I stayed at this hotel for four nights. Actually this is in a good location but a little noisy from the street. Good service from the front door to your room. Room a bit old but okay.. All day food available at the Venice.

The only facility we missed is a gynasium with basic equipment to work off the stress and fat. Food and beverages (free... More

It was booked by the travel agent, and found this hotel is pleasant to stay. Service is good, and 4 meals a day are all free. Food is very average, variety, taste ok, but quality is just so so. The hotel is clean in general. You can't expect much from a little provice city hotel in Shantou of China, but... More

Happy Hotel gives great added values without being asked. If you speak mandarin or local dialect you will definitely enjoy a happy stay. I read the reviews in Tripsadvers and tried it myself with my family on 10 to 11 May 2012 and I must agreed with the very helpful reviews stated by the quests of Happy Hotel.

Travelling with family and stayed at Happy Hotel ( 金乐酒店,汕头) from 19-21 Apr 2012 and we were all satisfied with the hotel overall. Apart from some hiccup when we try to check in earlier (i.e long waiting time at the reception), the staff were generally helpful.

I had a deluxe room in the new block. But this is already outdated and the room quality was below average. The... More
