This hotel has lots of character and is really beautiful. I accidentally booked the Victorian room instead of the rooms in the heritage wing which I think would have been nicer, but the Victoria rooms were nice too. The furniture was really nice, there was lots of space and huge bathrooms with separate bath and shower, and walk in wardrobe. It had all the amenities and toiletries one needed, and although not 100% perfect the atmosphere and the service and willingness to try to help made up for it. The O'hara bar was also really nice and had lots of character. It's great having the museum in the hotel. Wifi is unfortunately not free in the rooms, but it is free in the lobby. I think the rooms facing the river may be better though as the room facing the other way was a little loud due to some machine outside. The reception were helpful and friendly and they provided a good map with magazine etc. This place is different from many in China and makes a really nice change. I would definitely stay here again if in Tianjin, but perhaps next time I would try one of the heritage rooms. The room where they serve afternoon tea is really nice too.
