I visited the Astor hotel museum as a paid visitor (RMB 50.00). I thought the fee was rather high considering that it is only a small private museum with only one worker at the entrance. However, once inside, you realise that this is no ordinary...More

The Astor hotel is amazing and so beautiful! Truly an iconic piece of history. The museum is small, should take you roughly 30 minutes to complete it, however walking around the hotel is nice and their restaurant is also great!

A very nice hotel located in Heping District. The old building of the hotel is still kept the same and the new building is more modern and adds a very contrasting touch to the entire hotel. A luxurious property on its own. The museum is...More

We came across this building whilst wandering around Tianjin. It is a beautiful old building, with an interesting museum. A great place to look around as the building has great architect and a grand foyer etc.

we have visited the Chinese restaurant in this hotel in August 2013 when we first arrived in Tianjin. What a mistake! The hotel has a long history, but the food and the service of the restaurant probably only took the heritage from the cultural-revolution part....More

The interesting part of this hotel lies in the basement museum. It tells the story of that era from the point of view of the hotel. Also, the "back entrance" of the hotel offers a good spot to take photos. Just across the road, there's...More
