5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Spend little over a month in this hotel. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast is worth having. It's close proximity to the metro rail is excellent. Also it's walkable distance to the window of the world.

Great location, within walking distance to Happy Valley and Windows of the World. The hotel amenities including their breakfast buffet and the very large pool are excellent. Rooms were very spacious, many with large balconies. Bathrooms are clean and beds are extremely comfortable. the hotel staff are most attentive and very friendly. great hotel for families. Free Wi-Fi in the lobby was a treat, and the Air Conditioning worked fabulously in the hot summer heat of mainland China.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony. It was the size of a very large bathroom.

I brought my entire China team to the Venice Hotel in August for three nights. As a director, I was upgraded to a suite, which gave me fantastic views over 'Windows of the World'. It also gave me access to a private breakfast and free happy hour (which seemed to be ignored by the other guests).
The breakfast had a wide selection, although attracting the wait staff at times involved generous exertion at times. The dinner at Blue was excellent, although miscommunication between their sales department and restaurant floor staff meant resulted in a couple of minor hiccups.
Slight problems aside, this is an ideal hotel for team building, given it's access to Shenzhen's attractions, large swimming pool and lively bar.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite with a view of the Window's of the World if you can.

I would recommend this hotel for its fun atmosphere. It's next to two popular resorts in Shenzhen (Happy Valley and Windows of the World). The pool is great fun. Staff are so friendly and the club lounge staff deserve a special mention for being well trained, attentive and so pleasant. The check in staff is another matter all together. Perhaps it was 'training week' but they were not as well trained. Housekeeping was good. Large clean rooms, with tea and coffee making facilities. Good size bathrooms. Perfect for a weekend getaway with the family. Restaurants were good too. Marco's Chinese has excellent roast meats, and the Orange Japanese Restaurant on level 2 has a selection of teppanyaki, hot pot, sushi. Unfortunately they allow smoking in this restaurant..why??? They really should lock smokers who light up in a restaurant.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights on a tour of China. We had a lovely spacious room, good size bed, comfy chair and free Wi-Fi in the room, which was a bonus compared to other hotels we stayed in. Being close to Hong Kong we could still use Facebook, which was nice!
Breakfast was very good with an excellent selection of Western and Eastern foods. Tea / Coffee making facilities were provided in the bedroom.

Hotel is in a nice location, just a few minutes walk from Happy Valley amusement park and Window of the World, with a large shopping mall close by, including several dining options.
Food in the restaurant was decent...the seafood pizza was huge and very tasty although featured a LOT of garlic. We ate there twice, the first time the service was very good however the second time was a bit of a disaster with the wrong meals and dessert being brought to us, my pizza was only luke-warm, and nobody came to check all was ok or to give us the bill...so it took 2 hours to have a pizza and a drink.

The staff were all dressed as gondoliers and the theming was nicely done...not totally over the top, but you could easily be in the Venetian in Las Vegas!

Would definitely recommend it.

Rooms are basic. Customer service is poor. Communication is a big issue. It is supposed to have non-smoking floors but the patrons still smoke. The Chinese come back drunk and rowdy and disturb others.

I was a bit worried when I saw that this place wasn't a Crowne Plaza any more and the reservation process had me wondering if I was giving my details to the hotel or an agency (it was the hotel in the end but I gave them feedback on that which they said they are going to take into account). When I got there though it looked pretty much the same as I remembered - a fun Venetian themed place that lacks the crass vulgarity of the casino hotels in Macau and elsewhere that pursue the same theme. This time I only stayed for a night before going to a business meeting in OCT but the place looks great for families (nice pool) and business people (great bar) and is very close to Happy Valley theme park and only ten minutes from the chillout area of Portofino. Recommended.

Room Tip: Insist on non smoking until they upgrade you to one
