“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Stayed 4 nights on 15th floor in Westin Studio room.

The room was huge, effectively a junior suite with separate desk/sofa/TV area, large bedroom with massive bed and another TV, adjoining bathroom with standalone bath, big walk in shower and separate WC. Also large wardrobe area and another toilet in the hall. The bathroom alone is bigger than some rooms I have stayed in and for the money I paid (CNY1130 ++ , possibly a special rate due to conference I was attending) it was phenomenal value.

Even better, the room gave access to the Club Lounge on the top floor with breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktail hour,

Broadband (cable and wi-fi) was free. I measured the download speed as 7Mbps. There were some decent, on-demand movies on the TV menu - all free.

The hotel is located in the business district close to May 4th (Wusi) Square and the sea. Opposite is the Shangri-La. Not much to do close by outside the hotel. There is a Starbucks across the road if you need your daily fix otherwise it will be a short cab ride to bars, restaurants etc. You can get quite a long way in a cab for £2 here! The Front Desk does provide a neat map of the sights of Qingdao.

There is a small supermarket in the hotel complex where you can buy supplies if needed.

Service levels are excellent. All staff are friendly, attentive and very keen to help. English levels are very good.

The buffet lunch in the 5th floor restaurant was excellent.

Leaving late Sunday morning, the cab ride to the airport in a local taxi took 45 minutes and cost RMB125

If I should ever be in Qingdao again I would happily stay here again.
