During my stay in Qingdao for 10 days, I had stayed in 3 hotels. Comparatively, this hotel is just an apartment. Pictures are very deceiving. The quality of stay is below average. Place is not well maintained. Bed and pillow are not comfortable. It is very dirty and dusty especially the carpets and the fabric furnitures. Towels are not pure white and look dirty. For the price paid, this is not value for money at all. I would definitely NOT come back.

The bath room is not clean enough. And the carpet is pretty dirty, I even cannot walk on it without the sandal.
And the breakfast is awful too.

Nice hotel, along the lines of the holiday inn standard. We didn't take food and didn't see a bar, that said we had travelled 20 hours from UK.
Staff polite and helpful, english is spoken but simple normal tasks only.
Beware of TAXI's plying trade on the Hotel parking lot. We were "picked up" by a women taxi driver, it was a half red taxi (different company's have a different colour), and the witch we reckon had left her meter running from the airport. It cost 90 yuan for 5 miles tops, she badly ripped us. We found it best to hail caqbs from the street. It gives them less time to think. Make sure, the meter is at the starting rate, e.g.9 yuan, then listen for the ticket machine, any different then stop. Hotels slightly to blame, only in that the concierge should have eyeballed this persuasive lady. It's a simple beware, most taxi's are honest, but beware the lady in the half red at Hotels in the morning (after the airport to hotel drop).
Good hotel though, aircon worked well, nice view too.
20 mins walk to the shops at Jusco (like Tesco/Karstadt/) etc.

Your feedback on our staff has been shared, we are always happy to assist our guests. Ariva Qingdao is an exquisite and cosy hotel with many nearby amenities, we are glad you loved our Hotel.

Taxis of different companies parked at our premises provide convenience to our guests but do take note of the meter whenever you board taxis anywhere.
