Reviewed 13 April 2014

The hotel is conveniently located in the High Tech Park near the beach, but farther from downtown and the main activity and traffic of the city. This location is great for business people with interests in the area but farther from the main tourist areas; the hotel is also close to the Qingyin expressway which goes to the airport and...

Reviewed 25 July 2013

booked this hotel when nothing else was available near the beach. My first impression of the facilities was poor - it is an older hotel that really needs updating. However, the staff's superior training is highly evident- I found the service to be excellent. The buffet restaurant is also very good - I tried both the breakfast and the dinner,...

I stayed here for two nights. The hotel has a good location. The food in hotel was very good, especially the lunch time buffet. My room was on the 7th floor and was large and well kept. The only question I would have is the shower arrangement, this was over a freestanding bath with no curtain so water everywhere.

Hotel facilities are nice and very modern. I stayed in a single room which is pretty small. The breakfast buffet had Chinese, Korean and Western cuisine and overall satisfying. The hotel is close to the beach but about 30min far from the city centre of Qingdao.

It is true that the hotel is not close to city center but it is the nearest international hotel to Mount Lao Shan. This is a legendary mountain to well known ancient chinese poets. Since taxi fares are pretty cheap in Qingdao you can reach anywhere. The hotel buffet was above average, beer was available in an unlimited basis. The...

Reviewed 9 April 2006

Hotel is brand new,less than a year old and seems to be geared towards Koreans as most of the signages are in Chinese and Korean. (Given its proximity to Korea, Qingdao has a huge Korean community.) Rooms are of good size and the bed were firm and sheets were clean. Room comes with free internet which is a big help....

“I stayed at the back of the hotel. The views were OK. The front of the hotel looks over the sea, however, so the views would be much better. If I went again, I'd pay a bit more for the view.”
