This hotel was booked by our travel agent for us when we visited Harbin to see the Ice & Snow Festival in January 2015. Hotel was quite adequate for our needs. Not much English spoken by staff, but that was OK as they tried hard to satisfy our needs. Rooms were in need of an update, but otherwise were perfectly... More

Stayed here in January 2015 with a tour visiting the Harbin Ice & snow festival. Rooms were clean with good quality linen and usual extras TV, internet in lobby (not room). Mainly Chinese guests with some efforts to accommodate western needs at breakfast. A fairly typical hotel.

We were there for 3 nights as part of a tour. Breakfast was good but the rooms were basic and needed new carpet and a paint job. The bathroom looked like something from an isolated mining camp. The staff were very good and helpful. The beds are the hardest I have ever experienced and friends told me the mattresses were... More

We were here in January 2013 as part of a tour group visiting the Ice Festival - Harbin's top attraction making this the peak time. The room was nice and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect except that the TV provided only Chinese channels - no CNN or BBC. But we were only there to sleep so no... More

I went to Harbin to see the Ice Lantern Festival in January 2005 and stayed at the Milky Way Hotel, described as 3 star or 4 star depending on which website you visit. Hotel accommodation in Harbin is far cheaper than in Beijing. My rate at the Milky Way Hotel was about AUS$80 (about 450 yuan) per night. The room... More
