Located in front of subway and there is shopping mall across the road. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and a bit far to walk. The so called gate to window of the world is not available and locked. Breakfast is simple but ok, however, you should provide coffee and tea (only soy bean). Overall good stay and...

This hotel is older and has no frills but location is good. The hotel was clean and showers were updated. The TVs are hard to figure out but I did eventually. Hotel staff is helpful and spoke enough English to get me checked in/out. Oh, the beds are hard but I understand that's normal in China, unless you're at a...

These hotel location is very strategic, in the heart of Shenzhen city, and the hotel is right in front "Window of the World", and also MRT downtown station right in-front of hotel. Not forget to mention the scenery and architecture, it is like european-portuguese style decor and design. The room is very average, but the scenery outside the hotel is...

Location is convenient to the metro, Holiday Cinema Mall, and area attractions. Quality of accommodation is mediocre at best. Bathrooms are dark. AC shuts off between roughly 3-7AM, so prepare for heat/humidity while sleeping. Many Chinese hotels play this game. WiFi is free, but internet speed is absolutely terrible and unreliable. No cell service on bottom floor for hotspot usage.Self-service...

Three words, noisy, moldy, dirty...I think that pretty much sums it up. Its more like a 1980s motel... I would really not recommend this hotel. There is a plethora of accommodation in Shenzhen- even if you are on a budget.

The hotel's location is very good. Close to the subway station and a large shopping mall oppositive the road. Another great advantage of staying in this hotel is you get the second entry to the WOW which is very handy. You can get out of the theme park to have a dinner outside or rest in the hotel before the...

Location is excellent but the hotel is musty and the rooms are very small. I couldn't believe the prices so I decided to take a go. I'm only here for two nights and last night I was tempted to change hotels. I decided not to. The staff are friendly and the location is great. There are plenty of shops and...

The location of this hotel is very good. Close to subway station and a few tourist spots. The room is clean and nice, however it gets a bit noisy at night since it's just beside the pub street. There is a shopping mall right opposite where you can have more options for food.

City Inn is very conveniently located near the various places of interest for tourists - Window of the world , Splendid China , China Folk Culture Village and Happy Valley . It's really "a value for money" hotel . However , our pleasant stay was somewhat marred by the presence of mosquitoes in the room . We were bitten all...

My fifth time at this hotel now, I usually do some bussines in Shenzhen and have tried 5-6 other hotels in the budget class, most of the really dirty and noisy. But the location of this City inn makes it unike, the surroundings are built as a european town with small bars, there is some night life but not so...
