Clean & comfortable hotel in the centre of Qingdao
Posted Mar 29, 2014
This hotel is in a very central location in Qingdao, close to shops, restaurants, transport and a 20 minute walk from the Olympic Sailing Centre. Excellent breakfast with Asian & Western cuisine including hot & cold food. Tried to use the Chinese restaurant on the 1st floor (not run by the hotel) but language barrier prevented this, could not even get a table. Room service very good I had salad & partner had spaghetti Bolognese reasonable portions and prompt delivery also reasonably priced approx. £10-£11 GBP for the 2 meals. Reception staff very helpful especially concierge who happily lent me a phone charger for the duration of my stay. Also great help when requesting a taxi as drivers do not speak English. Booked a head massage via the hotel, not what I have had before, had very tender head the next day. This is an outside service just booked through the hotel and was not the relaxing experience I was expecting as I assumed I would be in a treatment room with mood music playing, not the case, the masseuse visits your room. Overall the Holiday Inn Qingdao City Centre is a hotel I would re-book if I were to visit Qingdao in the future.
