Comfy western style hôtel
Stayed here twice now! Great hotel in super location. Comfy beds. Stay on the club floor for free breakfast and happy hour. Ask for a view of the sea!

Pleasant stay, will recommend.
The Hotel is really outstanding value for money, Location is good, near shopping centres and close to the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Centre where you can go for a nice stroll. Service is great, Staff understood a little English which is always useful in a country where majority speak mandarin.

This was a 4 star now run down to be a fake 4 star hotel (rated 4 stars only because it's got a swimming pool). They must have a ration in number of facial tissues put in a plastic tissue box as only about 10 sheets are provided every day. We left our room one morning around 11am and the housekeeper must have skipped cleaning our room as when we got back to the room at night, they only shaped our duvet and the extra pillows by the bed side and dirty cups were still lying in the room as they were when we left in the morning. When we called the housekeeper, she just said "we don't usually give you a clean cup during your stay, you'll have to clean it yourself"!! Although the breakfast is meant to be served until 10am but they won't refill any food shortly after 9am whether in the ground floor coffee shop or the 23/F executive floor. Most breakfast food (especially western style) served is hard, dry and cold!!! Wifi is very unstable and the air-cond temperature is non adjustable (DON'T STAY IN THE HOT SUMMER). The only good point about this hotel is its room size (club floor), location, close to Wuxi Square subway station (about 10 mins walk) and No. 1 airport shuttle bus stop is right in front. The Millennium group should take this Copthorne hotel off their management as it's a disgrace for their group image!
