Spend there together 220 days in 2014 and 2015. Clean and new furnished rooms, big bathrooms, a big chinese variety of food for the breakfast, a fast laundry. The staff alway was very helpful and friendly. One of the best hotels I had to stay for buisness trips......only the internet connection could become improved :-)

First impression - Lobby is Grand. Inside the Lift - Satisfactory. Room 601 - Presentable...but rather old. Therefore amusky smell either from the carpet or the wall paper. Toilet - Old but marble tile so... it is clean. I would think the higher floors may be better other renovated. Because i see many guest who look like on business trip... More

My room (1601) overlooked the out door pool, which was not in service at this time of year. It was surprisingly quite even though there is a KTV right there. Either there was nothing going on those 3 nights we stayed or it is build to contain the noise. The room itself was an average hotel room. The bathroom had... More

I am currently staying here based on Trip Advisor reviews and i am not disappointed. I got a good rate for a Club Level room. Like other people have said, it has Walmart and shopping centre behind but be prepared for a shock - the whole area behind the hotel looks like a bomb site, buildings are being pulled down... More

The Golden Gulf hotel did refurbish some rooms starting from the end of last year. I stayed in such a renewed room and I have to say that it has been done with taste, but the overall workmanship was not up to the standard of that kind of hotel. In my bathroom the joint around the bathtub was already cracked... More

We were waiting for the driver we engaged and one of the bellboys came up to us and told us he has seen our driver who has gone to the washroom. The con is that the cleaning staff... More

We went to Shantou to attend friends' wedding, and they booked a room in this hotel for us. The location is quite convenient. It locates in a main street. The road behind the hotel leads to Parkson shopping mall. And there are a lot of local restaurants and a Walt-mart supermarket around it. However, the whole area does not look... More
