Location is convenient to the metro, Holiday Cinema Mall, and area attractions. Quality of accommodation is mediocre at best. Bathrooms are dark. AC shuts off between roughly 3-7AM, so prepare for heat/humidity while sleeping. Many Chinese hotels play this game. WiFi is free, but internet speed is absolutely terrible and unreliable. No cell service on bottom floor for hotspot usage.Self-service... More

Three words, noisy, moldy, dirty...I think that pretty much sums it up. Its more like a 1980s motel... I would really not recommend this hotel. There is a plethora of accommodation in Shenzhen- even if you are on a budget.

The hotel's location is very good. Close to the subway station and a large shopping mall oppositive the road. Another great advantage of staying in this hotel is you get the second entry to the WOW which is very handy. You can get out of the theme park to have a dinner outside or rest in the hotel before the... More

Location is excellent but the hotel is musty and the rooms are very small. I couldn't believe the prices so I decided to take a go. I'm only here for two nights and last night I was tempted to change hotels. I decided not to. The staff are friendly and the location is great. There are plenty of shops and... More

The location of this hotel is very good. Close to subway station and a few tourist spots. The room is clean and nice, however it gets a bit noisy at night since it's just beside the pub street. There is a shopping mall right opposite where you can have more options for food.

City Inn is very conveniently located near the various places of interest for tourists - Window of the world , Splendid China , China Folk Culture Village and Happy Valley . It's really "a value for money" hotel . However , our pleasant stay was somewhat marred by the presence of mosquitoes in the room . We were bitten all... More

My fifth time at this hotel now, I usually do some bussines in Shenzhen and have tried 5-6 other hotels in the budget class, most of the really dirty and noisy. But the location of this City inn makes it unike, the surroundings are built as a european town with small bars, there is some night life but not so... More

The reason that we chose the City Inn is because of its location next to the Window of the World. It is a China based "economical" or budget hotel chain. Except for the stained carpet, our deluxe room condition including the bathroom is actually quite good. It is spacious and bright, and the furniture although simple looks good to us.... More
