If you are travelling to Longkou China, the likelyhood that you are on business is pretty high!
The Gulf Hotel offers a comfortable stay with friendly staff at a good value!
This hotel is located in the economic development area of Longkou and there is not much near the hotel.
The area is very quiet and you will need to arrange transportation to go anywhere.
It is worth mentioning that nobody knows this hotel by the name of "Gulf Hotel". Rather it is known to the local taxi cab drivers as Hai Wai Hotel.
You probably want to print the name and address of the hotel in Chinese language to show taxis. This will make your efforts to communication much easier!!
During my stay, the hotel seemed very empty, all 25 floors, restaurants, bars and common areas were deserted!
However if you come with a group all the facilities desired are available.
The reception desk staff do speak english and the taxi cab drivers are very friendly!
Must be patient and creative to be understood!
The hotel restaurant is the best option for a a meal in the surrounding area.
Make sure to take your heavy coat! I visited in October and the temperatures were 5 to 10 deg C.
Overall a good place to stay and the best option in Longkou!
