“Very nice hotel for business trip.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Went here almost two years ago and the hotel was very nice business trip. The room was really nice and everything about the room was perfect. It was clean but the air condition wasn’t perfect. But the location wasn’t really good, not too bad though. Breakfast was good and a lot to choose from.

As mentioned in previor posts, the Holiday Inn is located in the Aqua City complex.

It is located just next to a subway station, so getting around is quite easy. Thanks to the mall, shopping is no problem, as is going out for lunch and dinner.

The Hotel is a standard Holiday Inn. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. A problem is the cleanliness of the rooms. Behind the curtain was a plastic bottle from someone else. This should not happen in a Holiday Inn. The bathroom was clean once we checked-in, but it was not really cleaned carefully the whole 3 days we staid in. On the floor you could see water spots from the shower. Another problem is aircon. Although outside temp is around 20°, inside room temp is between 25° and 28° Celsius. Aircon is not working because of the low outside temperature, but windows can't be opened because of wind pressure. They shut immedeately and they are very thin. The wind goes through and as does the noise from outsside.

The Pool is on the 4th floor and a little hard to find because there are so signs. The staff at the reception on the 4th floor does not speak english. I had to go 4 times to the reception until I had my towel, swimcap and key for the locker. A receptionist should know that if you ask for the pool, he should give you things like towel and key without asking. Fortunately I had a picture dictionary and could point to the things I need. You might wanna bring some earplugs too. The echo in the pool is amazing :-)

Breakfast is OK. Lots of choice for lovers of asian cuisine. The western choice is much smaller, bread, butter, honey, strawberry jam, cornflakes and eggs and saussages. But if one likes asian breakfast, the choice is really good. But there is a "Tous les Jours" just outside of the hotel where you can have breakfast too.

Staff, that is a little problem. They are friendly but without english, you really have a hard time here.

In the end, you get what you pay for. The hotel is OK for the price you pay, but nothing really special.

Room Tip: Choose a room to the back

We stayed two nights in this Hotel, arrived very late from Shanghai, after moving in the room (check-in for China in high speed) it was a smoking room. This is for me absolute no go, after a short discussion with the front-desk I got an free upgrade to a small suite on the business floor.
Room clean, everything there what is necessary, only the AC was not able to work in the right way. But no problem, switched off and it was still warm enough.
Breakfast very good, nice selection, also at 6:00 in the morning you get your omlett :-)
Overall would go back to this hotel again.

I spent 2 nights at this hotel while in Tianjin for business. The staff was good but I wasn't impressed with the rest of the hotel. As mentioned in other reviews not all of the staff speaks English but there is always someone available that does so I didn't find this to be a problem. Check-in was fine but when the concierge took me up to my room, which was a non-smoking room, the smell of smoke was very strong. I am used to this in China but this was bad. The staff quickly change (and upgraded) my room. The air conditioning in the room was very poor and would not cool down. I did complain and they were going to change my room but the AC is a central system and the temperature of the air is the same throughout. The internet service is also slow and the connection would cut out from time to time. Since I travel frequently being able to Skype home is very important for me. The breakfast wasn’t not the greatest and I had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was average. The highlight of this hotel is the staff but given the other problems I will find another hotel next time I am in Tianjin.

I have been in this hotel 4 times in several seasons (July, November, January and now again in July). I had a very good stay in terms of quality of the room (space, service, cleaning, confort). About the general services, I've noted that the staff is sometimes not consistent in thei attentiveness to guests. Also the receptionists don't speak english so well, with some problems in the relationship with guest. Internet available in the room, Wifi and with cable, but the line is not so speed sometimes. Breakfast very good in terms of service and buffet quality and quantity. For the dinner the service is not so good. Please remember to ask for a room away from the main road, very noisy also during the night. Hotel well positioned but if you need to go downtown the taxi is needed and sometime you cannot find it in front of the hotel but you have to stop it along the way.

Sono stato per 4 volte qui in diverse stagioni (luglio-novembre-gennaio ed ancora luglio). Ho soggiornato in una bella camera in termini di servizio, pulizia, accessori. Ho notato un personale non sempre attento verso il cliente, soprattutto alla reception il livello di inglese non aiuta il rapporto col cliente. Internet è disponibile in camera (wifi e con cavo) ma la linea non è sempre veloce. Colazione buona, in termini di servizio e disponibilità del buffet. Per la cena invece, siamo a livelli più bassi. Se possibile chiedete una camera lontano dalla strada principale, molto rumorosa anche di notte. Posizionato bene, ma per andare in centro serve un taxi che spesso non stazionano davnti all'hotel ma devi cercare e fermare lungo la strada.

I stay here fro 7 nights with my son on business trip, and it's clean with nice smell (compare the air pollution out side).
Room is comfortable and good size, no bath tube but sower is good. there was a construction outside so hotel provided pair of ear plugs, but the noise is not noticeable so I do not use them.
Service is calm and nice, no funny girls phone call in the night like some other Chinese hotel.
there are not many breakfast service around, so I suggest book the hotel breakfast. or walk 200 meters for MacDonald.
Subway is almost down stair.

This was my second stay at this hotel in Tianjin and it was consistently good both times. The room was large and well-equipped, with comfortable furniture and was very clean. The staff were not consistent in their attentiveness to guests. Some were great, others would look the other way if they saw you looking for them. Both mornings that I was there, the coffee machine was not functioning in the breakfast buffet. Other than that, the food was good, with a wide selection of options available from cereal, to cooked to order omelets, and anything else you might want. The gym had good equipment but was limited to 3 treadmills and no elliptical machines. IF possible, get a room away from the main road. Even on the 21st floor, the traffic noise was quite loud and started very early in the morning.
