When travelling in China, once you leave the major cities you can expect hotels to disappoint. Shantou is a place with very few foreign visitors so we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Believe me, I've been in some scary hotels in China and this one definitely won't be on my list of places to miss. The staff were helpful...

The rooms at this hotel are very outdated. The carpet in the rooms is disgusting. The non smoking rooms smell like smoke and the bed is like sleeping on the floor. Very little English is spoken at the hotel. The buffet is 100% Asian unless you want spaghetti for breakfast. When you arrive you will notice the beautiful lobby, but...

The staff of holiday are friendly. The location is convenient especially when you travel by coach from Hong Kong. In house restaurants serve good eastern and western cuisine. One of the hotels that value for money.

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...

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....

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,...

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...

“Stay at the back of the hotel where you don't have the main road. Just prepare yourself for typical Chinese hard mattresses.”

“Always ask for a western "Non smoking" room, these are much nicer and cleaner and only no smell of cigarette smoke.”

“Ask for a City view room on a higher floor away from the elevator. Even if you are a smoker you might want to choose a non smoking room and smoke down in the lobby area. The smoking rooms are terrible.”
