“Need updating”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The Hotel like most reviews had mentioned stands on a busy street.

We were there on a 6days family trip; stayed in Meritus for 2 nights. Criteria for the agency is to choose hotels that have modern facilities and have wifi in the room. Comparing to hotels we stayed in the rest of the trip i.e. Chaozhou city, this is definitely better quality.

Request for a king size bed but it was not available. We did not try any restaurants in the hotel as there are too many good food in the city. The room is of good size but the furniture is a bit old. The bath room needs to refurbish definitely. The non slip rubber mat sitting in the bath tub leaves behind rust stain. We only dare to use the shower room.

I think there was an exhibition or seminar in the hotel when we were there. The lobby in the morning and evening is filled with people, most of them are smokers. Thankfully to the high ceiling at the lobby area, the place was not too smoky.

For a short touristy holiday, this hotel is suffice as we hardly stayed to enjoy the facilities of the hotel.

I stayed 3 nights on business, and my biggest complaint is the incredibly hard bed.
The restaurant in the lobby had the incredibly slow ala carte dinner service - sometimes a colleague would only get their food after the rest of us had eaten. The food was inconsistent too.
Free wifi that is easy to access.
If it was my choice, I would not return

The hotel stands on the busiest street and you can take a walk to Parkson for shopping in 10 minutes. The room is ok, and you have to pay for the internet.
As one of the modern city in China, the receptionists can speak fluently English and Madarin.
In addition, if you would like to book the shuttle bus to the hotel, you must check and check, cause I was not able to book the car to pick me up at the airport. The receptionist help me to book a private driver but it seems to be illegal in China. Then I try to catch the local taxi by myself, it is fun and of course very safe.

I stayed in the Meritus for 3 nights whilst on business in Shantou. The hotel seemed a little dated with the decor needing an update if being really picky. The room was a good size and with a separate bathroom and was kept clean & tidy during the 3 days I was there. Unfortunately my room was situated behind the elevator shaft which could be heard through the walls all night! Additionally, I had the buffet breakfast for x2 mornings, but the offerings were basic and not all that tempting

The room is clean and equipped but the bed is hard! I could hear a noise of springs when I lied down!

The service was ok BUT you must confirm your requests twice! I requested an extra bed to be prepared on the next day but they didn't do. I requested a bell boy service at 5.00 am in the next day morning but the night shift wasn't informed. At least all the staffs are very polite. It was just annoying that they keep forgetting.

It claims as a five-star hotel but I would say they charge you a five-star hotel price but the service and room are four stars.

A tip for traveller booking online, if u don't book a room with breakfast, dim sum in a chinese restaurant on second floor is good and the price is inexpensive.

We stayed two nights last month on business. As previous reviewers have said, it looks very grand but certain areas are a little on the tired side. The staff were excellent, and plenty of them to assist with check-in, WIFI etc. It is an easy place for colleagues to meet, and walking distance to a huge Walmart if you require any replacement things.
We had a non-smoking room and would certainly stay again.

This Hotel is the obvious choice if you travel to Shantou. Esthetically this hotel looks great and grand. The hotel is not super clean but just gets by the test. There is plenty of space and rooms are very big and luxurious with a nice huge bathroom too. The problem is that as usual in places like this the upkeep is not as it should be. However I cannot imagine me staying in any other hotel in Shantou. Eating in their Restaurant is not going to be one of your best meals but there again you are in Shantou so it's probably your best and safest bet. Mushroom soup is one very good thing to have if you are dining there. If you do have to travel to Shantou then I highly recommend this hotel.
