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.
The Hotel was clean as well as the room; but it wasn't what we were expecting. It is very dificult to communicate with the staff because of the lack of English. They are very friendly and try to help, but it is a challenge. The area wasn't the best.
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 staffs are friendly but cant speak english. We book a twin bed rooms and realise there is no door to the toilets. I had attached photos to show the room. The bed is acceptable hard. On the first night, we found a towel with holes in our bathroom and had feedback for change. There is a massage parlor nearby that provides 8.8% discount if you stay in this hotel. We came for business stay hence the area does not have any shopping areas nearby. However, there are restaurants and convenient shop near the hotel.
I had 5 nights at the green oasis, i flew to Hong Kong and then a taxi to the green oasis which cost 200Rmb £20 which i thought was good value as its a fair trip.
The Hotel inst the same as the main image and the taxi driver took a while to find it , it is near a very busy cross section where there is a bus park and every one beeps all day and night. There are men that drive around on mopeds and honk at everyone if they want a lift, the taxis seem to honk at them and the busses at the taxis
The room could do with a lick of paint, it was cleaned daily and the cleaners where very friendly and would always say hello, the bed was rock hard but after a couple of nights i got used to it. I forgot how busy China is, there are not many white people in this area i saw 7 all week and be prepared to be pointed at by children and adults.
I felt quite safe walking around but im a large 46 year old male. Have a wlk down to Hiya Hyper mall and when you come out the doors near Kentucky turn right walk about 50 yards and then turn right again and there is a Market, its quite pungent but worth a walk around, its polite to ask if you can take a picture point at the camera and the peole and they will nod or shake their heads.
Have a good trip if you go.
