When you read about Dalian Seafood Restaurant, you know I was there before. Probably you will ask me this question, if happen that one day I go to Dalian, China, where should I stay?
I cannot possibly list all the options for you as there are many decent hotels around there but I can share with you where I stayed before this. I stayed under the highway bridge like those unfortunate one. That is obviously a lame line.
5 stars hotel is too expensive for me so I resorted in 3-4 stars hotel, Bohai Pearl Hotel Dalian. Bear in mind that 3-4 stars hotel over here is not exactly 3-4 stars ya! So, don’t have too high expectation on it.
This hotel is situated beside Dalian Train Station. How convenient if you are planning to go there by train, right? Only about 5 min walk, walla, the cozy hotel is just right there.
The hotel is a bit creepy as you walk in the lobby as they did not turn on the light during the day time. “Saving the energy” I presume.
The room rate was reasonable to me and I managed to get special discount when I book over the internet too! As you can see, the lists of the room prices are vary depending on which day you go! So, pick the right date.
From a quick glance, I noticed a small glitch on the notice board. The temperature shows 26 deg C. Honestly, this place is colder than you thought, I mean Dalian in general. So bring along your wind breaker.
The walkway to room is not impressive but the room is decent. I wouldn’t use the word classy but it is rather neat and tidy AND they still use the “Big Potato” TV. It makes me feel like I am travelling back to 80’s.
For bookworms, this room is not recommended as the lightings are meant for romantic ambience. Good if you can bring along your partners with you. Bet they are going to love it.
No COFFEE, only tea. This is just a reminder for coffee lover, please bring your own sachets of coffee just incase you are craving for it.
Like any other hotel, phone is provided in this room but all in Chinese. No option for language selection :p. So, don’t be surprise if none of them speak English when you call for room service.
The room comes with 2 bottles of complimentary drinking water and of course, toiletries as well. Although I am expecting slighting bigger bathroom but the size is just nice to fit ONLY one person at the same time.. hehe.
The bathtub is not the same like any other hotel. It is rather shallow to fill a fat.. I mean fit people like me. In general, this hotel is so so only but the price is reasonably cheap as compared to others. Remember, book online to get cheaper deal!
