“Makes Shenzhen a bit more tolerable”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

Okay, I don't like Shenzhen - there, I've said it. It's not one of my favorite cities. It seems to be the product more of some 60's era city planner rather than the result of natural growth. It is crowded, noisy and lacking the charm of most cities in China. So I'm biased.

But the Lushan Hotel, despite its location right in the middle of everything in LouHu does help mitigate my dislike of Shenzhen. It is within a few blocks of the Guo Mao subway stop. The lobby is grand and even has a no smoking section!! The staff has pretty good English skills and tries to be very helpful. The rooms are rather large and well appointed, although much of the furniture is so old school as to be comical. Like many places in tropical China, the smell of mold is present, but less so here. The window glazing keeps out the noise of the busy intersection and makes for a comfortable and quiet room. There is free wired Internet in the rooms - so iPad owners must head to the lobby for Wifi. Breakfast at Lushan is pretty good.The location of the breakfast room overlooks the lobby on one side and the city of the other. The breakfast was quite good with congee, rice, noodles and steamed buns and fruit, but westerners might not find their usual breakfast food. When I was there a couple of elevators were out making for long waits.

Lushan is a good value, but one wishes it were cleaner, brighter, and more up to date.

When I travel to another country, either on business or for leisure, I tend not to spend my whole time in the hotel, but simply use it as a base. Having travelled to Shenzhen on many occasions, I found the Lushan Hotel to be always perfect for my needs. I stayed the twice in 2005 and 4 times in 2006

Its clean, well presented, the staff are always helpful, and although I don't speak Chinese yet, the level of English of the staff was more than adequate. Free Broadband internet in the room (on a cable, not some dodgy Wi-Fi connection!) NB if want free Wi-Fi in China, goto Starbucks - they all offer it! (Yes, FREE! Come on UK, sort it out!)

Its ideally situated in the centre of LouHu district, within easy walking distance of the shops and the metro station (Guo Mao). I hardly every eat at the hotel I stay in, and the big advantage of the Lushan is that there are so many fantastic restaurants close by. If you spend your time eating in hotels or American junk food chains, you'll miss out on some of the best cuisine imaginable.

...and for £30 per night - its a bargain!

Reviewed 1 November 2006

Rooms old, furniture dated and tatty, mould on walls (coming through wallpaper), mould around shower / bath. Beds very uncomfortable, sound-proofing not good.

Restaurant okay for Chinese Food, ordered Steak one night which had to be sent back as it was not fresh and most definately off.

If you have to spend one night, then the hotel is in a good position, be warned though, the staff's understanding of English is poor so always ask them to repeat back what you have said to make sure they understand.

A good example, I ordered tea and toast from room service, a member of staff was sent up to take my order, the tray arrived with one sachet of Jam, one of Butter and some tea, but no toast to go with it, tried to explain but in the end gave up.

One upside is within 5 minutes walking distance is the shopping centre that has a Starbucks, Pizza Hut and KFC so if you are missing Western food a good place to fill up.
