Novotel Shenzhen Watergate
Ranked #73 of 2,866 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Close to 2 MTR stations each 5 mins walk from hotel. Location difficult to find by cab driver, make sure you print a colour google map with Chinese Street names for the driver. The hotel actually locate behind a commercial building. look for the Name Signage along the main street.

Clean rooms good reception service.

I got in after midnight and there is only one staff at the counter but she is very efficient. You can tell the place is newly renovated and the room is spacious and clean. The only thing I have to complain is the design of the bath tub. They don't have any curtain installed and there is only a small glass partition on one side of the tub. It's too narrow so after shower the whole floor is wet. Luckily I only need to stay for one night. The other thing they should do is adding a lamp at the desk, otherwise the room light is too dim to read/work at the desk. When I checked out in the morning there are 5 staff working at the counter but it seems very chaotic due to the number of people checking in and out at the same time. They need to re-design the work area so it's easier for guests to quete up (something difficult to do in China). The place is not far from Shenzhen metro and close to many banks. Overall I enjoyed the stay and consider the place not cheap but reasonable.

I have stayed this hotel one night as I had a conference in Shenzhen until at night and I had to go back to Japan next day.

Before I go to the conference I have visited this hotel at around 8:30 AM and asked them to keep my big luggage.
But they let me check in at the time and I could leave my luggage in my room.

Room was very clean and I could sleep well.

The location is close enough to walk to subway station.
But it is necessary to go through under path to cross a big inter section.
With a big luggage it is a little tough, then I recommend to take a taxi.

Since I departed this hotel at 6:00 AM, I could not enjoy breakfast but it will be good as I could see so many foreigners coming out from the restaurant at 8:30 in the morning.

Hotel was totally renovated for the 2011 Universiade and is as good as new with a comfortable bed. The subway station is 5 minute walk away. They offer a good selection for breakfast and to my taste. The only thing is the swimming pool. It says on the hotel directory that the pool closes at 2200, but when I went down at 2100, it was already all dark and locked up.

When check-in to room, I was asked to give a cash deposite of Y500. However, to the best of my understanding that members of A-plus are trust worthiness and so their reputation are strong enough to have the deposite waived.

I just didn't mind to pay the Y500, but it seemed my image was damaged.

Novotel Watergate is newly renovated and is a good hotel, but there are a few things they should do better; The first thingis that it is very close located to the Shenzhen Metro with a few minutes walk thru the underground system and just a 100 meter on the pavement. But the Hotel entrance is located away from the main street so it is "impossible" to see it when looking for it. So had a hard time locate it on arrival, here I mean the hotel managment should but a effort in making the Hotel name/logo viewable from the main street. Check-in very nice and good quality, nice staff, The lobbay has 2 Mac computers for surfing etc. There are 2 elevators that take you too your room. The room was a Queen double bed with everything new except for the doors and windows. Nice bathroom with two shower heads that could be used at the same time, good water pressure and adjusting water temperature was easy. Minibar, Coffe, Water, flatscreen TV with a connecting panel so that you can connect your Laptop or audio device for viewing PC on big screen from bed if sitting at the work desk is hetting boring. There are also a FREE wired internet service in the room, very good! Overall an OK hotel, price in Asia they could do a litle bit better, but overall I will consider this hotel again for my next stay in Shenzhen. The hotel is located near the Grand Theatre Metro station, 2 stops away is the SEG Market, 4 stops same way is the Convention Centre and 5 stops away is the Coco Park and the same Metro line can take back and forth to the Airport East (International Airport). Metro: Airport -- > Grand Theatre = 8RMB, Taxi Hotel --> Airport 120RMB

If much luggage consider Taxi, if just a small bag, use Metro.
