500 rmb walk-in rate as I was in a hurry and couldn't book online.

No complaints ..........location is great for Luo Hu border with HK (about 10 minute walk)

Room Tip: try to get an end room, I was 1101 ........ so I guess all the rooms ending in a 01 are the end room...

This is a 4 star hotel that typically has good rates. It is probably overrated by half a star (typical of Chinese hotels). I had both an executive room and a standard room. The executive level room had a nice comfortable bed (4 pillows), was large and well decorated with a bigger flat screen TV with CNN, Bloomberg etc in English.. Better than average amenities in a large, granite bathroom. The internet is wired. A pretty-good buffet breakfast was included at this level. The hallways are showing their wear, but overall, this hotel room is a good one. The standard room (half price of the executive) was about the same, but had an older CRT, less comfortable bed, and a slightly lower class of amenities. The bathroom had a tub, but was not as nice as the executive level room
I asked for a non-smoking room (hard to find in Chinese owned hotels)...after I entered the room, there was a knock on the door, and in came housekeeping who scooped up the four ash trays and locked them in a drawer under the bar....thereby making it a non smoking room...as long as I did not smoke, I guess.
Lobby is nice, the front desk is friendly, but has a little trouble with English.
You will choose this hotel for a lower rate in a good location. This is within walking distance of the LouWu border area, behind the ShangriLa hotel. From Hong Kong airport, take the A43 bus (30HKD) to the first stop (40 minutes) and then the MTR (21HKD) one stop to the border. From the Shenzhen airport (or anywhere in Shenzhen) take the green line to the end and backtrack in a 5 minute walk to the hotel.
This is a few dollars more than some of the other "4 stars", but the transit conveninece may be worth it.

This hotel must have seen better days. The room although non smoking had an odd musty smell about it, the decor is tired and worn, the soft furnishings not very soft and the bed way too hard to get a relaxing nights sleep.

Breakfast was a sorry affair although if you like cold, hard fried eggs then this is the place for you and the choice of restaurants in the evening very limited. No range of cuisines, just chinese. The Seasons "western" restaurant and coffee bar although advertised in their leaflet (the only information in the room I could find that listed hotel services) and listed in the lift as on the ground floor does not actually exist and when I asked the hotel staff where I could find it they didn't know what I was talking about.

I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone, if you need to come to Shenzhen
- pay the extra £40 a night and book the Shangri la down the road. If it wasn't prepaid I'd have switched hotel by now.

Room Tip: book somewhere else

Very conveniently located to the shopping area. Couple of minutes walk away from the hotel. Very nice if you want to shop, drop bags at the hotel and go back. The hotel is located close to many bars, massage parlors, restaurants, shops and the Luohu Commercial Centre.

We stayed here for 4 nights and there was a supermarket and massage parlor close by. We would go get a foot refloxology for damn cheap prices after a long shopping day. The train station was close by and so was a bakery which was YUM!

The hotel is clean and decent for the price but language can sometimes be a difficult when communicating with the staff. The furnishings are not luxurious but are adequate.

The hotel restaurant food was bad and there are many better options available outside the hotel. The breakfast did not really have any options that you would eat at breakfast, but had options from a typical American brunch.

Overall, the hotel had an excellent environment with quick and clean service and rooms. I would not rate it as 4 star as what they call themselves but would term them as superior 3 star hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel in the past and have no complaints about the hotel per se; however, when I needed a taxi to take me to the airport on March 17, 2011, a bell hop told me he would arrange a taxi for me and the fare to the Shenzhen airport would be 150 yuan. He arranged a "black taxi" to take me. Once at the airport the driver refused to unlock the car doors or release my luggage until I had paid him 500 yuan.

Hotel guests beware of using the hotel employees to arrange anything for you, unless of course you are super rich.

The hotel is good with nice rooms & breakfast. The utility shops like seven eleven are next to it. There is a currency exchange shop too right outside the hotel.
Only problem is the language as most people do not understand English.
The hotel has a great discotheque on the fifth floor..
