Close to 2 MTR stations each 5 mins walk from hotel. Location difficult to find by cab driver, make sure you print a colour google map with Chinese Street names for the driver. The hotel actually locate behind a commercial building. look for the Name Signage along the main street.

Clean rooms good reception service.

I got in after midnight and there is only one staff at the counter but she is very efficient. You can tell the place is newly renovated and the room is spacious and clean. The only thing I have to complain is the design of the bath tub. They don't have any curtain installed and there is only a small glass partition on one side of the tub. It's too narrow so after shower the whole floor is wet. Luckily I only need to stay for one night. The other thing they should do is adding a lamp at the desk, otherwise the room light is too dim to read/work at the desk. When I checked out in the morning there are 5 staff working at the counter but it seems very chaotic due to the number of people checking in and out at the same time. They need to re-design the work area so it's easier for guests to quete up (something difficult to do in China). The place is not far from Shenzhen metro and close to many banks. Overall I enjoyed the stay and consider the place not cheap but reasonable.

I have stayed this hotel one night as I had a conference in Shenzhen until at night and I had to go back to Japan next day.

Before I go to the conference I have visited this hotel at around 8:30 AM and asked them to keep my big luggage.
But they let me check in at the time and I could leave my luggage in my room.

Room was very clean and I could sleep well.

The location is close enough to walk to subway station.
But it is necessary to go through under path to cross a big inter section.
With a big luggage it is a little tough, then I recommend to take a taxi.

Since I departed this hotel at 6:00 AM, I could not enjoy breakfast but it will be good as I could see so many foreigners coming out from the restaurant at 8:30 in the morning.

Hotel was totally renovated for the 2011 Universiade and is as good as new with a comfortable bed. The subway station is 5 minute walk away. They offer a good selection for breakfast and to my taste. The only thing is the swimming pool. It says on the hotel directory that the pool closes at 2200, but when I went down at 2100, it was already all dark and locked up.

When check-in to room, I was asked to give a cash deposite of Y500. However, to the best of my understanding that members of A-plus are trust worthiness and so their reputation are strong enough to have the deposite waived.

I just didn't mind to pay the Y500, but it seemed my image was damaged.
