Service is good. Staffs are friendly. Sound proofing needs improvement. Noise from next door/corridor could be heard. Walking distance to 3 different metro lines.

Good 6.0

Overall I would say Novotel Shenzhen doesn’t reach our expectations. The first night we ordered food from the hotel and it came with cold food did’t taste good and also a terribly torn nappkin that’s really unacceptable. Before we were thinking to have breakfast in the hotel but after this we decided not to. And other thing is the hotel not even provide convertor and which it is a very basic equipment. Therefore the only socket we can use is the USB socket, but we found out it didn’t work since they told us due to the hotel policy they blocked the socket. That’s really odd. After we complained, they gave me one convertor and which didn’t work neither. I would say really speechless for this experience. Only the bed it was comfortable.

It’s impressive, check in and out very quickly and people are patient. Rooms are clean, beverages in the rooms are free and refill everyday. Price was good, I’ll book it again when I travel to Shenzhen.
