“Good hotel but don't eat there.”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The room was spacious, quiet and clean.

The hotel is located close to the mount Tai which was the reason we were in Taian. The drive to the bullet train station takes about 25 minutes and will cost about 40 RMB. A drive to the city center (shopping and dining) is about 5 minutes.

The lunch we had when we arrived was sub-standard. Meat undercooked, noodle soup bland. The next day we had breakfast early. Very good with a large variety of food. The next day we had breakfast at about 9: all buffet dishes were open and in consequence cold, a lot of the dishes were empty and not refilled. So, if you want a good breakfast experience, go early. For dinner I recommend the restaurant on the parking lot of the hotel which I am not sure is organised by the hotel.

The pool is covered and not agreable. Staff helpfull and friendly but unable to express themselves in English.

Ramada is a very good place to stay. We traveled with two other couples to visit Mt. Taishan... stayed one night...location to Mt. Taishan is quite close. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The rain head style shower felt great after a long day of travel. We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant...Chinese selections were tasty. We wanted to treat ourselves to dessert, but the restaurant did not have western style desserts. The wait staff helped us order a cake from the coffee shop and it was light and tasty.

The breakfast buffet was great...western selections and Chinese selections. There were many choices...too many for me to sample...my typical breakfast of eggs, ham, dumplings, won tons, fruit, and juice were very good.

Hotel staff, restaurant staff, and concierge were very helpful and answered all our questions. We would stay here again.

This hotel was fabulous!

The staff were welcoming and so so so so helpful! The beds were big and soft. The rooms were very clean. The hotel is a little old but this doesn’t really matter as the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms make up for it!

This hotel is highly recommended!

To start with the positive, the hotel building and the rooms are of a 5-star standard. Unfortunately, that's where it ends - the service within the hotel is very chinese 3 star. Breakfast is poor - it appears at first to be a large selection, but it consists of soggy cabbage, dried up noodles, and cold fried eggs - and the fruit juice is like something from Soviet era Russia - just coloured sugar water. Even though it was included, we just didn't bother with it after the first day. The dinner buffet was equally disappointing. And if you'd like to swim, be prepared to buy a head cap - you can't swim without one, and they won't lend you one!
Also, if you need reliable internet access, bring a cable - the wifi was extremely sporadic, and often vanished for hours on end.
I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere in TaiAn - with the current management this hotel is not good value for money.

This hotel definitely has some miles on it, but we were really happy with our stay. Our room was very clean, and while some of the fixtures had dents, etc, the updates were nicely done and we were very comfortable. There was a flat screen TV, and the bathroom was really nice with a separate shower stall with a rain showerhead that was really nice. The staff were helpful, and pleasant, although many didn't know English very well. Our complaints would be with the food, which was not very good, and the location of the spa facilities, which were a good distance from the main hotel area. Also, the hotel location itself is really close to the Mt Tai attraction, but not very convenient for much else. You can walk to a nice, large park fairly easily, but shopping is not close.

Has the look but not execution of a nicer hotel, a fair amount of glitz in the lobby but wearing thin around the edges. Rooms a good but they were out of hot water during evening arrival. Breakfast is made out to look good but is really pretty terrible. One good point was that with some assistance from a local colleague, the concierge came out to the train station tnew company my transfer for a very reasonable fee.
