Pavilion Century Tower
Ranked #73 of 2,865 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Century Tower is a comfortable 4-star tower hotel, next door to its larger partner, the 5-star Pavilion hotel. The Pavilion hotel seemed to be very popular with Chinese tour groups, whereas the Century Tower was a bit quieter. I think some of the floors on the hotel are apartments.

Both the Pavilion and the Century Tower hotels are conveniently located above the Huaqiang North Road metro station, and at the heart of Shenzhen’s huge Shenzhen Electronics Group (SEG) computer and IT precinct on the northern side of the central Futian district.

The lobby of the Century tower is open, functional and reasonably attractive in golden marble. The Fusion café restaurant and bar on the ground floor provided a good breakfast in the mornings, with plenty of Asian and western choices.

The hotel room was excellent value for money. I had purchased a pre-paid “executive” room package including breakfast on a discount hotel booking website, and yet was still given a complimentary upgrade to a one-bedroom suite when I checked in. It was very comfortably outfitted with small lounge and nicely decorated bedroom. The bathroom was particularly spacious and well lit. I liked the fact that the bathroom uses bulk refillable shampoo and shower gel dispensers – which I much prefer to the wasteful practice of supplying small throwaway single-use plastic bottles. I wish more Chinese hotels would encourage environmental sustainability in this way.

On the second floor of the hotel is the huge Chunmanyuan Chinese restaurant. It appeared to be full during lunch (tours perhaps?) but when I visited it for a Chinese meal one evening it was completely empty. My fuwuyuan (waitress) proceeded to yell my order from the table to another staff member closer to the kitchen, rather than present the order herself. That was certainly a new and unexpected experience.

Shenzhen is a very spread-out city and it can take a long time in a taxi to get from one side to the other (eg, Luohu border with Hong Kong, to Shekou port), so it is important that if you are visiting for business, you locate yourself as close as possible to your clients. Futian is one of the more central districts though, and most definitely if you are visiting Shenzhen to do any business in computer hardware or software within SEG, then the location of the Century, or Pavilion hotels would be ideal.

It should also be noted that the Shenzhen Metro is currently building a station and line at SEG, and the construction goes right past the Century Tower hotel. Construction goes 24 hours. I wasn't concerned at all by lights and some construction noises, but if you are considering this hotel you should be aware of the subway construction going on nearby.

Room Tip: High floor away from subway construction

I stayed there more than 10 days with my colleagues during a business trip this month..the warm hospitality and service welcomes you from the boys and girld on the main door to the smiley face girls on main desk till room service... a good breakfast buffet. .. amazing location near the best shopping street Huxien bay road... 2 minutes away from Metro station.... free and good wifi ... bettercoverage in lobby and lower floors.... wired internet available in the room. ..
My only down point that hotel lobby didn't have a place to sit wait for friends or relax with a cig. ..you can sit in the cafe but you should order something if you wanted to sit long or smoke a cig... and this is a small point compared with the over all experience. ... I really enjoyed the staying. .

Friendly service, good food (also for western taste); good location in the downtown area. Nice and spacious rooms. Beautifull indoor garden, terrace bar. Sport & spa facilities.
We stayed here for more than 3 weeks and after some negotiations got a very interesting rate for the rooms.
Close to the "computer and electronics shopping centre.

Travelers be careful to be brought to the right hotel as the Pavilion Century and Pavilion hotel are just next to each other. Although owned by the same group it is still some distance away especially after a long flight. That is exactly what happened to us but the bell staff was quick enough to realize the problem and showed us to a golfcart which brought us to the correct hotel.
Checking in was very fast and the front desk was very helpful I giving us maps and indicating the areas which we want to go to and even helping us in the directions. The subway was right in front
Of the main Pavilion hotel which was very convenient since we had to go to the Shenzhen Convention Center for three days. The area is also very convenient if you want to shop for anything electronics as there are huge buildings with hundreds of electronics shops selling from spare parts to finished products. Fashion and other clothing are also available especially in the MOI shopping mall with several stories of department store.
Rooms were large and clean with only wired Internet (free)available in the rooms. Free Wifi is available in the lobby and coffee shop area. Breakfast was good with proper variety and selections especially if you are staying for a few days and having breakfast in the same place everyday. I would suggest the noodle bar where you can make your choice of ingredients and type of noodles and itt is freshly cooked for you. Coffee was also good as its freshly ground when you order from the waiters.

Good: Clean large room with clear view shower, good service, lower price compared to Pavilion Hotel next door, wired internet in room, wi-fi in lobby and breakfast area downstairs
Not so good: slow elevators, too many smoker used rooms, check non-smoking room with your noise before accepting it, location good for shopping electronics & mobile phones only, taxi rides to other locations have lots traffic jams and at least 1 hour needed, same breakfast menu

Room Tip: check non-smoking room they offer and ask for change if you smell smoke!

At the end - it's always the little things that do it or not.
The location of the hotel is great - right at at the start of IT street of Shenzhen, next to all the electronics malls and shops.
The room is large, well spaces and comfortable. The bed is wide and very cozy.
The bathroom is light and clean.
But:
1. The shower is large but no bathtub
2. The closet is very small with no actual space
3. My colleague that was with me have asked for a non-smoking room and he get the opposite altho they said it's not. We understand that because they have left the ashtray with ash on the table.
4. Almost all TV channels are Chinese
5. The view from the room window (small window) is not very pleasant to see

Room Tip: Asked a room with a view to the main street
