Nice hotel. Reception will call the taxis for you if you're a foreigner since it will be you're only means of major transport.

Rooms have wired LAN internet for free, and paid service should you choose the wireless one. But there are lounges in the hotel where the wireless connection is free.

Room is comfortable. Mine had fresh apples and pears almost everyday and the minibar is consumable.

Staff is very friendly, you can ask them for a card to write down the chinese name of the destination you want to go to and use the same card to get back.

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.
