My husband and I have just returned from a 3 week stay in Qingdao to help our son set up an English language services business there. The prospect of staying 20 nights in what is essentially a business hotel was not one we were really relishing. However from the moment we arrived until the time we left we were made to feel welcome by all the staff. The hotel itself was well appointed, clean and had a friendly feel to it. We don't speak any mandarin and were impressed how every member of staff spoke to us in English, so it felt like a haven of familiarity within a very different culture. The choices at breakfast were enormous but our conservative British tastes meant we didn't venture to try the more exotic dishes. We were a little more adventurous with the extensive buffet in the JOT restaurant where the manager Jerry Wang befriended us and sought to ensure that we were given everything we needed during our stay. Thanks to all for helping to make our stay in Qingdao so enjoyable - I really appreciated all the attention I received on my birthday too! We will certainly return to the Parkview next time we are in Qingdao.
