“only good thing is the location”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

I have stayed in this hotel about 12-15 times as i visit shenzhen for work. The only good thing about this hotel is teh location, it is 10 min walk to the HK border.

The rooms are pretty deccent. The hotel staff is a bit rude, and the service is very slow.

The breakfast is horrible.

the only reason i stay here because most people in sz know this hotel and it is very convinient.

I stayed just one night here on business. The hotel is well positioned just a few minutes walk from the LoWu bord crossing from Hong Kong to China so it's very convenient. Check in was the usual slow thoroughness you come to expect in China.

The main foyer area is quite nice and has a decent bar area, hate bar closes at 11:30pm.

The rooms were fine, clean if a little bit tired looking. Likewise for the bathroom, but the shower curtain had that smelly damp odour that I hate.

The bed was extremely firm so best avoided if you like a soft comfortable mattress.

Be aware that there are a number of foot and other massage parlours on the street of this hotel so you are likely to be approached with their services being touted. A polite no thank you is normally accepted if you aren't interested.

When departing for the airport, it was around a 30 minute journey so not too bad.

Overall, I'd stay here again on business if back in Shenzhen.

Very close to Shenzhen Train station (5 minutes to walk). OK sized rooms, some with balcony.
Close to restaurants on walking distanse. Close to LuoHu Commercial City for those who like shopping with negotiations on price :-)
Beware of hard mattresses.

Room Tip: Corner Room in upper floors are recommended. Japanese style rooms & suites are nice.

Just over the border from Hong Kong and within easy reach of the ShenZhen Metro and mainline station for connection to GuangZhou and beyond.
Good sized room with nice bathroom facilities, internet speed good at times poor at others.
Concierge staff very helpful and knowledgeable when pushed!

Only had breakfast there once during the fortnight stay as it was dreadful and way overpriced. Plenty of other choices nearby though.

Only down side to the location was the constant patter of street hustlers nearby; "you want massageee, you want preeety girl" etc etc

Room Tip: Get one away from the lift shaft!

Good hotel despite showing its age a bit [25 years], great location and friendly service but the 3 day stay was spoilt by the noise from the disco in the wee small hours. We finally had to go down to reception to complain and were advised that it would finish at 4.00 a.m. They did however change our room for the following night and we had a decent nights sleep - and view of the railway station. No compensation for the inconvenience and lack of sleep though.

If you are planning a stay make sure that your your is away from the disco!

great hotel with many staff who speak good english. Hotel is located just one block from Lo Wu shopping centre and the lo wu border. There are also many bars and nignt clubs near by. A great location for anyone heading up from Hong Kong for a day or two. Concierge staff especially were very friendly and willing to go that extra step to ensure everything is organised.
