The Honlux Apartment hotel is a solid 3 star right on Sea World Plaza which is expat-central Shenzhen. Check took in a little longer than it should have because of the search for my visa stamp. English was fine. This is a converted apartment building (thus the name). My room looked out directly over the plaza and was average size for this class hotel. It was a non-smoking room but it still had a little staleness. There was a small sitting area, average size flat screen TV, average comfort single bed, and a few items in a basket mini-bar. They provided two free bottles of water and, a nice touch, two tiny Toberlone candy bars. There is both construction and entertainment going on outside, and though there is soundproofing, it does not quite get it all. The bathroom was smallish with corner shower, single sink, and granite counter tops. You will get the full set of Chinese hotel amenities you would find at better hotels. The internet was free and fairly fast. The hotel is right on Sea World plaza so expect all of the western restaurants, both chains and styles, that you would want (including upscale prices). The hotel is steps away from the Sea World metro station and one metro stop (with short bus connect) from the Hong Kong Ferry. On slow nights, you will find 4 star hotels for the same price.
Room is OK. Located in the seaworld trendy area. Easy access from airport with ferry terminal 1-2 miles from hotel. Taxis always nearby available. Rooms smell a bit for cigarets as well as hallways. People smoke a lot in china. Carpet floors don't help. Overall a good spot with a good price.
Good service, room size is good, always hot water, and a nice buffet breakfast! The staff is nice and professional. I'd like to recognize Fish at the front desk for always taking good care of me and always smiling! Internet is a bit slow, but otherwise, would recommend this hotel.
This place is located a 1 min walk from Sea World metro station. Restaurants, bars and shops are right on the doorstep. This was a real bonus for my husband and I who were visiting for 1 night from Hong Kong. The hotel is clean and comfortable. I'd say it is around 3/4 star. Bed was really comfortable and the bathroom reasonable - it was a little on the tired side though. Flatscreen TV with western channels CNN, Discovery etc. Toileteries provided. Excellent free wifi connection. 2 bottles of complimentary mineral water provided. Service was friendly. Blackout curtains were good and room was opposite side of sea world so was quiet. No smell of smoke that you get in Chinese hotels sometimes. We did have to ask for an extra towel as this hotel is primarily a business hotel with 1 occupant in the rooms usually I think. This was rectified whilst we were out. I'd recommend this place as a convenient and comfortable place to stay in Shenzhen.
I've stayed here 3 times over the last 3 months. Each visit has been perfect. Prices are good, rooms are clean, Internet is 'hong kong' connection (no China firewall issues). Nightly turn down. Fast housekeeping. Great staff and service -- always. Unique things: - Good dry cleaning. A 'bag' for $10 for sundries... Or, 3 free pieces of wash per day. Nice touch for long trips using a carry on only. - Sea World. This is 'in' sea world. If you long for something from (name any country) there is a restaurant here that will make you happy. (Sea world is an open air mall, not a park). - Just as far from anywhere - as anywhere. I've stayed in Bao'an to be near mfg -- but the difference is at night you can do stuff here. In Bao'an there is nothing. It's an 'hour' to get anywhere. About the same as anywhere else. And Shekou is near the border crossing and has a ferry to HKG Central. Stuff I'd love to see improve: - Breakfast is ok. I don't know why Bacon in Asia is soggy. No difference here. I stick to eggs. Universal. Actually, restaurant is a bit disappointing overall. With so many great outside restaurants, I guess they just don't want to compete? - Internet is acceptable but could be a tad faster. Hard to stream Hangouts for video calls but voice is fine. Definitely the place to stay in Shenzhen for business.
great locations to many bars and restaurants. waliking distance to the Shekou Ferry terminal. day trips to Hong Kong are easy and convienient. I have stayed here several times and will again. The room rates are reasonable and I recommend not paying for the breakfast. you can walk 30 meters to Star Bucks, KFC, Mcdonalds or several other breakfast places.
- Rooms size is good and standard. The room was also clean, but the bathroom looked old.and somehow it smell was bad. - The curtins of the windows blocks the sun light completely, this was a very good point to me - Noise isolation from street and from other rooms was not good enough. - I did not try the breakfast - Staff are quite friendly and quick - Wifi was not good enough - Location is very good, from room windows you can see nice views and you may have a nice walking around. - For me, I expected from this price, about 95 Euro per night
Stayed here for a few days including the weekend since it has a lot of restaurants nearby and the Shekou Port going to Hongkong is just one metro stop away. The hotel is clean, simple and my room was great! The cleaning lady is very nice and always has a smile on her face. I was also surprised that they have daily free laundry for some simple clothes. They also provided earplugs for the construction just outside the window but in my entire stay I didn't need it cos there wasn't any noise I can hear. The only downside is the limited selection for breakfast. One or two days will be enough to have breakfast here. If more days you can go to the nearby kfc or mcdonald's or starbucks.
I stayed in this hotel for 2 months. As the hotel was refurbished not long time ago, the room quality is quite good, very clean. The location is great and is very near to Sea World and surrounded by many restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is western style and good enough. The same restaurant is serving dinner also but the menu is very limited. However with all the restaurant outside, it was not a big issue for me. The biggest withdraw of this hotel is the noise from the street. Being in the middle of entertainment area, it's suffers from quite a lot of noise from outside, especially when there is a big crowd. Happen many times to wake up in the middle of the night because some person start screaming or speak too loud.
Weekend in Shekou, instead of going to Hilton, friends recommend to go to Honlux, price was good for the location as all of the main bars and restaurants are in walking distance, first room was a corner room, really noisy but they changed the room immediately and that room was good. Highly recommended hotel in Shekou
