Honlux Apartment
Ranked #42 of 2,840 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Nice hotel, a bit dated but great value for money. Our first night was tough, we neglected to ensure our room was a non-smoking room, and as the odour-eaters lifted, the smell kicked in, and by morning it was horrid. The bed was tiny too, I'm just on 6ft and my legs where hanging way over the end. Thanks to the friendly staff, we where able to get an upgrade for just a few bucks - and the difference was amazing. For about an extra 5usd, we had a super clean, non- smelling and slightly more spacious room, with a bigger bed. The area itself is very much catering to the westerner seeking comforts of home (if that's your thing). But for us, we prefer the real China authenticity. But this is just a short trip on MTR away, which is very close. All-in-all a great hotel for the price, just get the upgraded non-smoking room.

Stayed here on a return to Shekou - initially came in 2004 when the whole sea-world area was new. Now, almost 10 years later, it is a vibrant area with many restaurants and hotels. The Honlux remains good value - fair-sized rooms, clean and central. Friendly check-in staff. Breakfast (included) is good with a variety available.

In the area on business and staying here a month. It is a very clean, safe and friendly hotel. The rooms are comfortable. They do three free laundry items a day for you. The breakfast is OK, but it is free.

The draw back is construction down the road and sometimes the square area beside it.

NO POOL NO WORK OUT ROOM AS WELL.

Stayed for 10nights on the 4th floor facing the main road.
Pros:
- this is an expat area with a lot of foreigners, hence less "messy" & more safe than other areas in Shenzhen.
- hotel is conveniently located across the road from train station, which linked up to the rest of Shenzhen.
- surrounded by restaurants with international crusines (ie. Italian, Thai, German, Irish, Korean, Jap, Chinese...)
- comfortable bed & pillows, clean room.
- 15mins walk to Shekou ferry terminal, where you can take a ferry to Hong Kong/zhuhai/Macau. Ferry to Hong Kong is 1hr.
Cons:
- room is very small (though bathroom is comparatively big with bath tub).
- location is far from the happening areas of Shenzhen (ie. dongmen), takes abt 1hr+ by train to reach.
- small hotel (only 5 levels) with no gym/pool facilities.
- sea world & the surrounding areas are all under renovation, a lot of construction works, disrupting walking paths way.
- too few power sockets in the room, if you have a few devices, will need a multiplug.

Stayed for 2 nights mid May.
Location is excellent as 50m from MTR over looking a square full of restaurants.
Room was spacious and clean, limited interaction with staff but no problems checking in or out
and staff always greet you when passing.
Did not eat or drink at the hotel but the food in the adjoining restaurants was excellent.
Female entertaiment was readily available outside the entrance after dark but not blatantly so and a simple shake of the head is all that is required for them to leave you alone. It was all very discrete so no worries if this sort of thing is a concern to you

Honlux is a nice hotel located in a pleasant area. The hotel is clean and the staff is very polite and helpful. around the hotel there are many restaurants, for types of food: Mexican, Italian, American, Brazilian, etc. You can noticed that Shekou is a neighborhood that many expats live.
