This hotel is excellent..5 star facilities. Good dinner buffet in the first floor restaurant, the a la carte menu from the Chinese restaurant on the 3rd floor is very good. The staff are very helpful, particulary "Jenny" (I think it was) at the front desk.
There are just 2 strikes against here, 1 is very minor.
The Chinese lunch buffet isnt worth it. Had it one day and found very little worth eating and nothing to recommend it. Would have been better and cheaper to just get some fried rice and sweet and sour pork from the normal menu. Not a big thing though.
The other is.. Only stay in this hotel if you have business in the immediate area. I was in a hurry booking and mistakenly booked here thinking it was somewhat near Qingdao (since Qingdao is in the hotel name..it shouldnt be). To get to Qingdao is an hour long bus ride or taxi (taxi will charge 250RMB+, the bus is just 20RMB, but you need to take a taxi to the bus station). If youre on business its perfect. If youre sight seeing/travelling then dont stay here.
Me and my husband enjoyed or stay in this luxury hotel. The service and room service are perfect and all the staff from the reception to the chambermaid are very polite and helpful. The room was exceptionally comfortable.
We will come back again to this hotel.
