Frankly, it is slightly far from normal 5 star hotel. But I would stay the hotel again when I go to Shantou. Comparing to other hotels in the city, this hotel is above than average grade. Room service's most menu was not available at night, but the coffee was bot bad.. Even it took quite long time to be served.... More

I have stayed here many times over the past 8 years. I have always found it pretty good but with the few Chinese quirks. Overall this place is fine, rooms are clean and tidy if a little dated, Beds are the hardest I've ever come across, but i get a good nights sleep. The food is semi acceptable, fairly chinese...

Stayed for 1 night of business travel. Surely it's not an international standard 5 star, but locally categorized only. The room and towel looks clean, but suspect that I was biten by bugs in bed and woke me up. Besides, I smell something on the bedding, surely they don't change or clean every time they have a new check in,... More

Stayed there a few times in the last few years. Went there with family members to visit local relatives. Came by coach from highway so this hotel is very conveniently located plus the coach's terminal is right at the hotel. So very attractive for travelers not coming by plane. But that's about it. Breakfast is very average. But cooking quality... More

I have been staying at this hotel many times over the last 7-8 years. I think the quality is pretty good, though the rooms are starting to be a bit worn out. Breakfast is mainly Chinese, this could have been better seen from a western travellers point of view. Im so happy to see my good friend Henry in the... More

While my visit to Shantou, I stayed in this hotel for one night and found it to be very good. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is quite helpful. Buffet Breakfast is OK. One gets value for the money paid. Not an expensive hotel but good for a business trip.

It is definitely not a 5 star hotel .. I would rate is as a high 3*! A pretty lonely hotel with ok rooms, terrible breakfast. Not a place that I would look forward to going back ... it was my first trip to Shantou and my hosts suggested this hotel (a recommendation I normally don't anywhere, especially in China!)... More

Our relatives booked a room for us from new apartment building next to the old Regency Hotel. It is way cleaner & cheaper. 4 of us enjoyed the big room, big beds & nice shower. But the room has strong smoking smell which only the strong air conditioner can relieve the smell a little bit. We tried to open the... More

I have stayed in the Regency several times over the last 7 years and at first found it novel and lots of fun. It has started to get dated but they are upgrading it slowly. They have a lot of tour and large groups at the hotel due to the large banquet facilities. They need to rip out all the... More

I've stayed in worse, but none with a harder mattress. I don't mean hard by American standards, I mean hard like I have bruises from sleeping. Other than that the hotel is fine, close to Il Santo restaurant and across the street from WalMart (great for snack shopping).
