Very nice hotel, away from the CBD and airport and in more of a quiet area but had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Internet is slow and is not wireless in the rooms, still censorship in China and things like Google do not work. Very few people in the Hotel spoke any English but it was always possible to get what you wanted, it just took a little bit longer. One review said there was a shuttle from the airport to the hotel but this is incorrect. Only way to the hotel is via taxi which is a short ride costing around eight US dollars. The area is very clean, surprisingly clean and I enjoyed my stay.
This is my second stay at this hotel and it has been a consistently pleasant experience. It is a 15 minute hotel shuttle ride to the airport or a 40 minute taxi ride to the main train station downtown.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. There is no mark against the front desk to staff or the maids and the security guard. They provided me everything I asked for and helped me get to tourist scenic spots. The lobby was nice, the rooms were okay, I did not find the restaurant promoted with the hotel. Location was decent, your next to a temple and a large walking path that during the night is used by dance groups, so its fun to see. And, your around the corner for the Tianjin Eye. I would recommend staying at the other Green Tree Inn that is near ancient city (Goddess temple area). At that location you are more in the downtown area. I felt relatively safe, with a kernel of doubt for the last night when I watched call girls walk by to the room next to me and acros the hallway, which I soon after heard (said girls).
Room: It was okay. The bed was standrad hard spring box. The A/C never felt like it got cold and it was at its lowest. The room felt muggy, like everything was constantly damp. Bathroom....you NEED shower sandals. And, one cockroach came out on the first night (no others the rest of the week I was there). And, the view was of a construction site (but that is just China). You do get complimentary wired interent at okay speed, bottled water (everyday), and tea bags.
Overall, the hotel lives up to its 2 star marks, and I would only recommend this hotel if you are looking for something cheap and do not plan to stay in the room (other than sleeping).
