Bandao Commercial Center and Olympic Sailing Center Qingdao|1.56km from downtownThe bad part is its aging furnishings, not because of old age, but more because of lack of maintenance. Some that I found troubling and unsafe in my room 2509, but were easily fixable (and somehow wasn’t fixed) were: 1) One side of the desk containing tons of electricity wires completely fell off - an obvious fire and electricity hazard; 2) shower head holder was loose - several times the shower head fell and knocked head; 3) closet door could not be closed no mater how I tried, it kept creaking open wide. Doesn’t feel like IHG standard.
The absolutely great part is the house keeping. The lady who serviced my room saw I have some medicine laying around in the room, and she left a few extra bottles of water, with a very thoughtful note wishing I feel better soon. She made my day. Thank you!
Other things are as expected. Hotel building is old, but still charming. Location is not bad, in front of Yan’er Rd Station on Line 2. Lots of food and a couple of malls within 5 mins walk.
