Where to stay in Tianjin

The large city of Tianjin has more than enough accommodations to cater to the different tastes of its visitors. Just take a look at the central districts of Hedong, Hebei, and Hexi. Towering over the central area, an abundance of high-rise hotels offer rooms and facilities both budget and upmarket, and convenient access to the main transport hubs, shops, and sights. If you're planning on staying in town for a while, consider renting an apartment in one of the more residential districts further out.
