This is a very attractive 4 star hotel with excellent service, however, transport to the city center is a big problem. It only cost 159 rmb/ night, but to avoid an overcrowded slow bus, no. 1 or no. 8, you can take bus 518 to Houyan light rail station then take the light rail to Dalian Railway Station. Otherwise, take a taxi for about 12 rmb to Houyan light rail station. Total travel time then is 30 mins. It's adjacent a village, so buy food before you get here.
