The illustration that shows the hotel at night makes it look really cool, but the reality is a let down. It's still interesting architecture, but not as modern as you would think. The room was nice and clean and the only problem I had, was that there was no window. It wasn't really a problem, since there probably wasn't a view from my room anyway, but a little strange. The worst part about the hotel is the food, but this seems to be the case with a lot of Chinese hotels. Just don't order any Western food and expect it to be recognizable. The area around the hotel is OK, but not a lot of things to do for someone not steeped in Chinese culture. The street next to the hotel is a walking street with a lot of creative studios and such which was interesting to see. Go a little further and you're in deep, side street traditional culture. Staff was fairly helpful.
The hotel is very modern and Im amazed with the design. The room is nice , spacious and comfortable mattress compare to other hotels in china.breakfast is very good too. However the location is rather far from airport , 30 minutes drive and more than an hour to Louhu. But it is really worth it if u are just staying overnight .
We stopped over in ShenZhen for 1 night to continue our trip to Mainland China. This hotel is perfectly located, right in front of the Airport. So we were able to walk to/from the hotel without additional transport expense & time. Although so near to the airport, our overnight sleep was not interrupted by too much noise, no sound of planes landing/taking off was heard. Behind the hotel we could also find a street of local restaurants. Not too fancy, but enough to offer us local cuisines. One thing we were concerned about: similar to other places in China, people tends to spit on the street. So while walking/exploring the place, we had to be mindful to avoid stepping on them - distracting & rather tiresome after a while. Most staff only speaks Chinese, but we were lucky Jay was on duty at that time and his English was rather fluent for a local. All staff including Jay were very friendly and professional. We left our luggage for 3 days and they did take care of it well. No hassle at all. We needed a Mini Van (there were 4 of us with lots of suitcases) to another place and there were friendly 3rd-party transport company staff on the lobby to help us. Since most transport/taxi drivers cannot read English hotel names, I got someone to translate my hotel name&addr into Chinese characters. With my broken Mandarin I was then able to haggle the transport fee to my destination. Having your address in Chinese certainly helps. I can recommend this hotel for its location & service.
