Qinhuangdao Sea View Hotel
Ranked #2 of 899 Hotels in Qinhuangdao
Reviewed 4 March 2010

This hotel has some clear pluses and a few drawbacks. The good parts include a nice lobby and well-appointed rooms. The breakfast is also good and some rooms have nice beach views. Drawbacks include spotty maintenance and an odd location between two industrial ports. It's still probably the best place to stay in Qinghuangdao but mostly just OK.

Enjoyed stay in Holiday Inn. Great experience. Had tandoori roti, daal makhani, butter milk, palak paneer, mango pickles, papad and gulabjam in restaurant listening to old melodious hindi songs. Saw posters of Raj Kapoor, Madhubala and Nargis. It was a wonderful stay

I stayed here with a friend for a sailing weekend at the Beijing Sailing Center (despite the name, it is actually based in Qinhuangdao)

After having lived in China for 5 years and a frequent business traveller, I'm often prepared for lower than international standards, even for big name chains. In this case, however, the Holiday Inn exceeded my expectations.

It's much nicer than the usual Holiday Inns in america. Lobby felt more like a 4 star hotel, although busy. Standard rooms were decent, and had a bit of style.

Service was solid and fairly quick. Rate included buffet breakfast, fine on the basics but nothing spectacular.

Standard double (2 bedded) room was clean and good sized. Bathroom well maintained and updated. Towels were good quality. TV satellite service included cnn, bbc, cnbc and espn. would have appreciated discovery channel. didn't use the internet, but in china, fees for internet usage is the norm.

Decent beach in front of the hotel, with nice patio dining. Very good local seafood restaurant on the beach.

Restaurants and lobby seem popular with the local businesspeople. I didn't see any big tour groups coming through, fortunately.

Fine for a business hotel and leisure hotel. Hotel management addressed questions promptly and courteously.

I would stay here again.

First of all it's a nice hotel, but we were there in November so in the city heating season was still going on and whole city uses coal so even near the sea, even in the hotel's room you can feel/smell the coal. But of course it's not hotel's falt. But second thing which I didn't like was that internet is not for free. For that amount of money which you are paying for the room internet should and MUST be for free. We've traveled a lot in China and we've stayed in different hotels and I think this was the only hotel where you should pay money and big money for internet.

Stayed: November 2008, travelled as a couple
