My room was large and very comfortable. I liked the arrangement and location of the work desk. Wifi speed was pretty good.
The Hotel has good security and is set back off the street The local area includes other hotel, restaurants, and shopping.
Great facilities for business and relaxation.

We enjoyed our stay at South China Hotel. We booked the cheapest room, Garden View with no elevator, however there was no garden view but this was not a problem for us. The room was clean and nice with 2 big double beds. The pool was closed on the first day and the hotel did not inform us of this when we made our booking, which was a shame since we had only booked the place for 2 nights. Also, we found the breakfast to be expensive at 78 yuan each as we are both vegetarians and there was very little choice for us. The hotel has a private beach entrance with some sun beds and the overall surroundings are very pleasant. We still enjoyed our stay here and would come again!

I paid extra for the sea view room. The sea was visible when the tide came in. The receptionist said that was the sea view.

The room safe did not work, the toilet did not flush properly. Reported these faults but nothing was done.

No wifi in the room, had to go downstairs. Last night I stayed in a 100 RMB hotel that had room wifi. Simply not good enough.

The beach access is great but there are other hotels similarly positioned.

The restaurant was very good with friendly staff. They deserve better. Stay elsewhere but do visit the restaurant.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

I just book it from with the chinese website, i paid the rooms for 300RMB per night. They call me later to tell me that i book the price for chinese people and they can't give me the same price as i'm a foreigner. It's a huge shame

We had booked this 4-star hotel for two nights. First of all, there is nothing 4-star about this hotel at all. The receptionists don't speak a word English and the check-in procedures take long. The rooms are large but very poorly furnished, the sofas have foodstains from previous guests. The absolute worst are the bathrooms, you can smell the mouldy shower curtain as soon as you enter. The shower is filthy!
Breakfast is another disappointment as there are no seats available and the buffet set up, choice and quality is horrible.
What's really putting me off is that this is not a cheap hotel.
All in all I have no idea how this place can be rated 4-stars and I would advise anyone to avoid staying in the south china hotel.
