Most of the time when visiting Shenzhen, I would stay in either DaysInn or Kai Li in LuoHuo district and would travel in the morning to HuaQiang Bei to look around at the latest electronics gadgets and accessories.
As this trip to Shenzhen, I had only a day decide to try out staying at Huaqiang Bei Lu area so that I can shop and buy any new IT stuff and my booking was at this Huaqiang Plaza Hotel.
Firstly the hotel is in a complex and the lobby is on the 28th Floor.
The pain is in the wait for the lift as the lift takes you from the 1st Floor to all levels of the hotel.
Mind you the hotel is not a small hotel but a rather big one. So it takes a long time to get to your room or the lobby during peak hours such as LUNCH and DINNER. A popular Chinese Restaurant is on the 3rd floor.
Once checked - In you can go to the other side to take the hotel lifts which serves from 28th to all the room floors.
Lobby is impressive and rooms are BIG and Luxury comparable to any 5 star hotel.
Location superb for those who wanna shop but other than electronics and IT gadgets, nothing else is available.
Food wise - cant get much around beside Mcdonalds and other fast food.
Starbucks is conveniently located at the ground level.
Staff service is below average - asked a staff to deposit my luggage at the 1st Floor while I run to the shops for a quick buy, told me the ground floor is not a deposit, need to drop back to the lobby!!! I was like WTF? Take another 10 minutes for the lift?
Anyway, overall won't stay here again unless totally need the Shopping time in Huaqiang Bei and might try others around the area that has got better economical rates.
