Like most hotel receptions, this looked promising. At check in i was told i was given a free upgrade. Bonus! My room, a suite comprised of the bedroom, and another room, a kind of lounge/office area. The layout of the room meant this additional room was like some after thought. What got me most was the smell of damp in... More

The hotel served it's purpose as a base in Shenzhen for an overnight stay. It is located about half a kilometer from the Grand Theater metro station and there are numerous buses that pass the front of the building. We used the subway to access the Luohu Commercial Centre and Dongmen Pedestrian Street. The positives were that the rooms very... More

Hotel check in is a challenge if you were not so lucky to have a good English speaker. Room was nice and quiet, however bed was extremely hard. The bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. The airconditioner worked very well. The breakfast could have been improved. There was a "Jura Espresso" machine however the espresso was horrible and it... More

It is really a lousy place. This is my fourth visit and its convenient for the metro. Thats all. Mediocre resturant. Hard bed. It looks very much like there are some content filters on the wifi. So I can only get emails via my cellphone tethered to the web. Proof of this is that I get access to my ISP... More

Location is convenience in Shenzhen city. This is the first time I stayed in Shenzhen over 3 night. Overall is good on this hotel. I tried the breakfast & dinner buffet is above average level compare to other China hotels. So I will chosse this hotel again if I need to work in Shenzhen one more time.

Stayed there in August, 2014 for 4 nights on business. Negatives: - The initial room on a non-smoking floor smelled like an ash tray. Was exchanged. - Internet is slow. Wi-Fi internet is as slow as it was 10 years ago in China, meaning it is a pain to use it, Instagram does not even load. - Breakfast buffet it... More

Good location as it is close to the airport shuttle bus stop and only 10 mins taxi to the border to Hong Kong. And it is just 5 mins walk to a shopping center nearby where I had meeting early morning. I feel that I have been "downgraded" to a very small room, maybe this is the last room left... More

I have stayed several times in this hotel and was always satisfied with the hygene and room service. However, last time was in July 2014 for 2 nights but the breakfast was not as good as it was before...
