This is an adequate hotel that I would rate at 3 stars. Arguably it has the best location in Dandong with perfect views across the friendship bridge to North Korea. The binoculars in the room are a quirky touch to enable you to have a good view across to the NK side. Dandong as a whole capitalises on its near location to the DPRK as a tourism draw card so this being the case you may as well stay in a hotel with a good location and a view. Rooms are ok, they are verging at being on the shabby side. Carpets need a good shampooing and probably replacing. Bathroom is also just ok but again needs some updating. Breakfast for me was not edible. It was a bad start when the milk curdled in the coffee and was complete when I noticed the bread for toasting had black marks on it. I presume it was mould. I left and went to a great coffee bar down the street called Peters. All in all an ok hotel for a night or two. Don't have high expectations and you won't be disappointed. Finally if you like your room hot you will love the room. Although it was about -4 outside, clothes were an optional extra inside the room it was so hot. Aircon was very difficult to regulate and as a final treat the in room safe did not work. Little English spoken or understood.
