My room (1601) overlooked the out door pool, which was not in service at this time of year. It was surprisingly quite even though there is a KTV right there. Either there was nothing going on those 3 nights we stayed or it is build to contain the noise. The room itself was an average hotel room. The bathroom had... More

I am currently staying here based on Trip Advisor reviews and i am not disappointed. I got a good rate for a Club Level room. Like other people have said, it has Walmart and shopping centre behind but be prepared for a shock - the whole area behind the hotel looks like a bomb site, buildings are being pulled down... More

The Golden Gulf hotel did refurbish some rooms starting from the end of last year. I stayed in such a renewed room and I have to say that it has been done with taste, but the overall workmanship was not up to the standard of that kind of hotel. In my bathroom the joint around the bathtub was already cracked... More

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel. There is shopping around the area. The room was clean. The bellboys were friendly and helpful. We were waiting for the driver we engaged and one of the bellboys came up to us and told us he has seen our driver who has gone to the washroom. The con is that the cleaning staff... More

We went to Shantou to attend friends' wedding, and they booked a room in this hotel for us. The location is quite convenient. It locates in a main street. The road behind the hotel leads to Parkson shopping mall. And there are a lot of local restaurants and a Walt-mart supermarket around it. However, the whole area does not look... More

During my recent stay, I exchanged currency with the front desk several times. On the final day, I was given fake 100 yuan notes. I do not know how many fake I was given but the taxi driver identified two. I may have passed more unknowingly to other parties. When we notified the hotel, we were told that the front... More

I enjoyed my stay here although the first impression of the dirty carpets wasn't very good. Positives - Spacious room, reliable internet and good friendly reception staff. Negatives - dirty carpet, people touting for business in the lobby. Overall I would stay here again and probably will on future business trips.
