While my visit to Shantou, I stayed in this hotel for one night and found it to be very good. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is quite helpful. Buffet Breakfast is OK. One gets value for the money paid. Not an expensive hotel but good for a business trip.

It is definitely not a 5 star hotel .. I would rate is as a high 3*! A pretty lonely hotel with ok rooms, terrible breakfast. Not a place that I would look forward to going back ... it was my first trip to Shantou and my hosts suggested this hotel (a recommendation I normally don't anywhere, especially in China!)...

Our relatives booked a room for us from new apartment building next to the old Regency Hotel. It is way cleaner & cheaper. 4 of us enjoyed the big room, big beds & nice shower. But the room has strong smoking smell which only the strong air conditioner can relieve the smell a little bit. We tried to open the...

I have stayed in the Regency several times over the last 7 years and at first found it novel and lots of fun. It has started to get dated but they are upgrading it slowly. They have a lot of tour and large groups at the hotel due to the large banquet facilities. They need to rip out all the...

I've stayed in worse, but none with a harder mattress. I don't mean hard by American standards, I mean hard like I have bruises from sleeping. Other than that the hotel is fine, close to Il Santo restaurant and across the street from WalMart (great for snack shopping).

Apparently popular with business travelers and locals alike (multiple weddings were going on during my visit), property felt somewhat dated. Carpets, elevators and rooms had faint aroma of smoke. Room was well appointed, however I was unable to control the temperature and was quite cold. The mattress is unquestionably the hardest I have ever slept on, literally bruising my sides!!...

I have been staying at this hotel on business for the better part of 10 years. It is starting to show its age, but they have been remodeling it and as of late, I have gotten newly decorated rooms lately on the upper floors that are non-smoking and very nice and with new carpets etc... Food is typical local and...

I used to stay in Regency in 2005-2007...Since then it looks like the rooms haven't been rennovated, the furniture looks older, the carpets as well...I could rate it as 4,5-star hotel back then...Now it can only pass as 3-3,5-star...Service is OK, but we do I have to pay for Internet? There's no wi-fi in the room, in the lobby only...

Check-in was slow, and staff wasn't terrible bi-lingual (nor am I so I don't hold it against them, they just didn't seem like they wanted to help). I thought they had put a box-spring on top of another box spring but apparently that's what passed as a mattress. This was only non-smoking in the sense that they added a non...
