“Nice location but rather local old fashioned hotel”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I spent almost a week there, not much to say. Local 5 stars which does not deserve 5 stars. Wifi in the rooms and 2 things I really appreciate: the bed sheets and the international style sockets each side of the bed. Looks it's nothing but when I have this, I'm already happy.
Breakfast is poor, don't get fruit juices..
Their elevator system to go on the top of the building to enjoy the view and the revolving restaurant is simply crazy. It is like you are in the subway, with the need to change stations 3 times..
But location is nice, close to one of the best mall in Shenzhen with lot of fancy restaurants at the top.
Note that this place is said to be the only hotel in Chine reversing entirely its benefits to caritative associations.

Decent rooms nothing great to brag about. however the best part was the rotating restaurant on the 50th floor which provides a very good view of the city. The buffet was for 150 RMB which is not very expensive compared with other big hotels. The hotel also has a decent spa ,massage center

Reviewed April 8, 2013

it was our second stay at this hotel during our business travel to Schenzen.

Hospitality as soon as we entered was warm despite some staff finding english difficult to understand, they made up with their welcoming smile and upgrading us to a huge room , as they knew we had chosen to come here again.

Room was huge the bathroom matched up to the size with all inclusive.

Service at all restraurants was amazing. We had dinner at the Chinese restuarant, english was an issue but the food and the service surpassed it. It was something to remember that the stewart came all the way to the elevator to wish us goodbye !!

The location is good too with other hotels around. The only negative that at 4.00 on Saturday morning we heard a lot of cars and screams of those who had just finished partying at a club with is in the Hotel across. Weekdays we did not face the problem though.

Well we shall definately stay here when we go to Shenzen for they do not take it for granted each time to think of them!

Hope you come back with good memories to tell us too.

Not so good.
Cheap. Good spot but average place all up. Needs a total refurb.

Breakfast was good. Reception desk girls didn't speak much English which cn make it hard.

The outside building makes it look amazing but inside not so

If I could rate this hotel lower than one I would. The lobby was awesome, the photos of e rooms we saw were fabulous however the room was disgraceful, so we went back and paid for an upgrade. Our next room was little better so we checked out immediately. It's not as though the room rate was cheap either, we paid five star money for a five star hotel that should be listed as two stars at the most!

Room Tip: Don't stay so forget choosing a room!

Upon arriving at the place, it seem ordinarily. lobby was so so. but the rooms was pretty spacious and clean. realized that each room had a different design and concept. the rates are pretty affordable for a business stay and the room is spacious and comfortable. its pretty easy to grab a cab outside so theres no worries bout getting to where you need to get to in time.

Room Tip: book earlier in advance through online as the walk in rate is much higher

Panglin is aging a bit but they did just refinish the lobby area. Rooms are large and in decent condition. This hotel is on a very crowded intersection so it can be a bit noisy (like everything in ShenZhen).
The location is great, just a 2 minute walk to a very nice shopping mall with restaurants and a movie theater. There is also an MTR station accessible from within the mall.
Good business hotel.

Room Tip: High room will be quieter and you get a very nice view.
