“Comfortable and convenient hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is a great hotel located near to Loashan mountain cable car entrance, the Tsingtao Beer Museum, Beer Street and (come August) the Qingdao Beer Festival.
The hotel markets itself as a lifestyle hotel and they pull this off with aplomb. The hotel is light and airy with modern amenities, friendly English-speaking staff and toe tapping music. It is based within its own community - a neighbouring shopping mall which offers all the home comforts you could possibly need (eg. a cup of coffee at Starbucks or bathroom essentials in Watsons). Although the spa/swimming pool has not yet been completed, there is a decent, Korean-style spa one block away with numerous plunge pools, body scrubs and massages on offer.
The F&B is also surprisingly good - try the laksa soup for an authentic, South East Asian bowl of noodles.
Will be back for the beer festival!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Laoshan mountain

We stayed for 3 nights. And I have to say that it was very good! The bed was very comfortable and I have to admit I had difficulties getting up in the morning because I didn't want to get up. The breakfast was also good! All of the staff that I encountered were very helpful and would go the extra mile just to help a guest. I hope that I can come back to Qingdao and stay at this hotel again.

We arrived late evening, and the staff were very helpful and told us that we can go straight up to our room and we can give them our passports once we are settled in. They also upgraded us to a suite. The rooms are spacious. 2 1/2 bath, separate living room and the bedroom. Very clean room.

Breakfast buffet has western and Chinese selections usually found in most of branded hotels around china. Wait staff very attentive.

We request for extra pillow and towel and it arrive quickly.
It is good location as it is beside a mall.
If we find ourselves in Qingdao again, we will definitely stay here once more.

We spent one evening there and enjoyed the buffet. Everything is fresh and delicious. Staff is friendly and serve you with specific wishes on the food too. Try the salad. It comes from their organic selfgrown stock. Seldom got such fresh and crispy salad. Free flow of wine and beer comes with the buffet. Their sommelier had coosen one good carbernet sauvignon originated from the great valley in Chile. Dont miss the desert.Just to mention the creme brulee.

I will come back with family and friends.

Ive been going to Qingdao for business and pleasure for a few years now and decided to give the Himalayas Qingdao Hotel a try as a new alternative.

The hotel is very new, all the equipment is of course brand new and the rooms are very luxurious. The hotel is billing itself as a premiere lifestyle hotel rather than as a regular five star which is reflected in the level of service offered, you will not go without staying here!

Food and beverage options are limited but the hotel is situated in a great location with dozens of restaurants in the vicinity which include Western and Eastern alike as as well as bars and the fantastic Shi Lao Ren, it is also at the heart of the city's business district.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the east side.

The Himalayas is a very good hotel. It's new, well designed and has all that you need. I had some clients staying there for several nights and they were very satisfied. Going to the airport (and Chengyang business area) is very convenient thanks to the nearby toll road. And the Shilaoren Beach is also not far away for those that want to relax there a bit.

My experience with the staff was positive and they pay attention to every detail. I tried their buffet dinner and enjoyed it a lot as well. Very tasty food and better than most other hotel buffets in town.

Overall I can recommend the Himalayas Hotel and my company will use if for our clients from now on. And thanks to the modern design of the hotel, it feels much cooler than other hotels in Qingdao.
