Reviewed 11 August 2012

Our family comprising of two teenagers and two kids stayed at this Hotel In July 2012, because it was among the few with a Swimming Pool. But sadly, the swimming pool was under renovation!!!
Also, the Staffs and personnel couldn't speak English very well, and since we did not engage a translator, our stay was not very pleasant.
I would advise families like mine to always engage a translator or a guide while travelling to any place in China, since the whole communication problem spoilt our holiday in Shenzhen (we could manage to buy a SIM card to call each other only on the last day of our stay!! That Bad!!

If you are looking for a place to just sleep and shower, then it's a VALUE hotel with CLEAN SHEETS and BED LINENS, and convenient location. Personally I would SKIP THIS HOTEL if I was traveling with my significant other as there are many more other newer hotels in Shenzhen that you should enjoy. Please do not be fooled by the pictures (rooms and lobby) and their claim of 1999 Conde Naste Recommended Hotel.

I know they have a few types of rooms from standard, to deluxe, to business deluxe. But the fixtures, rug, and bathroom are all outdate and should be replaced. You can probably get the standard room around US$35-US$45 per night. But keep in mind you WILL NOT have shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, lotion, toothpaste, etc. All these items (standard at other hotels) will cost about 30 RMB more (approximately extra US$5). Also, continental breakfast was not included with the standard pricing, as it MAY BE with the corporate pricing.

The hotel is very conveniently located 5 minutes walking to the Dongmen shopping district and there is also the Metro subway station right in front of the hotels entrance (Sheko line Hubei station - exit C will get you right in front of the hotel). The cost is 3 RMB (US$0.40) from Lohu Station (border) to the hotel. But I recommend the taxi as it's only a 20 RMB ($3.30) taxi ride from the Lohu station as well.

At the time of review, there is a night club on 4th floor, massage parlor on the 11th floor, and couple of restaurants on the 2nd and 3rd floor.

Stayed for 5 days in a Suite. Room was big and good value for money. Only problem is that it is an old hotel, and clenliness/hygiene could be improved! HAD TO REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF BEDSHEETS BECAUSE THERE WERE PROBABLY DUST MITES! After bedsheets was changed and room "fumigated" it was OK! Good location and access to most areas.

This hotel is extremely beautiful and luxurious for the price they charge. At 450 HKD this is simply the best choice in Shenzhen. Very clean rooms, helpful front staff and lovely breakfast.

First of all I would like to say a few words about the Gold Hotel. The staff and help were top notch. The room was clean and housekeeping was more than helpful anytime I needed something. Second, the restaurants in the hotel were great. I did have an interpreter with me most of the time, but even those few times I didn't, the staff was helpful.
I spent Christmas over there and found that the Chinese people were as excited about the holiday as any American kid. The malls were big and beautiful and the people were very curious about me as I was about them. When I went through Dongmen Mall, I felt safe even though it is well known for pickpockets.
The city is huge and easy to get lost so writing down name of certain locations (in Chinese) is helpful. Taking a taxi is a must. This will take the place of any thrill ride you have ever been on. I can't believe that I didn't witness any road rage. They must know something Americans don't.
I can't wait to go back and visit other areas of China.
Surviving China on two words (hello and thank you) and an interpreter,Steve

Gold Hotel is actually within walking distance to the Dongmen shopping center of Shenzhen but along the main artery road across Shenzhen. Rooms were recently rennovated and are quite good. However, the hotel entrance, lobby and driving up porch is limited so hailing a cab is sometimes difficult. Restaurants are decent but not suitable for westerners.
Generally good for short business stays and for those keen to shop or move around.
