Buena Vista Gulf Hotel
Ranked #35 of 397 Hotels in Yantai
Reviewed 9 October 2016

One of my regular places to stay in Yantai. It has always been a good value with friendly service. This time, though, I am disappointed to say that their service level has dropped tremendously. Rooms are not generally cleaned as well, nor requests for service or laundry handled promptly. There is a general sense of apathy among the new staff. What a pity. The location and the ocean view still are fantastic. They have expanded their menu quite a bit, perhaps to cater to more overseas visitors. I even saw something similar to Borscht on the menu.

Room Tip: Any room facing the sea. If you can upgrade to the Spa rooms

Really nice hotel. Counter staff are courteous and friendly. The room is big with attached bathroom. The shower area comes with nice features such as overhead raining-type showerhead, corrugated floor strip and see-through glass screen to the bedroom. The interior of the guest room have a modern style deco with pleasant warm colour theme. The room also have all essential accessories and stuff a 4 star hotel should have. Consistent stable wi-fi.
Breakfast is one of the best compared to other Chinese hotels that I stayed. There are good variety of Chinese food and Western food to choose from.
The hotel sets the view with wide horizon of the Yellow Sea on one side and lush greenery hillside on other. The park-garden fronting the hotel gives a perfect touch to the whole setting to these marvelous hotel.

Very nice rooms with bathtub with a "view". When you sit in the tub you can see the marvelous sea and follow the view. And this from pretty much every room.
Rates are reasonable considering that Yantai is a tier 3 city, but there are much more pricier choices in Yantai. Breakfast is Chinese style, but have some western stuff. Service is very good, English capabilities are evident, so western travelers are not totally lost. Very good alternative to the international chains that are 30 % more expensive.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with tub at the window.

This is a surprisingly good hotel. The position is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Yantai, but well worth it. The rooms are excellent (same standard as Hyatt in my opinion) with a super shower and great decoration and very modern... staff are especially friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant is also very good. Very modern, clean and well designed throughout and great value.. On my return to the room I found a nicely worded note with a bunch of complimentary fresh fruit, a piece of cake and a drink. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Yantai.. 5+ stars!

Room Tip: All rooms look good... one side has sea views
