Hotel Preview: The Castle Hotel Dalian

Do you like fairytales? Then you’ll love The Castle Hotel Dalian. Located right at the sea, offering amazing views, the castle is stunning from the outside as well as in the inside. For everyone who ever wanted to stay in a dream castle does have the chance to do so now. The member of the Luxury Collection offers luxury in all regards.

Beautiful nature, a historic setting and a good location close to all major sights of Dalian. The Castle Hotel Dalian is one of few hotels which opened in the last years that may be a real must for each and every traveler on this world.

That’s especially the case for everyone who always wanted to be part of a fairytale. Even though The Castle Hotel Dalian looks a little overdone, it’s one of those hotels you’ll never forget again.

Opulent and generously sized rooms

When writing a hotel preview, the focus usually is on the rooms. However, at The Castle Hotel Dalian there are more important things. That’s underlinded by the fact that the hotel does rarely have any pictures of its large and spacious rooms on its website.

However, each and every room is pure opulence and luxury at the same time. Even the lowest room category called Deluxe Room offers 50 to 60 square meters (538 to 646 square feet) of space and marble bathrooms with a detached rain shower and a large bathtub. Even though the Deluxe Room already sounds amazing, it may be worth booking a Grand Room or one of the many suites of the hotel as all of those offer amazing views of the mountains or the sea.

A choice for kings and queens

Not very surprisingly, the Castle Hotel Dalian offers its guest a huge choice of different dining outlets to indulge. The “Royal Cellar” follows a European, in fact a German, approach offering freshly brewed beer (they even got a brewery!) and German specialties.
