28th May 2015 - Kempinski Hotel Harbin opens its doors. As the first Kempinski Hotel in Heilongjiang Province, out of the 22 currently situated in China, Kempinski Hotel Harbin is set to become the leading luxury hotel in the Icy City, combining exclusive European flair with luxury facilities and service concepts.
As the capital of the Heilongjiang Province, the city of Harbin is renowned as “Oriental Paris,” with its climate shifting between a snow kingdom in winter to an oasis in summer. The architecture of the city has a distinguished and historic style, owing to both Chinese and Western influence. The stately Saint Sophia Cathedral, the mysterious Nicola Church, the Russian-style wooden house, the elegant and chic Gothic buildings, Central Streets’ European architecture, the annual music concert "Summer of Harbin", the Ice and Snow Festival, and the International Trade Fair, all reflect the unique charm of this city.
As the new landmark, Kempinski Hotel Harbin stands on the north bank of the Songhua River and presides over the Songbei District. The hotel is close to many famous tourist attractions including the Jinhewan Wetland Park, the Siberian Tiger Park, the Sun Island Scenic Spot, Harbin Polarland, and the world-famous Harbin Ice & Snow World. It is located only 20-minutes from the Harbin Railway Station, 25-minutes from Harbin West Station of High Speed Railway and 35-minutes from Harbin Taiping International Airport.
The hotel offers 350 rooms including 32 suites, of which the majority feature a river view. As one would expect of the finest business and leisure hotels, every room is elegantly designed and equipped with high ceilings of 3.9m and graced with large panoramic window to present an unsurpassed view of the Songhua River. A walk-in bath space with separate bathtub and toilet bring you a private spa-like environment to aid in brushing away travel fatigue.
The hotel features a range of distinctive restaurants and bars including Collections International buffet Restaurant, Longyuan Chinese Restaurant, Paulaner Restaurant & Bar, Lobby Lounge and Executive Lounge, catering for all tastes and occasions. For more intimate dining, our specially designed room service menu offers a selection of international and local cuisines available 24 hours.

Five multi-function rooms and 1 VIP Room will meet all the demands for a comprehensive conference.
