The Novotel Bauhinia is a nicely appointed hotel in Shenzhen, and the room prices are very good for the quality level of the room. The bathroom is very nice, and the big shower is rather nice as well. The hotel is nice looking overall, and clean. The room is very conformable and the internet service is solid. However, the lobby is unpleasantly cold, with what feels like a steady breeze blowing through there. If I did not need to eat here, I would have liked it a lot more. I arrived around 8:30PM and had to leave early the next day, so did not have much choice. We tried to eat in the Chinese restaurant but it was saturated with a gross smoky smell (at least it was last night 1-21-2014), so much so that we could not stay there.
Both the food the service in the lobby restaurant were pretty bad. I think I had the worst hotel burger I have ever had and that is saying a lot as I have had many hotel burgers. This one was basically burned to a crisp and had large gristle chunks inside. It was super salty too. Eeash. The fries were decent, but then the ketchup came with unknown chunks of foreign material in there. My Chinese colleague was grossed out too. I asked for mayonnaise and it never came. At breakfast the next day, they were still setting up the buffet 15 minutes after opening and then had a big attitude about cooking me some eggs which were scrambled with a very large amount of cooking oil. Imagine your eggs floating on a lake of oil. Gross. While walking from the buffet to my table with my hands full of food and juice, the manager chased me down to get me to sign the bill while I was still trying to eat. Pretty rude, especially when the place was pretty much empty.........not cool.
