“a hotel whose time is past”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I've stayed here twice in the last 6 months but will not return. This hotel was once the pride of Jiaozhou, now the only solution will be to tear it down. The rooms needed updating 10 years ago, the place is just over-used. Spend the extra $25 and book a room at the new Sheraton.

The reason is that the place looks like it's 100 years old. Reminded me of the hotel on the movie The Shining with mold.
Maybe the price is good but I wore the slippers in the shower because I didn't want my feet to touch the tub.
Depends on your expectations. If you are paying out of your pocket, go for it. If the company pays and you can handle the travel, the Holiday Inn in Qingdao is much better. The vibrating comdoms for sale in the bathroom is a dead give away. If you're a Westerner, hookers will call your room to set up a trick. Talk about room service!
I'm going to give the Sunshine Hotel a try. We went there for lunch today. Review to follow.

Room Tip: No smoking means there are not ashtrays and matches all over the room?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2009

I had been to Qingdao during the first week of November. Century Hotel was suggested by a business friend, whom I had gone to visit to.

The reception is huge and nice. The rates per night were around 50 USD, being off season and all. Most of the staff members dint understand English, but they had a couple of English speaking attendants, who would assist me for any query. Overall nice and quick service.

I stayed in a standard room. It was extremely spacious, with two separate beds, a heater (temperatures being around 4-8 degrees during the night), TV, Refrigerator, and a LAN Cable for Internet. The ambiance was brilliant. In the night, we spent time playing Pool and Bowling. For the restaurant, I could only eat fruits, being a pure vegetarian Hindu from India. I had already carried food along from India.

I visited several companies in the cities of Qingdao, Jiazhou and WeiFang. I would only tell them the hotel's name and they would drop me to the right place. Century hotel definitely is one of the most famous hotels near Qingdao and also recommended by the local companies.

Overall a very good hotel and probably the best if you are on a business trip.
