The days and night spent here was terrific good. The whole design for that room is unique with warm lighting and feeling. The toiletry is well equipped with loccitane brand body products as well as the rain shower maintained in good conditions. Moreover, the room is so quite may due to les guests here on weekdays.
Whatsoever, the most disappointed thing the bath tub location just next to the shower with any glass in between and so let the water splashed Alan around which is risk for fall and slip.
the bed is good quality and the quilt also quite comfortable. The sofa located next to bed also well equipped.
About the breakfast provided at restaurant in a bit disappointed as less varieties to choose. Also, the lounge club floor only had one waiter to serve clients there was surprising,
Well, for a relax trip there, it still a good choice at human dong guan.
They offered me as late check out at 4pm! Lovely!

Room Tip: Suite is wonderful, don't save your money please enjoy!

Having stayed in 3 different hotels in Humen Guangdong it's a pleasure to review the Mels Weldon previously known as Sofitel.
The hotel oozes class. Take the lift to 10th floor reception and fabulous entrance to the hotel lob and bar where each night the one and only Elton Chong belts out excellent tunes of his more famous Uk namesake.
Once checked in make your way towards the elevator with top floor 62 and stunning views across the city and beyond.
The rooms are fabulous modern trendy and well worth the £60 price tag. The business lounge on floor 59 is open daily until 1930hrs where drinks and snacks are served.
Floor 10 is the fitness floor which is equally as impressive as the rest of the hotel.
Staff are really nice and bend over backwards to make the stay as comfortable as possible.
If your coming to South East China then you won't be disappointed.

I was on business trip to Dongguan, arriving late via land transport. Upon my night time arrival, place looks small-ish & dingy. But oh boy, this is one hell of a hidden grandeur. There is an entrance, yet the lobby will receive you on another level through the elevator. It's spacious, marbled, high-ceiling, plushy almost to the point of tacky, but im so immediately impressed by rich-china. At that point, the hotel just transiate from Sofitel to a nameless hotel, where I could not possibly detect any hotel name on any component in the building. (I only just discovered it's now Mels Weldon) Got a double room on the 50th floor. Ambient lights in the room are so showroom-worthy, the bathroom is gigantic with Hans Grohe fittings & marbled everything, with a splendid tub by the clear glass window, mini walk-in-wardrobe...bed is plush & probably not less than a Simmons, beautiful aerial view of the city, breakfast is western-friendly with wide array of anything u might fancy....didn't get much time to view other premises of the hotel. I can't rave enough. This must be the best hotel in Dongguan.

It’s the first time I came to Humen for leisure, I was surprised that there is such luxury hotel in this area. The room is spacious; bed and pillow are extremely soft and comfortable. Another amazing thing is can enjoy the breath-taking panoramic view on 61st Floor, while enjoy a meal. I really had enjoyed there. This hotel really is qualified for the acceptable price.

The hotel no longer belongs to the Sofitel chain and is now an independent hotel. The hotel still gave me an upgrade with my Accor Platinum Card. Rumours say that the hotel will be part of the Regal hotel chain in the future.

I have stayed in the hotel two times before when it was part of Sofitel and not much has changed. The main difference is the lack of nice brand name shampoo that hotel used to have. Now they use simple no name products, even if you book a suite.

The hotell is still one of the best in the region and bargain considering the low room rates. There is not much to do in Humen, but if you are doing business in this area the hotel is great.

A small complaint is that the hotel now has one song playing over and over again in the elevators, lobby and in the Club Millesime Lounge. After hearing the same song over and over again while working in the club lounge I almost felt brain washed... It must be a nightmare for the staff to hear the same song over and over the whole time.

Other than that, great hotel! I will stay here again for sure.

Dear honored guest, thank you for taking the time to write your experience on Dongguan Humen Oriental. We sincerely appreciate your positive comments and support and it is wonderful to learn that our service remain unchanged and meet your expectation after we ceased management from Sofitel.

Environmentally the hotel amenities will continue to be used untill complete consumption. After the transition period, they will be replaced with another brand name items. It also caught our attention that your room had been upgraded with Accor Platinum Card. Please rest assured all guests with Accor Gold/Platinum cards can still enjoy the upgrade within 2013. However, other benefits such as discount and consumption points are not applicable in our hotel any more.

Last but not least, thank you very much for bringing the feedback about the music on our hotel. A lot of great songs have been added in the playlist and you're welcome to recommend any good songs :)

We very much look forward to your next visit in near future and trust you will discover more interests in this glamourous town.

Ive stayed here twice now and found it perfectly acceptable.

The rooms a large with a separate living area, large desk and TV (also one in the bedroom)

The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean.

The Gym and pool area are very nice and have very modern equipment.

For the business traveller is pretty good.

I didnt eat there and the breakfast seems rather over priced so I simply crossed the road and had a quick McDonalds (I say simply crossed the road and for those regularly in China you will know this cannot be true LOL).

So if you are on a business trip, like to work in your room, and enjoy a workout then this is a pretty good venue.

I will probably stay here again.

Oh and I gave breakfast a terrible vote as I assume you have to give it something. Not having eaten it though so the vote is harsh.
