Crowne Plaza Hotel Qingdao

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good hotel (maybe a little dated) in a great location near water. At checkin I was given a nice upgrade to a larger room. Staff were very helpful with good English. Restaurant had a good lunch and breakfast was good also. Good value.

I booked a room for my anniversary with my wife. We were upgraded to a room on the executive level, and our room was decorated with hearts and rose petals and balloons for our special occasion. We had a fantastic night sleep in the hotel, and even have the buffet breakfast in the morning. It was not the most diverse spread of food, but for China, we really enjoyed it!

I have stayed at many hotels in Qingdao, and since I am a light sleeper this is my go-to hotel. Without a doubt their club level rooms are very quiet, and you are not shaken awake by the sound of a slamming door, which is common in other hotels - particularly the newer ones I find. An earlier review stated that the decor is outdated - which although is true in the lobby area, I find that the rooms are still wonderful - which is really all that matters. They are large and homely. A great location too

The hotel is located by the seaside near government area. It was about CNY 120 taxi ride from the Qingdao Liuting Airport. The hotel staff were friendly. They upgraded me to the suite room. The hotel looks old and out dated. The room felt same, old and out dated, felt like back in the 60’s. The closet in the bedroom doesn’t have door, don’t know if it was on purpose or they forgot to put the door on, found some screws on the floor. But the room does have a limited sea view. Don’t recommend unless they renovate.

Good location, welcoming professional and English speaking staff. The Crowne Plaza is excellent in every detail. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and big. The bathroom is large, fully equipped and immaculate. Different choices of good restaurant. Would definitely stay again.

The Crowne Plaza has good facilities, comfortable rooms, friendly staff and a choice of restaurants. It is located downtown in the central business area. I spent a week there and had nothing to complain about.

As always, I feel at home here. Centrally located. Efficient. Friendly. The smell is soooo familiar and comforting. Old Bill's bar nearby and the 7/11 just over the road. The only downside in the area is the governments efforts to reduce pollution. They have banned the street food vendors selling mystery meat. Bad form chaps!!

The hotel is located at a central location on very busy Hong Kong Road, yet it is also close to the Olympic Park for nice seashore walking. I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and pretty happy with virtually everything.

Have stayed one time before and Club lounge was closed (renovation I think). This time the 37F was open but only 09.00 - 21.00 so you cannot get breakfast unless you get in the lift and go to the main buffet restaurant 35 floors below which needs some time waiting for lifts. The vast majority of time I don't want to do this as I only want a decent coffee to start my day (and more often than not the coffee in the buffet is stewed). On 2nd floor is the Italian restaurant Murano's and it is very nice. is right next to the large buffet restaurant (which serves breakfast) and people in there keep walking (barging) through back & forth so the restaurant feels more like an extension of the buffet. Food in Murano's is good. However I have found that the wine in Murano's is EXACTLY the same as the wine served outside in the bar area. It comes from the same cupboard. In fact......the red I had was RMB 98 in Murano's and outside maybe 5m away it is RMB 60 !!!! So, order outside and take it in with you. Rooms are very good, bed comfortable, quiet and showers good.

Location is pretty decent. Hotel feels old, needs a face lift. There is a difference between "Chinese" brand 5 star and Foreign brand 5 star, and despite the Crowne Plaza label this really had a Chinese 5 star feel. Stayed in many of both over the years and the Chinese ones lack the service and ambience but then they are usually much cheaper and you get what you pay for. In the case of Crowne we paid serious dollars for a room by normal Chinese standards. Good news is they upgraded to a suite when we arrived so cant complain about that. The rooms feel like a foreign brand hotel, but all the rest is decidedly down market. The hallways, lobby as always just that little bit warm. When its 30C + outside you want to feel cool when you arrive and cool before you leave. Breakfast was super busy, pushing past people to get to buffet. Food decidedly average. The Chinese food was okay but anything else was just not up to decent standard for 5 star. Elevators really slow. Staff in general were pretty good and friendly. Both the couple we traveled with and ourselves booked with CTrip. The hotel tried to charge us 20% more. My friend caught it before they left and fixed it. When I went to check out they told me C Trip doesn't charge the full amount so thats why it was more expensive. I checked when I got home with Ctrip and that was not correct. They called hotel and I got the 20% back. This is not a good feeling ...
