The Huaqiang Plaza hotel is an upscale hotel right in the middle of the Huaqiang Bei electronic market frenzy. The hotel lobby is on the 23rd floor so you enter on ground level and take the elevators. The lobby is large and modern flanked on either side of the reservation desk by restaurants. I was checked in quickly and given my room request without hassle. Some of the staff have good English.
My standard room was modern, large, with two comfortable double beds, work table, side chair and floor to ceiling windows. I asked for a non-smoking room and actually got one, though the air conditioning system would sometimes fail me by injecting faint cigarette odors. There was a large flat screen TV with limited English channels. The internet was free and one only needed to enter your room number as a password. The room had a coffee/tea service nook (instant coffee).
The bathroom was on the larger size, marble tiles, no-fog mirror, and a big shower with dual heads. Amenities included an extended set of items, which are much better than any US hotel, and had adequate towels.
I came at a very slow time, so my rate was low, though it did not include breakfast. In general I rank this hotel at almost a 4 star hotel, and I think you will like it.
The hotel is ground-central for Huaqiang Bei electronic district; in my opinion, this has passed Akihabara (Tokyo) as the best of its kind in the world. Now, the entire street is torn up and closed as they are constructing a new subway line, so you will want to ask for a park view room to avoid the construction noise. This place was always difficult to reach by car (even bus) so I recommend you take the subway (Green or Red line) to Huaqiang road and walk the three blocks to the hotel.
If you get a good rate, you will like this hotel.
