The Laozhuancun China Community Art and Culture Hotel is like a Contemporary Arts Gallery and the restaurant is like a Circular Music Hall. Avant-garde architecture, every direction you look is a work of art, rich in local culture, interesting artifacts and the lobby vibrant in the Shandong provincial colours.
Buffet breakfast or buffet dinner for in-house guest is the price of a cup of coffee in Sydney, extensive a-la-carte menu available as well. You'll have to be crazy not to eat at the restaurant. I had three breakfasts there and I love the variety of food.
I booked two nights in a King room. Before I left, I asked for a tour of the rooms which were all so different and so tasteful. I deliberately asked for an attic room for when I returned to Qingdao for one extra night. The whole ceiling in the bedroom was slanted glass which took a bit to get used to at first but I enjoyed that attic experience. The sheets and pillows were beautiful, the room new, comfortable and very artistic.
All the staff were very helpful and sensitive to my needs - especially Yang Luying from reception. It was my first trip to Qingdao and I travelled alone and I was late rushing to the airport for a long international flight back to Sydney via Singapore.
The service of Laozhuancun Hotel was first class. I was so glad I found such a beautiful and unique hotel.

Room is big, equipped with a stove top (though no cooking utensils), full-size fridge and washing machine. I love the shower, abundant water supply and heats up easily. Location is excellent, near the Wusi Square as well as supermarkets allowing you to stock up on food. Clean and comfortable bedding. This is a value-for-money hotel.

There was a mix-up with my reservation confirmation but the staff were very accommodating and friendly and worked hard to make things right. I would recommend people stay there and would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arose.

"Very clean and convenient hotel across from train station"
A little higher priced hotel than I normally use but it was Mayday Weekend and options were limited. The room size (standard) was very adequate for one person, a little cramped probably for 2. The breakfast buffet was excellent with choice of both Chinese and western style food. The description in the website was somewhat inaccurate, no balconies or patios or wireless internet but the cable worked fine. Much of this may be blamed on translation, I think. The night club, bar and coffee shop were closed. The appointments were high quality and worked. I did not use room service. I woiuld certainly consider staying there again.
