I went from Macau to Qingdao for a short holiday with a friend and we stayed in Shangri-la hotel.Everything was great, from the politeness and sympathy of the staff, to the cleaness of the spacious room, the excelente breakfast and the location. Plus, we always had English speaking staff to assist us, which is really helpful in China, has we don't speak much Mandarin. Mr. Kento, Mr. Perry, Mrs. Annie and everybody else, thanks for making this a memorable stay.

Unique hotel experiences yet wonderful stay

Shangri-la Qingdao is the best among the Shangri-la hotels I have been despite a few hiccups during my stay with my friends in Easter holidays.

There were mis-communications between the global reservation email coordinator and Qingdao front desk. We had confirmed to cancel our airport transfer booking yet they did arrange a hotel driver to pick us up. As it was midnight and we didn’t want to make the situation too difficult, we ended up taking the hotel car with special offer.

Next morning there was problem in opening the safe in our room. The hotel manager, Kenta Goto san came to fix it within a few minutes. We were really grateful for his prompt assistance. He is so cheerful and professional.

On the same night, the sliding door of our bathroom was automatically locked. Thankfully there was nobody inside and there has another side sliding door. Two technicians came to fix it immediately.

We enjoyed our breakfast and dinner at the Club Lounge. There are a variety of food choices for the breakfast and spectacular night view there.

There are so many fantastic staff in the hotel. We were very impressed by their warm hospitality - Kenta Goto, Manager in Valley Wing, little Liu, bell boy we met on our first arrival, Ella, Katy, Sunny and Crystal in Club Lounge, Liu Xiuyu in swimming pool and Jiang Bo Cui, cleaning lady for our room, etc.

A BIG thank to everyone who made our stay so special and full of fond memories of beautiful Qingdao in spring.
