The hotel is conveniently located with plenty of restaurants and shopping malls within walking distance, it's also close to the site of the sailing events from the 2008 Beijing Olympics. My room was large and clean, bathroom with separate bath and and a great shower. I checked out the "Rumba Cigar Bar", it was a Thursday night and the bar was quiet but I noticed a plaque on the wall for an award for "best nightlife bar" in 2010, and Friday nights being ladies night.
Great hotel ”
Friendly, sophisticated service in a fabulous property , which is next to Olympic marina center . Access to the Club Lounge makes this a fabulous place to stay, and their staff are great. In particular , I will like to compliment club lounge staff , Leon liu and guest relations officer , Cici You for providing dedicated and attentive service to us during the two nights stay . Additionally , will like to thank the aircon uncle ( very friendly ) who visited our room (1908) on 23/2@ 12 plus am to adjust the room temperature and also the two ladies who delivered the birthday cake in the late evening to our room .
The hotel is quite dated now and I don't think it's been renovated since it was opened 10 years ago. Ate in the Italian restaurant and our starters arrived after the main course. Walked down to the spa and gym and there was a wedding party on and the whole place stunk off cigarettes and Chinese spirits. Not really conducive to promoting the health and fitness facilities. The only positive thing I can say is the location is good if you want to be close to the marina but there are far better hotels for similar price which are also not far from the downtown and marina,
Nice Spacious Hotel”
The hotel is modernly decorated and centrally located. Good facilities and well done rooms. The food and service is good. Nice spa to relax yourself after a hectic business day. The breakfast has a nice spread with a variety of food and not restricting to the typical chinese cuisine.
High Quality Chinese Hospitality”
I sent a few nights at this hotel on a recent visit to China and found it excellent The hotel is in the upper price range and similar service can be found at other large hotels at a better rate. Having said that though I cannot fault the impeccable service and quality of the hotel. Unfortunately all services were not operating as normal with increased security due to the APEC conference that was ongoing while I was there although the hotel managed around this seamlessly leaving the impression that that was normal mode of operation
nice experience accept overpriced but average food”
everything was great, but ordering room service was disappointing, over priced & average quality - i'd be surprised if they have a foreign F&B manager, don't order any type of ceasar salad for sure, but go for the added breakfast, it's worth it, the breakfast buffet is good & worth it, otherwise, EAT OUT!
Best service, comfortable bed, convenient location”
The service is on par with 5 star hotels and the facilities are great too. We signed up for Club Intercontinental which is an extra +15% service fees a night--but this granted us breakfast (not just continental), afternoon tea (which was great!) and internet. If paid separately, it would be more than for sure. I wouldn't say this hotel is best value for money since it is pricey, but it is good value since we had a great experience.
Nicely located beside the Olympic harbour”
this was our first visit to qingdao and this hotel was recommended by our supplier. a very plesant stay and trully excellent staff. i have to especially mention the concierges jason and light. we had become seperated from our luggage in guangzhou because of a late connection and they helped us through this. also when received my laptop had disappeared from my bag which necessitated a rather long visit to the local police station for which light accompanied me in his off duty time - and wouldn't take any compensation from me for that. all really beyond the call of duty.
Smells fantastic when you enter the hotel”
the hotel ambience is fantastic and really feels and smells good when you enter. the staffs is also helpful and willing to help. we stay at the lobby for bar music and relax with wines, very good service and clean environment. will definitely return for holiday with family.
It was nice to stay here. Hotel staff is really helpful and friendly, the room was nice and comfortable.

Good Value for money hotel”
centrally located hotel with fantastic sea view. truly a international class hotel and will definately stay here again.
Excellent hotel / Service ”
everything is nearly perfect in this hotel. Very impressive of the lobby, that is one of most spectacular of hotel i had stayed. Besides, the excellent service of the concierge.
Pros: Loved the view of the city and Marina from the hotel room. Pillows, bathtub, gym, and pool were all quite nice. Cons: The hotel was very close to some big shopping centers, but a bit far from the main attractions of the city itself. The area where the hotel is located is quite sterile. Having stayed at several ICs all around the world, I was a little surprised by the lack of fluent English speakers among the hotel staff, even at the front desk! Luckily I speak Mandarin and could make myself understood, Staff in the buffet restaurant were terrible! I didn't book a breakfast package, so they interrupted us FIVE TIMES during the meal to inquire my room number, even though I had already told them that I would pay separately for my food. That was ridiculous. The lobby is a typical hotel lobby in China, that is, totally garish and unpractical. On-site prices for food and amenities were what you'd expect at a typical Intercontinental, it just wasn't a great price-to-quality ratio.
A 5 Star Hotel”
My 4 nightes stay at Intercon was great. The location is just in front of the Olympic yacht club, good surroundings with a few small malls within walking distance. There are also two major shopping malls just five mintues walks from the hotel. The hotel staffs, including the ones at the restaurents are great. Rooms are big with daily complimentary fruits and a pillow menu. Only complaint I have is the air conditioning in the room. It is somehow very stuffy and too warmth for me; can't adjust thru the remote as it seems to be centrally controlled.
Contemporary style rarely seen in Qingdao”
having stayed in the intercontinental qingdao a second time, i'm pleased to note that the service and quality / cleanliness of the rooms remain consistent. the style adopted by this hotel remains a level above the older hotels in qingdao.
I have never been more disappointed in a hotel which claims to be five star. The actual hotel is really nicely designed and the rooms are spacious, clean with all the amenities you would expect and a lovely view over the marina (except for the cold shower on the first night). Which just goes to prove what a difference staff make in the hospitality industry - at best it appeared as if they were just not well trained but at worst they were incredibly rude and unhelpful. Examples - waiting for a drink at the hotel bar while the three bar staff talk with their backs to the customers and ignoring their requests, placing leftover food outside the room for disposal only to have it brought back into the room, being told that the bell staff can't help organize you a taxi (when the hotel is in quite an awkward location), having your bag taken away during check-out only find it left unattended in the middle of the lobby, and the list goes on. I am not usually a demanding customer when travelling for business or pleasure but this stay left my blood boiling. Would highly recommend staying elsewhere if visiting Qingdao!
Not what you re used to from Intercontinental ”
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and after the 1st night there was no housekeeping service to fix the bed and change the towels. Also there is no SPA as advertised .
