Lingnan Garden Inns Shenzhen Baoan South Road
Ranked #763 of 2,843 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed 1 March 2013

Located around 10 minutes fast walk from the Laojie main train hub and about 25 minutes from the Hong Kong border ( or 2 short metro stops), along 2 boulevards.
Numerous eateries, banks and commercial facilities all around. Opposite KFC and other fast foods but I found a great family cafe well behind KFC which provided me with a large egg-veg-noodle soub bowl for around £1.60 and all the Chinese tea I wanted (typical).
Agoda got me a great internet deal, which I extended for another week when my 3rd hotel was cancelled without my knowledge. This walk-in price was a fair bit more at about £13.50 a night.

Staff had minimal English and Pinyin - and no computer or internet facilities.
No breakfast or victuals were provided which didn't bother me as the 2 most expensive hotels I have visited had pretty dire breakfasts and appalling scrambled eggs!

The room was basic but sufficient. UK style shaver sockets were provided but unlike the more expensive plugs they did not offer other UK sockets.

Excellent TV offering but the TV would switch itself off temporarily after a while.

I noticed that the main fire exit was padlocked at night whilst the alternate was exit only.

Adequate air-con during the cool climate spell.

Hotel situated on floors above a very helpful Chinese bank.

Great value all round and much cheaper than our normal UK hostel dorms accommodation.

Room Tip: Learn Chinese characters for communication as you won't get by with just Mandarin pinyin or engl...

Reviewed 20 October 2012

The garden inn is very suitable if you plan to just stop over in the city of Shenzhen before leaving for elsewhere. The rooms are adequately clean, though very dark. Wifi is advertised, though in our experience, non-existent. The staff are helpful, though the place is fairly empty.

This is probably because of the location. On an outer bypass style road, there is very little of interest close by, though it is near to the border crossing (thus its merits as a stopover place). Should you be stopping at Shenzhen as a first port of call for a trip through China (as we were), then this hostel is not for you. It is very hard to begin to imagine yourself moving forward due to the language barrier that is strong here in comparison to other hostels in the city, and the lack of other residents with which you might talk and learn about the area.

A good hostel in terms of functionality, but a bad hostel for those seeking a comfortable, long term experience.

The Garden Inn is modest and inexpensive (under Y 200/nt or about $30) on floors 5 and 6 of a safe building. Clean, A/C (a good thing as it was 30 degrees), in good neighborhood. Upstairs is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the city(Summer Teahouse) with a bank on the main floor. Carrefour grocery store is a block away. Also couple blocks to the great Metro which I learned to take all over the city. Check out OCT arts area and Luohu Port shopping complex (where the really low prices and tailors are).

Room Tip: Ask to see a couple of rooms first. Not much English spoken at the desk but they have a chart of roo...
