I have arrived Sangri La in Qingdao in late afternoon. Waht immediatelly has put me off was tremendous crowd and nise in the reception area. They had a conference there (but it sounded as if all conferences of the world were being held in the same place...). Check-in was smooth although I got a question most of traelers truely love - although you booked a non-smoking room, would you mind if we changed it to a smoking one as we are overbooked...? Sure I would!
The room was spacious but a bit rund-down. Windows were not nise-tight which I reasilsed around 5 am in the morning. Nice way to overcome a jet lag... I went to the reception to change the room from City Wing (old part of the hotel) to Valley Wing (new part). The change was qiuck, problem free.... if not for the fact that I got a king room! But that was corrected within hours.
Since then a true paradise started! Great room, splendid sea view, friendly and extremely attentive staff, good restaurants, one of biggest breakfast buffets I have seen (Chinese, Japanese, European cuisine in several buffets) spacious and well equipped health club. Pure pleasure to relax after a day of doing business!
I will be coming back for this exceptional eperience!
