Ramada Plaza Taian4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This was billed as a 5 star hotel. It would barely make it as a 3 star by Western standards today. It probably was once a five star when built. The hotel hardly has any guests, the service is terrible. The carpeting and beds have deteriorated. Also, the design makes going to and from the rooms at difficult with long walks and multiple elevators. The breakfast was ok at best. If you are staying in the area, it is best that perhaps you go to Qufu for Confucius that you stay at the Qufu Shangri-la there which is a beautiful hotel. If you need a hotel in this region another travel agent had recommended the Wanda Plaza Hotel. On a positive note, you can have a nice walk in their gardens on the side. It is a very nice respite from the hotel itself.
Everyone has a smile and a warm hello. The rooms are excellent with a great location. I have traveled in many countries and the Shandong people are some of the friendliest in the world. If you only speak English and do not get what you want here, it is because they did not understand your request, they always want to help and please you. Just take the time to make sure they understand and you will have a wonderful stay here.
Best hotel in this area/city. Not really 5* but good enough. surprisingly had draft beer in bar outside. Internet could be better. Main attraction is Mt TAI. Silly to call 1x rail station "Ta ian" & other "tai shan" although both are "TAI" city stations &within 3kms of each other but this is China.
Stayed here for two nights in order to see Mt. Tai. Hotel is fine--I would say a 4-star, not five. Rooms are quite nice--but wifi is iffy and as an English speaker I would have appreciated more English TV--but BBC and Natl Geo was fine. The fitness center/pool are really not part of the hotel and you have to walk down the hill to get to them, so if that is your motivation I would reconsider. Food was adequate but only adequate not great. Setting is very interesting and pretty. Building is quite a labyrinth as built on side of hill. All in all a decent, clean, affordable nice hotel but not luxury. It is very close to the Mt. Tai bus station!!
Hotel is nicely situated beneath the mountain and sitting next to the municipal building. There is a piece of the tai mountain rock in front of the hotel. The Rock is symbolized the Fong Sui of the hotel. The municipal building is pretty elaborately designed with computer controlled water fountains. I think Ramada in China is one or two levels above the typical Ramada in North America. Anyway as you can see from the picture, the room is roomy with in room desk, chairs, bar and upscale bathroom facilities. The dinner buffet inside the hotel is pretty good. A walk around the area with the view of the tai mountain is very refreshing. Enjoy!!
Rather a nice position under the mountains spoiled by a mist rather. A quick stopover at the edge of town. It seems that China is party mad, the ballroom was busy with a business party for the workers having a good time, good natured people happy in their own skins! Hotel was fine, breakfast better than most, rooms usual big size and clean, wifi a little dodgy but adequate.
inadequate... feels more like a 3 star experience... a little shabby and tired... average food and service... not enough English speakers on the staff, insular and no real understanding of the needs of an international traveler... if you want a genuine 5 star hotel, look at the newly opened Wanda Realm which is much, much better...
What you have to understand is that Ti'an is a city that gets a lot of tourists, but 99% of them are Chinese. So there just isn't the call for English or for amenities on a western standard. But, they DO try. As one example, when our friends had to bail at the last minute, the staff worked hard and successfully, (with one phone call assist from us), to help us cancel what was originally a no refunds reservation. The room is large and well appointed, including a docking station with an IPhone 6 mount, but the air conditioning is more notional than real. All the staff are pleasant and genuinely eager to be helpful but not one is genuinely fluent in English. So be patient. They do want to help. Be willing to point on the menu, (which does have English). Double check understanding about things like whether they have really understood where to ask the cab to take you. Tips: take hotel cards with you when you go out so you can show them to a cabbie when you want him to take you back.
It's reasonable prices to stay long n short. Located very convinient so almost good to stay for travellers. Room conditions - cleaned but not crystal cleaned. Very spacious like other Chinese's hotels. Breakfast - little bit a poor ( just continental style only ) i got disappointed I had a lunch once at the chinese restaurant at the hotel but also got disappointed tasty. (It's much better street foods which is in front of hotel ) I could've enjoyed almost but staffs are barely speaked english. Even restaurant staffs couldn't get understand what the ice means. Perrier with ice or sprite with ice......... She just served opened the bottle. They don't have english menu. But u can speak chinese go there n enjoy one because the prices are reasonable n taste is also reasonable. The other night we enjoyed the day trip n big party so we needed more foods n drinks. I tried to order to room service for something but no one can speak english. Even one word got understood (Honestly i can't speak english well n i'm not working for foreigners which i don't need to speak fluently. But i think they must be pro for served foreigners.) Air conditioning worked poorly. Setted 10'c till last day but not cooled ( after shower we got a sweat again every time) I cant compare other hotels in Taian, I only stayed this one. It is only my experience.(it's first time to visit in Taian)
Probably one of the biggest let down is what people write about this hotel. The only good thing is a location. Poorly run, no service and finding someone willing to help you is impossible now is nothing but a conversation hole.
