I stayed here on holiday for twelve days in April.
This is a multi-storey hotel near to the Olympic village. Its location was excellent for me, being near the sea, the bar area on Yanerdao road, and a bus ride from the centre in one direction and the mountain Lao Shan and the coast attractions on the other.
The room was clean, had good furniture, everything worked, and was cleaned twice a day. Bedding was changed twice There was a good choice of TV stations. The view from the seventeenth floor was great. The outside windows were dirty through pollution, but halfway through the stay they were miraculously cleaned - abseilers?
The only niggle was that the free wifi worked inconsistently, and was especially poor during the last few days. The room rate wasn't cheap, but after all this is a business hotel and I did get a 15% discount for booking for a longer period. I didn't have breakfast, as I considered £14 rather expensive (even at a discounted rate).
The desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The door staff ordered me taxis immediately if I needed one and were able to give the drivers instructions to the sometimes obscure places I needed to be.
I am coming to Qingdao again next year and will almost certainly stay here again.
