“Broken and unfixed boilder during winter = little heat = not expected from international brand motel”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Decent value and typical Ibis comfort. This particular chain is poorly managed as the boiler was supposedly "broken" (and remained unfixed for next 48hrs) resulting is little or no heat during my December stay. I was not the only guest complaining, but obviously to deaf ears. The front desk responded only that "they were working on the problem" - never was fixed. Also no complimentaary water and location is quite far from train station. There is a big supermarket that closes at 10PM and a 24hrs KFC within a block so getting food is very conveinent. The location (which is not in the nicer part of town) is a bit far from city center and very far from most attractions.

The official advertised distance says 10 mins from train station but this is simply not true. During rush hour, my taxi took an hour to arrive. By public bus (Qingdao has no subway yet) from the train station, approx. 30 mins.

The hotel reception is not very friendly. The hotel address is misleading as the entrance does not face the main road which is indicate in the booking. The shopping and entertainment areas is a distance from the hotel. Getting a taxi is stressful and getting a taxi back to the hotel is even more stressful as most does not know the hotel location. However, like me, I take the public bus and cost only RMB1 for every trip.

Overall it's a good stay. Check-in front-desk lady staff is nice.
Desk should be cleaned better, noticed a stain on it, had to clean it myself in order to use all the available desk space.
There is no basic 'Free in-room mineral water' as stated on website. Enquired but was told bottled water is not provided. Stayed at other Ibis in China before, and bottled water was provided. Thought the Ibis brand has some sort of standard to follow and hence should have similar design/look and same basic facilities/amenities. Clearly this was not the case with the bottled water, and this important thing was left out for a tired traveller checking-in late.
KFC is quite nearby.

After our totally disappointing experience at the ibis in Harbin China the Ibis Hotel Qingdao on Ningxia Road was a pleasant surprise, it was super clean and modern, the front desk staff were really great and most helpful. I would advise you to skip the breakfast though, as it was very disappointing, we only ate it one time and that was enough. Just up the street at the RT Mart is a KFC and they serve an egg on a bun with ham & cheese with a coffee for 10.00 Yuan and it's quite good, I advise go there instead. Buses to all parts of the city run right outside the door of the hotel which is very convenient. It's not the Ritz but for the price it's pretty good.
