Hello and thanks for reading my review. If you liked it, then please do not hesitate to push the “Review was useful” - button, XIAXIA ^_^
In this review, it would have been very helpful to see all the many pics that I took, but unfortunately I left my digicam just a few days later in the seatpocket of a plane on a domestic flight in Indonesia, and not only the cam, but as well all the pics were gone :-(
If you are eager to see pics, there are many good pics on the agoda-website, which as well is the only major booking system where u can book rooms at this hotel.
I had read before that this hotel is located behind the walls of an ugly building and yes, it is like that indeed. When the Taxi driver dropped me, and I was standing in front of the building and eventually entered it, I thought by myself “oh god, where am I”. Things became more pleasant once I entered the lobby (which is located on the third floor), and became outright pleasant, once I arrived at my room. Despite the ugly building, this hotel is actually pretty new, and the rooms are almost “stylish”. I really liked the design, stonen floor (I hate those musty carpets found at so many places) and efforts had been made to even cater for smaller details. As in many of those new Chinese hotels, the bathroom is somehow integrated in the room, but in a way that did not bother me in any way. The room décor is in dark colors , which makes the room appear a bit dark too, even during daytime when the curtain is open. But there is sufficient lighting. Plenty of electric sockets to charge all ur mobilephones, ipods, laptops and whatever.
the location is very central, just 5-7 minutes walk to the Dongmen Pedestrian street, where there is a MRT-station as well, in case you want to connect to Shenzhen's growing subway-network. The MixC-Mall can be reached in a leisurely 15-17 minutes stroll (maybe not so leisurely when it rains or during the heat of the summer-months), or in a 5-minutes cab-ride. It is on a very busy thoroughfare, and yes, street-noise could be a problem. Though, the windows did shut surprisingly well, and did therefore let little of the rather monotonous street noise in. I am usually quite sensitive when it comes to “noise” as I am a light sleeper, but in that case it really did not bother me. Maybe it is a bigger problem if you have a room on a low floor. You could ask for a room to the back of the hotel (I did that, but in my case, there was no such room with queen bed available on that side at my early check-in time of 1 p.m.). the hotel does not have a restaurant, but in your room you will find a menu of a Chinese fast-food (fastfood in the meaning of: getting the food quickly, not in the meaning of “junk-food”). They do deliver to your room, but it is actually located right next to the hotel, so you can easily go there by yourself, particularly as it is open 24 hours. On the ground floor you find as well a 7/11-style convenience-store where u can get snacks, drinks, icecream or whatever u want. Behind the hotel there are numerous inexpensive Chinese restaurants, so you won't go hungry at any time of the day. There are quite a few of karaoke-joints nearby too, but at least in the room I had, I did not experience any noise from those places.
Reception staff was friendly and helpful and spoke enough English to discuss anything that I wanted to know or inquire about. When I asked them to write down the Chinese name and address of the hotel in Guangzhou I had to go after checking out in Shenzhen, they even called the hotel there to make sure they gave me the correct information and address. Great Service attitude !
I really liked the room-design a lot and it is difficult to describe it with words, too bad my pics were lost. In case I stay overnight in Shenzhen again in the future, I will most probably choose this place again, as it offers great value for money. Oh, one thing, they try to advertise themselves as a “4-star”. Well, it is NOT a 4-star (who would excpect that for such a low roomrate), but it is a very decent and new 3-star-hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend to others.
