I travel to Qingdao for business and have stayed at the Intercontinental the last few visits. The rooms are fairly standard for this chain. Service hovers at acceptable. I was disappointed with the restaurants this last trip.

I reckon this hotel does not put strict restriction or penalty against smoking in smoke-free rooms. All rooms that I checked (3 rooms on the first night and another 1 on the next day) have reek of cigarette smoke. I have my room changed 3 times during my 4 nights stay. Totally unacceptable! Breakfast (both at executively lounge or the... More

Arrived today and had the lunch buffet. Great rooms and good Chinese and Italian food. Fresh sushi and sashimi made in front of you. Very friendly staff at the reception desk and in the restaurant.Tonight to their Italian restaurant DOC. Seems to be the best in town.

I believe Qingdao is my favorite city in China. Nice Water Front and some of the best seafood. The pollution was not noticable, the city has an interesting history as well. Stayed at the Intercontinenetal Hotel, had a great breakfast buffet and served well even as crowded. The waterfront has a nice walkway for miles. Nice People as well. Again... More

Within walking distance to the coastline. Good for runners that want to avoid city traffic. Hotel room was cool, but it felt like the hotel itself was not air conditioned. After a cold shower, I was still dripping sweat at the breakfast buffet. The gym opens at 6am. Not exactly great for jet lagged travelers that are up at 4am!

Great location by the sea. Room had no sea view though. Nice lobby but room decorations and layout is not ideal. Fitness centre is disappointing and breakfast cafe is a real mess! Chinese restaurant offers good value though many items are on the menu are not available. Overall service is good.

Nice hotel in downtown Qingdao. Nice breakfast buffet with many choices. Lobby bar is just ok. Try to get a room on the even side of A tower for views of the harbor. Rooms are very comfortable and the amenities are awesome - Agraria products. Enjoy the hotel
