“Great location and bad breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

I stayed in the hotel for 3 days and 2 nights from 12 - 14 March 2013.

The one thing I liked about the hotel is the great location, near the Guomao metro station and near the city where you can buy lots of cheap merchandise. Rooms were nice, although there were signs of wear especially in the bathrooms. Free Wi-Fi (call the operator for the password) and cable internet was good. TV had mostly chinese channels so I didn't bother watching much of it.

However, the free breakfast isn't for everybody. If you're not an adventurous foreigner or someone who enjoys real chinese food, the free breakfast is a waste. Food choices were very limited and only weird chinese food that I'm not used to was served. Don't expect eggs and bacon, but chicken feet and other sort of food the people in China love. There are, however, nearby eateries where you can go to clear your morning hunger.

Overall, for a short stay, this hotel would be a good choice given the reasonable prices. I, however, probably wouldn't stay here again if given a choice, but that's just me.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

I stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights 18~20th April 2013, since there were no rooms available in my regular stay Huawiang Plaza Hotel due to a Medical Fair. It is very close in fact as soon as you come out of the Exit of Hubei Station. The price was RMB580 incl. breakfast. I was given a room which was in the old wing, and had quite worn out fittings but I insisted to move out if I was not given a room in the new wing the for the balance 2 days. Having got into the newer room on a higher floor it was a much better experience, the bathroom was quite good, the TV had no English channels, and the breakfast was very poor for westerners. In fact the food service and banquet room where it was served had old carpets and was quote un-hygenic. Won't stay here again, even though it was in the Luohu area and had good shopping and night life very close by. The swimming pool was in a mess un-operational and was a very poor sight from my room. The spa in the Hotel was quite ok.

Room Tip: Go for the higher floors, and new rooms, bargain for a better price. And don't opt for the break...

Checked in for 1 night for about RMB 450 a night inclusive of breakfast.

Dont believe their claims on Trip Advisor about wifi. Its only available in lobby and not in rooms. Cable internet is available in rooms but its unreliable.

Room is largish and need s a bit of a refurb. Bed clean and comfy. No English channels on TV.

Location good and many restaurants close by.

Bit disconcerting to be propositioned by a "lady of the night" in hotel lobby at about 9pm in full view of the reception. Guess she either worked in the spa in the hotel or the club on 2nd floor.

Breakfast was Ok with a mix of chinese and western food.

The hotel was fine , location near metro station , 7 eleven gate inside hotel lobby , size of room is great , excellent value of money , free breakfast , free internet cable that's great
BUT the breakfast is not suitable for foreigners , the service was poor , accordingly this hotel is suitable only for the Chinese and not recommended for foreigners

The hotel is in a great part of town. The Gongmen shopping area is 2 blocks away. If you stray a 1km away from the hotel you can she some old school Shenzhen. After I came back from Hong Kong we stayed at the Luohu hotel for 1 more night. They have Taxis out front all the time. The TV was a CRT, but its not like you can understand the shows anyways. The bed kind of sucked. It was very hard, but I slept fine

There area few hotels with similar names so if you are being picked up be sure to give the address.

There is supposed to be a nightclub, but its just a dry karaoke bar. 3 blocks there is a great pool hall that serves beer rather then the night club 2 blocks away that was way loud and try and charge a cover to get in.

My family and I stayed three nights at this hotel and found it quite nice. The rooms were standard size, not as big as US hotels but average for the nicer Chinese hotels.
The room was clean and the staff was helpful. The hotel was in a convenient location for us. We took the subway to our destinations and it was only about a block away. We found plenty of good restaurants nearby.
Very pleased and a good value.
