I plan to visit Harbin from 2012/1/24 till 28th. posssible to suggest any clean motel, with hot shower, between USD15-18 per night?
Aaron, I arrived in Harbin yesterday. You will spend more than that I'm afraid. I'm staying at Kunlun Hotel in downtown for just over 300rmb (about USD50). Most hotels are over 100USD. And very booked. Do yourself a favor and have reservation before you come, as it is VERY COLD here, and you don't want to be wandering around without a plan! guest replied on 2012-12-31
