The hotel lobby is impressive. The staffs are typical hospitable chinese flavor however the general construction quality outside the lobby are terrible. My bed is actually uneven, the right side is higher than the left by a lot. Carpet and electricals fitting are low quality. Nice try but still very crude.


Alright for one night stay

First visit to Qingdao and it was great. Stayed in an aqua suite - private terrace with tub is fantastic for relaxing and enjoying the AMAZING views. The club level room was good, but not as good as it could be. The view from the club room is nice, the staff are super helpful, but the snacking/drinks during the day could be improved (nothing really after breakfast until afternoon tea). The buffet on the 3rd floor is pretty good for breakfast. Nice variety and good quality, but can be noisy. Thoroughly enjoyed the location, the room size, bed, and bathroom amenities. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again if ever in Qingdao.

Room Tip: Aqua suite is great

So I stay in Qingdao a lot on business and tried the continental on this visit. Checked in to a normal room in D block. Read the guest pack to see what services were offered and was pleasantly surprised when it said leisure and business travellers could visit the club lounge on the 21st floor. No mention of any fees or restrictions. So I went up gave my room number and got a free coffee and snack. Only then did I get presented with a bill for the upgrade.

When I complained about this later to the reception about how the information in the room clearly indicated that I could use the facility with any mention of restriction or payment they said I was wrong. I do not expect to be told I am wrong as I am the customer and it is not clear that this benefit is restricted. I expected the benefit to only be for executive rooms but it did seem from trip advisor last 30 reviews they all had club access so thought it was a hotel feature to include it for all, hence why it was clearly written in the guest pack as available with out conditions.

With regards service - upon complaining the reception offered to mitigate my complaint by putting a fruit platter in my room. It never appeared.

I did enjoy the hotel pool which has a very nice atmosphere with day beds.

Beautiful modern hotel with great rooms and the lobby is awesome. I like the location along the water near the Olympic sites.

I was very disappointed with the dinner buffet quality of the food as well as attention. Buffet was $45 each. Not what you expect from Intercontinental chain.
