    Recommednation - Yes or No”

    1) Regret to say that the hotel is very very old. Current going thru some sort of renovation. No indication of renovation mention, highlighted on my booking confirmation. 2) Room attendant knocking on the door in the morning requesting to service your room when you have the "DND" signage hanging on the door. When you refuse entry, the room attendant will remind you a couple of times to remove the DND sign when you leave the room. 3) Water leakage in the bathroom resulted in a pool of water on the first day, 2nd day the leakage got worst & water coming down from the ceiling. Report the problem on the arrival day but no one attended to my concern. I had a fall in the bathroom due to the slippery condition in the bathroom. 4) You can still see the name of the previous hotel in the room under "Copthorne Hotel". Confusion! If you are traveling to Qingdao, hope you have a nice stay!

    Perfect location Hotel with good customer services”

    Pros: bus and underground at the door. Airport bus arrives directly at the other side of the road. Supermarket right across the road. Cons; breakfast is only so so. Not worth the money. The indoor pool was closed for maintenance during our stay. There is no executive lounge in the hotel although we were at the club floor. Anyway, they compensate it with an afternoon tea set which includes a cup of coffee/ tea and some cookies and small cakes.

    Great location”

    Very good hotel for money's worth but the sauna was still not working since my last visit. the female staff with glasses was very friendly and good at English. The other one(mexxx) was very mechanic and cold in manners. A brand new 711 nearby and very convenient. Pricy food but normal for a four star hotel. mosquitos in the lobby may be a problem if wearing shorts.

    Strategically located at the heart of Qingdao Commercial Business District, with quick access to various tourism spots including historical landmarks and natural & man-made parks.The hotel staff are friendly and can communicate well in English. The hotel is generally clean from public areas to rooms. Cost of stay is very much affordable if via AGODA.

    Good location, Clean room, Kind staffs

    It was fairly reasonable and I was satisfied with the hotel. but breakfast was kind of terrible even though I understand a busy time. (not only food but also environment.) there was no food, no plates, no cutleries and food areas was so dirty. and non-smokers have to ask for non-smoking room because there are some smoking floors. Truth be told, The hotel is not good enough to be 4stars hotel. By the way, staffs were so kind, room condition was always good and the location couldn't be better! if I visit Qingdao again, I would love to stay in this hotel :)

    A good hotel with standard facilities”

    Free wifi in the room, good central location, clean bedroom and bathroom with soft towels

    On our last day, we had lunch at the hotel restaurant, Central Grill. We opted for ala carte items instead of the buffet as we were not big eaters and the service was very slow. Also, I hurt my knee and wanted an ice pack but they just provided a bucket of ice with no scoop, no plastic bags and no towels. Perhaps the staff had some difficulty understanding my Mandarin, but they could not understand English. In addition, an airport shuttle service would be good.

    very bad restaurant. we ordered a fresh fish from the aquarium but was served with a dead fish that has been frozen for long time. we complained to the manager but they keep insisting it is fresh from the aquarium. the fish stink and the bone is dark in colour. this is really a cheating restaurant "hei dian". it really spoilt qingdao's reputation for good seafood.

    this hotel is old but very popular so many taxi are aware of it.

    there is a Carefourr opposite the hotel so you need to take the underpass infront of the hotel and that is safer because of the traffic. There are many food eateries around the vicinity and if you take a 5-10 mins walk upstream you will come across a row of seafood restaurants. Plenty of good and fresh seafood in Qingdao. Very reasonably price and good service.
