Location is very good. close to the bridge. beautiful seaview. good restaurant is nearby (within 15 min by walk). the room is clean & the service of the staff is above average. the breakfast is ok & not boring. many scenery spots are within walking distance.
Nice Beach Hotel”
As in most China hotels, the bed was very hard. There is a shower tub & a separate shower stall, but the shower head in the tub could not be adjusted to shower mode. The hotel in general is showing its age & should be renovated. Overall, the hotel is still a good value if guests want to be really close to the beaches. The restaurant at the Prince Hotel, next door, is much better to eat at. I paid over USD 110 per night for a business city view room, which is ok for the beach location if that's important for you. Taking a stroll after dinner along the side walk is really nice. At 9 PM, many jewelry & hand craft sellers set up shop along the this side walk. I was particularly interested in pearls for gifts, cuz they were very cheap, with a little bargaining, especially if you buy in quantities. I bought a total of 20 looong necklaces for a total of RMB 2500. I could sell each of them for triple the price where I come from. We really enjoyed our visit to the Tsingdao Brewery, which was not very far by taxi from the hotel. Beer street should not be missed, either. The German/American neighborhood is also close be, as well as, the Aquarium, which should not be missed.
Oceanside, ocean view---great value in great city”
many hotels in qingdao are inland---several blocks or confined to the central business district. this hotel, though, is a 10-minute walk from the train station and directly across the street from a bay and zhan qiao pier.
Beds were very hard & u can feel the springs ”
Location wise, it's along the seaside stretch which is a sightseeing destination for Qingdao. Neighborhood had some German bldg like churches n shops which was pleasant to walk ard. However, if you need to find malls and decent food, u need to take a bus ride for at least 20mins from opp the hotel towards the CBD area, 15mins to get to badaguan or 1hr to Laoshan. Bus is a v cheap way to get ard qingdao.. incl getting from the train station to hotel. We took a taxi from the train station to hotel which refuse to run by meter (all taxis are in cahoots coz we asked a few of them and got the same reply) and paid CNY 50 for a journey which last only 2 bus stops away from hotel. We returned to the train station by bus which was a breeze without heavy luggage. There are better hotels downtown.
Great location ”
Great location on the waterfront of the old German part of the city. A short walk from here to the colonial architectural attractions nearby. The room was large and good soundproof windows - road in front was always busy. Buffet breakfast was filling though of average quality. Some garish decor but overall a pleasant stay.
Beachfront property, nice rooms, old fashioned”
good choice for Qingdao holiday or business travelers, not a modern 5-star property with all the amenities, but comfortable, nicer location, and more economical than the alternatives. Choose the seaside view, a little more expensive but wake up in a good mood every day. Had a king size bed, very comfortable and very little noise from outside or neighboring rooms, so had good sleep all three nights. Breakfast buffet was fine, good enough with western, chinese, and other asian (especially Korean) choices.
Convenient location near beach and attractions”
Pleasant experience although it took forever to get my group checked in when the copy machine at the front desk broke down. I had to wait over an hour for my passport to be delivered back to me at 1am, although they were apologetic and courteous about everything. The hotel itself harks back to the golden years, though I'm not sure exactly when it was built it has a nice old-fashioned feel, from the lobby to the large guest rooms. Even though I was in a smoking room there was no bad smell, a rarity in an old hotel like this in China. Breakfast buffet was ok.
Old-school beach resort hotel”
Nice, old-fashioned but well-maintained hotel by the beach. Staff are not warm and fuzzy but friendly enough, if a bit slow at getting things done. Breakfast buffet was above-average for 4-star hotel in second-tier Chinese city.
My Qingdao Home”
my business requires me to visit qingdao fairly regularly in the fall of the year and i have made it my home in qingdao. the location is not in the central business district, but less than a mile from the railroad station and across the street from the public bathing beaches. in the fall after the main tourism season this area is very relaxed and the open ocean coastline provides a peaceful atmosphere that i enjoy very much. the hotel is very comfortable, provides good internet connections and is very responsive to any complaints or requests for help. it would be helpful if the hotel's business center staff spoke a little english, but we manage to communicate and front desk staff are always willing to assist. the breakfast buffet is large and varied. hot dishes could be warmer but is is delicious and enjoyable.
Lovely and good service”
I recommend this hotel to every one who wants to visit Qingdao. I felt very compatable. The staffs of this hotel are very kind and they can help me when I need help. This hotel is located in Beach side in Taipying lu. It is very easy to access the sea side and Jan qiao. Very good experience!
this hotel is near to my client office and my client suggested this to me. it's not too bad. reasonable price and its a good location for me. nothing much for me to complaint and i'm quite happy with my stay.
Great value was very pleasantly supprised”
I could not believe how nice this hotel was for the price i could not reccomend any others. We stayed two extra nights because the service the breakfast was so good all the staff were very helpful, many of the staff could speak english, Even though there was some renovations going on we heard nothing, very very good
Nice hotel, great service”
This is nice hotel that isn't modern but everyone was clean and tidy. I had some noisy neighbours which was a bit of a pain, but all in all not bad value. Wifi would be good. i would stay again. Breakfast (western) was okay, could be better.
nice, clean rooms. ”
it was a pretty inexpensive hotel, seemed pretty high class and clean. free buffet for breakfast. food was pretty good and had a lot of choice. good service, door man was pretty helpful. free candy and snacks on every floor!
Comfortable hotel in a great location”
We chose this hotel because of its location. Great views across Qingdao Bay and near the old part of town. Easy transport options with taxis and buses right outside the front door and some scenic spots within walking distance. The staff were very helpful and courteous with most having a good level of English. The room was very comfortable
Clean, Comfortable, Friendly”
Staff were very welcoming on arrival. Free fruit given to guests was a nice touch. Room facing the ocean was nicely appointed with large desk and lounge chair. The entire hotel is clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. It faces a waterfront road that gets quite busy during the day with foot and vehicle traffic. However, the hotel manages to set itself apart from the sometimes hectic scenes just outside the door. Shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing in the old German quarter are all within a very short walking distance. Overall, an excellent choice for this part of Qingdao.
over the moon at oceanview”
Hotel had everything to satisfy my needs...good service,helpful staff,spotless rooms,great location,huge bed,overlooking the sea,massive breakfast,etc it is situate in Qingdao the nicest City in China.
Old fashioned hospitality”
As soon as I walked into the hotel I received a warm welcome from the staff who treated me like family, while at the same time taking care of business in an efficient manner. The room was just as I hoped--a fantastic view of the ocean with big windows which could open partially or fully in order to take in the sea air and the sound of the waves. The furnishings and decoration of the hotel are clearly not new, they have a slightly old fashioned feel about them, but everything is clean and pretty. The dinner buffet in the lobby restaurant was delicious--lots of fresh seafood, the best I've eaten in China--and very reasonably priced. The hotel is not cheap by Chinese standards but it's worth every penny!
Good services from staff”
The hotel services are very good for a 4-star hotel. The staff guided me to the tourist spot and arranged transportation for my travel to Jinan. The location of hotel is good and can reach tourist spots within walking distance. There also domestic Shandong food for the breakfast. Room size is also satisfactory. The only negative comment is the insufficient double bed room.
Services from staff are excellent. They guided me to the tourist spots and arranged transportation for me. Hotel is located very closed to some tourist spots. Within walking distance, we can reach the church, bridge, etc. Breakfast is also good with some local Shandong food. The hotel tariff is reasonable for a 4 star hotel. Overall speaking, I will stay at this hotel again if I visit Qingdao.
