This hotel was pleasing, rooms are big, double bed was huge which I always find a positive thing for a hotel, people were very kind I had a little trouble with hot water but it was immediately attended! I don't like much carpets on rooms specially if the hotel has been open for many years but is some thing you... More

The location of the hotel is good for Laoshan based activities, minimising traffic to/ from town. The district now has a range of restaurants. The hotel continues to age, the breakfast gets simpler every year. I assume management might be ready for a refresh. I believe there are better options nearby and worth checking out, offering better rooms, service and... More

I spent two weeks at this hotel. My first impressions of the interior was that it was a little dated. However, the rooms themselves are not dated, they are clean, well kept and just what I'd expect from a high-standard hotel. After two weeks I could have found lots of faults but in fact the opposite happened. I came to... More

You would normally be travelling to Qingdao for a business reason because a Kiwi would not be there for the beach, but the beach is close and a nice for a walk. The hotel is reasonable dated but has good location within walking distance to the Exhibitions that are organised here, be it the beer festive or a motor shop.... More

The hotel is conveniently located in the High Tech Park near the beach, but farther from downtown and the main activity and traffic of the city. This location is great for business people with interests in the area but farther from the main tourist areas; the hotel is also close to the Qingyin expressway which goes to the airport and...

booked this hotel when nothing else was available near the beach. My first impression of the facilities was poor - it is an older hotel that really needs updating. However, the staff's superior training is highly evident- I found the service to be excellent. The buffet restaurant is also very good - I tried both the breakfast and the dinner,... More

I stayed here for two nights. The hotel has a good location. The food in hotel was very good, especially the lunch time buffet. My room was on the 7th floor and was large and well kept. The only question I would have is the shower arrangement, this was over a freestanding bath with no curtain so water everywhere.
