Hotel allows smoking in rooms. So ask for a non smoking floor if this is a problem. It's a good quality property. Bit old though. Chinese style hotel. Free wifi in foyer. Couldn't get room wifi to work though. They offer a single person room that's very cheap. Easy access to shopping, food banks etc. no other facilities just a bar and card room. Plenty of food and drink less than 5 mins walk or at hotel next door.

If you just want a cheap but good quality room. This is the go. Near the electronics shopping district.

This is one of the closest hotels to SEG Mart.

Hotel is clean, chinese-style western. There's free internet and close to SEG Mart, so you can dash in, dump your shopping and go back for more.

There's a Korean restaurant round the back that is really quite good, with huge heaping servings, and it's next to a shopping mall underground.

I'd stay here - or at one of the spas at Lok Ma Chau or Luo Hu.

It's like visiting an old friend. The purpose of staying is really to see if anything has changed after my last stay five years ago. Fortunately, this hotel is just as I remember it , which is great. Every cab driver knows this hotel which is part of the reasons why I put up here. Don't get me wrong, this is no 5 star, or even international 4 star hotel and there are certainly a lot of much more upmarket hotels in Shenzhen but if you want to experience a Chinese-take on Western Style accommodation, then it's a great choice. Hotels.com seems to have great deals on this hotel. I got a Executive room with breakfast for a US$70/night. Service was efficient, e.g. Wifi signals was weak in my room and they kindly set up a modem via the in room ethernet for my room. Can't complain. For a forty-plus year old property in a city where 5 -year- old buildings are considered old school, it's doing great!

The service at this hotel is terrible! I am from the US - I booked 4 executive level rooms through E-Long. When we arrived, the hotel had canceled our rooms because of over-booking. They basically didn't care - once they informed us of the cancelation they wouldn't even talk to us to try and help us out. Elong wasn't of much help either to be honest. I finally had to locate a hotel and tell Elong to contact them. Also, from the looks of the lobby this is probably a 2 star hotel - maybe a 3 star at most.

The Shenzhen Shanghai hotel is a nice hotel. I had a “standard” room (there is a lower, “common” room) that came with free internet, and a nice Chinese breakfast. The room was large and well appointed with a flat panel TV, CNN and Bloomberg in English. Nice bathroom with standard paper-bag amenities. Comfortable bed, non smoking rooms, and three phones (scale of 1 to 5). Not much around the hotel and the area is under construction. Taxi is 20 RMB from Hang Gang Port and there is subway station about two blocks away. If you get a good rate, you will like this hotel and I recommend it.
I had a problem as the hotels.com reservation was not found, even with a copy of it. The front staff was competent in English and gave me a rate at only a slightly higher rate. It was the 25th anniversary for the hotel so I got to pick a small gift as a result.

Situated in midst of busy Shennan Middle Road, it gives you quick access to all that's important to survive in Shenzhen. The MTR station is a 2 min. walk, at the basement of the mall next door, walk a few blocks behind to scour restos with awesome food, then walk a little further, and you'll find yourself in one of the biggest shopping districts in this side of town.

Compared to hotel rooms in HK, theirs is a roomy surprise! Oriental decor rules here, but nothing too heavy or ornate. Our Superior (Deluxe) room came with free LAN internet, and had a bathtub with complete amenities. The only bad things I found were: The carpet needs some deep cleaning, and the mini bar was located deep inside the built-in counter. You had to CROUCH to get your stuff.

The pleasant surprises came in the details: upon return, there were little origami creations on the bed (one heart-shaped, one crane), and we had 2 bricks of complimentary milk (which tasted a bit like diluted Yakult, yum). To help you sleep better, they offer complimentary PILLOWS. I chose the buckwheat (the smell was very faint already) while my colleague opted for the pillow with lumbar support.

The Western cafe had a decent selection of Asian and Western food,and was pretty good! The staff was very friendly, and in this predominantly-Chinese speaking country, the staff was able to communicate well with us in conversational english.

Lastly, after a long day of walking and shopping, its great to know that there's a foot massage salon located at the ground floor, at the side. You can always call for room service (which we did) Their massage technique wasn't par excellance, but really helped soothe our aching feet and legs. 1 hr = RMB 100 per pax.

The room we had was well equipped (toiletries, dressing gowns, hair dryer, large TV) and had very comfortable beds.
The location was great - near to shops restaurants etc - yet our room had a lovely view over the park.
The staff spoke English to varying degrees - they were very helpful when we encountered a problem with our air tickets and were able to sort it out for us over the phone.
We did not have breakfast in the hotel as there did not seem to be western style food on the menu
Overall, this hotel was very good value for money.
