The Mingdu Gloria Plaza Hotel is located 20-25 minutes from the airport. There isn't much around it except for office buildings, but I did find a convenience store a block from the hotel (near the stoplight). The rooms are spacious and clean, but the mattresses are hard (my two colleagues thought so, too). The breakfast was good, with plenty of options. There is also a nice laundry service, where you can leave your laundry in a bag on the bed before 12 noon and have it delivered back before 6 p.m. My only complaint was that the women working the front desk spoke absolutely no English! When I asked to exchange money (and I even held up a $100 bill), they had no idea what I was requesting. They had to call an English-speaking manager to come to the desk. (He gave me a rate of 6 CNY to the dollar instead of the prevailing rate of 6.77, but I was happy to accept that as there are no ATMs in the hotel.) Similarly, when checking out, it was difficult to explain to the non-English-speaking desk people that I needed a receipt. My room cost 378 CNY per night, approximately $56, which included breakfast.…
Hotel seems to be ok, but not for western people. No gym, no lobbybar, only very few hotel personal can speak some English. Not smoking room smells smoking room. Looks like airport is very near, you can hear every aeroplanes.
I have tried very hard to rate this hotel higher, but being a westerner I can't. The hotel is beautifully presented, however communication with staff is very limited, although the majority do try very hard. The WIFI in the hotel is basically not existent, the best areas for coverage was in reception or a forward table in their restaurant.
Ni hao!We went there with colleagues to stay during our short stay in Qingdao for a conference.The view from mu room is nice and the weather was cool.The food is just a little bit bland for my taste buds.Over all,it is quite a luxury place to stay in.
Гостиница недалеко от спортивного центра Хушань, с большими номерами, все еще довольно новое, мягкие ковры повсюду в коридорах и номерах, но чистые и впечатление не портят. Кровать удобная, правда подушки несколько пружинные, но со временем в Китае к этому привыкаешь. В номере чайник, чай-кофе. Халаты, тапочки и туалетные принадлежности есть. Хороший и разнообразный завтрак.
