Shangri-La home away from home

The Shangri-La Qingdao is not very new, yet it managed to preserve its splendor and the highest quality in hospitality.
It is beautifully decorated, centrally located with the newest mall and metro next door
Amazing people, wonderful service, makes you wish your trip was longer

The old wing of the hotel is a bit dated

Stayed for one night. Expected the room to be much better. The room feels a little old and the bed is less comfortable than the usual shangrila beds. Maybe we have to Book the valley wing for better rooms.

Overall in a good location beside a mall and the metro station

Amazing hotel. I have been coming here for years. Very comfortable. The staff is so helpful. Becky is great! I normally stay on the executive level. If you are staying in Qingdao...The Shangrila is the place to stay!
