Reviewed July 5, 2013

I stayed in this hotel around 3 years back..
The hotel was really great and situated very near to the market.
The rooms are big with all the facilities.
The view from the rooms was simply amazing
The breakfast provided by them was tasty and suitable for an Asian vegetarian..
Highly recommended..

The room is average with no added value, if you're planning to stroll around shenzhen and spend the night to sleep only, then perhaps this is the place which you won't bother to take any further attention on the details of the room. Terrible terrible wifi connection, which of course outcast you from the rest of the world, even sending/receiving e-mail (that wasn't banned) is difficult. Shall we skip on the service? Pffft, you expect to be greeted in the morning, well at least to begin your day with, but noooo.. All the waitress, concierge anyone in this hotel seems to have a monstrous problem in life, so depressing. Since shenzhen is now to be considered as one of a big city to do business, means a lot of international visitor will surely visit SZ, at least the hotel crew have the decency to speak english, but again nope, only a few of the crew can speak english and thank god i had my host to translate mandarin.
Breakfast was bad, forget it, get yourself a decent breakfast from one of the restautant/cafe located near the hotel.
Massage place is quite bad, it functions as a gamble/mahjong place,where in this part of the world can you find a massage parlor that allowed smoking and loud tv noise? Why of course.. In grand central,it's located outside the hotel, take the lift and go to the fourth floor, but if your muscles aren't sore enough, sleep will do dandy for you.
If it wasn't for the convenient location, near mall, restaurants, windows of the world and i stay for free, i'd stay in a better hotel.

Grand View Hotel , situated in very nice location, close to malls and main road, realy has Grand View of city from the rooms , higher ups. Rooms are large, well decorated Furnished with nice views. In the Hotels I have stayed , common problem is internet, no Wi-Fi. Service would have been better if the staff are well trained.

Room Tip: Rooms higher floors are good

The hotel is situated next to a huge shopping mall so if you want to shop it's very convenient. Prices are good. Only the occasional member of staff can speak English so it was hard to communicate any needs - Wi Fi problems etc. Our visit was during the summer & it was very hot outside. The a/c went off when you removed your key card so we got a second key to leave in. The public areas were hot & stuffy. The breakfast cafe was open to the shopping mall & was also too hot to be comfortable even at breakfast. The buffet was meager for western food but average for Chinese selection. The wait staff were young & just seemed to stand around even when tables were dirty & people wanted somewhere to sit. The first room we were shown to was terribly smelly of food cooking. The second room was fairly clean although items of trash were found under the bedside table and the carpet was stained. The bed was pretty hard. The drain didn't work very well in the shower stall so the tray filled up with water as you showered. We ate a couple of times at the restaurant in the hotel and the food was very good. I don't know how much the room cost as it was paid for by our hosts but I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

This hotel is value for money situated close to METRO Station and in the heart of business district of Futian.
Rooms are big, airy and bright.
It lacks English communication.
Brakfast offered is good only it lacks English name tags against items provided.

I don't know where to begin. I have finally found the worst hotel i've ever stayed in. Like previous reviews it must have been a nice hotel when it first opened but has not had anything updated since.
It is dirty, shabby and dimly lit both in the rooms and hallways. The front desk staff are unfriendly, have no international experience and don't really care. They even insisted on checking the room during checkout (in case we stole something I presume). The dining room/bar is a joke, as well as being out of almost everything we ordered. The bar is stocked with many empty bottles as if we wouldn't notice. It is worn, the food is awful and the wait staff are all teenagers with no adult supervision, sloppy and unprofessional with no dining room experience. The room service can't seem to replace even the basics such as toilet paper ( even with a hint of placing the cardboard roll on the front of the sink so they wont miss it) I had to resort to using my cell phone as a flashlight in the hallways to get my own toilet paper from an abandoned service cart.
I thought at first that China must be in really bad shape until we visited the Sheraton a few blocks away. It was like night and day. Needless to say we spent the rest of our time in their bar for cocktails and restaurants for meals. Take my advice and avoid the Grand View There was nothing good about it.

Let me start from the only +, which is location. Hotel is a part of "Coastal City mall" heaven, so, you can easily find loads of bars, restaurants, bars in a walking distance from hotel. As for the negatives:
1. Hotel is totally worn out - seems, that no renovation has been done since the time of opening
2. Hotel seems to be located just on two floors, one is shared with several restaurants, so, in evening lobby is crowded with some hard drunken loud fellas, which are definitively not a best scenery after a day of hard work.
3. And the last one - pls, refer to attached photo for a unexpected surprise, which we've managed to detect in our room (on the other hand, hotel staff changed our room to another one after our claim, and there were no surprises in a new room).
