I stayed here for 2 nights recently with 2 friends. There was a mix up at reception with our rooms, which was annoying after a 9.5 hour overnight flight. But it was finally sorted after getting our message across to the non-English speaking reception staff. My room was quite nice, larger than normal hotel rooms with an extra large bed,...

The check in was swift but the suite i got 418 was musky, old and the bed was terribly hard. I requested to change into a normal room and was given 411. It is slightly better but bed is still uncomfortable. The chamber maid is friendly. Breakfast staff was unsure of what they were doing ( they claimed that front...

Only one foreign language channel – none of the HBO..Discovery … as described in the Booklet. The remote is fully in Chinese The pictures describing the hotel on website are lying compare to reality Nobody at reception can understand when I asked an iron my shirts. Finally after succeeding; the iron and the table were prehistorical.

This hotel deserves no more than three stars. It had better daya in the past, I'm visiting it since 2007 and its quality and level off service declined a lot. Still it is OK for small trips being clean and with a good location.

This is the 3rd time I come to this hotel only because it is 5min walking distance to my Shenzhen office else I'd choose something else as it is not tailored to suit foreigners. Most of things are written in chinese with no translation, even the TV remote is all in Chinese. Staff knowledge of English is in general very...

Very disappointed with the service and grade of the hotel. Should be rated a 3 star hotel. The staff could barely speak English and the breakfast variety was extremely limited and very oily. The chef had no idea what a scrambled egg was. Recommended a client that we stay at this hotel and was truly embarrassed that I had recommended...

Not the best Novotel I have stayed in but adequate in every respect in terms of value for money and location. Lobby area is a little sparse and not particularly comfortable and no real bar atmosphere. Dinner buffet had reasonable choice and decent quality. Front desk and Concierge were helpful and efficient.

We stayed here for 3 nights over the mid-autumn festival and it was rather enjoyable. Full review of stay below. A taxi from the SZ airport to this hotel should be around RMB130 (or no more than RMB150 for non-peak traffic hours). A travel tip for you is to get the hotel name ready in Chinese before you arrive as...

Stayed in this hotel for 11 nights on a business trip. Location is close to Shenzhen city centre and it's 5 minutes walk to Grand Theatre metro station. Metro line 9 station will be even closer once it is open (in construction now). Staff at reception speak basic English to sort everything (was transferred to speak with them when other...
