Stopped by this hotel recently as we were struggling to find a good restaurantin the area. Good selection of dishes and the ones we really liked were the salt shrimp in batter with pepper, the sliced pigs liver with bamboo and the lamb. Great value, great taste.

This is one of the best hotel in Jinan. Usaually I will choose this good hotel for meeting trip. It is located in a nice area with good mountain view. The faculties are sound. The staff are well trained. The rooms are big and clean. You should like it!

This must be one of the most sumptuous hotels we have stayed in, in China. As we are here on a business trip and are not paying for it I don't know the rates but not cheap I am sure. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast selection is amazing. It is a bit of a distance from the centre of town so reasonably quiet for a large Chinese city. The main problem here or any large city in China is the smog!

With over 500 rooms, a very impressive ( China State owned ) Luxury hotel.

All rooms are very high tech, which is sometimes confusing.

Flushing the toilet can become a technical challenging exercise, due to all the tech gear attached.

Restaurant servicesare not what isexpected at this price range.

Front officeservicesare efficicient.

Clean,modern large rooms......for business travellers, not honeymooners....

Room Tip: Depending on the price levels.All roomsare very modern.

I stayed at this hotel over the weekend on a 2 two business trip around China. The hotel was clean and neat. The lobby was incredible. The breakfast was good. The room was large and very nice. The location was very good right next to the 1000 Budda park. The only negitive was that the internet access was very slow and did not work at all some times.

5-star Hotel in the central part of Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province, about 1.5 km from the downtown area. Many relics related to Confucius as Jinan is not far from his birthplace.

Rooms & lobby are big, meals are excellent, I was there during the Muslim fasting month and the cook is a Muslim specially to prepare for Muslim Halal food.

Nice view as it is next to the Botanical gardens. Staff very helpful even though language could be a problem but they get A for effort. Note that on average they are quite tall in this area.

I normally stay at the Soffitell but its still being refurbished and having eaten at the Shandong before, decided to give it a go. The lobby & swimming pool are much better than the Soffitel and it has a wider choice of restaurants, although the food was only average this time. The location is better, being opposite the Botanical Gardens and easy walking distance from the Thousand Budda Mountain Park. The only real downside is that its dead after 9pm, you'd find more nightlife in Mao's Mausoleum and there are no bars in walking distance. I even started to miss the Philipino bands in the Sofitel - entertaining when they have a good one, but just loud and irritating at other times! I had no trouble booking everything to my room, but worth doing so when you order otherwise they're very slow!

Top tips - do book a room on the executive floors - 13 floor upwards as you get a neat glass walled wet room with bath & shower, so much better than the usual wet shower curtain in the bath.

Don't bother with the executive breakfast - its better on the ground floor - although still not as good as the Soffitel breakfast

Do ask for a room at the front with a park view

Do take a good book to compensate for the "nightlife"

Don't pay more than 980RMB weekdays / 860RMB weekends!
