Luxury hotel opens on Soviet aircraft carrier at Binhai Aircraft park in Tianjin
The country’s first ex-naval hotel opened on a former Soviet aircraft carrier in Tianjin on May 1.
The park’s parent company is reported to have spent an estimated US$15 million on the transformation and finished the refitting of three presidential suites last August.
The nightly rate for the 148-room hotel ranges from RMB 988 for a standard double to a staggering RMB 28,888 for the 400-square-meter presidential suites.
There is also a three-room family suite, which occupies roughly 100 square meters and costs RMB 8,888 to check in for a night.
Binhai is currently promoting an annual membership towards deep-pocketed Chinese travelers. For RMB 750,000 a year, the guest will have full access to all facilities onboard.
Binhai Aircraft’s vice marketing manager Mr. Liu noted that the company receives requests every year from visitors hoping to stay overnight on the Kiev, especially in the cabins in which sailors and officers once slept.
"The hotel will serve as a unique experience for a high-end clientele,” Liu told us. “It will not be ranked by stars, nor will it have a swimming pool or a gym.”
Aircraft carrier restaurant
Decked out in black, green and white, the 30-seat restaurant pays tribute to the Kiev’s heritage by serving mostly Russian dishes.
The aircraft carrier restaurant will open non-stop from breakfast till 10 p.m. after the hotel officially opens.
