Zhong Tai Lai Hotel
Ranked #146 of 2,866 Hotels in Shenzhen
Reviewed 7 April 2009

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.

No disappointment in booking this hotel with help of all reviewers. A small 8 storey hotel , located in a small street, with no frills (no swimming pool, gym etc) If you want a hotel just for a great night stay, hotel location is fantastic . Local eateries, Mac's , KFC , Starbucks, Japanese fast food ..... the list goes on, good hairdressing salon, famous Dongmen Walking street just round the corner. With the subways just few minutes walk.
Room is clean ,neat spacious . We had 2 adults and a child sleeping comfortably in a King size bed. Except during our 2nd night stay, although we requested for non smoking floor, I could still smell cigrettes. Prompt attention was given to us when we could not figure how the aircon control works. On our departure, as it was during peak hour, the bell boy went all the way out of the hotel's vicinity to get us a cab. Staff were generally friendly. Be sure to have the Chinese name of hotel ready and remeber to tell cab driver that it is at Dongmen- Lao Jie(Old street in Mandarin). Once hopped into a cab not knowing where the hotel, but knowing to speak Mandarin, we could give direction.

Hotel was quite rigid about late check out, extension given for only an hour. Recommended hotel. (BTW , a new block of hotel is being built)
