“budget hotel, but VERY noisy”
Reviewed 23 December 2008

Bossfield Hotel Shenzhen. Room 2509.

Waiting line to check in with only one staff. Staff with ABSOLUTEDLY NO English. Think budget. Think 2 star at the most.

Breakfast include. rmb 418 per night. Free broadband internet services. Beige room carpet are heavily stained and look stomach turning terrible dirty. After 9am next morning, extremely noisy heavy equipment (like jack hammer) at work few floors below. This hotel NEVER notified us of this. Otherwise, we would NOT even check in. Was plan to stay for the week, but check out next morning.

Mixed and busy neighborhood. I would not recommend Westerners to wonder around at night outside. So so lobby and front entrance. Unable to find the Swimming pool. I think they claim the tiny sauna as a real swimming pool.

Taxi to Western most (nearest) Shenzhen subway station “Windows of the World” is around 35 to 40rmb. You must take the Shenzhen red taxi to go into Shenzhen city or near the border crossing. The local Boan taxi is green.

Thin walls, very noisy neighboring rooms. Everybody loved their full blast loud TV. Everybody was having shouting sessions at all hours way passed midnight. If you want quiet and good night sleep, this is not it. Passed midnight, we requested room change to another quiet and non-smoking room to catch some sleep. Staff came and made excuses in Mandarin which we could understand much and left.

Air Conditioning works. But like ALL Shenzhen hotels (regardless top 5 to 2 star hotels), this hotel turn off the air conditioning at 3am. So if you have no choice but use the only heavy thick blanket, you shall be awakened, sweating profusely at 3am, like us. Terrible air condition vent design. It aims directly at your head while in bed. WTF.

This hotel is carter mainly to locals. Their main business revenue is obviously from the second floor Karaoke bar – KTV Club. When the elevator opened at that floor, many thinly dressed heavy makeup girls lined up at the elevator to be selected and saying their greetings. Rooms have condoms conveniently for sale. The Chinese restaurant seemed of high quality and popular with locals.

No soap dish for shower / tub. Strange.

Asked for no smoking room. But this room definitely has smoking smell. Also, room has musty smell.

Reviewed 5 September 2007

I'm always skeptical of non-branded hotels in China, especially in Shenzhen. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Bossfield hotel...The food is palatable, not great, but in 3 nights there recently I did not get sick (which alone is a huge accomplishment in China). Staff is very friendly and inviting, despite the fact they often struggle with English. The rooms are huge, yet typical China with cheaper decor. Bed was pretty comfortable. Internet in the room worked great, TV was minimal (expected in China). I've stayed at MUCH worse places in China, and some better, but I'll surely stay at the Bossfield again.
