“A wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

This was my first visit Shenzhen and I asked my Chinese colleague for advice on hotel accommodation. From a list of 5 hotels provided, I was really glad that I selected this particular hotel.

I found the hotel to be immaculate and clean. The staff is so friendly and helpful - they were just wonderful. It was such a pleasure to stay there. Most imporantly, I found the prices to be quite reasonable compared to what you would generally pay in a quality hotel in China these days.

Also the location is just great. It is just next door to a great shopping mall which also has a lot of very good restaurants. It really was a quiet oasis. If and when I next visit Shenzhen, I know where I will stay.

Returned for a third stay in this hotel, and it improves each time. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable, and the staff throughout the hotel are attentive and helpful, if fact I'd say that service was better than when this hotel was branded a Crowne Plaza.

I've stayed here about 4 times over the past 5 years. It recently re-branded from a Crowne Plaza, which is fortunate because I had been breaking my "holiday inn boycott" to stay here. This location was originally chosen because of it's location near our offices. However, after staying here a few times, I struggle to convince myself to stay elswhere.

The personnel are friendly and relatively solid with their English skills. At any rate, the English skills have improved over the past few years. The rooms are clean, although not overly large. You are also next door to a giant high end shopping mall (because the Chinese are the world's best shoppers) and the "Windows of the World" amusement park. Not that I have ever had time to explore either...

The lobby and restaurants are very attractive and the personnel are always smiling and happy. This is a place that I can recommend with ease, especially since I only paid around $142 per night (inclusive of a very good breakfast).

I just completed a second stay at the Venice and I'm even more impressed than I was the first time. The hotel design is fun and well-followed-through in a detail sense. My room was spacious, clean and well-appointed. Most of all, though, the Venice is about its staff. It felt like coming home, everyone was so warm and friendly.

At first I was a bit leary that this hotel changed from Crown Plaza to another management earlier this year. But my fears were put to rest, and my family was impressed with the themed decor, the huge indoor/outdoor pool, the gym, the breakfast buffet, and the quality of service. The workers all spoke English (though not fluently, but good enough), and were polite and attentive. The room was clean and smelled fresh. The bed was soft and comfy, and the bathroom was big and well stocked. The hotel was just a 2 minutes walk to the Holiday Plaza mall, and the Window of the World theme park. I live in Hong Kong now, but born and lived in California for 53 years, so my judgements are made through American eyes.

Stayed on night only.
Big rooms.
Average food.
The hotel is a bit run down but service is great. The adjacent Chinese restaurant is excellent.
Ordered via Expedia and got excellent price.
