“Not quite a hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

It's misleading to call it a hotel as it doesn't even have a bar or cafe, let alone other facilities. There are over 30 channels on TV, but none in English; Wifi connection Is not bad, but no access to Yahoo and many other news and entertainment sites. The tiny coffee machine in the breakfast area broke down every day over my few days' stay, and nowhere else can you get coffee on the campus. In some toilets there are shower curtains, but the drainage is so designed that shower water is bound to flood the entire toilet floor. Air conditioning was hard to adjust in my room so I ended up waking up in sweat a few times most nights. The only good thing I can say is that the rooms were quite clean and tidy, and it's only about 20 minutes' walk to the main road outside the campus, where you can get some local food and supplies, and even McDonald's further down the road.

I stayed at the hotel for one night. The double room is huge and quite attractive. Excellent bed, pillows, furniture. Quiet. TV had HBO with English-language programs but no good English-language news. Internet was free but verrrrry slow. The shower was cold water only. I couldn't get hot water to come out either in the evening or in the morning. Reception staff are polite but their command of English is negligible.

Pros: 1) Located within the Shandong University campus. You can walk to the south and north gates of the university for convenience stores, cafes, and restaurants. 2) The breakfast buffet has a lot of variety. 3) They have a dinner buffet for a price, which is convenient if you don't want to walk outside. 4) There is a cafe in the lobby where you can purchase coffee, pop, etc. But it is overpriced. 5) The tv had HBO. 6) The hotel offers complimentary fruit and tea daily.

Cons: 1) The walls in my room were stained and dirty, as well as the bedding. 2) For what it is, it is definitely overpriced. You can find cheaper hotels by the university if you just want a room to sleep in. The room was just a little larger than another cheaper place I've stayed at, but a lot more expensive. 3) The internet browsers wouldn't work in my room, although applications like skype did. The hotel sent housekeeping to fix it, which they obviously could not.
