“Not as advertised”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

I was expecting a lot more from a member of the Summit Group of Luxury Hotels. Unfortunately, the Panglin did not live up to it's promise from it's website or from the expectations inferred from its membership in the Summit Group. This hotel was a Sheraton hotel 6 years ago. While the lobby is impressive, once you go to some of the other lower floors there is an atmosphere of a closing business. The rooms are ok, but are clearly worn and in need of renovation. The carpets have folds in them and you have to be careful not to trip. In addition, the staff has very little English, making communication problematic. The air conditioning in centralized, and appears to be turned off after midnight and turned on again around 6 am, making sleeping uncomfortable. On the plus side, the rooms are big and there are plenty of strategically placed power outlets. The internet connections are good and fast. The complementary breakfast is average. Unfortunately these pluses are not enough to encourage me to stay here again.

Great location in the heart of Luohu with a few Indian restaurants nearby, 24 hour convenience stores and east to get to most parts of Shenzhen. The staff are nice. Rooms are getting a bit old but still clean and spacious. Good shower pressure. The breakfast was nothing to write home about.

Stayed in the hotel with my son for 3 nights when visiting him in China. The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious and the bathrooms were huge. It was very clean and the staff were really helpful. The restaurant charged different prices for tourists than for locals (twice as much for the buffet). Overall an enjoyable stay and close to transport and shopping.

We were able to book this hotel for a great rate…but what you get is never 5-Star quality: The personal speaks almost no english, the building itself is old and very bad renovated (china quality?). The rooms are very big, but I never slept on such hard beds in my life! Also we booked a non-smoking room but there was a ugly smell of old smoke in the room.

The breakfast buffet was pretty good, but although we booked with breakfast (and two adults) there was only 1 breakfast included!? Who wants only 1 breakfast for two persons?

So, the price was cheap and also what we got - I would not recomend this place at all. The only really good thing is the location.

Room Tip: dont stay in this hotel…
