I have stayed in the Regency several times over the last 7 years and at first found it novel and lots of fun. It has started to get dated but they are upgrading it slowly. They have a lot of tour and large groups at the hotel due to the large banquet facilities. They need to rip out all the... More

I've stayed in worse, but none with a harder mattress. I don't mean hard by American standards, I mean hard like I have bruises from sleeping. Other than that the hotel is fine, close to Il Santo restaurant and across the street from WalMart (great for snack shopping).

Apparently popular with business travelers and locals alike (multiple weddings were going on during my visit), property felt somewhat dated. Carpets, elevators and rooms had faint aroma of smoke. Room was well appointed, however I was unable to control the temperature and was quite cold. The mattress is unquestionably the hardest I have ever slept on, literally bruising my sides!!... More

I have been staying at this hotel on business for the better part of 10 years. It is starting to show its age, but they have been remodeling it and as of late, I have gotten newly decorated rooms lately on the upper floors that are non-smoking and very nice and with new carpets etc... Food is typical local and... More

I used to stay in Regency in 2005-2007...Since then it looks like the rooms haven't been rennovated, the furniture looks older, the carpets as well...I could rate it as 4,5-star hotel back then...Now it can only pass as 3-3,5-star...Service is OK, but we do I have to pay for Internet? There's no wi-fi in the room, in the lobby only...

Check-in was slow, and staff wasn't terrible bi-lingual (nor am I so I don't hold it against them, they just didn't seem like they wanted to help). I thought they had put a box-spring on top of another box spring but apparently that's what passed as a mattress. This was only non-smoking in the sense that they added a non... More

By the standards of Chinese tier two cities, this place is good, perhaps very good in some areas. However, the all-pervasive filth from smokers is everywhere in the lobby and other common areas. Our party of 18 insisted on non-smoking rooms. At first, it was a case of "Bu Keyi", but eventually the check-in staff gave us superior non-smoking rooms... More

I have stayed here many times over the last 5 years and as far as Chinese hotels go it is pretty good. Its not 5 star more like 4. There are not many options at all in Shantou, and for me the Meritus is on the other side of town from where my meetings are. The rooms are getting a... More

This hotel is an absolute disappointment, definitely no 5 star level. Old, smelly rooms with dirty carpets, almost no English speaking staff, loud karaoke singing well after midnight, several phone calls by prostitutes.
