five weeks learning Chinese, my wife and me lived in this hotel. Very good accommodation, friendly servants, good food and restaurants, I personally loved the sweets on the desks before the lift! Eckhard Kreier

Beautiful view of the ocean, Huilan Pavilion, and the lighthouse on Qingdao Bay. The perfect location for sightseeing: 100m to the west is the pier, directly south are the churches and old European buildings, and about 1.5km to the west along the seaside walk is the aquarium and underwater world. There's also upscale shopping nearby on Zhongshan Lu (3 blocks away), and the underground market for clothes and souveniers (go to the Protestant Church, then the park and look for the sign diagonally across the street). If you're coming for the beach, you might want to look for a hotel further east. There is a small area directly across from the hotel, but it's mostly gravel and rocks, and not suitable for swimming. There's also a beach around the pier, but it's also small and I didn't see anyone swimming there. There's no swimming pool, though there is a billiard room and gym.
I stayed in a sea-view executive room, which was a large well-furnished room, with windows that open to let in a nice ocean breeze. The room had a computer and fax, and a nice bathroom with both shower stall and shower in the tub. TV has HBO and BBC, and China Daily is available for reading. The bed was typical for 4 star hotels in China, i.e., hard, and no springs. The staff speaks adequate English.
The hotel offers a big Western and Chinese breakfast buffet. Eggs cooked to order, bacon, sausage, potatoes, French toast; two kinds of dumplings, baozi, congee. steamed vegetables. Also a nice selection of fresh fruit, salad, and pastry.
One caveat: The hotel is directly across from a major bus stop; nice for travel if you want to take the bus, but starting at 6 a.m. you get some street noise. I'm a light sleeper, and it woke me up, but it wasn't enough to keep me awake, either after going back to sleep in the a.m. or at night.
I'd definitely recommend the hotel for a first-time visit to Qingdao.

I stayed at the Oceanwide Elite Hotel for the last weekend of the Annnual Beer Festival. The rooms were large and clean, and the staff was very friendly on check-in. The rooms had mainly Chinese language channels, but did have HBO english, and the bathrooms had 2 showers, which was very nice. The beds were rock hard, but that's pretty common in China. The hotel is conveniently located across from the ocean and the seaside rooms have beautiful views. The hotel is also conveniently located for exploring a lot of the main sites and the included breakfast had a nice variety of western and chinese foods.

The main problem we encountered was when we asked for a late checkout. The manager had to be called, and we had to discuss this with 4 different people. Finally, they agreed to give us late check-out, but when we came back to our room after 12, the rooms were locked with our things in there, and they had shut off the tv. We finally got back in, and fortunately, all of our things were still there, but it was a bit annoying since we had already gone through a lot of trouble to get approval. The concierge was very friendly, but was unable to give us any restaurant suggestions.
