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!
