The Asta is an excellent hotel and very well placed on Fumin Road and it is my regular accomodation on my visits to Shenzhen. Staff are very good and some reception staff speak English. The hotel has helped me many times with transport to the border and Hong Kong airport. Good shopping centre with supermarket next door and many good local restaurants who are very happy to see westerners and very friendly and helpful. Good restaurant attached to hotel. Breakfast is good with Chinese and Western options. Only small issue that I have is that the aircon controls in rooms are next to useless.
