“Unexpectedly Nice”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I did not expect to see this type of beautiful architecture, very well maintained. It is really cool. To see this kind of European style on such a grand scale gives one a new perspective of this city.

“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

A surprisingly enjoyable museum in the basement of this historic hotel which gives you rich accounts of the emergence of Tianjin and the hotel from the 19th century to present day. I also enjoyed a lovely buffet lunch in the hotel.

“Educational”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This wasn't a huge hall of exhibitions but instead it was located on the basement of the hotel. Exhibition area wasn't tiny though. It is a must place to visit if you are interested in history of China during the last.... let's say.... 200 years. Very educational. Nicely decorated. Almost all of them were displayed in conventional English. Not cheap though.

“Great small museum”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

What a fascinating little museum in the basement of the Hotel.
150 years of history is covered extremely well and is well worth the visit. Afternoon tea for 2 is very pleasant and at only 98rmb makes for a nice visit to this lovely venue.
