I was disappointed to get walked right past the newly renovated part of the hotel and placed in an old dirty, room, stinking of cigarette smoke, though I specifically requested a newly redecorated room in my reservation (after reading and English review that there was a new and old section in the hotel) and two online conversations a week before my arrival. (here is my original request: Please reserve quiet, non smoking, newly decorated room, away from construction or road side, on high floor. My flight arrives after 12:30am, Sunday morning, December 8th (So I assume I need to reserve evening of the 7th, but Check IN about 1;40am))
They obviously put foreigners into the old section, just to take advantage of us. The HOTEL was at about 10% occupancy the night I stayed there, so no excuses
I also asked the front desk why they reserved an old room for me when I checked in.
I have been working in Shenzhen for over 12 years, This old rooms are a $12-15 value similar to 7 days in or Hantin Express, not $45-50 which perhaps the new rooms might be valued at.
