship. you can do without friendship. you cannot do without food. generally overpopulated with friends. I tried to sing the friends theme song in the... More

We just returned from a trip to Harbin and we reserved a room via Ctrip at this hotel in the VIP building. My room reminds me of my college day dorm room both size and amenities. I got a desk with a chair, a TV on a stand, a tiny closet, a small bed and a small bathroom. Although it... More

Friendship Palace hotel is a really nice hotel - the rooms are nice (I think they may have been newly renovated) and its fairly central just a couple blocks from Central Street. Unfortunately the service is horrible. They won't even call a taxi for you (& this was for a 5:30am departure), they also don't try very hard to help... More

Honestly I rarely leave reviews, but in this case I was pretty disappointed with this property. My wife and I booked the cheaper room through Ctrip, it cost about 80usd a night. We went for the first few days of the ice festival. I input dates in march here on trip advisor once by accident and noticed it gets to... More

This is a standard Chinese style quality hotel. It's very conveniently located though the facilities are a bit dated. For the price and location though, it's difficult to compete. I stayed in a nice, large suite which was very comfortable and spacious. The mattress could have been more comfortable though. I find that's one area where the local Chinese hotels... More

Stayed there for a full week in February 2014 on a visit to the ice festival. VERY convenient for all sites and sights. While the older rooms looked dingy as I passed, I had booked a business room which turned out to be in the new wing. Room bright and pleasant, overlooking an interior courtyard mostly filled with a domed... More

The hotel is in a good location. Easy to access and food is plentiful around the location. The staff hardly speak English and that is a big difficulty if you don't speak Mandarin. However someone used technology to help us I.e Chinese-- English SMS translation The place was clean and the room comfortable. Breakfast was reasonably good.

It's my second time to stay at this hotel. The price is quite high, but the price of all hotels in Harbin during the Ice and Snow festival are high. There is nothing wrong with the rooms, and the location is excellent. The hotel looks old, but part of the point of staying here is that it is old. The... More

“Rooms closest to the hotel lobby has strong wifi, whereas rooms farthest away has very weak or no wifi signal. I had to sit next to my room door to use the hotel wifi. The Ying Bin building rooms are definitely nicer than the VIP building.”

“Maybe opt for the business rooms? Seems other reviewers put a higher value on those.”
