I did not expect to see this type of beautiful architecture, very well maintained. It is really cool. To see this kind of European style on such a grand scale gives one a new perspective of this city.

A surprisingly enjoyable museum in the basement of this historic hotel which gives you rich accounts of the emergence of Tianjin and the hotel from the 19th century to present day. I also enjoyed a lovely buffet lunch in the hotel.

What a fascinating little museum in the basement of the Hotel. 150 years of history is covered extremely well and is well worth the visit. Afternoon tea for 2 is very pleasant and at only 98rmb makes for a nice visit to this lovely venue.

It is really nice to see this old hotel, and check the ability to transform in a new hotel by Chinese. The museum in the basement is unmissed to know the history of the hotel and Tianjin. Enjoy!
