“Short Business trip”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Excellent hotel, the room was large and clean, the bed was excellent, just what I needed a good nights sleep after a long flight. The breakfast was good, with a large range of foods for all tastes. The location of the is also good for eating out, shopping and the sea, just wish I had time to see more of the city.

Stayed here just for a day had to catch a flight the next day. The hotel is basic but not as you expect from the Crowne Plaza experience, the rooms are nice but you can feel the wear, being an old hotel. The location is really good and the service is good too.

Overall one can stay for a short business trip, didn't get much time to explore the recreational facilities.

I stayed here on holiday for twelve days in April.

This is a multi-storey hotel near to the Olympic village. Its location was excellent for me, being near the sea, the bar area on Yanerdao road, and a bus ride from the centre in one direction and the mountain Lao Shan and the coast attractions on the other.

The room was clean, had good furniture, everything worked, and was cleaned twice a day. Bedding was changed twice There was a good choice of TV stations. The view from the seventeenth floor was great. The outside windows were dirty through pollution, but halfway through the stay they were miraculously cleaned - abseilers?

The only niggle was that the free wifi worked inconsistently, and was especially poor during the last few days. The room rate wasn't cheap, but after all this is a business hotel and I did get a 15% discount for booking for a longer period. I didn't have breakfast, as I considered £14 rather expensive (even at a discounted rate).

The desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The door staff ordered me taxis immediately if I needed one and were able to give the drivers instructions to the sometimes obscure places I needed to be.

I am coming to Qingdao again next year and will almost certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the better.

I have stayed here many times over the last 9-8 years, but had not been here for four years. I always stay on the executive floor in a full-size suite. I am very happy to say nothing has changed. The room was as nice as always. The executive lounge also has not changed. The food selection was nice. Often, as the years go by, you get less and less at hotels and restaurants. I was very pleased to see no change at all. I ate breakfast each day in the second-floor restaurant and the selection was as wide as it was four years ago, and tasty. I will certainly continue staying there.

I spent some days for business. I was told the service has decreased recently. Personally I appreciated many thing: from the very big room, the bed, the bathroom, the cleanliness, to the laundry service. I cannot say the same for the breakfast and restaurant. For breakfast it was not possible ever to have a fresh orange juice, and no possibility to be understood for my sensitivity to gluten.

Dear customer,

Thank you for choose Crowne Plaza Qingdao!

We are sincerely apologize for your unpleasant experience with our breakfast.

We did notice your sensitivity to gluten. Unfortunately, we were unable to find gluten-free product in Qingdao area by that time. But my colleague found a store online which sells imported gluten-free bread in Guangzhou and we had it mailed to us as fast as we could, it still took days though.

By the day the bread received, which is the afternoon before your departure day, we tried to call your room and send room service twice to your room, but you were not in your room…

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenient in our hotel. Next time when you book our hotel, we will prepare you need. Or when you travel to other cities in China, we can send you that gluten-free product store’s address, so you can order your prefered food online.

Thanks again for choose Crowne Plaza Qingdao!

This hotel is well located in Downtown Qingdao with many restaurants located very near. The room was up to date and clean. The staff spoke good english and were very attentive. I ate in the 2nd floor Asian buffet style restaurant and really enjoyed the sushi. I recommend this hotel to expats.

Room Tip: Try to get the Club level.
