First trip to HK - need hotel advice

We will be in HK from Oct 7-20 and are wondering where to stay. Currently we are looking at the Sunshine Hotel in Shenzhen. The hotel reviews look good and the price is very reasonable but I'm unsure of the area. We were hoping for an area that had restaurants and shops within walking distance though we expect to use public transportation and taxis as needed. What are your thoughts about the hotel's area?

You should post in the Shenzhen forum for a Shenzhen hotel.

However, I am not sure if you meant you will be staying at Shenzhen while visiting HK. That is not a feasible plan. The daily border crossing alone will take at least one hour. The daily commute time between Shenzhen and HK will take at least 90 minutes.

Need a Hotel in Hong Kong

The hotel you mention is in Shenzhen and not hotel. There is a border between HK and mainland China (Shenzhen). Are you aware of this?

There are plenty of restaurant in that area, but it is simply not in Hong Kong.

Hi ,ShenZhen is not inside HK.

Tourist in HK will take a train to cross the border to ShenZhen for a short trip.eg 1 to 2 nights shopping

I will advise you to stay in HK and there many reasonable hotel around to spent your holiday in HK.

If you stay in Shenzhen to tour Hong Kong everyday, be prepared to spend 1 hour on the border crossing, and another hour to commute to your sight-seeing spot. i.e. spending 4 hours round-trip daily as an overhead.
