thanks to all who tripadvisor reviewers who recommended this place, it was GREAT! awesome little gem tucked behind that boring facade. Comfortable & modern rooms, polite staff and inexpensive. we stayed at Days Inn twice, once in a double (RMB429) room and the second time in a twin room (RMB388). I like the twin room better, its nicer and feels bigger (but smaller bathroom) and has an interesting ceiling light design. the location is perfect - next to LaoJie train station and in the middle of Dongmen. The entrance is a bit hard to find if you're coming from the train station but its round the corner from the optometrist. Nearby are tons of shopping & eating places and a huge PackNShop supermarket/deparment store (like Myer/David Jones). The buffet breakfast is so-so (RMB30), mostly Asian fare, but OK if you're in a hurry to be somewhere and need a quick place to eat. If you want cheap accomodation, there are plenty of reasonable motels everywhere in shenzhen for half the price or less. But if you want somwhere comfortable, quiet & safe, this is an awesome little hotel for RMB338 a night (available if you book online), otherwise its around RMB388-RMB429 a night.
Next door they're building the Days Hotel which will be completed end of 2009 which may be worth trying too.
