This hotel is a bargain. I stayed there in the 1990s when it was the only 5 star hotel in Shenzhen and it was fabulous. Since then it has been taken over by Best Western who have done their best to downgrade it and make it seem like an American airport hotel. Look past the tacky Best Western branding though and the fundamentals of this fine hotel shine through. The whole property is exceptionally clean. The rooms are generous and quiet. There is free fast internet in all rooms. There is a ping pong room, standard dance studio, gym and fine swimming pool if you need exercise. Then there are the 2 spas for recovery. The staff are well trained and efficient.
Best of all is the location which is about a 2 minute walk from the Luohu train/MTR station, meaning that the delights of central Hong Kong are less than 45 minutes away. It is feasible to commute into Hong Kong and save yourself a fortune since an equivalent Hong Kong hotel would usually cost around 5 times the price.
The restaurants and bars in the hotel all seem fine. There are also a myriad of alternatives in the neighbourhood which is safe. For tea drinkers, the best tea market I have ever visited is only a 3 minute walk away on Jianshe Road.
Some reviewers have reported negatively on the condition of some of the decorations. Yes the piece of wood under the front of my wash basin could have been re-varnished. Some of the carpets are past their prime. These are all cosmetic flaws and probably a result of the Best Western effect. Look past that to see a super clean, comfortable luxury hotel at a very competitive price.
I will certainly book the Felicity again and I look forward to that stay.
