This is a 4 star hotel that typically has good rates. It is probably overrated by half a star (typical of Chinese hotels). I had both an executive room and a standard room. The executive level room had a nice comfortable bed (4 pillows), was large and well decorated with a bigger flat screen TV with CNN, Bloomberg etc in English.. Better than average amenities in a large, granite bathroom. The internet is wired. A pretty-good buffet breakfast was included at this level. The hallways are showing their wear, but overall, this hotel room is a good one. The standard room (half price of the executive) was about the same, but had an older CRT, less comfortable bed, and a slightly lower class of amenities. The bathroom had a tub, but was not as nice as the executive level room
I asked for a non-smoking room (hard to find in Chinese owned hotels)...after I entered the room, there was a knock on the door, and in came housekeeping who scooped up the four ash trays and locked them in a drawer under the bar....thereby making it a non smoking room...as long as I did not smoke, I guess.
Lobby is nice, the front desk is friendly, but has a little trouble with English.
You will choose this hotel for a lower rate in a good location. This is within walking distance of the LouWu border area, behind the ShangriLa hotel. From Hong Kong airport, take the A43 bus (30HKD) to the first stop (40 minutes) and then the MTR (21HKD) one stop to the border. From the Shenzhen airport (or anywhere in Shenzhen) take the green line to the end and backtrack in a 5 minute walk to the hotel.
This is a few dollars more than some of the other "4 stars", but the transit conveninece may be worth it.
