Some relatives booked this place for us. The hotel was dated, needed a facelift and was very quiet. I think the 5 star rating was a bit of a joke and not sure how the hotel qualified for that. The room was tiny for our family of 4 with 2 young kids. The room didn't feel clean at all; the... More

This hotel has been open for sometime. It is large but quiet. It is in a good location and shopping and bars have opened around it. The rooms are good size and comfortable. The buffet is standard for such a hotel

Stayed here a few times on business, huge rooms and helpful staff. Very local. Reasonably priced executive style rooms. The buffet at lunch is fantastic, wide choice and open most of the day. Great hotel.

Frankly, it is slightly far from normal 5 star hotel. But I would stay the hotel again when I go to Shantou. Comparing to other hotels in the city, this hotel is above than average grade. Room service's most menu was not available at night, but the coffee was bot bad.. Even it took quite long time to be served.... More

I have stayed here many times over the past 8 years. I have always found it pretty good but with the few Chinese quirks. Overall this place is fine, rooms are clean and tidy if a little dated, Beds are the hardest I've ever come across, but i get a good nights sleep. The food is semi acceptable, fairly chinese...

Stayed for 1 night of business travel. Surely it's not an international standard 5 star, but locally categorized only. The room and towel looks clean, but suspect that I was biten by bugs in bed and woke me up. Besides, I smell something on the bedding, surely they don't change or clean every time they have a new check in,... More

Stayed there a few times in the last few years. Went there with family members to visit local relatives. Came by coach from highway so this hotel is very conveniently located plus the coach's terminal is right at the hotel. So very attractive for travelers not coming by plane. But that's about it. Breakfast is very average. But cooking quality... More

I have been staying at this hotel many times over the last 7-8 years. I think the quality is pretty good, though the rooms are starting to be a bit worn out. Breakfast is mainly Chinese, this could have been better seen from a western travellers point of view. Im so happy to see my good friend Henry in the... More

While my visit to Shantou, I stayed in this hotel for one night and found it to be very good. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is quite helpful. Buffet Breakfast is OK. One gets value for the money paid. Not an expensive hotel but good for a business trip.

It is definitely not a 5 star hotel .. I would rate is as a high 3*! A pretty lonely hotel with ok rooms, terrible breakfast. Not a place that I would look forward to going back ... it was my first trip to Shantou and my hosts suggested this hotel (a recommendation I normally don't anywhere, especially in China!)... More
