The staff are getting complacent and standards are falling. They need to improve and possibly refurbish as they are charging RMB268 for a deluxe room. It was more expensive than others we stayed in on this trip and yet was in worse condition. We are generally not fussy but cleanliness is important as we travel with 3 kids.
Plus point is it's next to the big supermarket and night stalls and pedestrian street. Also next to the long distance bus terminal. However, service on the bus is not as good as the other bus company from Shenzhen to Shantou.
We took a bus from Shenzhen (at this terminal next to the Overseas Chinese Building (Hua Qiao Da Sha). Call ahead to inform them you wish to take the bus and at what time. Phone [--]. Service was nice, served tea on board, also water, plastic bags provided for rubbish or car sickness. Attendant was proactive. RMB80. It does not stop at the terminal mentioned above though. But it was RMB7 (after bargaining) to the terminal. Much better than the horrid service for the bus from Shantou to HK. RMB190 and nothing to praise. Even lost my bag on the bus. Also had horrid experience at the HK border.
