“HORRIBLE PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

If you want a comfortable, enjoyable place to stay to give you a good idea of what a great city Shenzhen is ,,,don't stay here. Beds are hard. Staff is rude. No one speaks English or any other language but Mandarin. Floors and carpets are dirty. Stairwells and hallways are usually dark at night. Street people often stay there for several hours, they come and go at all hours of the night. The windows are filty. One washing machine for 22 floors so forget that. Maids are nice but can't help you. No change for washing machine. Hot stuffy lobby,they allow smoking on all floors and rooms even though you will see no smoking signs. Showers leak, sink leaks. Towels smell odd. The area around the hotel is dirty , rubbish everywhere. Late nights you will hear drunks from KTV near by fighting on the street. Constant construction going on , no uncommon to hear machines working late nights and early mornings. Curtains dirty.
Save your money and stay in a place that takes pride in their work.

Room Tip: No swimming pool, fitness center available. Oh, there is one little computer in the smoke filled lob...

I stayed in the "round" room, where the bed and room is a round design. The room was very run down, not very clean with the floor feeling sticky. The mattress was already too worn in until I could feel the unevenness for the bed planks. I was not able to shut the windows tight as the rubber seals were missing which affected my sleep at night due to the construction that was going on at the main road. Terrible place to stay. Management should consider refurbishing the place.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main road tend to be noisier.

The hotel is located very near to Hua Qiang Road, just opposite of Cybermall. Walking distance to all electronic/3C mall around the area. Walking distance from metro station but their main entrance is facing parking lots, sideways and at the back of the building, had to pay attention to the signboard along the road if coming from metro station A exit. the room round bad is special but it quit old, but clean, the room is a bit too dark, lighting on bathroom is very dim. In room broadband is good but dont have Wifi. Overall a good hotel if you have some business to deal @ Hua qiang area, or you keen to buy 3C product at that area.

A Grandpa stands by the front door at Motel 268 from about 4PM until midnight. As my girlfriend walked ahead, he handed me a "business" card featuring young women in lingherie and phone numbers. Around midnight, light taps on my door announced "dingdong" girls who rent rooms here for a few hours, and then literally go door to door. Management gives you a plastic key for the elevator but I saw "security" use their own cards to send these young businesswomen upstairs. I guess it's the China way. I was given 3 more cards on the way to Pizza Hut. The metro is 3 long blocks away and you have to go up and down about 150 steps before you reach the Metro entrance. "Subway" means under the street, NOT Metro. I had packages sit for days even though I kept asking if they had arrived. Hotel trash sits iun huge piles along the side wall unemptied for days. Dirty sheets are piled all day in the hallway.

Room Tip: If tall you cannot fit on the round beds

99rmb rooms are only via online booking which are very hard to get.
Suggest getting yourself a VIP card for only 99rmb if u plan to stay or visit china offen as this gives you a 30% discount.
Average room costs 169 rmb, booking suggested but i always just walked in and grabbed a room. Staff speak enough english to get you booked in, it can be busy at times so be patience and be prepared to wait. Hotel is secure you need a card to access the elevator and rooms.

THe side rooms are quite large and have good space, showers are hot and the pressure is medium, beds are strong, sheets as usual not much else to keep you warm if its cold. They do have a window the side which is ok for some air and some views of the local buildings.

The middle rooms are a funky round / heart bed with a mirror on top, which now some rooms have covered, its a wierd shape room so not much room to move around, little dark even with the lights on.

Suggest not getting a room near the elevator as it can get quite noisy at nite.

No Wifi but have old school ethernet (ok if you have a laptop) ipad your in trouble.

Tv is basic not IP so no english channels except TVB.

Locally there is everything. all the wholesale electronic market, walking distance to the clothing market. Easy access to the bus, train and 29rmb to the boarder to goto hong kong.

Food wise there is a mcdonald near by, and a lot of local restaurants, bread shop and grocery stores for drinks , smokes and little extras you need.

Room Tip: walking distance straight down shannon road or what its cold, main rd, will take you to citic city p...

We booked 2 rooms with 2 big beds each. But they can't give us the rooms that we have booked but gave us small rooms with 1 round single bed each. Me and my friends have share sleeping together on the single bed.

What a nightmare.

The cheapest room is rmb 168 round bed.. no window... not so clean and looks dingy.. but to crash out in the middle of the nite .. not a bad option.
Other rooms are very good.. try to take with a veiw to the main road.. ie SEGA market.. walkin type bathroom.. big rooms... staff is very helpful.
No other facility like restuarant... etc
