Stayed in the Astor this last week for 3 nights. It is a lovely hotel with great rooms. Seems like good value to me as I paid about $135 for a big double room with a king size bed and fantastic bathroom. Had a view of the river and the building site which is opposite the hotel on the other side of the river. Staff were very efficient and pleasant, including predicting your needs- as I stood around in the lobby on checkout one of the staff asked me if I was the guy from room... who had a car booked for airport transfer as it was about to pull up in front of the hotel A nice new BMW as it turned out. Also, the pickup from the airport on arriving in Tianjin worked well. Breakfast was fine and there were nice little touches like an espresso machine in my room, so a chance to make a half reasonable cup of coffee - not something necessarily easy to find in Tianjin. Tried the room service which was quick and reasonably priced. We also spent some time in O'Hara's bar - where drinks were not exactly cheap, but it was a nice place to spend a few hours listening to the (quite good) pianist.
