It's hard for us to understand how this hotel has a cumulative rating of four out of five dots. Given that Kilin bills itself as a (five star?) fine institution, travelers need to know that this place is pretty run-down and not very pleasant. The carpets were dirty and had not been vacuumed in some time. The rooms smelled of... More

View is nice, food terrible (is a buffet where food was cold), the carpet is durty and has been there at least for 15 years. Trust me, is the worse hotel I have... More

Almost everything is good in this hotel. Rooms are large and nice, bathroom is very clean. Restaurant is one of the best I have ever been, with a large choice of food and an amazing view on the sea from the whole last floor. There are also many restaurants around where you can be within 2 mn walking. Also the... More

A good place to stay if you have no sense of smell. My nonsmoking room smelled of mold, sewage, and cigarettes. Wi-fi non functional. And generally run down, old, and in poor condition. And dirty. Writing this at 4 am because sleep is not possible.

Stayed there one night in October 2013, arriving close to midnight. The first room I was given on the 20th floor (small living room plus bedroom) had its bedroom carpet covered with red, blue, green and yellow interlinking rubber foam squares (!) you find in kindergardens. Those squares where visibly dirty, even in the dim room light - I can... More

An average hotel wandering between Chinese and western style. The hotel is not located in city center but in new part of the city and there are many apartments and offices nearby. There are not many restaurants and shopping centers and supermarkets nearby (or maybe I missed them since I was not looking for. I had seen this in the... More

Stayed here when working in Qingdao. Stayed a couple of times, both a month plus. The service is good, and the staff are very polite. The concept of vacuuming may have missed the Chinese, as the cleaner rarely vacc'ed, but used an opld fashion brush. The rooms were good, but the walls are very flimsy, so when the next door...

This was a comfortable and welcoming hotel. Especially thoughtful was the provision of a multi-extension socket in the room with every mains plug option including the UK. WiFi worked perfectly, but there were some minor problems. As with many hotels, the hot water took an eternity to run hot, especially very early in the morning. The shower head came away... More

This hotel was probably the best hotel in Qingdao. Keyword being was. The rooms need a major renovation. Cracking fixtures, peeling paint and cigarette burns are now the standard. Stayed here during the coldest day in 2012 and the entire building had no heat. Somebody should take this place over and bring it back to its former luster
