We picked this hotel for it's location, price and proximity to the Shenzhen Metro station which is located across the street from the O∙City Hotel Shenzhen hotel.
The lobby is very impressive but that's the best part of the hotel. The west wing rooms are quite small and cramped. The main rooms have nicer furniture and are a bit larger.
The TV has the usual assortment of Chinese language channels but for Western tastes - you'll probably watch a lot of CNN or something that looks like the Discovery channel.
Since it was summer, it was hard to get the room cool enough and I had to move rooms once and although it was a bit cooler - it wasn't much.
One day I came back from business and the whole floor of rooms was littered with AC units. Apparently they all got cleaned and that was supposed to help.
It was reasonably comfortable but it wasn't what I would call adequate AC.
The hotel is located across the street from an "amusement" park area which includes the OCT area. The main attractions are Splendid China Park, Windows of the World, China Folk Custom Village, Happy Valley, Huaxia Art Center,and Hexiangning Gallery.
Also within walking distance is a shopping/entertainment area which has a movie theatre, restaurants and believe it or not - a WalMart.
Just going to the WalMart is an experience. They sell live frogs, fresh fish, etc. If you've forgotten to pack something - they might have something you recognize here.
Breakfast has a wide variety of western and Chinese favorites that change daily.
This hotel is friendly and affordable and if you like the location - it's a good choice.
