We stayed for two nights on the weekend the beer festival opened. Unfortunately, the setup started at 6am of the first morning making sleep difficult, though this was of course no fault of the hotel. Luckily the festival itself shuts down at 11pm every night meaning we walked home in under five minutes and slept well the next night. Wifi... More

This hotel was obviously once a jewel in the Blue Horizon crown. It's now a bit on the dated side. It really needs a refit of its rooms to keep up with other hotels. Having said that, the staff made it a great stay. They could not have been more helpful and polite.

While my stay was limited to one night, it was acceptable: obviously once a truly luxurious hotel, it is in need of renovation to claim this now. Good area (lots of restaurants and bars), good sized room, acceptable bath, but all quite tired and worn. Breakfast was varied but rather cool, literally: food from the 'hot' pans were inexplicably tepid.

I've stayed at the Blue Horizon more than 10 times in the past 5 years, usually when business clients visit our Qingdao facility about 20 minutes away. The rooms are big enough and kept clean. The downstairs restaurant has all of the fresh food and fresh fish in tanks for you to choose from; the food quality is very good.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. I took a deluxe room which is quite large. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The only criticism I have is the air conditioning system: I guess cooking works only during summer. Even with the A/C off the room never got cooler than 23C which is too warm for me to sleep....

I only stayed here for 1 night. My client: Sepco, booked this Hotel for me (ask for their rates). It is a good business hote next to the convention center. Although I asked for a non smoking room, I got a smoked one. I think non smoking rooms don't exist in China. The bed was very hard, but that is... More

This hotel was a decent hotel of Qingdao, not as nice as others I've stayed at in Shenzen, but very functional. Room was reasonably clean, plenty of power outlets at the desk, but no 110 with US plugs like other hotels catering to western business travelers occasionally have, but that's not a big deal. Bed was decent, mattress was borderline... More

Very nice hotel in an excellent place in a good area. Clean, attractive room. (Hard bed, like always in PRC.) Good service. However no pool nor even a small "gym" or work-out room. On same block as a large "super-store" with clothes, electronics, food, etc. Nice buffet restaurant in the hotel with zillions of things to choose from at all... More
