Stayed one weekend at the Hotel Novotel Shenzhen Bauhinia in late June.

The Hotel is less than 10 minutes' walk from a metro station, the Qiao Cheng Dong Station. There are no shops or restaurants, no direction signs (and sometimes, no pedestrians) between the Station and the Hotel, so make sure you know the way if you are using the metro to get there. Taxi, where there are always several waiting at the Hotel, is the most convenient way to get to and fro.

The Hotel is at least one metro stop away from the Shenbzhen theme parks and so it is not exactly the most convenient hotel for visting those theme parks (there are plenty of hotels around the theme parks actually). Neither is the Hotel near the financial district or shopping centres. It seems that the Hotel mainly caters for conference or meetings attending guests staying there for a night or two.

Keep your patience when using the electronic room card. The lock of the room was extremely slow in responding to the room card. It took me five minutes to open the door of the room (and this happened more than twice during my stay!).

The Hotel has a big outdoor swimming pool surrounded by plenty of trees. It is adjacent to the Shenzhen International Garden and Flower Expo Park, which is a big park with several Chinese style pavilions, a man made lake, jogging track, exhibition halls, etc. All these help to give the Hotel a 'resort feel' . So it is not a bad idea to spend a weekend in this Hotel despite the fact that it is basically a business hotel.

I had the buffet dinner and breakfast in the Hotel because there is no restaurant in the vicinity. There were not many choices of food and they were greasy and lukewarm. I would therefore suggest guests staying at the Hotel to take a taxi downtown to find a better value for money restaurant.

Stayed for 4 days and frankly wished I could have stayed longer! the location is great as its in central, but just far enough away from hustle and bustle, a 5 minute walk and you are slap bang in central. The rooms were huge, super clean, with free mini bar (special promo). Can watch TV from the bathroom, which was very nice.

If you are going to Shenzhen I would advoid this hotel. The staff were rude and questioned my partner "are you really a doctor?" with a laugh, which was unacceptable.
The swimming pool looks like it hasn't been maintained since the hotel was opened, the rooms had very poorly done paint jobs, the bed was probably the hardest I have ever slept on. The breakfast buffet was average.

When we came to check out they tried to tell us that we stayed for two nights and charge us extra when we were there all of eight hours.

There are many good hotels to stay in Shenzhen, this is not one of them and most definitly does not deserve its 4 star rating. It would be a 2.5 to 3 max

First of all we stayed in this hotel because of its easy access to Splendid China theme park and the Botanical Garden as well as the choice of restaurants at OCT nearby. All are within 15 - 20 mins walk. And the nearest metro station is 10 mins walk at the most.
This hotel was a good find. Because it was our first stay we were upgraded to a Business room which was very comfortable. The rooms aren't huge but are big enough to accommodate two people and the bathroom is well appointed with a walk in shower big enough for two.
The Queen bed was surprisingly comfortable for China, not too hard, not too soft with excellent pillows. Air conditioning/heating works efficiently. Everything was clean and well decorated; the hotel is modern in the Novotel style.
The hotel is situated right next to the Botanical Gardens and so, despite a 3 lane road outside, is very quiet ensuring a good night's sleep. Flat screen TV is easy to operate and the mini-bar is free to use (reasonably well stocked with beer, fruit juice and water). Another bonus is that free internet is available in the rooms.
On the business floor there's a complimentary buffet breakfast consisting of fruits, cereals, Danish pastries, croissants and toast, coffee, tea and fruit juice. So we didn't try the restaurant breakfast.
Service was impeccable with a friendly reception when we arrived and a doorman who gave us directions to Splendid China, though he wanted to call us a taxi.
There's a sizeable outdoor pool in the hotel gardens, but we didn't try it because it was out of action in the winter. Should be nice in warmer weather, though.
Frankly, if you book online, this hotel is a fantastic bargain, probably because its location isn't the most popular. But with the metro relatively close I would say its central location is ideal to explore Shenzhen. Highly recommended.
