Indeed, some of the reviews say it, the hotel has seen its best days. The lobby and seating area looks impressive, the coffee shop and the breakfast there is excellent and the pool (25m!) plus gym great. BUT, please, change the carpets. They are full of stains and in the passage ways you see the traces of millions of luggage pieces dragged along...
It is a pity, as I wonder how much this would cost to upgrade.
Staff is very helpful, newspaper at the door, all is great.
Regarding the location? They are currently building the Qingdao subway system and there is a huge building site in front of the hotel. In general the city is extremely dusty, lots of industry along the road from the airport and the air pollution horrible in the month I visited (August). For I holiday, sorry, I would not recommend it.
