“Where are the taxis ???”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Stayed over for 2 nights - on the 26th floor.

The first thing that hits you on checking in - is the huge signboard behind the counter - with all the names of blockbuster movies and the "Oscars" in front of the counter. I have never been checked in by staff using lap tops.

The counter staff are pretty cheerful and helpful when approached.

The hotel has several themes and we found ourselves (a total of 6 rooms) in a Mideastern styled room.

The room is huge - two queen sized beds joined together form my bed. It is softer than the norm (in China). None of us had any complaint about the airconditioning. Operating the TV is frustrating as they incorporated adverts into the screen and actual pix is only 2/3 of the frame.

The bathroom has all the usual amenities and has a shower and a long bath. Towels are fluffy.

Breakfast on the 20th floor - they only open at 7am - selection is fairly comprehensive but the floor looks like it has not been cleaned for ages (the black marble flooring reflects any dirt clearly - its oily). Overall feeling having breakfast ? No good as hygiene standard is somewhat lacking.

The chef overcooked my noodles - is soggy and not crunchy...twice on both mornings + took a long time as the heater is about 3 metres away from the counter.

Long queues form each morning (for the lower office tower??) - the 20 and above guest rooms floors have only 2 elevators so its "rush hours" in the morning.

Taxis - the hotel do not have a bell service - so you could be standing outside trying to flag down a cab..... we took 45 mins on a Tues evening and failed to hail a cab

The hotel is about a hour's drive from SZX airport - so leave about 3 hours prior to your flight's departure to avoid missing your flight as traffic can be unpredictable.

Comfortable, affordable, decent location. On arrival my non-smoking room had a bad odour of smoke. The hotel kindly re-roomed me. Breakfast buffet is acceptable but nothing to shout about. I find it a little odd to serve sushi for breakfast...in China at least, and not very good sushi at that.
Rooms are modern, miniailistic and comfortable. Great value for money.

After trying many hotels in Shenzhen, finally I found the one which offers great service, clean and well appointed rooms, and a fabulous breakfast - Western as well as Chinese.
Located in Luohu District, it is close to the railway station to Hong Kong.
I can only highly recommend this place.

Spacious clean and comfort Hotel rooms designed with different styles to suit your taste. Pricing is reasonable especially when you book in advance to have a free upgrade. Hotel facilities is little, say one restaurant ,no swimming pool or gym .... Yet there are so many choices just opposite the Hotel across the road in the Mix Mall and nearby Malls. Transport to other places of Shenzhen is so easy with the MTR ;the nearest station Grand Theatre is just five minutes walk across the road.

Room Tip: Book early. Enjoy free cancelling for no free upgrade if choice is available.
