“Great location, comfy, but not for light sleepers”
Reviewed April 23, 2010

Stayed in this hotel while attending a conference in Shenzhen. I RAVE about this hotel's location. It's about a 10-minute walk from the Luo Hu Customs (where you come to Shenzhen via Hong Kong's MTR). Tons of spas around this area - perfect for tired feet! There's a 7/11 right across, and lots of restaurants and malls in the area. The hotel is but a few minutes walk to the nearest Metro station, which runs throughout Shenzhen. Very convenient.

The room we stayed in was simple, but clean. One big bed with lovely sheets. Very, very clean bathroom. Tub was kind of small though. TV was outdated; Hello? Ever heard of LCD TVs?

Our room was at the back of the hotel, so it was really quiet, day and night. Well, until 10 pm. See, the problem is this hotel has a club on the 5th floor, with an entrance on the back of the building, which blares REALLY LOUD MUSIC that can be heard all the way to our floor - the 13th floor. That's seven floors! The partying stops at 2am, so if you're a light sleeper like me, the thumping bass might cause you some trouble sleeping. We would have changed rooms, only the hotel was fully booked while we were there.

The breakfast buffet included with our room rate was so-so. I would rather have breakfast at the nearby restos.

All in all, I would stay in this hotel again. But I would definitely get another room- one that's far away from that notorious club on the 5th floor.

Booked 2 rooms: 1 deluxe suite (as non smoking rooms only available in deluxe suite) and 1 superior rooms (the smoking smell is not too bad, although would love to stay in a non smoking room)

Very clean, the service was excellent and efficient starting from my emails with the reservation department until checking out of the hotel.
English is ok, not the best, but alright for communicating.

around 10 minutes walk to Luo hu and a lot of cheap massage place nearby.

A lot of restaurants and mini market if you need anything.

Cheap rates too.

Asked for a discount every time you book the room.

On my 1st ever trip to Shenzhen, I stayed at the Century Plaza Hotel. It was a very pleasant stay. It is located a 5-10 min walk from the train station cming in from Hong Kong. Just walk down the street going straight from the station and you will find it.
Very friendly and helpful staff and the room was evry nice. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the amenities. Nicely decorated and very clean. The only downside was the extremely small bathtub. The length was fine but the depth was very shallow.
Tried the restaurant and the food was excelent with great service. The area around the hotel was quiet (relatively speaking) and felt safe. You can walk aound to the shops.
Definitely a comfortable hotel for a ShenZhen 1st timer
