Great Location

Location, Historical, Friendly staff
Most of the staff spoke decent enough English "enough to get by", they were helpful to our requests. The Hotel was clean and had some very interesting antiques on display. The room was clean and above all warm, maybe too warm. The breakfast was a little to be desired. It was...well...very Chinese but we are China after all. There are plenty over spots to eat nearby. The location was the biggest seller for us. It is slap bang in the middle of the main street and we pretty much walked everywhere we would be go Sofia, Zhaolin Park, and Songhau river are all within 15mins if not closer. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend it to others. A great experience and certainly more unique than the big chains you might usually stay at.

The "Moderne" in the 21st Century

A great location, a terrific sense of history and pleasant and attentive service.
I had read about this hotel, (and the famous kidnapping/murder of its owner's son), as a result of some research I had been undertaking, and wanted to experience it for myself, so when a research trip to Harbin was called for, it was inevitable that I would stay here. The hotel is well-placed for anyone who wants to see the few remaining bleached white bones of Imperial Russia's influence in Harbin. It has more historical artifacts on display in the lobby than all the museums that I visited, and the staff are pleasant and helpful. I would stay there again if I went back.

Great location

Historic pleasant hotel, very close to main pedestrian street
Very little English, not necessarily catering for international tourists. Pleasant stay, location and room.

Average Hotel could do with a makeover.

This is an old hotel that could really do with a bit of a renovation in the rooms. It was very clean & the lobby area was nice. The coffee in the cafe was horrible & very expensive. No Wifi in the rooms so you had to resort to sitting in the lobby. The staff were very nice though had limited English. Even though we had paid in full we still had to provide another cash deposit on check in. I had trouble locating my receipt & the girl didn't want to return my deposit without it even though they had records that I paid, luckily it was found in our room by the cleaning staff. Also the windows in our room were covered with ugly plastic sheeting which I felt was unacceptable for a hotel of this standard. Beds were also very hard but I realise this is very typical for a lot of Asian countries. My sons have previously stayed at the Ibis which is a lot cheaper & thought the Modern Hotel was not worth the extra money.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Snow & Ice World is brilliant.

Where else would you stay

location, staff, services
while the room was not renovated (which we didn't mind, being China buffs), the staff at the hotel more than made up for it, and the location was great for everything we wanted to do. Staff helped organize trips to the ice festival, let us check in super early (9am), and also booked a car to the tiger park. perhaps would have been made a little harder if you don't speak chinese,
Travel tip: see the tigers-- they are amazing! it's about 30-40 minutes out of town, can nicely fill up an afternoon or morning.

old hotel

odl hotel
this is a historic hotel with new sections. Location and service are both good. We arrive late and no lights on. The old one is good looking and the new one is 'old'. Bathroom water slow and the toilet is slow too. They need to upgrade that. If you go to Harbin, be prepare for the transportation problem because it is difficult to call a taxi and the hotel do not have and car available.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Walking distance to the street and river side. Lots of shops and restuarents. Winter is good time to be there.

Lovely hotel and great location.

in a hot historical site, near the Madieer cafe where the yogort is my favorite. And the Song-Hua River bank has been always my favouite place to spend my leasure time. More amazingly, the room even has a small refrigeritor, very convienient. The room was sound proof, pretty quirte. Even more lovely, there is beautiful live piano performance in the lobby that would make you forget all of the stress.
the major issue that 'killed' me was the smoking and smoke. the smoke is all over the hotel, even in my room. i had to cover my face/nose with a towel. the second problem was the air conditioner was not working at the gear "3". the highest (coldest) it worked was gear "2". the inconvenient part was that the hotel does not have an atm cash machine and does not have foreign currency exchange service. regardless, i would stay again at the madieer/morden hotel next time i visit harbin.

Lovely hotel and service was very pleasant.

Great location
Great location although it did take 1.5 hours in peak traffic from the airport in a taxi, early morning it on took 30 mins. We walked to most attractions that we wanted to see in our short time there and we're very happy.

 レストランに昼食をしに行った。ウェイトレスがEnglishと言う言葉を知らない。どう話をしても通じない。私は椅子で待ったが20分しても誰もやってこない。メニューすら来ない。さっき話の通じなかったウェイトレスは頻繁に私の前を通るのだが、知らん振り。結局20分して席を立ってレストランを出るしかなかった。  ロビーのカフェ、メニューからアイスカフェラッテをそして友達はカフェマキアートを頼む。ウェイターはホットコーヒーを持ってくる。相手の中国人はウェイターにアイスカフェラッテて言ったでしょうと詰め寄るが、彼らはカフェラッテがどう言うコーヒーか知らない。そして70元のところを95元請求する。それは2日連続で続いた。さすがに2日目は連れの中国人が怒った。するととりすぎた25元を戻しに来た。悪びれもせず、誤りの一言もない。  相当腕の悪いピアニストが、調律の出来ていないピアノで下手なピアノを弾く。私が曲を注文した。当然彼は知らない。と言うより英語で書かれた英語の曲を彼が読めない。この本の中から選んでくれと言うので、仕方なしに選んだ。  勘定の時にやけに高いので何故かと聞いたら、ピアノの曲を注文したから100元だと言う。世界中30ヶ国を旅行してきて、ピアノ曲を注文し、金を取られた(1曲100元1250円)のは、後にも先にもこのホテルのピアノ弾きだけだ。  ここのホテルの従業員もまた、英語に関心がない。
